None of those for me so far. I see you have your family tuned into your hobbies. Most of mine would whack the moths with a newspaper and trample on any caterpillars that cross their path!

Amanda - Cheers, I am trying to get up to your standards....

Nigel - I get Angle shades on and off through the year and Chestnut at the start of each year, but the Red line Q and GB Cres are more noteworthy, but annual.

I think people get in touch with me to see just how far my eccentricities will go. So far they know no bounds!
