    American, English, makes no odds, men are men and I did make a mistake even though I proof read it to death but my dyslexia sneaks in and batter's me round the head now and then.
    Personally Pearly may have liked the Americans but you can't beat a good man with Geordie accent :12::12: :inlove: :thumbsup:

    (But that doesn't mean I won't :roflmao::roflmao:)
