Hi Pete,

we have a challenge, i dont think i can add a photo to it. Do you think you might be able to post it again with the picture if that is too much of trouble for you :). Please accept my apologies, the platform for blogging is still evolving ( and i am still learning the functionality of platform)

regards

Anish
