    Thank you so much for re posting this weeks instalment from Nine Lives, Sue. I am emailing you because the links are not opening it. Not sure where the problem lies, but I have been having trouble with most comment boxes too. I have to copy and paste any of my comments, as they are just not accepted the first time. Hey Ho, it is all sent to try us, isn’t it? Best wishes Jaye
