Thank you for the morale boosters Russ and others. I guess you recognise

Ask people for money? Not me Gunga Din.
Maybe part of my reticence stems from feeling uncomfortable myself when
others ask me for a donation and I anticipate others may feel the same.
Maybe I'm just a miserable bugger, who knows? who cares? I'm off birding

Now, where do I send the cheque?
