Pure as the driven snow: I always thought it should be pure as the new-fallen snow, but some American starlet (Mae West?) compared the purity of her deliciously wicked self to the driven snow, and I guess like Gresham's Law with money, "bad metaphors drive out good."

*strolls in, pretending not to notice the previous, and completely fictious, referrals to his more amorous side* Hi, Billy, welcome aboard! :-) You might have noticed that it's been quite some time since the last post in this thread. This is because there's a new "Newcomers Welcome"-thread every week, to go to the newest thread, click here: http://www.h2g2.com/F617?thread=65179 Cheers, ~Bistro

Hi Bistro,thanks for the advice. As you will have guessed, I'm a bit of a part timer so three weeks between me popping in is not unusual.
But i'll be around at some point.
Later,
little billy molson

You're welcome,

Just pop into the forum with the newest date in the title, when you find the time, there's usually plenty of tea for everyone.
