      Oh, I want to go there! A friend has just returned from Denmark and has said it is an extremely beautiful country ... what were those Vikings thinking?

      I guess I'll just have to save up ... which won't be quick if I keep buying all this Carlsberg (definitely the best lager in the world), Ron :)
