Cheers Robin duly noted but you have different peppers over
there to us lol, Jimmy is doing ok I am introducing him to
more fresh veg now but I have to remove all the other food and
he has to be hungry before he will tackle it, this I find hard
as I think I'm being cruel but I know it is for the best.
Once again Thanks,
