Thank you Sue and Vicky for your replies and for helping me post this topic.
I have to admit that Sue helped me to post. I am having trouble with one of my eyes and things look a bit blurry.
I have been fond of Dumas' stories and many of the films that they mad about his weritings.
I hope you have a chance to read some of his books Vicky, especially the novels, they are quite a lot of fun to read.
Until the day when God shall deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is summed up in these two words,--'Wait and hope'.
