Sandra and dbree, A very quick thank you for all the information you have found so quickly. I didn't expect anything to come of my query.
I have a big thunderstorm overhead so laptop is going off now !

Hi
Thank you again for all the details sent through. My friend will be delighted with all this, and
thanks for the storm enquiry.
We get a lot at this time of year and they bring much needed rain. Thankfully the power stayed on during this one but I never take a chance, it has become a habit to pull out plugs when lightening starts.
