You're in luck - at least you are if I can get this to work.  I normally use photobucket but it doesn't seem to be co-operating at the moment.

The following link should take you to a flickr page:  https://www.flickr.com/gp/188367197@N07/Buz695

 

Let me know if this doesn't work and I'll try something else,

Cheers,

Thanks, Steve. That has worked nicely. I don't get too many in the paper editions, so it's always nice to see. Are you ok with me taking a screen shot of that?
