    Thanks, Elizabeth. Some thanks must also go to member Expat who's idea it was to start such a thread in the first place.

    As is the nature of the Internet, no doubt some of the links are now defunct, so, if anyone spots one that's not working, perhaps you could post up about it and I'll see if I can rectify it. Sometimes the sites are taken off and other times it's just the link that's been changed in which case, with a bit of luck, I can try to find the new link to it.
