I think I figured out what a didey is . . . and if any of you gents are in need of references to length, width, girth, or mass (so as to stop the rampant speculation). . they are available from my wife.
Um, not that curious, Zubs... all I need to know is that you've a big heart and that it's in the right place... as is ID's. You're both great guys and I appreciate the help/assistance you've given to both mrs starkers and I.
