Ok... Heres a joke to wake everyone up.. Big Grin

A couple decided whoever died first would come back and inform the other of the afterlife. After a long life, the husband was the first to go, and true to his word he made contact. "Mary!” called the ghostly voice. "Is that you, Fred?" "Yes, I've come back like we agreed." "What's it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning, have sex, have breakfast, then off to the golf course, have sex, bathe in the sun, and have sex twice. Then lunch, another romp around the golf course, and sex all afternoon. After supper, golf course again, then sex till late at night. The next day it all starts over again."
"Oh, Fred you surely must be in heaven."
"Not exactly Mary, I'm a rabbit in Suffolk."

Yes found loads but was too scared to venture in. Every inch of land in the area has signs saying 'Do not trespass' and 'Beware of my dawg" (I gather a Dawg is similar to the English 'Dog' but more vicious). IP: 217.34.233.121

I can remember the last time I was scared Oh My God
It involved a couple of mines, a few drops and a couple of bridges ( or lack off).
But you are right, it is good to be scared sometimes.....
Might just stick to the ghost train though Smile

That's a lot of coal mines Barney!

If you wanted to upload a lot (not that I'm suggesting anybody would ever want to upload 3000+ mines) I can easily write a batch import script from a spreadsheet.
