Sounds like you are in a similar mood to me Nigel.
But I think it will not have passed by you that pretty soon by the looks of
things the only way of getting finds into the record will be via PAS. The

and with continued rumours regarding the demise of EH maybe we need to start
looking at the reality of the situation, not your ideal, which the UK seems
to be moving further away from.
