      Hey, Ursa Major, my tomatoes are gone with the summer heat and the cat
      is a she that can't be in heat. Otherwise, the fettle is fine. I have
      just stumbled across a CUP quote from something that I had archived
      some time ago. It was Lowrie so I added the Hong to it and will post
      it as a new thread. I think it is another 'ears to hear' quote.
