    That's a great suggestion and much closer than anything I came up with. Does Serendipity of The Week work?

    And suggested by Trainman. Posh? You're having a laugh, ain't ya?

    Like that!

    You may need Moderator privileges, but you should be able to edit your own thread anyway.

    I clicked on Administrative at the top right and then on Edit thread button.

    Thank you ROB. Perhaps we ought to go with Serendipitious Moment of The Week as Trainman put the suggestion forward and it sounds even more intellectual.

    Do you want to try it first?

    As I said you should be able to edit your own thread.
