"Thanks Pick", Swampiness was the furthest thing from my mind when doing this build, I was just trying to combine my latest obsession of heavy burning, and staining, Green on this one to suit the plate, BUT!, was more than happy with all the unexpected Swampy comments, obviously our learned and respected CBN friends saw something that I originally didn't!.  :- D

"Thanks Andries", Yep!, everyone is of the opinion, it jumped out of the Swamp, and I think they could all be right! :-D

Thanks 'UJ' & 'Bones', never thought about it that way, but your right!, it does have that "Primordial Ooze from the Swamp" look about it.  :-D
