Why - because "it's raining again"  boom boom  *smiley4*

 Yeah Kev- Richard Thompson, but the first time I heard that was about twenty years ago, done by a local Guy Jeff Lang when he supported Bob Geldorf.....was confused  *conf* hadn't heard of a 'Black Lighning' at  the time
 

 This is what comes to mind whenever I mention the Dynamo (hum....)
