Just noticed this, Alex, and do you mind if I respectfully decline? I don't really understand memes, but they look to me a bit like chain letters. I don't mind being tagged if you need to come up with a certain number of names, but I'd rather not play.

Many apologies. No problem - I'll try to remember not to name you again (if I'm meme'd again)!
