    Look at the Similar Threads below. These appeared because you gave your thread a great title. Well done!

    Ask supplementary questions one at a time in separate threads — again with useful titles, such as Hospital used to be open and Have a chance/have had a chance.

    Hi Moose1,

    You can find a list here (it may not be exhaustive, but it will certainly give you an idea).
