I do indeed, Extwag . In fact, I saw one of the 'half timbered' variety around here a couple of weeks ago. Nearly as rare as myself.
Did you ever visit the Nuffield Wolds when you were in the UK? That's where the Morris mines are.

Lord Nuffield was the owner of the Morris Motor Company which he founded. He also endowed Nuffield College, Oxford. A self-made man, he built his fortune having designed and manufactured the 'Bull-nosed Morris' (my grandfather had one).
I was responding to your 'beetle' pun with my 'Morris mines'.

You know what you can do with your puns.

It was part of a pun on Morris minor - miner, working in a Morris mine, mining Morris minors.
Oh, never mind. You're a hopeless case!

You're a sad case! I was thinking more along the lines of Anarchy in the UK by the Sex Pistols . "I am an antichrist". Look it up yourself.
