Whatever I said - I'm sorry now. To continue your theme though - they've been exporting Royalty since 1840:
"Albert, wilt thou have this woman to be thy wedded wife?" and "Victoria, wilt thou have Albert to be thy wedded husband?" and "Who giveth this woman to be married to this man?"
To this last question the Duke of Sussex replied by taking the queen's hand and saying, "I do." Perhaps some in the assembly may have smiled when the Queen of England promised to obey this younger son of a German Duke, and when he said, "With all my worldly goods I thee endow." The queen tells us, however, that she pronounced the word obey with a deliberate intent to keep her vow, and that she kept it.

I was going to make a point round about here - but I've forgotten it.....

Got one of these today, they are great much faster than the zodiac foot pump, which made pumping up the air floor on my futura next to impossible. The pump may well be from Eindhoven? but the airs from England

I find foot pumps pretty useless - these are much better - I keep one in the console of my RIB!!!
