Peter, if you fully completed your profile it wouldn't surprise me if one or more American members volunteered to buy them for you and post them on to you, allowing you to transfer the funds into their PayPal account, which is a great way to purchase things overseas. I keep emphasising to new members that it is in their own interest to fully complete their profile for several obvious reasons. This forum, about the most knowledgeable on the net, is also the friendliest, believe me Peter. By the way, where about in the UK are you from, I'm from Manchester but have lived in Western Australia since 1964, possibly before you were born!
