    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know the best way to deliver an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

    Ohhh... I burn really easy. And I don't drink wine regularly. However, I've drunk more wine (with dinner) this summer than most, and I've not burnt quite so much. Something to test, I guess.
