And that, as they say, is that.

Well done, Paul.

My friend Fiona is rather crushed, so I've postponed collecting my
dinner (our original bet) for a week. I reminded her that a lot of
new discoveries came out of her hunch. We did find that Piers had a
sister. And who's to say that the sister wasn't named Amie, too? We
just know she wasn't our Amie.

At any rate, it's nice to have it all settled.

Many thanks to everyone who helped me with this, and congrats again to

Cheers, ------Brad
