Hi, Colwyn, and thanks for the further info; in the USA, she's better known as an embarrasment to the country of her origin: one of those who married an Englishman and became more "English" than the natives.

Wasn't she the butt of the Churchill story who, finding him into his cups, said, "Winston, you're drunk!" -- to which he replied, "Yes, madam, and you are ugly. The difference is that tomorrow I shall be sober." ...?

What's "geat" mean when it's at home?
