Hum...just call me stupid...but I've clicked several times on what I supposed to be the right place for the vid...and nothing happens help Adam!!!

Hi Lorraine,
No, you're not stupid! The video stopped working; for some reason the embedding settings had changed. I've changed them back now and it should be working.
Thanks for pointing this out - I might not have seen it if you hadn't pointed it out.
Best wishes,
