    hahaha, Oh dear. Yes you can confer with the family so long as the other family members do not google. No extra points for comedy answers but if you make me smile it's all worth the effort.

    Himself has just very very seriously said "You know, I think I would ahve done better if she'd asked questions I knew the answers to." (He was making a funny)
