Thanks everybody... I have to say that I am in full agreement with a 
post a few days back that said that understanding the type system not 
only in how the signatures are written but how they interact with 
eachother is absolutely key to getting your head around Haskell.

My daily blub language is currently  PHP and the company I am at seem 
about to cave in and let me use Erlang too which would be really nice 
BUT Haskell is the place I want to go... having been a software 
developer for twenty five years, I have personally made most of the 
mistakes Haskell helps to avoid! LMAO

Thanks everybody.
