    I have to admit it is above my head, I have read and re-read. I think the Elite are getting more shopping from Waities at the moment.. so we maybe posh

    I think a few Elite may have done £10,000 on the V3 with rinse and repeat.... I was an amateur... but I did get a lovely diamond ring!

I was slightly worried I was going to end up sitting on some for a while, but it ended well in the end .

    Well that is a polite way of saying something that others say with a few swear words!

    The way that they were talking about the cards, it was like they were talking about v3 again... If it is something similar it is worth having a play x
