    oo bobs got a cunning plan!! Not sure about the turnip though..bit round! Would parnip not be a better "fit?"!
    Have you thought about books on green metropolis? I did try amazon initially bu soon gave up after pepys were selling for 1p! AT least with GM yo get a guaranteed, fair return...just s thought. Ebay isnt great this time of year (more a winter thing me thinks) so would def go for car boot but if local one is anything to go by you eed to haggle - mind you thats the fun for me! Touched that I made it to your list of special people....suspect I may inspire more due to regular !!!! ups on my cunning plan but I'll push on & get there in the end! More than happy to swap debt amount if that wil help...I mean whats a measly 22,000 difference between friends!! Chuffed that you have your own diary as hard to support when people dont IYKWIM! Hugs for you!

    Thanks for that:D I will look into Green metropolis. I have a few misgivings about the 1p listings myself.

    I have sold my first book though:T ..very surprised and made about £6 off the sale.

    I am keeping a fair eye on the weather, in order to try out the the car booting, really looking forward to it.

    Hey you can swap debt amount with Mr. B, i haven't totalled all of his up yet. I did last year, when he had my savings :mad: and have dropped a variety of casual comments his way, but he seems to be getting it together and he is welcome to any surplus ...if he can find it:rotfl: :rotfl: Must remember to lock up the off shore accounts.:rolleyes:

    Health and safety. Turnip is not a choking hazard...

    Dare I ask young z, What would be? Nope better not.
    On a serious note previous advice was very welcome, and has been acted upon. Cheers:beer:

    I heard you can have a few pots, and name them..I thought it would help me organise a bit better. I will hot foot it over to cahoot though if that is any better. Cheers for that:beer:

    Turnips, can multiply at exponential rates!! I was thinking of naming my account ..turnips:o

    The parsnip of course. A lady that could even get close to choking on a turnip would be very popular with the gentlemen...

    Which advice was that? Was it: "In matters of complaint, a machine pistol beats a snotty letter..."?
    "Follow the money!" - Deepthroat (AKA William Mark Felt Sr - Associate Director of the FBI)

    I knew i shouldn't have asked:rolleyes:

    I like your letters ( don't take that one the wrong way!)

    It was the advice on the school, i just stuck to my guns and went and sourced my own work, so i could be a bit more picky..Thankyou
