    Happy Holidays, I hope you enjoy your well deserved rest Martin.

    There's no need to check up on us..........'while the cat's away the mice will play' is utter nonsense.

    Whether you're sunning yourself somewhere hot and exotic or hitting the slopes of Colorado, have a great Xmas, New Year and above all, holiday.

    And you didn't listen to Auntie Ticklemouse did you? You HAVE to put the lappy and mobile down, and, more importantly TURN THEM OFF! We will be here when you get back so take a proper break and come back refreshed and ready to get 'em.

    (Now, if you'd have put me in the corner of your case, I could have kept an eye on you I am of course thinking only of the welfare of the site and it's members, you realise )

    Off spending your millions and topping up your (fake) tan for the next series of "Make Me Rich"? Will you be working out, too?

    Seriouly, enjoy the break (and ration your use of the laptop!) I'm sure we won't get into too much trouble while you're away...

    I've known of the existence of this site for a while. First heard Martin on Radio 5 a few years back and missed the site address. Found the address finally this year. It was worth the wait. A big thumbs up for a site I believe can help make a difference.

    To help sort out my sisters financial thinking, I've duly got her the money diet for Christmas. Hope she becomes a winner financially speaking as a result.
