    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!

    Does A have Muller Bliss Corner Whipped Greek Style Original (4x110g)? It doesn't appear to be on a.com so, if it exists in A, it's highly likely to be an invisible trigger - other Muller Blisses are on 2 for 3 and may be 2.30 vs 1 M (not Northern Ireland).

    And for those that are new to the site that dont have a clue what is going on. The 'owner' of the winning horse chooses a charity, then I set up a just giving (or virgin giving etc) link to their chosen charity, and people just pay their 2's direct to that. Done it for about 4-5 years now. Think last year was rained off but not sure.
    Lurkers/occasional posters are also more than welcome to take part.

    Hi everybody. I was wondering if I could ask a MASSIVE favour. I have become unemployed and hope this is only for temporary reasons. As I have time on my hands I am walking during the day to keep busy. I am trying to make my Jobseeker's Allowance go far and so have time to visit all the supermarkets really. Apart from J Sainsbury, they are all within 45 minutes walk. I have put Greenjinn, Checkoutsmart and Shopmium on my phone. Using these I am saving money but also mainly shopping at Tesco and using their brand match on goods cheaper elsewhere. I know the Asda one is 10% cheaper but it seems too complicated. Can you give me any more tips to get my 73 benefit stretching further?

    Thankyou, gracias, merci, danke, grazie......

    Until anyone questions what's apparently been done for many years without any issue, thank you for starting this off again.

    Thank you for doing this. It's a great idea. I've been out tonight so going to bed now. Night all. (I've put myself in and also Spud01 as requested above.)

    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!
