    I suppose it would be too much to hope that Matt Chapman might be persuaded to start an indefinite sponsored silence….for the sake of long-suffering At The Races viewers.

    You are your own man

    Nathan

    , well done and I for one do NOT have any desire to shut you up, I think you are the funniest guy on the boards.

    However I am pleased to say Daphne and myself extended our purchases from the IJF beyond the normal Christmas cards this year and included tea towels, calenders and diaries for presents and fail to think what some of the "rellie’s" say when they open them.

    I do think the IJF could make their cards a little more festive but the thought is there.

    A Hope you have a splendid Christmas

    Nathan

    along with Mrs H and don’t drink too much of the scrumpy.

    Sorry Nathan.
    It’s up to every individual who they choose to give to and by how much. I’ve given the IJF money in the past. No offence mate, but whether I do so again won’t be swayed by anyone else and for me personally will be done privately anyway.

    However, I will join you with a non-sponsered silence at the appropriate time. :wink:

    Hi Ginge, not trying to sway anyone as such. It was an idea to try and help raise just a few quid for charity which has been unsuccessful, I wont lose any sleep over it.

    When I originally made the thread I thought about posting everyday to keep it at the top but that idea even for me seemed a bit extreme.

    But

    I don’t see the problem in that I’ve bumped it up a few times in between a sufficient amount of time incase people have missed it or new comers haven’t seen it and may wish to donate.

    And before you rip me to shreds.

    ‘I hope you lot are as disciplined with your bets’ was just a joke hence the……….. :twisted:

    plus

    ‘don’t all dig deep at once, I cant campaign you all you know’ wast a joke aswell the…. :wink: ……would of told you that.

    thanks for bumping it up again though……… :mrgreen:
