Nice One Hamish!

Hard to top in terms of rarity value - the only thing that comes to mind would be a bottle of Bochan Breath but to get one of THEM to do anything for charity would be about as easy as reciting Flory Loynachan backwards. However I could be wrong. Bochan Mor? (Never there when you need them)

Glad you like the idea... Made a bit over the years on eBay so nice to get a charity involved... Left a reply to your emails... So the Forum will get a little mention ;) Any more Q's can be answered on the auction...

Thanks for your support

PS Would be nice to see Cancer Research getting a 3 figure sum ;)

Mist

This is an excellent idea - just shows you can sell anything on e-bay!

Perhaps we should all get together and put in a bid!?

Aye - very good indeed -

if anybody's ever read those items about daft things tourists ask
eg: in Edinburgh "...what time does one o'clock gun go off..." etc.
apparently our own Shirley has been asked "...when does the mist roll in from the sea..."

- sorely tempted to get the smoke machines over to the trench point! :lol:

Well isn't that curious? The current high bidder has actually changed his Ebay ID from nicebutdim21 (highest bidder when Courier went to press) to unlockmyphonebypost :? :)

Handy bit of advertising that, eh :!:
