Errr....what mice? - the local cats seem to be doing a great job keeping them away....

Mind you, if you've got a good way of getting rid of moles, I'd appreciate it...our back garden looks like the Somme (except without the gory bits).

S'pose I could just stick the cheese down the hole and hope the smell keeps 'em away.... :wink:

regards and thanks for your entries.

I go away for a few days and find we're over £50! Thank you all!

My normal stockist doesn't sell the cheese any more :(

Found a new stockist though! :D

So....

As a special incentive, if we can reach £200 the prize fund will increase to 3 - yes 3 - cheeses (and Hobnobs?)

Hi all,

I just had a thought....the 2007 "vintage" of Beaujolais Nouveau will be released at midnight on 15th November 2007....and CIN night is the following night....

So, what better than to consider having a Cheese and Wine Party in your house (or our chat room) on the evening of the 16th....?

So, you can spend some time and money making a donation to CIN and guessing on the Sweepstake, whilst indulging in some of this years plonk....assuming Tesco / Sainsbury / Waitrose / Morrisons et al pull their finger out and have it available....

Of course, the "Beauj" has some way to come....from somewhere near Macon in France...so it's unlikely it'll be available everywhere in UK :oops:

So, the alternative is a nice bottle of Chateau Neuf de Pape or something similar...!

All in favour, say "Aye"...!

regards

Tim

PS Please supply your own cheese and wine !!

Just a little note.

It looks like we're on for another record monthly credit. We hit 6 million today which is TWO days ahead of when we hit 6 million last month! As there is an extra day this month compared to last month we should get around 7.8 Million!

If we carry on at this rate the 8 million month isn't far away, which means that members who have donated to the CIN page may need to update their guesses. Those that haven't are playing a cagey game and waiting in order to win the cheese! (Aren't you?)

Yes, all right, it's a shameless plug to 'bump' this thread.

And this is ANOTHER plug.

We're at £62....and it would at least be nice to hit the £100 mark.

There's just 9 DAYS to go to Children In Need night....so dig deep people and let's make this contribution a little more worthwhile......PLEASE ??
