He''s my hero...Battle of Evesham..Man of honour...good to know he has a cheese though.

    No offensive Urgh, Heraldry on Camenbert is a rare privilege granted to only very few names, not a mockery. They even have their guilds . I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. One other famous one ...

    I was joking Skip...but its a bit of a revelation to realise my hero was indeed French leaning. So basically the French invented British democracy...he was first English parliamant speaker...speaker of the house comes directly from him...The French therefore invented British democracy...whoops...

    I am all out of likes for the day, so I am giving out verbal likes. Thanks, rkline!

    The sentiment is still the same, still feel it is very well worth a contribution for what I get here. However, if Poppy somehow gets me a t-shirt out of this that would be even sweeter. :maillotjaune:

    (Note to Poppy: don't hold your wine over the keyboard....)

    I did email Otto about donations. He said that t-shirts are in the works as well as th eoption for donations. As I tend to wear only the classiest dress shirts, I'm not a t-shirt guy, but I would donate once the system is in place.

    These prepaid cards are nice. Not afraid of throwing the number down. Just bought Mom a Daniel Steele porn-er- romance ebook, which I'd never done if had to use regular credit card....If I give you the number Urqh, you'd have to come to Lethbridge.. Ten buck will buy about 8 liters of gas here. You'd have to hitchhike a ways.

    I bought a 25 dollar prepaid MasterCard for 29 dollars specifically to give at least 10 dollars to WW2F...But I cannot find anyone here to accept my money for a widget...Ottbomba must have way too much money... Watch the pennies, the dollars will take care of themselves...Anyhoo, thanks for the forum Ottothebomb.

    I'm working on a payment system that is easy, safe and most importantly private. Trust me, the money could be used right now, but I'm not going to do this without some soft of system in place first.

    I'll also add I'm continually humbled by the generosity of the good membership out there. Thanks to all.

    Keep us posted. I'll gladly contribute. I have learned quite a bit in my time here. I hope to continue that learning.
