Any information about next month's BOTM? I'd like to read it before everyone starts to comment. Expect it has been given somewhere but I can't find it. Thanks.

Thanks ladies. Don't ever be afraid to *poke* us, life gets in the way and memories aren't always what they used to be :o

Aiyee, I'm on a large jury pool that's going to get larger on Monday. No idea when life will get back to normal :mad: :)
