Don't forget your mates, Bingalau, when these magnificent riches torrent into your bank account. I quite fancy a little house in Notting Hill.

I wouldn`t say no to an Aston Martin if you have any change left after seeing to the previous requests.

(Just corrected the spelling mistakes then copied and pasted lads and lasses). I'm now looking forward to taking you all on the razz. I've contacted the Chelsea manager (Can't spell his name) to borrow his yacht, as my new one will take a wee time to build to my specifications. I think we will do the Med. first. Hands up all those that want to come? Oh 'ecky thump! I've just noticed oarsome's contribution. Back down to earth with a bump \/ ouch. That's oarsome's fault for sticking his oar in!!

Bingalau-- Thought it was a yacht not a rowing boat - whats an oar got to do with it

  Monoux 20:55 14 Mar 2007

Bingalau-- I expect seeing todays news about the Chelsea owner- I can't spell his name either- that it will only be half the yacht he used to have as he is getting divorced so his other half will have the other half so to speak :o)
