I was so excited to be in the mag, then....

Hi folks

My subscription copy of PCA arrived today, so imagine my surprise and delight to see one of my suggestions for Xmas shopping sites got a mention !

My 5 mins of fame I thought - but no - quelle horreur - the example given was for a handbag ! For the avoidance of doubt, I am a cool dude, albeit a hairy a***d grumpy old man, and not ordinarily given to recommending handbags.

Still, it gave the wife and daughter a good laugh (it's one of their Favourites, honest) as usual, at my expense.

Anyway, thanks for my "5 Minutes" and seasons greetings to all at PCA & the forums.

£875 for a bag. I could buy a pretty good computer for that!

the idog on firebox priced at £30 is cheaper at tesco, £26 I think it was.

I had the same thing with my suggestions - 3 were used (albiet for the same company). I'm not sure which resulted in the funniest look from my wife - surpriseyourman . com or surpriseyourmother . com - she cheered up when i showed her i'd also submitted surpriseyourwoman . com....

Suppose i'd better buy something from them now....
