No Internet Access til the end of the year, sigh.



One of the reasons I couldn't help host Menu for Hope this year was because the place where I am heading today [see picture above] has no internet access. But that's ok...

I've already made my bids on the raffle.

I've gifted a load of tickets to family and friends as Christmas presents and asked them to forward details of the Menu for Hope to their own foodie friends and work news groups.

I have posted the Menu for Hope details on my own company newsgroup and Fred has posted it on his newsgroup too.

I've tried everything I can to get my readers to purchase more tickets for my own prize UW32 of an English Tea package. (Including bribery. Everyone's a winner with Becks & Posh.)

With the help of The Fatted Calf I have added another prize to the roster. UW36

Pim has kindly agreed to let me use the Menu for Hope money raising widget in this post, so you can keep track of how we are doing, whilst I am off line. The amount shown, is the total number of money we raise to help feed the children of Lesotho. If this number hasn't flown way past $60k by the time I get back, I am going to be disappointed. But my readers have never disappointed me yet. You aren't going to start disappointing me now, are you? Of course not.

Happy Holidays everyone. Thank you for sharing 2007 with me, here at Becks & Posh.




PS - You only have two more days to place your bids - the raffle closes on December 21st, so hurry!
