    Wow! What a nice guy!

    How do these e-mails work? What part of that doesn't scream "Too good to be true!" I suppose if you send enough you'll get some sap going for it. Of course what makes it worse then is the fact that they're praying on not only the poor but the stupid. Now that is really mean. Or maybe it's just a new version of suvival of the fittest in this internet age.

    Hey the government bails them out with our money, surely we can withdraw it again :D And it's all for a good cause!

    Our (USA) big three automakers should give you the money to speak so succinctly before Congress. And a private jet for the gig!

    Was watching the Comic Relief trek up Kilimanjaro tonight. Wow, that looks a far tougher and rockier climb than Everest ever was! And about 1000ft higher. I think the LHS team will find this a tough one, but if Cheryl Cole can do it...

    There was a piece in the Observer on Sunday which stated that although the climb is technically easy, the altitude and low temperature make it dangerous. Most who try to reach the summit suffer altitude sickness, leading to headaches and breathing problems. Each year nearly 20 climbers and local porters lose their lives in the attempt.

    Right, seeing as it's the quiet time between tours, pretty please everyone dig deep and throw in a bit of money for the LHS cause in Nick's name - cheer on our kid as he gets ready to conquer another bloody big hill :biggrin:

    Have stuck this thread to the top of the 'on tour' heap to make sure all youse lovely people see it and remember to donate early, donate often :wink:

    Seriously, on this trip I've been in a chemo ward twice with someone I love very much, worried about my friend's dad who's not doing well at all (and about my friend too!), and seen first hand (without walking up a very large hill!) just how bloody hard LHS works and the great things they do. I'll bet we've all seen what cancer can do to sufferers and families - as Nick says, let's prevent the holes from occurring. PLEASE, if you can dig deep and give in our kid's name, you won't regret it :biggrin:
