I fell really honoured to share this lifetime award and will be submitting my long lost rellies to the board - and will of course expect each and everyone of you to find them for me. Thank you Heather for organising such a competition - although I must admit I nearly blew my chances as was going to make a comment about you offering a FREE prize - but I see you have come to your senses and intend to charge for entry next time around. Runs off before prize is withdrawn!!!!


Deb Report 7 Jul 2006 18:51

Oh Heather...I can't believe it, Runner up eh! that's still a winner in my eyes.....just a shame I don't have rellies in Yarmouth! lol I won't cancel Ancestry just yet! Deb


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 18:51

Ah, but we all know who does.


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 18:55

Sorry old Crone but people with E d in their name and people with two brains were excluded. Possibly you may have earned a runner up prize but then you were too busy frantically leafing through ' Fun with Elizabethan Wills for the Beginner'.

Deb Report 7 Jul 2006 19:00

OOHHH!!! I had better run quick with my runner up prize.....Heather couldn't have checked all the entrants names. or does 'DE'b not count.....Deb


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 19:01

Glen, you seem to forget - you chose to go freelance, if you have not organised payment before the sexual harrassment that is nowt to do with me, I was just taking a cut.


Heather Report 7 Jul 2006 19:05

This is your treasurer speaking........ I forgot to mention earlier, that there is an enrollment fee for this competition.............I am using a system called ''price testing'' previously used by GR. I'm sure you will be pleased to here my announcement that the enrollment fee for this competition has been set at the nominal rate of £20 per entry......(as this was a more popular rate than 10p per entry and £1 per entry) All cheques to be make payable to ''Merry M M''..... Thank you Merry


Elaine Report 7 Jul 2006 19:11

I just knew it - those two never do anything for nothing!! You would think that they would enjoy coming on here, setting competitions and helping us with our lookups. No - they are only in it for the money!!!!!

A percentage of the entry fee goes to the legal fund for the 'Tinsel Wearers Against Tyrant Slavery' More money is needed,please pledge your support to the TWATS Glen


Deb Report 7 Jul 2006 19:14

Glen You already get a bonus with the sexual harrassment - can't we deploy the entry fee to some other worthy charity say, sending a deeply loved member on a cruise? Of course the member in question is someone we'd like to have a long, long, long, long, holiday from the boards - any suggestions anyone? Snowdrops


Deb Report 7 Jul 2006 19:17

Oh Snowdrops.........Naughty-Naughty!!! Be back in a mo with my suggestions...LOL Deb

Our Price Testing system has been thoroughly tested by our host company, GR. They tested the Price Testing on it's 6,000,000 members and discovered that GR members LIKED a 33% price hike, but didn't like a 66% price hike. With this is mind I feel sure those who spent time joining in this competition will be most satisfied with this minimal fee of £20 per entry. Happy Genes Error! Merry
