Thanks guys. Yes, it's nice to know that this forum and its members are trying to make a difference in this world. It would be great if members could also help to promote the ebook (in whichever innovative way they can) and also suggest how we might increase its exposure and sales.....it would be great to see 4k of donations turn into 8k of donations in no time soon! 8-)

4k is a lot of money grateful shout every one. I do have reservations about shouting to load, if everyone started cooking BIR at home, what would become of the local take away local restaurants? Just a thought.

I don't think it would stop people buying a takeaway or going out to a restaurant. I often do both, as well as cook my own. It's always good to compare. I find it keeps me "on my toes" so to speak. I love cooking a curry and having friends round to enjoy it, but I also love going out and being waited on..........my opinion :cool:
