Our best wishes to all our friends. May your holiday be relaxing, and here’s hoping 2023 will be a great one.

First off, a quick apology for the lack of activity over the last few days. My beautiful little monster, and part-time site mascot, Burka the Cat, was taken ill over the weekend. Unfortunately, she deteriorated rapidly and was diagnosed with untreatable cancer. My little girl was given peace this morning. Only 8 years old. Absolutely devastated, as she spent every waking moment an arm’s length away. I’m not a big people person, but animals are everything… Obviously, coins are the last thing on my mind.

I’d hoped to have a couple more days of posts, but we’re taking a break until after the holiday. I need it anyway. I also hoped we’d all have a great 2022 just a year ago. We haven’t of course, but I will still wish all of you the best for 2023 anyway. Things have to get better soon, right?

As always, massive thanks to our advertisers for keeping us alive, and to those that have donated over the year. It’s all so incredibly appreciated, I don’t have words. I really hope what we’ve done has been of interest, and in some way, a pleasure for you all. It’s good to think you may have found something that might otherwise have passed you by.

We wish you all the best for the holiday period, wherever you are, and however you celebrate. Treasure your loved ones, be they two-legged or not, and try to have some fun. I don’t doubt you deserve some. All the best.
