    Ernie Prize Checker Day today,

    £100 quid for me (will fill the car up with diesel, just!!)
    £75 for Mrs. Slow.

    Last draw of 2018 and total winnings for the year have paid far more than if we had put the money in a fixed term account at the bank. Obviously I realise we could have won nowt but been a good year, no big prizes but lots of small amounts which add up.

    We lived in Sparkbrook for six months or so from September 1980. I think it was Stoney Lane. We were married in English Martyrs R C.

    Got out to Harborne shortly afterwards.

    I remember the English Tomatyrs school in Sparkbrook. :whistle:
    I went to Dennis Road Junior & Infants school from 1958 to 1962, just off Stoney Lane. We moved to Hall Green when I was 7. The rest of my school life was split between Hall Green Juniors and Moseley Grammar. I left Brum in 1977......never to return.:smile:

    Barnet,
    £25 for me this month. Was hoping for a couple of extra noughts, but it is a few pints care of ERNIE:cheers:
    This year I have had a couple of hundred out of the system so no complaints from me. Better return than most
    bank/building society accounts.
