Let me know if you have any questions.

Enjoy!

It's not that I would trade my lot
For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

Thanks for all the good responses.

I do have a question as the number of bids I have received is not reflected in the poll, which makes me curious as to why that is?

Again thanks to all who bid.

Maybe a lot of people reading the Topic declined to answer the poll ?

Also, people putting in a bid not all answering the poll ? Don't know why people choose to answer or not but in some cases one would have to post a more complete answer than one of the answers one can pick in the poll.

Don't know if the actual poll gives you statistically valid information you can use in your marketing and just take the results with a grain of salt. Question On the other hand if you are generally getting a good response to these auctions i.e. actual bids are a better indicator of how well this marketing tool works for you.

Actual sales at a decent profit for you is the bottom line though ! ( Well I do hope it's successful for you and I like the idea and if and when I see something I like, and it coincides with my budget permitting it, I would certainly consider putting in a bid at that time ).

( Don't know if the above helps to answer your question but off the top of my head it's my take on it. Big Grin Cool ).

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Thanks Jean,

As you say the poll if more for added interest for myself and the other members, It does help to give me some ideas about why the bidding goes the way it does.

If you or anyone else has ideas for questions I'd love to hear them.

By the way this auction ends tomorrow so if you haven't bid yet you are running out of time.
