It’s the gut that spoils it for me!  I try not to be influenced by the month end weather but it doesn’t work. I don’t think the heart or the head would fare much better in my case though!  


Shame we didn’t quite make 50 but still a good number and we may entice more in next month. Let’s hope we don’t get too many falling by the wayside!

I think the MO thread attracts quite a few ‘seasonal’ posters who only appear with the cold or the heat.  No staying power eh?

Hi Global

I wanted to put a guess in for the annual CET but was expecting a different thread for that. Is it too late to submit my entry?

There is a separate thread for the other competition but I don't open up a new one each year. I just rename the existing thread as it only has a few pages to it. It is stickied and I will post the list of predictions there later this evening. No problem to have additional entries in that competition given we are only 4 days into the 365 day year. So no real advantage for making a prediction a couple of days late.

Thanks to everyone who is taking part in the competition. We didn't quite make the 50 mark. There were a number of people who sent separate messages at different times for the January and annual competitions which I hadn't spotted. So the total number of January predictions is 49 but that is still a nice increase on the 36 we had in December.


I will try and post up the annual CET predictions in the other thread tomorrow evening.


Here is the table for January. A nice spread of predictions. Surely somebody will be very close.

Hopefully, we can get a good number of entries for that as well.
