When it comes to flogging a dead horse, nobody does it like the Gardners...

Flogging a Dead Horse
We're also good at kicking ass, and talking the hind leg off a donkey.

So with all of that in mind, I'd just like to urge everyone who's reading this before midnight on Thursday to click on this link and vote for my buddy Peter Chapman to win the final of Pod Idol.

Paddy Power Pod Idol
Think of it as Pop Idol, but with Chappers playing the part of Rik Waller. Only thinner, and more inclined to give away his chocolate to Amelie.

He's been chosen as one of only eight finalists, and if he wins, he gets to appear every week on the Paddy Power podcast. And it's only a small step from that to hosting his own show on Radio 5 Live, and presenting Match of the Day. At which point he can get me a job writing after-dinner speeches for Alan Hansen. So it's important you vote. It only takes two seconds, and you don't even have to give your name. Frankly it makes the Zimbabwe Presidential Election look above-board and transparent. But vote anyway. Or I'll burn down your farm.

It's not fair.  It will only let us vote once.  There are 2 of us living here, you know.  Sometimes we like to register our feelings separately!

With hindsight, I probably should have written this post a week ago.

Thank you to anyone that voted in the final few hours.

The result was announced today (Friday) and I finished in the most gutting position possible - Second :'(   I did however 'win' a £20 free bet. Any suggestions?
