Proud as I am of the performance of the gate like Mercian (and what a pleasant surprise the blind poll is), this isn't the first time that I have managed to podium although it was so long ago that I can understand that no one remebers.

I take you back to December 2007 when, with mere hours to go, my Christmas Tree Yo was leading the pack in BoTM. As often the case, I'd gone too early and was overhauled in a late flurry of votes. The scars are almost healed although at the same time the quantity and quality of entrants has risen substantially. Still, this is a good excuse to repost the Yo.

Now, any thoughts on running with GoTM (Gate of the Month)?

I still have nightmares about a podium placing in a BotM competition... fortunately and with good reason no doubt, reality hasn't superseded...!
