    Hi,

    You may remember completing a Sticky Notes survey for us recently.

    Thank you for lending your time, valuable insight, and for getting back to us before the deadline. Your help and support was much appreciated.

    I am delighted to let you know that you have been randomly chosen as one of our 5 lucky winners congratulations!

    I would like to send you a cheque to the value of £10. I would be grateful if you could respond with:

    1. The name to which the cheque should be made out.

    2. Your full address (which will only be used for the purposes of sending the cheque to you).

    If you do not respond by COP this week, an alternative winner will be selected in your place.

    All that remains for me to do is again bid you many thanks and congratulations.

    do you remember filling out the survey? if not, then ignore it.

    BEWARE: They are a marketing company.
    Once they have your home address I suspect you will hear more form them.

    Note they don't use your name in the email, but they only had 5 winners? Dodgy.
    You could give their office a call but this maybe exactly what they are after?

    For a tenner???

    Wouldn't touch with a barge-pole

    Meaning
    Said of something or someone so unappealing that one wouldn't want to approach near.
    Origin
    http://www.phrases.org.uk/images/punting.jpgBarge-poles are the long wooden poles that are used to push barges along. The term was first recorded in Edward Farmer's Scrap book, being a selection of poems, songs, scraps, etc., 1846:
    [INDENT]Barge-pole - A large stick or thick bough. Also generally used for any large piece of wood.
    [/INDENT]Barges are now less common in the UK, where the word was coined, and those that remain are usually powered by engines. Recreational punting still utilises poles similar to barge-poles.
    The earliest reference I can find to the figurative use of 'wouldn't touch with a barge-pole' is Lady Monkswell's Diary, 1893:
    [INDENT]It will be a long while before any political party touches Home Rule again with the end of a barge pole.
    [/INDENT]The expression appears to derive from the earlier American phrase 'I wouldn't touch that with a ten-foot pole'. This is recorded in the magazine of the U.S. Masonic community - The Official Magazine of the Grand Lodge of the United States, 1843, edited by James L Ridgely:
    [INDENT]But that mushroom aristocracy of our country... who would not condescend to touch a poor man with a ten foot pole, were their extraction traced, in nine cases out of ten they were nurtured in the squalid huts of poverty.
    [/INDENT]Ten-foot poles were, in all likelihood, barge-poles by another name.
