Returning from Europe and China recently I converted my unused British and Unclesamland currency to Aus Dollars. I had been awed by the attractiveness and quality of the Brit Quids, although the longevity quality of the misc plastic Digger Dollar notes were in a class of their own. the unattractive dowdy looking Yankee Fifty dollar bills I returned gave the appearance of monopoly money, it gave me that feeling of insecurity while in my possession despite the "In God we Trust" logo on their partially torn and worn edges..
But not all is doom and gloom for those like myself who source a large proportion of their retirement income from Mother England, in the past sixty days have enjoyed a twenty per cent increase in their dosh - less the inevitable taxes and the like. seems for some time now I am spending less than my income, which could relate to less outgoings in the jollity sector although the big Pharma and Doc outgoings are having an increasing influence on downward monetary movements.
Think it more satisfactory to live richly than die rich.
Vest, back soon.
