Seventy Seven years ago

Seventy-seven years ago I Vest joined the British Royal  Navy. After twenty-four and a half years I retired on an indexed pension for the past Fifty two and a half years.. There were times when my investment was in doubt due to times of conflict. but if  I  were born again, I would never take the gamble but take a safe option. Other than that, Nothing is often a good thing to say, and always a clever thing to say. The saving of man is the holding of his tongue. and a little bit of luck.

Andrew. oddly I have never been short of a Quid since I was a Nine-year-old when I acquired my first POSB, On leaving the RN my weekly pension was twice that of my weekly mortgage payment. plus a cheap babysitter when my wife had an office job at the supermarket five minutes walk away. I changed my workplace four times prior to coming to AUS on each occasion earning More. At the moment I am sitting on three retirement incomes and plus bank interest on deposits.

Susan Flett Swiderski. It is usually the bullying types who have the most to say but with less wisdom.
