Quote of the week No. 5 : On the current financial crisis

Twenty-two degrees! I'm cheating - that's the temperature in the sun. But at least there's sun and no rain, and I'm off with my cup of tea to the churchyard for a panoramic view of the lake and the Alps.

Let me leave you with this thought from Charles Dickens (1812-1870), English novelist.
Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pound ought and six, result misery. -- David Copperfield, 1850

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...

Italy is our favorite destination. We've often talked about doing what you did. Maybe someday.

Hi Louise,
The Dickins Quote is absolutely correct and is something we have lived by. If you haven't got the dosh don't borrow it unless you can pay it back easily. Clinton has a lot to answer for.
