Hiya Gordi!

There's a programme on BBC 4 at the moment called Boffins Telling Jokes. I don't get a lot of them but I think you would love it!

1 British Pound Sterling equals 1.69 US Dollar today.

So no...it really doesn't sound better, though I wish it did. There are financial constraints everywhere. The Canadian Dollar is worth more as well. It really does limit my opportunity to travel.

Thanks Jane! Now I'm in a funk...

I'm sorry Dawg, I didn't mean to put you in a funk

But that's exactly what Gordi has said...my £1,000 equates to $1,700 in just 4 months for stuff just lying around which really doesn't make me smile anymore, surplus to my requirements, or just plain not needed. One mans rubbish is another mans treasure.
I'm sorry, I was just trying to help

No biggie. We have people who cruise around in pick up trucks earning a living through picking up others scrap metal. You do what ya have to do. Those guys actually make a decent living if they play their cards right.

It has gotten so bad here though, that the State is starting to think about issuing licenses to them, because it generates revenue.

You what?

Licences for scrap metal haulers? Are you serious? And people think we have it bad in Britain! Hell, I am a security professional, and I do not need a licence! What the hell is happening to your state?

Oh sweet God almighty! Steptoe and Son.... There's a fellow who runs a local used car dealership called Steptoe. I think being associate with the name, has lead to his current marketing strategy

Hehe in today's economic climate, combined with the used car salesman man's reputation and the Brit sense of humour...he's on a winner!

Hey Night. I live on a fixed income as well, but do what I can for others like you. It's better than doing nothing.

Medical and auto repair bills can be a crusher at times. That's why I always tell the youngins' to Save, save, and then save some more. But they never listen. It befuddles me why some people can't learn from others mistakes.

I'm praying that everything turns out right for you and yours.


HUGS Dawg!!!

Night Jane!

I have been up pretty late over the last few days, so I am afraid that I will also be off to join the ranks of the sleeping.

Been a pleasure as always everyone! Good night, and may God bless each and every one of you!

They're not scrap metal haulers...they're dumpster divers so to speak. They just cruise the neighborhoods looking for metal or decent wood to resell.

I have nothing against them, if they can make a living off of others trash...more power to them I say.
