Exchange Rates

It's 8.22 to the dollar today. Absolutely amazing.

I am going to have a little whine because, about a hundred days ago, I transferred a whole bunch of money at 6.02. Doing the same today would have saved me many thousands of dollars. It is puzzling to me how there can be that much of a swing, especially since the US economy is supposedly in meltdown.

Of course, future purchases (of which many are planned) will be much cheaper. My bad decision on my last money transfer still rankles, though.

OK, whine is over.

You should have background music on your blog--I suggest "Cabaret's"-"Money makes the world go round,etc."
