So hows the old Island then guys?

Had to have a laugh last night whilst talking to a couple of Russians, they were talking about if Russia devalued there rouble to help with the economic crisis would England and America follow suit to level the playing field. i told him no hope of that happening

I said he did not need to worry about good old blighty because we have a healthy amount of Russian women here now and we will survive anything  ;D

Well, the Pound is trading against the USD at $1.54 /£1 - down over 30% in two months  - so it looks like we "devalued" anyway .. Gordon Brown has announced Keynsian plans to spend our way out of recession and the strong pound is no more !!!

Thats pretty chronic actually. I was in the bank today, and a woman wanted some dollars, and they offered her $1-48 to the £1.  :o

Looks like we need to stop spending in dollars and start selling in them.

42 Rubles/£1 and €1-23/£1 today I noticed. We have laughed at the Yanks with their Peso dollars, now we have Peso Pounds.  :(
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'? 
Yes, he said that.........

Hey Brit pack

Bit quiet in this room, what are you all up too, or are we still in deep depression?

Or like Manny keeping the little woman happy, 3k on decorating  :o I don't know where is sense of adventure tell her she could have had a nice holiday in the sun for that money ;)

Young un is great, no problems and her English is unbelievable for just over 4 months, we cannot say anything now without her knowing what we are talking about :)  Her spoken English is coming on fine and she can get over to us whatever she wants now, she is stringing together longer and longer sentences all the time,  even her new grandparents can understand everything.

Ira, well she is trying to and winning most of the time, she always has an answer and it usually is the right one  ::) how I can be wrong so often still confuses me  :-X  :laugh:
