    I don't have your resources Jim. :ROFLMAO:

    Thing is, if they put up interest rates, which is possible the £ might rise against the €. :RollEyes:

    Wish I was money wise.

    That ending winds me up every time. All they had to do was one gets out and starts loading rocks.

    And of course the mini loading. Stop the coach, load in 30 seconds, go.

    It was crap wasn't it, but I can never resist watching it.

    A classic Brian

    While the sequel is very good, the original could have gone to a second film.. Like you the ending was a shame... But many words have been transposed in to every day use...

    You were supposed to blow the bloody doors off....

    Yes great.

    I do not think the B of E will increase interest rates at this time.. I buy euros anywhere around 1.18 .. Take the rise and fall works out ok over a year, I buy some most months.

    Ask Frankie to keep an eye on the rate for over there, we usually change sterling at a local postoffice as we need it when in france and seem to get a good exchange rate.

    Ken, I should of utilised my financial brain, Look what I said this time last year. (hunt the post)

    we are going next week for 2 weeks on the piste, current rate £1.18 so what's coming up, sadly for many, but not for some, a rise in interest rates is not likely as things are too fragile, (not my view but that of the BOE)

    however what the others are liking is the UK austerity measures against the Euro, so I think a peek around £1.22 - £1-25, at least until the release of the next unemployment figures or the retail figures.

    BTW ( I really do mean what the others are liking and not me, my unemployed wife or anyone else in my house :RollEyes:)

    Ken we use nationwide and santander cards abroad, they still (at the moment) offer you the rate of the day of transaction. and no charges on the Santander one for sure although its a special account. Not sure of the logistics, Nikki is the accountant not me.

    Was in Santander last week asking about the free withdrawal account.
    They told me I would have to keep £10000 in permanently or have a mortgage with them to get it:Doh:
    What was interesting was if I took one of there credit cards I could draw the cash out abroad for free.I suppose that would work if I set it up to pay the full balance at month end.
