Happy Birthday MK
« on: June 26, 2016, 02:40:40 AM »
Have a very happy Birthday :)
Listen to the advice about not getting drunk making a fool of yourself or misbehaving in any sort of way.....then ignore it completely and do whatever you want >:D

Have a good one and wishing you many more to come

Sorry this is late, but yet another trip with little 'net availability...

But I hope it was a very happy birthday, MK!

Thanks, Birdy and all others who welcomed me to septuagenarianship!

It was a nice day, but I could have done without the unwanted present from Mr Brexit!

I've had my eye on a birding holiday in Peru. It's run by a Peruvian company and priced in US$. Helpfully it shows the price converted to . In the two days after the referendum result was known the holiday went up by 225.

How will the referendum result affect you, Mike, living in Thailand?

My pensions are paid into a UK bank account, so, to quote Harold Wilson, the 'pound in my pocket' is not affected by what has been effectively a 10% devaluation in the value of sterling, until I change it into another currency.
A week ago, one pound was getting me 50 Thai Baht; today it gets me 45.  Let's hope it doesn't get any worse. Obviously, if I buy goods here with my UK debit or credit card, they'll be 10% more expensive when the bank does their conversion.
In theory, British goods should be 10% cheaper abroad, but the question is 'What British goods?' What do we make and export these days?
Anything you buy in UK which originates abroad is going to be 10% more expensive - in your case hotel accommodation in Peru, aviation fuel etc etc.

They've opened Pandora's box, and God knows what is still to come out

Yes, it's a complete and utter shambles. And made worse by the fact that a lot of the Leave voters did so on the basis of out and out lies borne out of one man's burning ambition to be prime minister. I sincerely hope that that person is 'anyone but Boris'. At least it can't be that nasty racist, Nigel Farage.
