Idle Money

I mean really!! Savings accounts paying 2 tenths of one percent, Money Markets paying 3 tenths of one percent, and less than 2% on a 5 year CD, why does anyone save money? I think itís time to use the idle money to pay off the RV loan and quit paying the banks 5 % to 12% interest on their money.

Our local community bank pays 3.5% interest on our checking account. I feel blessed!

I would feel as if I'm cheating you by sending my idle money to you Nigel. If I sent you $1,000 it would only be worth 750 Euros, or just 630 British Pound Sterling. Nah, I just canít cheat my RV friends like that.

Nice one!

But 630 GBP's would buy us some fish and chips (to go)

Now now boys. No fighting. Everyone knows Canada is a safe place to invest so you can both send your idle money to me and I will see that it gets a little action. Maybe a quick trip to the casino or something like that. Believe me with my luck it would be a very quick trip. Old Guys
