Looks a "good punt" to me at this time but don't take my word for it.

It's also very toxic so my bit is stored in Switzerland along with a whole lot more. I can't physically get my hands on it but I can get its value at any time. That's how some markets work.

Yes, I did read a little bit about it, and its uses after you posted, and its fascinating. However, I would have gone for BitCoin,...I'm annoyed at myself for not joining that party early on!

I did right at the start in order to buy something from a slightly dubious source. Had a bunch left over that I forgot until I saw how much they Han increased in value at which I flogged them for silly money. No regrets though, just too dodgy for me, still is.

Went to start the car but it wouldn't. Gave the battery a charge for a couple of hours and it started. Took Mrs mart for a blood test.

Then lunch, followed by a doze in the sunshine out in the garden (it was warm enough). A telephone conversation with my bother, another with my sister.

Some step exercises. Now getting the dinner ready.

BitCoin? Really? Hmmm, interesting. I've been looking at some lesser known ones (cheaper, ha!), but like you say, I feel they are a bit more likely to fall. At least BC has been somewhat endorsed by "people in the know"

The hooks on the stretchy thing which is inside the plastic dowel thing, hook onto, each side of the window frame, Pixie, into two other hooks screwed into the window frame, but the stretchy thing is not easy to stretch, it hooks on one side but comes off again when you try to stretch it to the other hook. I need someone strong to stretch it over the other hook while I hold the first hook in place & there isn't a lot of room as the loo is in the way. Son is tall , over 6 feet but even he will have a problem I think. I wish I'd never bothered.

Tried to do it myself & have hurt my back, so the net & the dowel with the hooky thing are flung into a corner by the loo & everything is back on the window sill & the window will stay net less, I have pulled the curtains though.
