It's not funny for me to make money.
Never was. I am happy when I sign a new contract but this is all.

Oh I agree wholeheartedly with you Rusty! Money inspires me to work! I mean, I`m always working anyway, but when there is money to be had in return it just makes any old thing more meaningful!

.... and then when I got money, I like to get more .... so I just keep on working and my money begins to join in the fun too ..... We have a sort of partnership arrangement that works very well.jackolantern

Just read today that a town in Jolly Old England (Lewes) is printing it´s own money.Pound has parity with sterling.Idea is to keep the dosh circulating in the local shops and boost trade.Check Sky News website.

Is this legal????

Actually it could be. Many years ago I was told that the Welsh will not use businesses outside of Wales for the same reason, keep the dosh local.

You young ùns need to learn that there is nothing to be scared about with money. Money is merely an entity - like your next door neighbor - show your fear and they think you scared of them and they begin to make your life a misery. Just show your money that you aint scared of it - dont spend it - leave it sitting in a dark vault somewhere - it will soon learn to behave itself and serve you as its meant to!

Any Medium of Exchange would instill the same Emotion in you,unless you accept it for what it is,a Medium Of Exchange with NO Volition of it's own.conversing

I agree with you here. Imagine how people were when they used Cowries as a means of barter? Bet some people got greedy or stole others Cowries?

Money is an Entity and you gotta treat it as such. It is repelled by those who Love it, and attracted to those who Use it.

The Barter system would probably create just as much animosity and lucre does with some folk - imagine how hard you would have to work to have enough to exchange for everything you wanted? And sometimes you would be paid in your own vegetables that were stolen during the night!

On a serious note I have personally found money to make people mean, and quite often the more they,ve got the meaner they are. My wealthy clients are less inclined to pay the rates I demand than their less well off counterparts. Often I ask the wealthy for more and the less wealthy for less.
