Well, I can't live in Switzerland and not make some comment on financial matters. Anyway, emptying out my pockets this evening I looked at the pile of francs which included ones from 1965 to 2008. As much as I like the new british designs we just don't have this sense of continuum in the UK - decimalisation (hey, I've never faffed with these old systems), then the shrinking of the 10p etc. I just about remember pound notes (non scottish) but thats it. Is change always a good thing?
