Father Barnabas 'THe dollar is worth less than a pound.
AbigailPortia was for 3 weeks
Nanasmo ABIGAIL Nice. What was the weather like?
exlirrbob I always wanted to visit England now in not so sure
CajunCatholic2 well he left
Father Barnabas It takes about $1.23 to buy one British Pound Sterling.
Nanasmo FATHER BARNABAS Thank you. So he'd be getting a bargain more or less. :-)
locksley69 Abi ... you said the pound is worth 80 cents, right? Or is Fr Barn right?
CajunCatholic2 Abigail wanna come here and warm up its close to 90 degrees today
AbigailPortia Im warm now
GoddessHecate I have been backing up my fellow Christians on Twitter lately. Such a shame they are getting hate for what they believe in.
AbigailPortia Yes Locks
AbigailPortia That's what it was yesterday
locksley69 Abi .. it was an either or question ... yes is not the answer .. LOL
CajunCatholic2 Hecate im on twitter too im NCLACAZE1976
Father Barnabas Nans it is a bargain for the British to come here and shop, but a disadvantage for us to go to England and shop.
Nanasmo FATHER BARNABAS so I was wondering what it cost an Englishman to buy an American dollar.
exlirrbob I went to montreal years ago and a dollar was worth about 1/3 more than there money at the time. I went to an expos baseball game, and bought tickets from a scalper. They were 20 bucks apiece... I said is it ok if I pay in American money? his eyes lit up
exlirrbob and he said ok
Father Barnabas About 83 cents.
CajunCatholic2 opps its NCLaCaze1976
exlirrbob so I payed 1/3 more essentially
Nanasmo FATHER BARNABAS Thank you!!
exlirrbob was still 20 to me
Father Barnabas Today it is 0.80, but don't for get there are exchange rate fees!
AbigailPortia Corona, I went to Kinsale in Ireland....sort of close to you
locksley69 For over 150 years the Pound was worth $5. After FDR took us off the gold standard the ratio has continued to diminish. When I visited London 40 yrs ago the Pound was worth about $2
corona345 oooh very nice , nice time?
Nanasmo EXLIRR Thank you - your post re the tickets also helped clear up my confusion.
GoddessHecate I will be back later. Nice to see you all again
Father Barnabas Take care.
Father Barnabas God bless, Hecate.
AbigailPortia Yes it was lovely. Saw St Patrick's resting place
locksley69 Did you kiss the Blarney Stone, Abi?
AbigailPortia No Locks
AbigailPortia Not something I had interest in.
locksley69 I see
Father Barnabas Lesgfhtoore welcome.
locksley69 Hi les
Father Barnabas Les please respond.
exlirrbob Patrick isn't really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn't have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with
exlirrbob but stories are nice I suppose
badmouth the saints perform miracles
Father Barnabas Les this room is not for inappropriate trolling, please respond or you will be removed.
locksley69 bob ... local bishops canonized saints until the 900s when the pope ruled that he alone wd do it
badmouth it has to be prof=ven by many miracles in order to be saints
dashace50 I always assumed the snakes were the Druids.
dashace50 Hello all
Father Barnabas I always assumed they were the lawyers. <GRIN>
dashace50 Howdy Peter
dashace50 Lol Father
AbigailPortia Hi Dash
dashace50 Howdy Abi
Father Barnabas There that should cover it.
Father Barnabas THere, see?
AbigailPortia Ive missed that, Father
locksley69 Dash .. you really must see the movie "St Patrick, the Irish Legend" - great special effects. As soon as he steps onto the Irish coast, he plunges his crozier into the sand and snakes rise up and enter the sea
dashace50 Couple died just before being married. At the heavenly gates they requested a wedding. St. Peter said we don't have marriage in heaven, but was touched by thier love and said "let me see"
Father Barnabas Peter comes and goes more often than a sneeze during hay-fever season.
locksley69 Patric Bergin played the saint .. lotsa fun
locksley69 rofl Fr Barn .. amen
badmouth lol fr b
CajunCatholic2 lol Father
Father Barnabas LOL sorry.
exlirrbob Roger Moore is the saint as far as I am concerned.. just as Sean Connery is James Bond, and William Shatner is Kirk
dashace50 He returned a week later and said " it took some doing but we can pull it off. By then tgey had thought " well if it doesn't work can we get divorced?" St. Peter blew his top.
CajunCatholic2 i noticed he is so quick in and out
dashace50 " it took me a WEEK to find a Priest. How will I get two lawyers and a Judge up here?
Father Barnabas lol!
