Euro, the new (since 1999) common European currency

Correction, Jan 1, 2000 it became a legal currency... I spent that New Years baby-sitting computers making sure they didn't hiccup with the change, kinda like a warmup for Y2K...

In Revelations, it mentions the harlot riding on the Beast. The two euro has a story from mythology that shows Europa being kidnapped by the god Zeus. Zeus took the shape of a bull. Europa was a phoenecian princess. Zeus took her to Crete.

I am guessing the Euro will go down in flames, eventually...

I read on the news sites some Euro contries are execeeding debt limits, etc. which will make the currency not viable...

Does the military facilitate FX conversions? Or are GIs on their own? It is a mostly unregulated market, kinda like a used car salesman telling you what you car is worth...

Taffy, that is a list of everythign that HAS been used am I correct?


I like silver coins (and gold, but damn if they ain't expensive)


I have found that many older coins are high silver content, especially British coins, I have a pence piece (2 actually, but one is "techinically" my sister's) the size of a milk jug cap that is solid silver from 1900 or 1901, it has that nice color that only good silver gets, not the yellow, but the black as well
