2010 money saving tip

If you want to save money.



Then do not buy a Diary.

Simply get your Telephone Directory and cross out the names and addresses of all the people that you do not know.

Seems reasonable to me.

BTW. When attempting to count sheep: Here's a tip. Count the legs then divide by four.

That's easy for Bob, he won't have to make any deletions because he know's everyone, doesn't he.

Remember to subtract four from total before dividing or else you will include the sheepdog in the calculation

What if it is a 3 legged dog? ( I knew one once, he lost a leg through injury).

What if any of the sheep are, erm, legless?

But they might roll under it!

Could we not just count their tails and divide by one?
