By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

How do you like to spend your money?

I agree with this quote and I also do the same sometimes. :)

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.

    I like to buy hand bags and dresses most of the time. But, I also spend my money on buying books that I've not read yet. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge you must have a list of spending your money, right? :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I know you spend your money on pretty heavy, difficult but old books. ;)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 2,090 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbli, oh no, they are usually digitised. :)

    Here you have a link to Neo-Latin collections: http://www.philological.bham.ac.uk/bibliography/index.htm

    @Xanthippe you digest money?:O
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 2,090 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Rare books are often too expensive for an individual to buy. You had to read them in special reading rooms under surveillance. Now you can usually do it at home. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe do you buy books or get them from a library? We don't have some good libraries so here people have to buy books. But I like to spend money on buying some good books.
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 2,090 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbli, I rather get them from libraries. Very often from die Staatsbibliothek in Berlin. I take photos and I read them at home later. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe Oh! No issues if I need a book, I will ask you to get it from the library and send me pictures or scanned copy. ;)

    You've read me right. I go a bit mad when I'm in a bookshop @bubbli.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge what about other things? I don't think you like to spend money only on buying books.

    @PeterS That's nice. Tell me more about Slovakia, people, famous places etc.
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭
    @bubbli a Slovak Republic is quite a new country in formation it was created in year 1993, when we did split from Czech Republic before that was Czechoslovakia Republic which was established in 1918. And you can date back to year 846 A.D. i am not good at history.

    We got High Tatras and Low Tatras in winter there are great skying opportunities, in summer tourist places.
    We got a lot of mountains and a caves, the more famous are the two ice caves the one is Dobsinska and the second one Demanovska.
    A lot of castles, palaces and manor houses, a lot of them are just ruins now days, but the more famous are Spis castle, Devin, Trencin castle.
    We got even a whole Church from wood :smile:
    I am not rly a people person, but if you watch hockey then you may know Miroslav Satan, Zigmund Palffy.

    I am not filthy rich, so I always try to spend money wisely. We go usually hotels once a month, and go for outing after about 3-4 months. Rest I want to save money.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,774 ✭✭✭✭
    The filthy rich don't even think about what things cost @pranitk, but I wonder how much they can really value things when money doesn't mean anything.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @PeterS Nice to know about Slovak Republic. Thank you for sharing this information.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @pranitk it is not about spending money. It is all about enjoyment and you can even enjoy with a cup of tea. :)

  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,774 ✭✭✭✭
    Do you not save anything @p1sm0l? Or do you spend everything by the next payday?

    @Masha2505 what do you mean by your'san'? Do you,mean that you spend everything on you son?
  • p1sm0lp1sm0l Posts: 11 ✭✭

  • nickwunickwu Posts: 51 ✭✭
    I want to have a far travel.But travel cost much money...
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 44,774 ✭✭✭✭
    I was given a little piggy bank when I was a kid and never looked back @p1sm0l. I had a savings account at a building society when I was eleven and used to save my money up to buy things I wanted (usually books). I never lost the habit of saving.
