I Forget Where We Were

One of my favorite songs of this year is ‘I Forget Where We Were‘ by Ben Howard (complete with quirky guitar playing – hark, left).

The Dreaded Greenback and The Danger (Mouse) Faced

Although currencies are one of the key ingredients on the burrito, they are treated somewhat more like a garnish (salsa or cheese) rather than a staple (meat or beans). But no more I tell you! For today we swing the spotlight onto currencies, and we do this through the villain that is Baron Greenback (aka the US dollar) from the cartoon Danger Mouse. So let’s take a look at some of the key battles that are currently underway for the big bad Baron with some of its (arch-enemies) counterparts: » read more
