Money doesn't grow on trees...

There is an old proverb from Anon, he of many old poems etc, from the 18th century wrote:

Rags make Paper
Paper makes Money
Money makes Banks
Banks make Loans
Loans make Beggars
Beggers make Rags.

Off on a tangent I know but in this day and age pretty apt I think.

Or we dig it out of the ground, using the gold standard.

Nice one trousers.
As you know all too well money does not grow.
Oh yes trees do grow unless monet stops them growing.

Nah, I wouldn't say that's off on a tangent, bikerted - especially, as you say, with how things are at the moment.

If I knew where to dig, zhoen...

Thanks fire byrd!

zola, I didn't know Monet stopped trees from growing - though it would make sense, getting them to stay still while he painted them...
