    Western Union money transfer

    Well it has been a year since this post started. Who would have guessed that my excitement over getting a rate of 74 would have turned into 168. The CCL closed over 180 so I am sure WU will be more tomorrow. It's been a wild ride. Here's to calmer days .

    rumors of a 30% tax on expenses made abroad
