With £25Million sitting in the bank spare (it's unlikely to be in a current account but hey …) I'd not be 'investing' in this project.

I'd be like TDD, enjoying myself and squandering the rest (no children to pass it on to and no wife to worry about :) )

I might give some to local railway preservation societies (there are few near here such as the Bowes Incline Railway and the Tanfield Railway ) but not a great deal as a proportion of the whole £25 Million.

Met an elderly chap earlier this evening who said he'd never drunk, never smoked and never womanised but he was here today celebrating his 90th birthday!

I asked him how? :D
.
I would have asked him WHY?

If I had spare millions I would spend most of it on wine, women and song. Then I'd squander the rest :D :D
After all that wine, women and song - the Inheritance Tax bill could be rather large!
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

The Inheritance Tax bill will be tiny if you spend most of it - but it may come quicker than you wish if you have too much wine and the wrong type of woman!

Interpret it as you wish! Either one who loves your money more than you or a woman of ill-repute or a one who kills you (in whatever way! ;) ) or whatever you wish a woman to be :)

I have to say I'd be tempted if the Euromillions came up. As is, will 25p help?

I came up on the Euro last night - £8. Imagine how thrilled I was till I learned they paid it into my old bank :oops:

Good job it wasn’t the jackpot then, imagine the difficulty of getting access to it!
