… as Abba sang, today’s focus is sheckles, spondoolies, dosh, dough. There’s never enough, especially now in gloomy Ireland. Today’s self-imposed challenge was to photograph some non-round coins.  Euro coins only conform to the circular style, so instead I found a 20p piece from our recent lengthy stopover in Heathrow Airport, and a 25 centavos coin from Brazil. Obviously the image on the English coin is universally recognisable as Queen Elizabeth who visited these shores for the first time earlier this year.  But, I am stumped as to to the identity of the person on the Brazilian coin. Even the resident Brazilian doesn’t know! So, if anyone can enlighten me, feel free!

Anyway, here are the lyrics to Money by one of my all-time favourite bands, the prog rockers, Pink Floyd!

Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you’re okay.
Money, it’s a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I’ll buy me a football team.

Money, get back.
I’m all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
Money, it’s a hit.
Don’t give me that do goody good bullshit.
I’m in the high-fidelity first class traveling set 
And I think I need a Lear jet.

Money, it’s a crime.
Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie.
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it’s no surprise that they’re 
giving none away.
