"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Location, location, location!

Having been musing over the ever escalating price of property in the U.K. over the weekend, I came across 2 items in the news today. The first is this one about an island for sale off the coast of Guernsey - a snip at £50,000 to £200,000. Sounds absolutely idyllic although some idiot has apparently suggested that it would be a good place for a casino!
The other is if the quiet island life gets too quiet and you fancy a move to the bright lights of London, Mayfair, to be exact. This little pied a terre will set you back £25,000 a week in rent.
So, the choice is yours. No contest really....I'd go for the island retreat any time, but definitely without the casino!
