|The Fool:||Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone?|
|JonSharpe:||Having seen the "Oswald - one man one vision" road show I believe it is possible that he may, and only may, had someone to aid him.|
|The Fool:||Okay Gilligan (or Ginger), you're stuck on a deserted island. What one material possession would you hope to have with you?|
|JonSharpe:||A large, and fully stocked supermarket!|
|The Fool:||Describe your fitness program.|
Fitness - does that involve physical exersize?
Let me see -
1) walk to the train station,
2) walk from another train stain to work,
3) walk to lunch
4) 2 then 1 to get home.
5) Walk down the pub!
|The Fool:||Share with us your best money-saving secret -- cutting coupons, sneaking candy into the movies, shopping on Wednesday and pretending you're over 65?|
|JonSharpe:||Every night when I get home I empty my change out of my pockets into a bowl. All the copper and small silver (5,10,20) gets stuck into a big jar and saved. I have saved about 200 notes in 18 months and you don't notice the effect on you wallet!|
|The Fool:||Tell us about your greatest personal success, not necessarily finance related.|
|JonSharpe:||Discovering that Chemistry paid VERY poorly and people pay LARGE somes of money for computer programmers. And discovering Java (computer language)|
|The Fool:||When you aren't working or sitting in front of the computer, what occupies your time?|

2) Currently attempting to decorate my flat.
3) Enjoying life - remember you can save all you want - but it is damned difficult to take it with you!
