Happy Birthday today Decimal Currency! Do you remember the day? I expect it is one of those days - like the day President JFK got assassinated - that everyone in this country remembers. I rather think it was a Friday. Whatever day it was I know I went into Beatties food Department after school with my Deputy - we used to do our food shopping and then go into the cafe for afternoon tea. Beatties was the 'posh' shop in Wolverhampton, where I lived at the time. I remember buying three eating apples and being horrified because the tag said seventy give pence, which sounded an exhorbitant amount. Now, of course, we are all so accustomed to it that we have completely forgotten pounds, shillings and pence.
