As BitCoin, the virtual currency continues to grow in popularity and value, an iconic Yorkshire designer fashion boutique is now accepting it in payment. Robinsons of Bawtry, South Yorkshire is pioneering its payment in the town just as the closure of its only remaining bank, NatWest, has been announced. “We are always keen to support our customers with an enhanced range of services and adopting this new ‘currency’ will perhaps help to fill the hole for some of our customer demographic created by the removal of traditional banking methods from the town.” said Russell Jones Robinsons of Bawtry. “This is just another way in which we adapt to new ways of purchasing and complements the recent introduction of our Interest Free Credit option.” To use BitCoin in store customers should simply choose their goods and payment will be taken at whatever the exchange rate is at the time of purchase. “Using BitCoin in payment couldn’t be more straightforward and we are proud to join just a handful of retailers in the Yorkshire region who now accept this as a legitimate form of payment,” said Russell. “And, with Christmas shopping in full swing now we remind our customers

The moment inspiration strikes, oddly enough sat in my local Costa sipping on a Billionaires latte (it’s delicious by the way), however, to drink them frequently you may need to be a millionaire 1 medium Billionaire latte at my local Costa will set you back £3.60 each so if you had one a week that would be £187.20 per year or £15.60 per month. I love my coffee so will absorb the costs of my mildly extortionate habit on a weekly basis but it got me thinking what else could I do with £15 per month? As a non smoking healthy 30 year old female this could get me £549,287 of life insurance guaranteed until age 55 provided I paid the premiums on a monthly basis. That is a serious amount when it comes to life insurance if I was to die that would repay the mortgage, pay for the boys to go to university and still leave money left over for any additional expenses that Dan encountered. However, we would still be in a muddle if I was to be critically ill. Same information non smoking healthy 30 year old female, premium of £15pm what would could I get for
