Old Money -New Money

What is old money? What is new money? Well, it all stemmed from watching one of my all-time favorite and tastefully done movies, the “Titanic.”  A caption in the film caught my attention, and it went something like this. But the plot was referring to one of the main stars in the movie that was born into money. And somebody related to him as, “He comes from old money” Old money meaning the person was born into wealth.

China’s Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou episode in Canada will soon be coming to an end. The bullying and trumped-up charges by the US Administration will finally go away, I think?

A few years back I wanted to start my own web site. I wanted to speak my mind to the world and blogging was the direction I wanted to go, so I needed a web hosting service… I think.  It was suggested to me to go with a Canadian provider like Canspace Web Hosting Solutions.
