Has anyone else noticed the recent strength of the $? In July, the GBP was $2.04 and today it's $1.77!!! We are in a transaction to purchase a second week at our timeshare at Melfort Village and watching daily. We have until Sept. 12 to finalize the deal and I am so excited! Saving $$ by the day!

Also look at the price of OIL, as that is a world wide commodity price only in dollars. As the price of oil goes down, dollars become worth more in comparsion to other currencies.

The dollar is doing much better than earlier this year. But the GBP is lost a lot of its value (not just against the dollar) in the last few months.

I will keep that in mind when I make the charges to my credit card! Thanks.
