I'm on a crash Bitcoin course. Wish I had the cash to profit from them... :-(

Very clever, especially the "digit by digit" reference. I often spot those types of clever wordplay references in your drabbles but don't usually make a point of praising them.

Thanks very much Christopher. Mrs H says they’re just me trying to be a smartarse! But with three brothers and our parents all trying to outdo each other with wordplay as we grew up, I had no choice!😀
