According to yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald, Richard Branston is blowing some serious bread on a mix of B737 type of aircraft.
The paper reckons that he is spending $50 billion on a whole 50 aircraft.
Does anyone have any spare Boeing shares?

Pickles in Virgin olive oil . . . how nice!
Well, maybe not Branston pickles.
(It's probably also worth mentioning that he wouldn't have much left for pickles or olive oil if he spent a billion dollars each on 50 737s! And of course, it's BRANSON!)

Picallilli formed a circus, albeit in a roundabout sort of way. He refused to accept that no man is an island.
