    Re: Bowditch 1966 on eBay $1.00

    I think this is so true. The best things in life ARE free, as they say. But
    consequently undervalued. Clean air, water... Freedom ...
    
    An item of furniture was put out on the footpath (nature strip?) with a sign
    'Free To Good Home' and sat there, unwanted. Someone had a brain-wave and
    put out a new sign '$200 Pay Inside'. It was promptly stolen.
