Where would you keep a £Million?

following on from the recent northern rock debacle, if you had a serious amount of money, i.e. a million upwards, where would you put it if you wern't spending it? The stock market (or anything market related)? A nice 'safe' bank? The mattress? somewhere else?

Under a rock??

But not the Northern Rock.

I would not keep it at all.
If the situation was that you had no immediate need- got a roof over your head ,got a car, kids taken care of etc.,etc.,

Simply give it to your most favourite cause where it would the most good- a local hospice comes to mind.
Then the worry of what is happening to it will gone to be replaced with a feel good glow- what could be better.

One or more lottery winners have had that type of money, and their attitude was Spend Spend Spend (and never regretted doing so)!.

Spend, spend, spend and just leave enough over to keep me in my quickly approaching old age.

By the time I spread it out amongst the children, grand children and great grand children. I wouldn't have a lot left to worry about. So I would just keep it in the bank as normal.

In a small (it would have to be with only one million) apartment somewhere near Lord's so I didn't have to get up stupidly early when the Test matches were on.
It's not likely to lose its value either.

I'd keep it in my Northern Rock account and live off the interest.

what-You'd charge people to come and have a look at it because of its rarity value? :0)
