well lets see.40 yrs ago a grand was a pretty good chunk o change to have in your pocket.Our family business was around so a job is a no brainer.Seeing as I live in the Great white north,I guess some shopping for long pants and a jacket would be a good place to start That would leave about 950 for investment in a stock or two.
