I cleaned & ajusted Barbara’s lawn mower. Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) had his jaw broken in a fight with Ken Norton. Purchase Tax & Selective Employment Tax finished today & Valued added tax is in place of them tomorrow Sunday 1st.
Barbara refers to Barbara Carpenter grandma and grandad’s next-door neighbour.
Grandad had an interest in Mohammad Ali. For more detail of his fights that grandad noted, see Chapter 112.
Details of the budget, in which the tax changes grandad mentions were made, are found in Chapter 112.
