  1. Cheque

    A cheque is a document that orders a payment of money from a bank account. The person writing the cheque, the drawer, usually has a current account or checking account where their money was previously deposited. The drawer writes the various details including the monetary amount, date, and a payee on the cheque, and signs it, ordering their bank, known as the drawee, to pay that person or company the amount of money stated. Cheques are a type of bill of exchange and were developed as a way to make payments without the need to carry large amounts of money. While paper money evolved from promissory notes, another form of negotiable instrument, similar to cheques in that they were originally a written order to pay the given amount to whoever had it in their possession. Technically, a cheque is a negotiable instrument instructing a financial institution to pay a specific amount of a specific currency from a specified transactional account held in the drawer's name with that institution. Both the drawer and payee may be natural persons or legal entities. Specifically, cheques are order instruments, and are not in general payable simply to the bearer but must be paid to the payee. In some countries, such as the US, the payee may endorse the cheque, allowing them to specify a third party to whom it should be paid.

Il est parfaitement logique pour moi. que nous marchons à travers le jardin, nous sommes toujours rafraîchi et rajeuni par la brise qui transporte la capture étonnamment parfum exquis de belles fleurs tout autour. La vie semble si merveilleux en ce moment même. Et, en certaines occasions, un spectacle de plantes séchées, avec des pétales secs qui traînent, cueilli des fleurs et des tas de feuilles mortes morts tout autour de nous attrister beaucoup. Une brise froid brutal nous fait frissonner avec le chèque de la sombre réalité choquante. La vie peut être si incroyable et magnifique, et pourtant peut être si froid et cruel parfois .... comme un jardin de roses.
