If all of your problems revolve around money, money can solve them all....money won't solve all everyone's problems, but it would mine...:Smile

        How about the guy who is building a 90 million dollar house in Naples. He sold his telecommunication company a while back. He had to buy 4 houses and break them down just for the room. The lot alone costs 25 million.

        Then there's that woman who built a 60 million dollar house, with a chapel on top of it. The cabinets alone are 3 million.

        Both of them must be just horribly unsatisfied with their hideous lives. I feel so sorry for those poor souls. Poor things.

        They must be totally misreable. tsk tsk....

        I didn't hear about the $90 million house, just the one in Port Royal that sold a few months ago for $40 million.   That's really having way too much money IMHO.  Honestly, you and I don't agree on this (which is okay) but I just want a little cottage and some privacy.  When I lived on Sanibel and Captiva there were plenty of millionaires who lived in very small houses, wore jeans all the time and drove old cars. Very different attitude than Naples.  Not everyone is ostentatious.

            Obviously if health is an issue the point of money is moot, but even then one can get the best health care for comfort and other qualities of life.

            I think the issue here is about relatively healthy people and happiness, not if you have one foot in the grave. And to compare a loser like britney spears is rediculous. This is what I was saying in my earlier post about putting everyone in one pot. Britney is britney, and I'm me, not her, not joe schmo, or any other clown who foolishly wastes their lives away.That's them, not me.

            Like I said before, sure there are wealthy people who are misreable, but there are plenty of wealthy people who are very content. So what is your point? There's this group and that group to everything, including wealthy and non wealthy people. Somehow people think wealth is immune to groupings of people.

            When I pick up people from a 3 million dollar house in Bonita Bay, in Bonita Springs Florida and drive them to the airport, they have a smile from ear to ear.

            Pacattack, I like the way you think.  I started this  Thread to hear the funny one liners that always accompanied the phrase "money can't buy you happiness..."  It was supposed to be fun and lighthearted  but It turned into much more.  It made me think about what people really value.  But  like I continue to say  we (I assume)  all play the lottery, we are not doing it for fun.  So we are hoping  for some sort of happiness that we think winning will bring.  I guess it depends or what your current needs are.  Its a shame to think that David edwards needs were  a Spider, a lamborgini and Blues Brothers statues.  And  Jack Whittaker,  he was already wealthy, I'm still not sure why he played the lottery.

                  Hey Justxploring,

                   

                  Thanks for the clarification. It's weird how you can go through life and never have to write certain words that you actually say.  I was hoping the someone would respond to that part of my post.

                        Hey Justxploring,

                         

                        Thanks for the clarification. It's weird how you can go through life and never have to write certain words that you actually say.  I was hoping the someone would respond to that part of my post. 

                        Then there's hail, hail (the gang's all here)  LOL 

                         

                        It's worse when you know the words and you pronounce them incorrectly anyway.  Epitome is one that gets me for some reason.  I can't tell you how many times I've read something too quickly and say ep-i-tome (like home) instead of ep-i-to-me.   There are a few others like that.

                            Sorry folks I couldn't resist.  This morning I again heard the cliche'  "money can't buy you  happiness".  My first response was...

                             

                            MAYBE, BUT YOU CAN SURE DRIVE UP TO MISERY IN A HELLUVA NICE CAR!

                            I think money can solve alot of problems, but it will introduce a whole bunch of new ones!

                              You're absolutely correct.

                              I'll have so many problems in deciding whether I should have a 10 room mansion, or a harem of 5 or 10, twenty three year old ladies hanging around.

                              Or whether I should have 15 guitars in my million dollar state of the art home studio or 25 guitars.

                              So many problems, so little time.
