Wow what would you do if you had some money?
Have a holiday? OK

A bit more money.

Buy a big house!

Wow 20 bedrooms, whats this?
Are we in the novel
"The great Gatsby?"

Well in the paper last week there was a big house for sale.
Mr.Getty is selling up and moving on.
When he was young he was kidnapped and his grandad wouldn't pay the ransom, so after holding the boy, who was only 16 at the time they cut off his ear and sent it to the family.
Now that was something for a young boy to go through for sure.
Well he became drug dependant and eventually after an overdose he became paralysed.

What I am saying is that money brings as many problems as it brings pleasures.

Would the person who is Paris Hilton be a much better if she had been born less rich? I do honestly think so.

Hard as it is to keep poor or middle class kids on the straight and narrow, I cannot imagine how hard it would be to monitor wealthy kids.

I think I may have told you before about a strange tale told to me from someone from east Africa, Mozambique I think.

"Be careful what you wish for John" she said.(Damn those IDs with your name on it)
In my country if you want to be a very wealthy and successful person you could be given a Gen by the witch doctor. It is half fish half animal, once you get one you become very very rich and successful. The price you pay is that it lives on the energy of the person you love the most. You get richer, they get weaker. They suffer all the time and they do not die they just suffer on. You cannot kill it because if you try it will destroy you and it will destroy your soul as well.

My stop is just along here, goodbye"

So she jumped out and I later spoke to a guy from Mauritius and he said that in their culture the Gen exists as well.

It is an intersting take on the Midas Touch,

A girl from Thailand won something like €370,000 in the Lotto the other day, her time in Ireland away from family and friends is now well and truly over, happy days.

"Before strongly desiring anything, we should look carefully into the happiness of its present owner."

Thanks Mike

Once apon a time I was driving a film crew around to do a big shoot.
I didn't mind mud in the van so I brought the crew right into the field and let them shelter in the van when it rained. (Sorry if you heard this before, but its good)
There was a shot to be taken with 2 horses. One guy was a japanese pop star and a yong girl on another horse.
I worked with horses when I was younger so it was natural that I held her horse when she dismounted.
I said how the time was absolutely dragging and then told her that she had the most fantastic teeth that I had ever seen and would she lend them to me for the weekend!, She laughed and we sat on a bale of hay talking for a while. The conversation was very strange to say the least, but looking back on it now then made perfect sense.
"look I am not being paid to be here, tell them if the shoot dosen't take place in 10 mins I am going" So I went to the interpreter and told her, she just oignored me, so when I went back to the girl she told me to watch carefully and hold on to her horse. "Tell her I am gone."She jumped into her BMW and waved me goodbye!.

I went over to the film crew and told them the news.

Wow, what a panic!

Phones out, calls made and in 15 mins later she was back.

So with a big smile and a wink she jumped on her horse and the scene was shot.

She asked me to ride her horse around the paddock and then back to the stables.

When I got back an old guy who was a neighbour said to me " The Princess likes you."
"Is that her name, Princess" I said
"No she is the daughter of the king of ****** Princess *******"
So it all came together, "It is very hard for me you know, I have to be very careful who I speak to...."
Well she married into the Saudi royal family later on, now she is a Queen.

I bet she still remembers the joke I told her.

King Bono of U2 fame came in for a bit of bad publicity today. He collected €11,.5 million in 2008 for his poverty in Africa campaign but only handed over €141,250 to charity.
The article went on to explain that he had spent €6 million in adminstration !

I guess he just wants to keep them poor.

Its strange I found a financial hero shortly after that, Make money and help people, its not for buying €6,000 watches with.

While I am it.

To all my New York readers.
