I was born twice, first as a baby girl on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960, and then again as a teenage boy in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan in August of 1974.

Could someone please define the word rich to me?

I know it is not $200,000 for an individual or $250,000 for a couple. LOL

Having a great deal of money or assets; wealthy. Devilish

:


Fulsome, mouth-coating, heavy, velvety

If you mean monetarily, IMHO a family making $250k a year, year in year out is moderately wealthy. A family making $500K a year, year in year out is rich. It’s more the fact that they can build on their wealth every year as opposed to being “one and done”. One good year has to be pretty good to make and keep someone or a family “rich”.


Looking forward to those mags of '08 Salon.

Rich has nothing to do with money.

Rich is having really, really good friends like you, who send me their very best bottles of wine on a regular basis.

So far, I'm not actually as rich as I'd like to be.

Knowing the price of everything, but the value of nothing does not make one rich, but sadly, rather pathetic.

Ha, no. Just the opening lines of a book ( Pulitzer Prize) I found on an airplane onetime when flying to Amsterdam.

That opening alone caused me to read the entire book. Big Grin
