Was just reading this in our local paper. Imagine what people here could do with that type of money!

Reminds me of my older former boss, earning squillions between he and his wife but still with a large mortgage and unwilling to pull back on the lifestyle to which their income has them accustomed. He is still working and I am not. Nuff said!

amazing huh.

I can see how it happens. If you told me 10 years ago what I was earning today I would have told you I would have loaded. Problem was, as I earnt more I spent more - i'd imagine it would keep going if you made 300k.

Lucky I woke up!
