"Can't live on less than $53,000 a week."

Really?  REALLY?  36-year-old Swedish countess/divorcee, Marie Douglas-David, has been quoted as saying she cannot live on $43 million.  I'm no math major (Terry will second this) and don't balance my bank statements (if it looks close, that's good enough for me!), but if I divide $43,000,000 by 60 years (I'm going out on a limb in thinking she will live a long time, should she not succumb to poverty, of course), divided by 12 months per year = $59,722.22 per month.  It's only $6,000/month off, which would likely be her interest, but that's not my point.

WHAT would people do with $53,000 a week?  My mind can't quite wrap around it except I admit to thinking it would be a fun problem to have.  Just think of the good that someone could do with $53,000 each week!  What would YOU do with $53,000?!



Praying today for my friend L's daughter, B., who has a large mass growing in her chest and putting pressure on her heart.  B. meets with a thoracic surgeon today to discuss the next course of action. B. turns 20 years old this spring.

You know, that's why I don't follow the media much. I just get so frustrated at the signal that sends to my children. Especially in times like these.

At the moment, I would be happy to have enough money to hire a coder to finish my husband's game. :)

I'll be praying for your friend's daughter.

I'm with you, Melissa! We've cancelled the paper and watch very little TV, but I heard this on Good Morning America today and couldn't help rant about it a little.

I saw this in our paper as well. I could do a lot with that monthly payout. Amazes me people can have this much and its not enough!

Glad you had a good time in Texas.

Haha, wow, I could think of a few things if I "had to" live on $53K a YEAR!
That poor little darling, what would she do with less than that per week?
