You say, "Some girls said like they would set up an amazing charity organisation, others were gonna irrigate the Sahara desert and bring christianity to the parched ones there. The teacher reinforced all that with comments like "Oh what a Good Little Girl!"

Irene, which little girl were you?

i'd go and start a school in siem riep, cambodia, or perhaps in burma.
to teach shop and hospitality english to women and girls, so they can get decent, reasonably paid jobs. train up local teachers to continue.
and this is no 'goody-two-shoes' thing. i know i'd get great satisfaction out of it, for my own soul.

Its a question I have often asked myself....as money, or the lack of it..... is no longer a factor that rules my life.

Like Glenn and Kris....what I have, I own.....no debts....and as I write my thoughts here, no real desires except to be close to those I care for......and hopefully, to repay what I owe to those who gave their time and resources when I needed them....

So I would do just that.....educate the children of the staff that has worked in my family over the years. For this my father has already established a trust...and I would make sure that it fulfills its purpose...

.....If money can change lives for the better....maybe financially help some of my friends, and leave whatever I have to the institution that gave me a life and a career....they will always have a need.....

may sound whacky to some......but here I am totally with Virginia....its not a goody-two-shoes thing.....its just that I have finally got the answer to another trick question; "How much is enough?"

After a long absence here (I never was so busy as after retirement last year....) it was good to see that many 'old' CS-friends are still alive and active. Probably I have missed many interesting discussions here but sometimes it's inevitable to make choices.
About the question of Lars: unfortunately the amount is not large enough to make a really interesting fund for third world projects helping directly people fishing (in stead to give fish), but I would like to do that. I would also give a part to our children who are in a stage of their life with high costs. And I would support some cultural initiatives in my hometown.
But I also agree with those who say it's better to ask such a question WHILE talking with people who are visiting you than to consider the answer as a condition for accepting people in advance. But is's nice provocative question and I know Lars would never ask such a question in real life....

The "charities" that I try to support help lots of people make money. I invest in their future.

IBM. MicroSoft, Tyco, Harley-Davidson, etc.

Fiirst of all, I'm SO glad you're safe and well.

It's the pits your downtime $$$ from work is taken up by a natural catastrophe, but thank goodness you're ok. Priceless.

As far as putting it into your apt, BRAVO!!! You CAN change your world.

What are your top 3 renovation issues?
