Last night I was watching Warren Buffet on Fox News and he was telling a story about his children.
"I did not build my wealth for them to inherit it," says he.
His 3 children must have been very ???? (angry) (disappointed) when he gave the vast majority of his multi-billion dollar fortune to Bill Gates...who he referred to as his 3rd son.
But what I was most intrigued with in the conversation, is that his children all only had a high school diploma, never mind the fact they could all have doctorates if their hours at college could add up.
What he and I have in common is this...a belief that an education beyond high school is secondary to a great work ethic and a creative mind!
America is the great country that it is because if you possess
1. A decent ability to communicate
2. A grasp of the English language
3. A bit of whimsy and honesty
you can become a very rich person. Interestingly enough...all those who honor that way of thinking would consider themselves being rich in a way that money was not the measure.
Case in point...for all those people who love to have a fire but
1. Don't have a fireplace
2. Don't like the mess
3. Fear termites
This channel is for you. There is a channel called The Fireplace Channel.
Imagine....you can put this on your gigantic big screen tv and feel as if you are cozied right up to a crackling romantic blazing fire.
