The real story: people dream of being rich.





Not a true story below:


A recently retired New York man wanted to use his retirement funds wisely,  decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal .  

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 years; the owner  and wife both had died, and there were no  heirs.

The estate was being sold to pay back taxes. There had  been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut. No  one wanted to go to the  extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't  complimentary to the property anyway... so, no  one made an offer on the place. The New York gentleman bought it as  is, paying  just over half of the property's  worth; moved in, and set  about to access the barn... curiosity was killing him.

So, he  and his wife bought a generator and a couple of grinders... and cut thru the welds.

What was in the  barn...?


The doors  were welded shut, but a grinder took care of that.

"We are born to learn, but somewhere along the way many of us pick up the idea that we must be taught in order to learn. We think that if someone doesn't stand up in front of us and talk to us with either a chalkboard or PowerPoint slides, we cannot learn. We must regain our sense of wonder and our desire to learn." --R.Tennant, "Strategies for Keeping Current," Library Journal, 9/15/2003, p.28.
