Rich or poor, it's nice to have money

Since the time I was a child, I remember my father spouting off his mother's wise idioms. One in particular was, "Rich or poor, it's nice to have money."Will money make you happy? Not necessarily, but certainly it can make things easier...bills, groceries, living in a nice neighborhood, better schools for your children, vacations that don't involve a tent and a $28-per-night campsite when you can't afford to take your kids to Disneyland.According to an Austrian multi-millionaire, money hasn't…See More

Help a single dad who recently lost his wife to breast cancer
