More money than sense!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

More money than they need - at least he's keeping his in circulation and having fun with it. :lol:

And really, that's a work of art architecturally - grander than your average garden shed or attic/cellar to play with your trainset or scalextrix I grant you :happy-jumpeveryone:

I totally agree, it's a lot more fun than having the cash sitting in a bank and watching disappear as the bank goes bust. At least this way he employed a few people
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

And think of the enjoyment you can have, no wife, G/F beathing down your neck saying your getting under her feet etc. Bliss beats a garden shed anyday day. :lol: :dance: :mrgreen:
