Pretty much every bottle of wine I drink is free. By the time I drink them I bought them so long ago I dont remember when I got them or how much I paid. So when I drink them? They are free to me that day

So true, Scaredy, and many more meaningful things in life are free. Money just helps us provide food, shelter, and an enjoyable life for ourselves and our families while we're here. There will come a day, for all of us, when we won't need anything material at all.

"A GoFundMe has now been set to help the couple rebuild. It was then shared on Facebook, by Lynne's niece, Heather Balaban, who wrote: 'My aunt Lynn and her husband Keith are the sweetest, most giving people I know.

...

'Unfortunately, last night their home burnt to the ground, and they had no time to grab any of their belongings because they were evacuated in Laguna Niguel.'

As of 1.30pm EST on Thursday, the online fundraiser had raised $1,550 from seven donors to help the family.

Keith Morey told NBC Los Angeles that his Tesla was in his garage when the fire began but luckily neither him nor his wife were home when the fire made its approach. "

...let me get this straight...they own a 4800 sf home worth many millions of dollars on a hilltop (I looked it up) with million dollar views that I'm sure is insured and they have a GoFundMe set up to get $50K?? Talk about entitlement!

Apparently they think they can't settle for the free best things in life.

I know that spot well. Have been playing the golf course in the canyon where it started for many years and have some friends up there fortunately spared

Exactly, Svelte. Nothing wrong with GoFundMe for those in need, and my heart definitely goes out to all of those people who lost their homes--it could happen to any of us in CA. We do have family up there who are OK, but, it's amazing how some who appear to be in a positive financial position either feel entitled, or, more likely, in reality, did not prepare for the unexpected in life.

We had a neighbor who was living large in RSF, and then, unexpectedly, passed away quickly from colon cancer at 58. GoFundMe was set up the next day. Couldn't believe it.
