A RICH but lonely old lady has left her entire estate, worth $12.5 million to her neighbour, who bought her bread and milk and helped her manage her daily chores.
Betty Harris, who died aged 95 in 2009, chose to leave her estate to her neighbour in the millionaires enclave of Point Piper in Sydney after she felt her niece was trying to force her into a nursing home.

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

  • It seems so important now but you will get over.

Well if both her and her neighbor lived in the millionaire's enclave then her neighbor was already a millionaire.

The gesture is still appreciated even in context.

Tomorrow i am going out to buy loads of milk and bread and distribute one of each to all the old ladies living on their own in a big house...you never know. ;)

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

The niece clearly felt threatened by the close relationship Mrs Harris had with the neighbours - so why wasn't she there instead?  Doing those things her Aunt needed done? Easing her loneliness?  And where were the rest of the nieces and nephews?

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Probably a bit more to the story.  The little old darlin' might have been a royal terror to be around  :w00t:   As an X Ray technologist i once had a 102 year old woman offer to "give me her fist" if I hurt her anymore while taking a portable chest film.  I was being as gentle as was possible.  She must have been hell on wheels when she was younger :)

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...
