2011c The thing about old money, meaning those who made their fortunes many, many years ago, is they, many times, tend to have a lot of old things lying around. No different from people today who buy up a lot of stuff and store it away,...old money people just got started sooner. Really old stuff is fun to pick up at garage sales and frequently for only a few bucks. I just wonder that if this age were to go on for another fifty years, I think these Ipads, computers and cell phones of today wouldn't be worth very much. Today's stuff just doesn't carry the same value as the stuff from the days of old money.
