Marrying Trouble

wealthymattersHere’s another wonderful story penned by Sunita. Ladies should you ever feel tempted to encourage a player,read this story.Ponder.Then desist.The Masters of Love may seem irresistible at the moment but a few days of giving into the madness will buy you a lifetime of troubles:

It seems this wonderful lady whom we all admire for being so accomplished, smart, intelligent, well qualified , good looking ( she studied overseas during her university days)and  coming from a well established old Mumbai family fell in love with a much married and divorced man. Much against her mother’s wishes she married him and told her mother that she was living her own life. Over the years they had their own two children in addition to his earlier kids and supposedly they lived happily ever after.But it seems this man is a born “lover” who periodically falls in love with another woman apart from his wife. It is not looks which get to him but the woman’s personality – the ability to make him laugh and exchange views with her. Fifteen years ago the wife found out that he was terribly attracted to this charming middle aged divorcee who gamely indulged in some mild flirtation. The husband’s ardour was aroused and he would have gone on to have another full fledged affair but the wife went to the new love and told her “You’ve already suffered the consequences of having your house wrecked by another woman, why are you doing this to me?” The middle aged woman backed off and the woman’s marriage was saved.

The Playboy Story


Hugh Hefner’s parents were teachers and he grew up in a conservative household.He worked on an army news paper in his service days and took creative writing lessons at university.He then went to work as a copywriter for Esquire.He quit Esquire in being denied a $5 raise.

Out on his own Hefner was determined to start his own publication, one that was similar to Esquire but better.

He mortgaged his furniture to raise a bank loan of $600 and raised $8,000 from 45 investors—including $1,000 from his mother,who believed in her son rather than his crack-pot idea—to launch Playboy magazine.

Hefner wanted to name the magazine “Stag Party” but was forced to change it to avoid a trademark infringement with the existing Stag magazine. A friend suggested the name “Playboy,” after a defunct automobile company in Chicago. Hefner liked the name, as he thought it reflected high living and sophistication.

Hefner produced the first edition of Playboy out of his Hyde Park, Chicago, kitchen. It hit newsstands in December 1953, but did not carry a date because Hefner was unsure as to whether or not a second issue would be produced. To help ensure its success, Hefner had purchased a color photograph of actress Marilyn Monroe in the nude—which had been taken before her movie star career—and placed it in the centerfold of the magazine. The first issue quickly sold 50,000 copies, and became an instant sensation.

The Story Of The Most Expensive Coin In The World

wealthymatters.comIn 1933, the President of the United States of America, Franklin D. Roosevelt stopped the coinage of gold and made it illegal to own the metal (although coin collectors could retain their pieces). With one exception, no 1933 double eagles were ever legally released, although some were stolen from the government, and over the years several were recovered.

In the summer of 2002, a 1933 Double Eagle was auctioned off for $7,590,020 , which shattered the old record of $4,140,000 paid at a public auction for an 1804 silver dollar. This piece is unique as the only 1933 double eagle the U.S. government has deemed legal for its citizens to own (having been negotiated as such through terms of a U.S. treaty with a foreign government). Even illegal instances of the 1933 double eagle would be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, but it would be illegal for a U.S. coin dealer to broker a deal with one of these coins. There is no other date of St. Gaudens double eagle that is worth a significant fraction of this extraordinary coin. In fact, a complete uncirculated set of all other St. Gaudens double eagles could be put together for just over three million dollars (less than half the price paid for the 1933), including the extremely rare, ultra-high relief, proof pattern. Without the rare pattern, the set would be less than $ 750,000. Read more of this post
