“A struggling family facing foreclosure has stumbled upon what is considered to be the Holy Grail of comic books in their basement – a fortuitous find that could fetch upwards of a quarter million dollars at auction.
A family facing home foreclosure finds a rare Superman comic book.
A copy of Action Comics No. 1, the first in which Superman ever appeared, was discovered as they went about the painful task of packing up a home that had been in the family since at least the 1950s. The couple, who live in the South with their children, asked to remain anonymous.”
Now this is a story that just warms the heart.
Bill Gates is trying to save the World: One Billionaire at a Time.
FORTY of America’s billionaires and their families have pledged to give more than half of their fortune to charity in a drive organised by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
Mr Gates and Mr Buffett are reportedly aiming to secure pledges from each of the approximately 400 US billionaires.
If the entire group were to surrender half of its wealth that would amount to some $US600 billion ($657 billion), Forbes magazine estimates.
Amongst the group are famous names you may be familiar with: CNN founder Ted Turner, Hollywood director George Lucas, Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
God Bless you Bill. Keep up the good work.
