Some happy news for a change

This article doesn't really fit our format . . . though in a way, I suppose it is in large part about food. I felt compelled to share it because in this season of miracles and blessings, this is such a powerful story of hope.


Did you see this article on MSN: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34264774/ns/world_news-wonderful_world/?GT1=43001? Two homesless brothers living in a cave in Budapest, Hungary have inherited a share of $6.6 billion dollars. That's billions.


You might think their main concerns would be a big house, fancy clothes and tons of food; but those are not foremost in the brothers' minds.


“If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now — all we really had was each other — no women would look at us living in a cave,” said Geza Peladi. “But with money, maybe we can find a partner and finally have a normal life.”


I think this statement is precious; but I have to admit, it did recall images of SNL's Festrunk brothers played by Dan Ackroyd and Steve Martin. Let's just hope if the brothers come to America to find "foxes," they don't turn in to "two wild and crazy guys!" :-)

Awwww, that's really a nice thing to share! Although the vision of the two 'wild and crazy guys' after living in a cave is kinda scary...
