I know a family of “Golden Spoon” recipients. They’re not a pretty sight. Greed, superiority complex and the need to separate themselves from the normal riff-raff, was a recipe for disaster. Every aspect of their lives was based on wealth. Karma did one hell of a job on them. Money don’t do much for you when you’re not around to enjoy it.

In the Pioneer days, the early settlers would scatter the remains of the grain shucks, commonly called “thresh”, over the dirt floors within their cabin. To prevent the thresh from being kicked or blown out, a barrier was installed across the entrance. This also helped to keep out unwanted dirt from entering. Hence, the threshold was invented. Which reinforces the adage, “Necessity is the mother of invention”. Another dewdrop in your fountain of knowledge.
