      @tasha: A very good question and i used to know, but as you get older it is less important to have a bigger house or a newer car. I think I am lucky to have a job that I enjoy going off to nearly every day and that gives me enough satisfaction in the constructive aspect of the job not to pine after a lot more money. If i had it I would probably take many more holidays and see other parts of the world with my wife. Regards Robin

      I would buy a house so I had somewhere to live, and then go and visit all the places I could think of. I would love to see what research other people are doing too.
