Wake up & count your blessings... You might actually find something that would make you happy!!!
Rich and happy??? Is there any guarantee that being rich would make you happy?? For sure being happy would make me rich!

as for finding something to be happy about, it's not easy when:
you are 49
you have no career
your net worth is less than 0
you have nothing for retirement.
and you havent had a girlfriend in over 20 years

Randall, could be worse. At least you have your health. You know, 2 legs, 2 hands, 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 noses...I mean 1 nose
Maybe this will cheer you up?

Do you believe that if loves comes to home, money and peace will automatically follows love in home....

Let's look at glass half full:
1.you are 49 - wow, another this many years ahead!
2.you have no career - what is "career"? look, I am unemployed....
3.your net worth is less than 0 - who's isn't? (well, mine isn't, but it is an American way to be in debt)
4.you have nothing for retirement - there's always Medicaid and Medicare
5.and you havent had a girlfriend in over 20 years - if you mean "sex", I bet you could ask Javaranchers to send you a dollar each, and go out and get some serious pampering... I don't know about Love though...

Peace maybe, but definitely NOT money. Unless your love is rich or a financial expert.
