Yeah, what's up with that?* *Do the babes not go for millionaires anymore, or is it just that they can't sense my millionaire aura?

And where's the mansion and the yacht that Elmer Fudd kept talking about?

Turns out the term "millionaire" was coined about 150 years ago.* *Back then, it basically connoted what "billionaire" does today.

BTW, I noticed a new feature on zillow.com recently.* * Check out the home of the Beverly Hillbillies.

Re: Crossing into 7 figures

I always thought the mansion used for the Beverly Hillbillies got torn down and replaced with something bigger, but danged if that doesn't kinda look like it!

A bit out of my price range, though. Heck, $1M doesn't get you much any more. Maybe <a href="http://www.zillow.com/HomeDetails.ht...prop=20025974" target="_blank">this place</a>. And even here you'd have to send your 6 kids and housekeeper down to the gas station every time they needed to use the can!

**edit: oops, that didn't work the way I wanted to, but at least the link is clickable.
