Think Tamara Ecclestone. Fabulously rich and gorgeous, you and your spouse do not work, you live in fabulous houses in the prime real estate in the world, everything you own is the best of the best, you travel around to the top-end places in the world without any regard for money, sail around in your superyacht, have your helicopter take you to different cities for lunch, take your private jet for longer haul trips, go to elegant parties with fabulous people. Yeah, I could get used to it! [ Reply | More ]

I don't think glamorous implies not working. Anna Wintour has a glamorous life. She works. Id' rather work because you meet more people. Take Alexa Hampton or any of the rich-themselves decorators who hang out with the superrich. they travel to all their homes and dick around with furniture, buy shit, travel to Paris with their clients. I call that glamorous. [ Reply | More ]

She said public. She cannt comprehend how public schools are underfunded and if parents want the best for their child, they need to consider helping. [ Reply | More ]

op: How about the PTA spend its time to lobby the city to just pay enough for the schools to be well functioning? I can't even get my other dc into "universal preK." [ Reply | More ]

because you want more than what the DOE offers -- the 750k the PTA raises at our schools means we have art and dance and hands-on science, plus computers and assistants [ Reply | More ]

op: UES public. They don't charge tuition but you are a pariah if you don't do the donations. I don't see how my taxes are not enough for public school. Why don't we cut down on a parade or some donation to some other country that hates us and just pay the school the amount it needs to run properly. [ Reply | More ]

There is no job that can be done in NYC that can't be done somewhere else. I'm sure his skills are transferable. Plus, if you two are both working, but your income is so low that an annual $1K donation to the school is breaking you, there is no reason to keep your jobs here, and you should move, anyway.
