    Ah find that ranting and raging doesn't really get anyone anywhere, sure ah erupt from time tuh time only to ask mahself....."Now what good did that do?"
    So ah try tuh keep things as cool as ah can....then ah come across something like this...... well ah'll let y'all judge fer yourself.

    Money, Money, Money. $£$£$£$£$£
    A luxurious mansion finally been sold for £35million.

    Updown Court, in Surrey, was once expected to fetch £75million, but its price was repeatedly knocked down as it failed to find a buyer.
    The house was taken over by the Irish government when owner Leslie Allen-Vercoe defaulted on the debt he had taken on to finance the property.

    The mansion was redeveloped in 2002

    Updown Court first came on the market in 2005 for more than £70 million and became the most expensive private residence ever in the UK.
    The developers failed to find a buyer but claim they had interest from one British, one Russian and one Far East buyer.

    The property sits within 58 acres of landscaped grounds, formal gardens & woodland and offers several ponds with fountains,
    a heated marble driveway, helipad, a lake, tennis court, security lodge & two guest homes.

    The home itself is 52,000 square feet and features over 103 rooms including a bowling alley, two indoor & three outdoor swimming pools,
    panic room, an underground squash court, 50 seat cinema, underground garage for at least 8 limos and 22 bedrooms.

    It was finally sold at the end of 2011

    Check this one out.

    A Russian mogul bought Donald Trump's Palm Beach, Florida mansion for $95M and now wants to tear it down, claiming it is mold ridden.
    He bought the property in 2008 and had only been there once or twice.
    His plans for the property after demolishing the mansion is to develop the 6.26 acre beachfront property into lots.

    Trump purchased the property from disgraced nursing home tycoon Abe Gosman in 2004 for 41.4 M and did extensive renovations to it. Apparently there's great money in owning nursing homes!

    Check out the story here with some good pictures and video of the property.
