BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme related):
|My friend that had come into money was telling
me that he was having his family tree researched.
"Yes, and it is quite expensive, it cost $5,000."
"Wow," I replied, "that is expensive!"
"Yes, but it only cost $2,000 to have it looked up. It cost another $3,000 to have it hushed up."
