Subject: Re: If money were no object...
Hi Ziners, Well, I can't imagine unlimited money, so I'd buy a few places in France and Italy.

A small house in the hills back of Menton, France. Then one of the grand old 19th century houses in Chiavari, with a yard full of exotic plants and trees.

Farther south I'd like a flat in one of the 17th century baroque buildings in Lecce, down in Puglia.

For the coldest part of the winter I'd need a small hideaway in the Southern part of Sicily's coast.

There, that's 5 places, I think I'd be satisfied. And you all can take turns visiting me or using whichever house is empty at the moment.

Seriously, the real estate prices in those places look good against the prices in and around San Francisco.
