St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis received a $1,000,000 winning McDonald's Monopoly Scratch Game
in the mail from an anonymous donor. At first the folks at St. Jude's thought it was a hoax, but
the ticket was verified by McDonald's, and Ronald McDonald himself presented the check for $1,000,000
to the hospital. St. Jude's is nationally known for their work healing very ill children. What
a wonderful gift!
After almost 5 years of a nomadic life starting from Bethesda, Maryland, USA,
where I grew up and married my Finnish wife Maija, to Stockholm, Sweden,
for 2 years, then Harpenden, England, for almost two years, now
my wife and I and our two kids have finally settled down in
Turku, Finland. This is the realization of a dream we've shared
since we received our first baby blessing almost ten years ago.
On my salary as a research scientist and with the poor
job prospects of late, it's been really tough and tense at
times, but it seems we're finally into a most settled and contented
time of our family life. Now, we are especially thankful to my
wife's two sisters and their husbands for our most recent
move to a new home of our own, with furnishings of our own.
They took leave from their busy jobs and, with two days of
selfless and tireless work, they got us completely settled
in with all furnishings assembled and in place. I wish them
and you the same fortune and happiness from family and friends
