A Distant Relative Of Elena's?

11 May 2012, 12:55

Last night Elena and I went to the gym to renew her gym membership. After going through the long and complicated process that included the use of two computers and the taking of twelve set of fingerprints, we got a surprise.


One of the gym workers took note of Elena's last name Torello. He mentioned that there was a Torello Ranch over in Half Moon Bay. He also mentioned that that the lat owner of the ranch had a daughter named "Marianna Torello."


I was mystified because my sister is named Marianna. I came home and started doing research on Google and Intellius. Sure enough, a Torello Ranch existed in the past in Half Moon Bay. It did not appear to be active now.


I went to Intellius and started to research Marianna Torello. No such lady could be found. But I did find a Marina C. Torello who lives in Burlingame. I got a post office box. I sent a note to her. I suspect that Elena has found a distant relative.

So dear tax payer, how much is a million Rand? Consider this: A R10.00 note is 128 mm in length. R1 000 000 (One million rand) is therefore 12.8 kilometres of R10 notes – end to end. Read more...
