Not wanted to write a ton of cliches but I think the best things in life cannot be bought with money.

Memories are a great treasure, some of the happiest are with friends laughing uncontrollably. First kisses, a comforting hand wiping away a tear, passing your driving test, graduating from uni.

Regardless of what you think may happen after death, I am hoping to keep my memories. So I think that the meaning of life is to create as many good ones as possible.

Marshmallows are definitely in there somewhere.

Buying something - I think my camera goes a long way as it helps preserve those memories. Either that or my ipod :)

Men are like toilets. Either vacant, engaged or full of sh1t :)

i second that!

you remind me of the times im with a childhood girlfriend of mine... we giggle all night, cackle, guffaw, and just laugh ourselves silly whenever we meet, which is only a few times a year. but that is good enough for patching up holes in the soul until we meet again. yep, money can't buy that!

Baron, I'm tempted to agree with you on some days.

The best thing that money can buy for me are chocolates, a bottle of Sheridan's and a good massage.

What's interesting to me here is that I think every post so far is non material. You have put me to shame, I did not realize it at the time but my initial post was about locating and "purchasing" the best thing in existence. Now I don’t think I am an overly materialistic person but perhaps my subconscious is trying to tell me otherwise. Some of you are aware of my rag's to (relative) riches back ground, I can only surmise the more materialistic side of my nature may be attributed to this. It has only been five years since my life changed in this regard, perhaps I am adjusting badly. So what I have gained from this post is an insight into my own subconscious nature.
This is good. I will do something about it first thing Monday morning !

Your right though, the best things in life are free.
They always where.

So for me, in hind site. Its health, my puppy and my wife, all of which I already have.
So simple, search over.

There's no such thing as 'best thing'. It all maya, an illusion. :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
