Insane!  You guys weren't kidding about him turning everything to gold.  Of course, it does say he hasn't made his money back yet on his investment...

He has apparently hired a publicist, because I recently received a full-blown press kit about Jones and the Christmas Story house...

He hasn't made money directly from the house itself, but he has had increased sales from the news generated by it - to the tune of about 80 Gs a year after expenses.

Yes he did hire a publicist, I thought it was weird at the time, but I stopped questioning his genius long ago.  Bone is right.  All this is to further the leg lamp sales, plus cash in on the Christmas Story nostalgia.  The house could be sold to some Christmas Story fanatic if cash is not rolling in - or even to the city of Columbus.   The house has gotten enough exposure in the national media (So has his Leg Lamps - you saw the prices in the news story right?)  I'm sure it is sitting on a uranium mine and Brian Jones is just about to win the SuperBall Lotto.

I am sure everything will be successful.......

I never begrudge another man's success. Good on Brian Jones. Someone has to be the rich  merchant while others have to be James Bond. I'll be James Bond thank you.

Of course I could use a little extra cash - Aston Martins  don't come cheap.

The G.R. Press ran a big article on the Christmas Story house last week that included links to both of his web-sites.  Good Lord.
