How much is Scrooge McDuck's net worth?

Hello and welcome to JimBos.Online if you like my blog please subscribe on the homepage link.  You can visit my eBay store "Stirred2generosity"  for the full line up of items offered there.

I am also sharing with you my new Bonanza shop JimBos_Online.

Thank- you for visiting, today.

Okay, all you Disney fans how hardcore are you? What is Scrooge McDuck's net worth?  Wait, wait who is Scrooge McDuck?  He is an anthropomorphic Pekin duck who was created in 1947 by Carl Barks who was work for hire of Walt Disney.

Scrooge McDuck is the wealthy uncle of Donald Duck whose estimated net worth is somewhere around 27 trillion dollars.   Which of course is absurd, to say the least since adding up all of 2000, billionaires net worth is "only" $8.7 trillion. How could a cartoon character be worth $27 trillion?

That is very easy to figure out. It is all made up just like all cartoons are.
But here is an interesting fact it was sometime back in the year 1993 when at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. that I acquired some real spendable cash that had all of the attributes and outward traits "anthropomorphic" of currency.

There is that word again. It means something that is not human but is made out to be human like in its ways and emotions and motion.

That is what Disney dollars did to the money of America in that the money was given in trade dollar for dollar.  And could be spent like USD dollars at Disney World and Disney Land.  Take a look at the collectible Disney Dollars in my collection.

Yes, it is true you can have your very own link to the fortunes of Scrooge McDuck and the Disney World Disney Dollar collectors. 

Before closing today's post let me tell you about this really neat Black velvet art painting that is available and ready for your offers. 

Elder man with white hair, smoking a pipe and wearing a hat. He could be Chinese, Mexican or Asian I tried to pinpoint it with the hat style but could not find a hat similar online. His wisp of beard makes me think Chinese.  This is very nice retro guessing about the mid-1960s or 1970s.  The gold color frame is 13 1/2" inch wide and the height is 18 3/4 inch.

Shop often and share my blog, Until next time this is JimBo' saying

Better with age...I'm talking about antiques!

 Hi, my name is Jim Brookins known by many as Jimbo’. Welcome to Jimbos.Online blogger spot, and all of the neat items you can find here.

 Back in 2001, I found an interest in Vintage, Antique, Mid-Century and Modern pieces for my personal use. I also enjoyed auctions and bought sometimes in bulk. Running out of space I began selling in the local Antique Mall. Later with two business partners, we opened an Antique store. I still have the sign that was on the door here is a picture of it. But it’s a long story I won’t bore you with details. Other than it was named after Walter, Tommy, and yours truly JimBo'.
WallyTomBo's Antiques L.L.C.

Just to say the store is now closed and I’m on my own having a blast selling now online to people just like you who enjoy great deals.
I have moved all of my personal inventory into a storage building. Now almost ten years after WallyTomBos Antiques closed its doors all of those vintage items are being offered for sale. Guess what the antique industry has over the new item industry? Time and age are a perquisite, the longer the items are around the more vintage they become. Kind of like a good wine in a wooden barrel, it gets better with age.

Another neat thing for me as it is for you is this. It is a treasure hunt for both. I do not recall what is in all of those boxes.   Old tools and oil cans. Small shovels and wrenches, wood plans, draw shaves, bit and brace. Little stubby screwdrivers by Craftsman Stanley, Snap-on.

Somewhere within boxes of stored items, there it is it the one thing you have wanted. You may need it for yourself or a gift for that special person or persons in your life. So I have done my best to research, describe and photograph it for you.

 Hey, we both need money it’s a fact of life at the same time-saving money is a great thing to do, too. This is where shopping at my site is this difference. Making reasonable offers isn’t going to hurt my feelings. Giving you a great deal is my goal. Don't forget to subscribe, enter your email on Jimbo's.Online home page. You will not get spammed from me. I hardly have time to make a post on the blog and empty boxes. What good is spam anyhow? Never cared for the canned meats anyway.  

 Shipping rates are difficult to reduce since I don’t own the airplanes and trucks. Speaking of shipping. I have nearly 4 decades of experience providing quality customer service. Package handling is so important to me and my packing of your item is with great care. There is nothing worse than opening a long-awaited treasure only to find it damaged. You will be happy to purchase high-quality items as described. To bring back wonderful memories of the past and delight to your lifestyle.

 Send me any question you have. Then jump right in with a bag, well, take the cart instead and fill it up. Today is your day for fun. 
 Thanks for dropping in. JimBo’

What did I THINK? Absolutely one very informative book. The China Study

I wanted to share this inside story with you. While it has nothing to do with eBay Vintage and Etsy Antique items my main subject on this blog. By the way, click Etsy and save 10% off your selection of items. My eBay shop Stirred2Genreosity where you can make offers on most any of the items. (hint put your email in the slot at the top of the page, promise I will not see it. Don't worry I am retired and don't have time to spam.) Back to today's blog, it is all about diet and what we put into our God-given body. We laugh and make jokes saying "you are what you eat." Do you really believe that? It is the truth, so just what is it you are eating. I'm not talking about just if you love meat and have to have it. Or if you go totally raw foods or vegetables and none other. And can you imagine there is even talk about 3D printing food? "it converts proteins from algae, beet leaves or insects into tasty products. " Sounds like what I want to eat? No Thanks. The thought that ones "nutrition" could be at stake concerns me when looking at this option. God intended that our food is enriched by the soil, fresh air, sun light and rain along with other qualities nature offers. Is life moving so fast for people that real food and it's a benefit to the human body has to be made in a copy machine? We have to think of health and the ramifications of long term use of food from a copier. If this is a desire for the masses then more power to them, I'll grow from seed, harvest, prepare and cook my food. You would be doing yourself a super big favor to read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, Thomas M. Campbell II And I am not selling my copy. I have in fact bought copies to give away to some of my co-workers when I was employed. (now Retired) What did I THINK? Absolutely one very informative book on diet and health, backed by untold numbers of reports and years, and years of study and research. Long ago when I began my journey on gaining control of bad health with high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. My doctor put me on pills for all of those things. He then told me to lose weight as well. I asked him for alternative options for the pills. Seeking to go with a "natural" approach whatever that might be? He told me that there wasn't anything that could be done from a natural point of view. Well, I did not like that answer. However, I began taking the prescribed medication. But did not like that I would need to take this from then on. I found out that blood pressure medication was causing another health issue. Right at this moment, I cannot pinpoint it other than it was kidney related. This information was given to me by my father-n- law who is a Homeopathic doctor (now gone home with The Lord). At his suggestions, I stopped taking it. I might add that my weight was around 335 pounds. I began to research on the internet for people who had similar health issues as mine. The bottom line was that I changed from a meat eater to vegetarian. Then dropped weight, 117 lbs over the next 2 to 3 years by eating a plant-based diet of fruit and vegetables. By eating my fiber and reducing processed foods. Replacing them with real food. I was in a lifestyle change for the better. After visiting the doctor for a checkup, he found the weight loss fantastic and the high blood pressure was gone along with diabetes. He said I don't know what you are doing but keep on doing it. As I read "The China Study" I found many of my personal researching was similar to the content of the book. This made me glad. The part that made me sad was just how bad the system is. The system of whom Americans for years and years have depended on. Government and food industries. Nutritional "research" that we trusted now finds large gaping holes of distrust. Industrial giants whose motive is to destroy from within. I cannot say enough about this book. Everyone owes it to themselves to read this book. Read it with an open mind. it will change your life. See my GoodReads on other books that I read and have reviews on. The China Study influenced a lot of my gardening methods, too! Enter your email address above and you will get email updates of my most recent blog post and if any new listings. eBay and Etsy items. God Bless you!
