Howdy.

Read the message Melinda Gates wrote for her father-in-law who turned his 90th BD.

Melinda Gates

To the other Bill Gates in my life:
I am so indebted to you—for raising my husband, for being a warm and caring grandfather to our children, and for spending the past few decades building the Foundation with us. The world is a whole lot better because you were born ninety years ago. You are an inspiration to me!
Happy birthday.

Hi everyone !
I wanted to know more about that very useful foundation
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_%26_Melinda_Gates_Foundation

The primary aims of the foundation are, globally, to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty, and in America, to expand educational opportunities and access to information technology
what Melinda Gates wrote for his father-in- law is very nice indeed !

Hi Muriel,

Melinda was an employee of Microsoft before she married Gates (a friend of mine was working with her).
I must confess I thought she had been clever enough to seduce Gates and get the jackpot.
This picture above, the nice words, the foundation make me think she is a very nice person.

Great Q&A with Bill Gates Sr. on raising Bill and a life-changing conversation we had while in line for the movies.



How To Raise A Billionaire: An Interview With Bill Gates' Father
What was the Microsoft cofounder and philanthropist like when his own operating system was still in development? His father, Bill Gates Sr., reminisces.
