Hey George Soros, Buy Us A Farm!

I stumbled upon this chart with the fifty largest charitable hedge funds on Wall Street. Mr. Soros, I picked you out of the line-up just because I recognized your name from some hazy memories of CNN news reports. I also hear you are a fellow Magyar. It looks like you are sitting on a rather large foundation, like one pillar in the center of the Acropolis. We have a suggestion for a tiny fraction of that robust portfolio.

Buy us a farm. Nothing fancy, mind you. It could even lack electricity and running water. The acreage can be a minimum of three open acres, but woods, a stream, and a couple of hills to build a hobbit house into would be ideal.

We’d love to raise goats or maybe a few cows so the community can become healthier through real milk. Jeff is pretty adept at speaking chicken, so there will be some fowl running around the place. Two mules are a must. I love gardening. You really haven’t lived until you have eaten a freshly picked baby green salad with sun-warmed yellow peppers!

It wouldn’t be just us living there, either. We plan on having at least one other couple/single mom/family move in. More hands make light work. I could tutor/homeschool any children on our property.

The return for your investment is to know that a small patch of God’s earth is very, very well tended. We will get off the grid as much as possible with our electrical/petroleum usage. You are also allowed to drop in at any time (with a modicum of notice) to see how the land and the people fare. You may eat at our table, drink from the spring or well, sleep in a guest room, or snooze in a hammock. I might even knit you a pair of socks for winter every year.

You seem interested in helping out the world. So, how about relocating some overly-educated landless peasants?

    Love it! I would love to live like that especially with another like minded family nearby. Working together as a community would be dream come true.

    Yes, a dream that someday will be real!

    Sorry to not respond sooner, your comment got buried in the Spam folder.

    Yep, my great-grandfather emigrated here just before WWI. My maiden name was a common Hungarian last name. 🙂

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
