In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

How Big is Walmart?

(From a friend)

This should boggle your mind .


1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day

(March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco

+ K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people and is the largest private employer.. And most can't speak English

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the World.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger & Safeway combined, and

keep in mind they did this in only 15 years.

8. During this same period, 31 Supermarket chains sought bankruptcy (including Winn-Dixie).

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world..

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are

Super Centers ; this is 1,000 more than it had 5 years ago.

11 This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at a

Wal-Mart store. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart

Let Wal-Mart bail out Wall Street.

Better yet .. . . let them run the damn Government!
