Best Place to Be

Health is one of the most important assets of all and our environment affects our health. This is one reason why Merri and I spend so much time up here on our farm in Ashe county, North Carolina. This area is in the top 20% of clean environments of the U.S. Only 4% of its water supply is at any risk (compared to 91% in Collier County, Florida where we used to live).

I grew up in Multnomah county Oregon which is (along with Collier County) is in the bottom 20%. This is one reason I believe that more and more people will move out of the cities into places like Ashe County.

I have bet my money on this fact and recommend that you do as well.

A recent tip told how you can improve your health, enhance your golf and perhaps earn some extra profits as well.

Just nine tenths of a mile down the road is a farmhouse (with an acre or more of land) for sale, asking $49,500. We believe that the seller will take $45,0000. This is a five bedroom fixer upper, with great potential. We fixed up a similar place you can see at

Merri and I have been cashing in on real estate without even trying. We have accidentally made millions, just buying what we like over the years. Currently we have settled on two places, Ecuador and the High Country of North Carolina.You can see why I recommend investing in this area at

Here is the tip.

Come to one of our health courses this October. Enjoy the glorious colors of the leaf change. We offer Primordial Sound Meditation in September. In October we offer two courses: Dr. John Douillard and Bob Shane-Quantum Medicine. In November, we sponsor Thomas Fischer from Copenhagen.

While here look at some real estate. I'll introduce you to brokers beforehand if you like, so you can line up a schedule. Don't delay though during the leaf change this place is packed and the brokers are busy!

Plus if you golf, get in at least 18 holes. The golf course is nearby and is acclaimed as one of the best mountain courses on the east Coast. Golf Digest Magazine rates it 4.5 out of five stars and says:

“An excellent course and value for a resort … I recommend it highly … Mountain gem … Fun to play, tricky; lots of elevation change … Most enjoyable mountain course I ever played … Great accommodations and staff.”

Triad Golf Magazine at says“The course was built over gently rolling farmland of loamy soil, as perfect for fescue as it once was for prodigious harvests of cabbage. Naked Creek, a tributary of the nearby New River, meanders throughout the layout, a natural irrigation system and a hazard in play on 15 of 18 holes. The routing is just as natural, revolving smoothly within a pastoral, bowl-like topography. This is a great layout and there's a good mix of tee boxes for every player. Five sets, in fact, assuring levels of difficulty for just about everyone. Measuring almost 7,200 yards from the tips, Jefferson Landing provides two sets of tees under 5,000 yards for seniors and ladies. The straightforward design presents broad driving areas and rough of the non-penal variety, which pays dividends beyond a player's stress quotient.”

Come enjoy fall's incredible colors, learn ways to enhance your health, find real estate bargains, enjoy the glories of Autumn, hike, be in the fresh air and golf!

Until then, may all your health, real estate and putts be good.
