Fancy a slice of the moon?

I just looked out through my window, and it's almost - but not quite - a full moon. What is it about Earth's natural satellite, that has enchanted mankind since earliest recorded times? I love to see the patterns formed by the moon's geological features. As a small child, I gazed at the moon for hours, through my parents' binoculars, hoping to see signs of the people I was convinced lived there.

If I was a child today, I'd be demanding that my parents bought me a chunk of moon property as a birthday or Christmas present. In fact, I'm seriously contemplating buying a piece for myself. Okay, I know I can't go there and build a house or pitch a tent, but it sounds a pretty cool thing to do. I could have fun telling people I owned a piece of the moon! Also, Lunar International, the world's premier vendor of lunar real estate, donates a portion of every sale to various organizations which promote space exploration and space tourism.

So if you're looking for a fun, novel gift for a loved one, and would like to support space exploration at the same time, why not pay Lunar International a visit, and purchase your own slice of moon? If you do, don't forget to tell me if it really is made of green cheese!

That is SOOO COOOOOOL. My wife's birthday is coming up, and I'm going to buy that lover's package advertised on the home page. That's a very romantic gift. She's gonna love it. Thanks for the awesome tip!
