The Only Guaranteed Hedge Fund with 100% Return

Bealtaine Cottage willow hedgeAs the world banks teeter on the brink of disaster and pension funds across the globe are held hostage to fortune, hedge fund managers duck and dive between commodities that promise the best return.

Bealtaine Cottage vegetablesFood is one of the biggest commodities.

Billions of dollars are gambled and hedged from one shipment of food to another.

Funny, isn’t it?

Am I the first to openly admit this farcical nonsense?

So, what, exactly is a Hedge Fund?

  1. Fabulous post Colette.

    Fab images too. What is that strange and beautiful root that looks like a couple dancing on your window ledge?
    Ah, yes, the two legged parsnip!
    That fabulous vegetable would have been rejected by the supermarket for blatant non-conformity!
    Bright Blessings to you

  2. Colette,
    Well said.
    At one time in my life in the 70’s I had a years supply of food and products for my family of 5 in my basement. My house had a small yard and what I couldn’t grow I got from small farmers. What a feeling of security, I am striving to do that again this year. Imagine if that happened world wide. Big huge supermarkets would have to change or go out of business, small farmers would make a living wage and people would feel secure.
    I Just love your pictures today, well everyday but today with the Daffs, plums and all the other bushes, they were beautiful..
    My best to you and your wonderful animal friends.
    This is something that I’ve been encouraging now for some time…for everyone to allocate an area of their home for use as a pantry. You are so right about the supermarkets and their insidious grip on the people. A pantry can be very empowering, for as you say people will be more inclined to grow, make and store food…that is the way to go: self-empowerment!
    Blessings from Bealtaine Cottage
