Looking for that perfect holiday gift--perhaps for yourself? Well, if you've dreamed of becoming or Lord or Lady, this is your chance. For a mere $49.99, you can buy anywhere from 1 square foot of land  to 1,000 square feet of land in Glencoe Woods, Scotland, and be deemed “lord” or “lady” of Glencoe Woods.

12/05/12 09:21AM
