On this day in 1803, history’s biggest real estate deal, the Louisiana Purchase was finalized. France signed over 828,000 square miles of land to the U.S. for $15 million, or about 3 cents an acre.
- The deal was handled by the “19th Century Real Estate Co.”
And speaking of getting things for “a steal”… You can still get your copy (copies!) of “The Best of Dick Purtan & Purtan’s People - Vol. 10” for just $19.99! It benefits Operation Homefront and Honor Flight: The Legacy Project, two outstanding Michigan Military charities that help veterans and their families, both past and present. To order the greatest stocking stuffer since Joe Namath slipped into a pair of pantyhose, just click on the blue CD ad on this website! It’s easy, affordable and full of 40 of my favorite cuts from my last few years on the air!
Have a great day, I’ll see you back here Wednesday… now start shopping!
