Where the F is Moldova? According to Wikipedia, Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova (Moldovan/Romanian: Republica Moldova pronounced [reˈpublika molˈdova]) is a landlocked state in Eastern Europe located between Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. It declared itself an independent state with the same boundaries as the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1991 as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
Why is this important to you and me? I will tell you why. Because 2, not 1, but 2 people from Moldova found http://www.daisypatchfarm.com this week. Ok, that completely FASCINATES me. I have never heard of the country (sorry, but I STUNK at Geography. It involved memorization and I am bad at that. Keith has this game from his childhood called Match II where little country flags on tiles are flipped over so you can’t see the flags. Flip one, then another. Do they match? No. Flip them back. Flip the next one, OH, it matched one you flipped earlier, where was that? Here? Yes. Whomever flips the most tiles, wins. I almost NEVER match any. I no longer play it with him. I stink at it that badly. I just asked him, he hadn’t heard of Moldova either.)
This is very cool to me. Moldova. Thanks to Wikipedia, I discovered that Moldova has rich agricultural regions due to warm Summers and mild Winters. Perhaps a Moldovian homesteader has discovered the bliss that is DaisyPatch farm and is coming here to perform agricultural research? Is it possible that I have mentioned something in a previous post that has offended the Moldovian government and I am under watch (which would be more concerning if they were still part of the Soviet government, although I know it is no longer communist.) Perhaps a Moldovian homesteader planning on raising chickens has decided to do some research and my SEO (search engine optimization) is so phenomenal, they found themselves here.
It’s probably an accident and they were searching “ratty underwear“ on the web and ended up on my blog. Because that is my most popular post. (Except the one where someone stole a photo off my blog, posted it on another site, claimed it as theirs and everyone pounced on the thief and called him out. THAT was my most popular post.)
So, let me roll out the red carpet and welcome the great citizens of Moldova to the DaisyPatch. Please enjoy your visit. Thank you, come again.
