    Lol, my acerage cost the same as a small bungalow in the city core. It's not about being rich, or hiding from neighbors..its just about enjoying my home. My dogs get to roam around, my wife has beautiful gardens, and we have privacy. However, not so much that I can't have a beer with my neighbors.

    We wanted room for the boys, and privacy. We were originally looking for 15+ acres but ended up finding a great subdivision which is probably better for the boys.

    Cool Story.

    "ISIS' worst nightmare"

    "UAE's first female fighter pilot led airstrike against ISIS"

    (CNN) -- Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri may be ISIS' worst nightmare.

    The first female fighter pilot in the United Arab Emirates, she led a strike mission this week against the terror group, that country's ambassador to the United States said Thursday.

    "She is (a) fully qualified, highly trained, combat ready pilot, and she led the mission," Yousef Al Otaiba told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

    The UAE has joined the United States and a handful of other Arab nations in conducting airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.

    This summer, the group declared the establishment of a "caliphate," an Islamic state stretching across the territory it has conquered. It maintains strict rules for women, who are lashed for infractions such as not being fully covered.

    Al Otaiba said the campaign against ISIS basically boils down to the question of what type of society one wants.

    "It's important for us -- moderate Arabs, moderate Muslims -- to step up and say this is a threat against us. This is more of a threat against us than it is against you. This is not just a threat to our countries. This is a threat to our way of life," the ambassador told MSNBC.

    CNN spoke to Al Mansouri earlier this year about her work. She had wanted to be a fighter pilot since she finished high school, but had to wait until women were allowed.

    "At that time, the doors were not open for females to be pilots. So I had to wait almost 10 years for the decision to be taken," Al Mansouri said.

    She stressed there's no difference between men and women when it comes to defending their country.

    "We are in a hot area so that we have to prepare every citizen," Al Mansouri said. "Of course, everybody is responsible of defending their country -- male or female. When the time will come, everybody will jump in."

    Not trying to be an ass. I've never heard this term used this way before - what does it mean? Building on a large part of land? Does it refer to an amount of land over and above like 5 acres?

    Really?

    I've heard it used to describe a plot of land usually equating to more than one acre... basically meaning not on a tiny city plot

    Oh please, you are likely the closest to 1% of all us. Not that there is anything wrong with being successful.

    Ha! Yes, really :)

    I mean, I know what an acre is. I've just never heard anyone say, "Oh yea, I live on an acreage" or "I'm buying an acreage".

    Given the now explain definitely though, we live on an acreage. Sounds fancy for a couple of non-1%er's.

    Its less to mow though right!

    We are nearly at a deal for the 100 acre property just down the road from my house. There is a 4 acre "estate" with the home and out buildings and the rest is agricultural...although the additional 96 acres isn't worth much more than a typical lot outside of the city center in Halifax.

    Heck you can buy 50 acres within 30-45 minutes of Halifax for $100,000 or less.
