Took a ride out to an old monastery near Sparta Wisconsin yesterday. This was always a very small place, only 3 monks were there recently. Monks make their own living and this particular monastery did that by operating an office supply website, "LaserMonks". Things were going well, business was booming.
Unfortunately, after the economic crash after 2008, and the rise
of places like Amazon.com, their business went into the dumpster
and the monastery had to close. The monks transferred to other
monasteries around the world and the former buildings are up for sale.
If only I had a couple of million to spare...
