Some of the responses here smell like people live in very low cost of living areas. 

When one lives in an area where apples are priced from $1-3, buying the $1 apple doesn't sound too bad to them.  Only on the internet do they encounter people who have apples available to them for $0.10.  And in some cases, those people paying $0.10 love to tell them how stupid they are for paying a dollar.

I live in North Texas.  I could have chosen to spend as much on a house as any bank would lend me, but I chose not to.  Plenty of houses in the 500,000 to 1 million price range around.

So you have apples that range from $0.10 to $1.25?

And where are you going to want to be if you run a fruit stand?

With the more expensive and variety of fruit. You can outsource help in neighboring areas to help run the more inexpensive fruit stands.  You cannot outsource the other lifestyle.


At Alim, I didn't take your comment as smug.  I actually laughed when you mentioned an occasional foray into the land of coconuts and bananas. 

When read literally, it just sounds so funny.  :)

hopefully the coconuts are delivered by African swallows. 

(last statement will be a reach, but someone might get it)

The amazing thing about all these Monty Python references is that we did watch "Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail" during our visit there. Perhaps you guys should join us for the next one!
