During the early 1980’s, a retired British couple feared that a nuclear holocaust was imminent. They determined they would find the most reasonable place to live on earth, one with a high standard of living, freedom, and unlikely to be a nuclear target.

When the clergyman received the card, he could not believe where they had moved: the Falkland Islands. That very day, newspapers around the world carried the story: England and Argentina were at war over the Falkland Islands!
