Bob and Trish Duggan are the proud new owners of a pretty spectacular 142-acre parcel in California near Los Gatos, and we can't wait to find out what they plan to do with it.

The Duggans are Scientology's richest couple, and our readers are very familiar with them. In January, we wrote about the Duggans receiving their latest trophy for their donations to the International Association of Scientologists. A new "status" had to be invented for them because they've given so much more than anyone else in church history. This time, they were dubbed "Diamond Invictus," and we estimated that it was for donating about $70 million — and that's not counting the millions more the couple has given for numerous Scientology building projects around the world.

But Bob and Trish can afford it. According to Forbes, Bob is worth $3.2 billion and is the 638th richest man in the world. He built that fortune largely on the spectacular stock market success of a cancer drug he helped bring to market.
