I have had to change a couple of my settings; I got my first spam on the blog. How weird is that? Now people who leave a comment have to complete the word verification thingy majig. Why would people waste their time setting up spam for blogs, all it is just irritating and I doubt they get any business this way. Thanks to Marie who explained how to fix it. I truly appreciate it!
We did not end up buying the house with the pool, we had an inspector go through the house and he found several safety issues that the owners were not willing to correct (even though we were willing to meet them halfway). Oh well, I wasn't sure I wanted to take care of a pool anyway. Nevertheless, we are now house hunting again. It seems as though people put their house on the market just to see what they can get, not because they are seriously trying to sell their homes. I spent the entire holiday weekend negotiating on another house and you would not believe what people want (or don’t want) when they sell their homes. Oh well, as my mom used to tell me, the world would get pretty boring if we all thought alike.
