    Driving across the country, spent most of yesterday going through Kansas. I now understand why people in Kansas do not believe in evolution, with this much inbreeding it doesn't really work around these parts.

    'Morning for chrissakes. Back to work today after a 12 hour bout with ebola. I am enjoying these last couple of half work days. Back to a full schedule next week. With any luck, I'll tear up my knee again this weekend so I can go back on medical leave. :monkey:

    Being under contract for 7-8 more houses before he actually buys one?

    Staying at Polandspring88's place since last night through next Tuesday watching his mutt while he and his GF prance around Iceland. At least I got a cake out of it.

    New HVAC system means nothing if there's no remediation system (if there is in fact high levels of radon present). Might not seem like something that could happen, but it definitely does. I looked at a house with no remediation system, and the radon levels were literally 5-6X the legal limit when the test results came back (water and air). I passed on the (otherwise great) house because the sellers refused to make a deal on putting in remediation systems. It wasn't so much the health aspects that concerned me, so much as having to deal with it inevitably if I wanted to sell the house.

    Not sure where you're looking, but New England is very ledgy, which is where radon is most abundant. Not trying to scare you or steer you away, just passing on some advice from my own experience.

    EDIT - heh (from wiki).....

    not really worried about radon. even if it is present a remediation system is like a grand.

    The air ones are cheap, but water wasn't IIRC (I think $4-5k). Then again all the houses I looked at had well water, so if you're looking at houses with public water that's a different story.

    Our neighbor has two German shepards that were never taught to STFU. "Fortunately" we've reached the point where we hardly notice the barking anymore, sort of like Elwood Blues and his apartment by the train station.

    First thing he should do is hire a landscaper to tend to the yard, because that kind of work is for the common man.

    Why would you ask that? I am not a landscaper. I have an office job. I thought most people on here knew that. Your question does not make any sense.

    I didn't know we lived next to each other.
    Sheps are loud/vocal dogs (especially towards other dogs & mine hate greyhounds for some reason) but, on the other hand, our block is the only one that hasn't had a break-in unlike surrounding streets.
