Can we do it this weekend Moonrise is this weekend I'll leave my thong at home
Good post Skier! Others of us have also said things we probably shouldn't have (me included), as they do not progress the debate.
I feel the debate is pretty much dead. Don't we all know where each other stands and at this point some of our opinions may have been changed and others won't no matter how much harping continues.
When you read through the posts here and on a previous thread, it seems that we're not that far apart in several of the basic ideas. Where some seem to be further apart is in the degree of the downturn and how much damage it will do to RE sales.
There seems to be general agreement that "flippers" are the ones to get hurt the most and long-termers remain in good shape and that a number of people put their homes on the market at overly high prices skewing the market. (Some may have gotten lucky and sold.) And I see agreement in that there may be some temporary overbuilding. I'm gleening this from posts, not any facts I've research because frankly, it doesn't interest me enough to research more than what you guys throw out. And as someone posted, gotta take some of that with a grain of salt.
In recent posts you have come around to stating some of the many variables that enter into the pricing (or should enter into the pricing). This was encouraging to see.
Many of us have learned from these threads BUT I think it's mostly all been said now.
And that is why CCK is our therapist!!! As far as my early posting....is there a menopausal smilie RO? I have actually started taking 3 mg of slow release Melatonin and it is working! Used to get up 3:00 - 4:00 am, now it's 5:00 - 5:45 am!!!! The mental picture of this group gathering is so tender! This is one of our better tangents...don't you agree?
You see, I was lying in bed and couldn't get that silly Bozo icon out of my head, plus the beer-drinking, popcorn-eating computer potatoes waiting for the next blow. So I just had to get up and post the attempt at humor that was running through my head before I forgot it! Went right back to sleep after that though. ;-)
That's why I love this group. Kinda like family
Skier, you are true gentleman or gentlelady. Thank you and if I've written anything to offend you, of course I apologize. It's not my intention EVER.
Rita, agree with you. Sometimes we need to agree to disagree and just see how it shakes out in the end so I'm putting this one to bed as well.
The thread was quite amusing though, wasn't it. Joe started it with popcorn and the punching gloves (saw that before you edited it). I found the puker icon and learned how to find the bozo icon so all in all, it was good for me. Many more cute icons to come from me now that I've found them.
:scratch: ... Could use this
You can count on me for a tangent, err, I mean therapy.
Slide over, this is getting good.
Edit: darn, looks like a group hug when I thought there was going to be a showdown. Where is my beer?
:scratch: I dunno... I group hug could be pretty good... that is if it's all chicks
I am not a cracker chic, as you say.
So you're just a cracker?
Neither was that girl. She was a Sushi Hippy ... not that there's anything wrong with that
Good, but not quite right....try again, please!
:scratch:Hmmmmmm..... How 'bout this...
BINGO, RO!!!!! Not so mad though...maybe a sweating smilie?!
:scratch: Hmmmm.. sweating ... Can't findd sweating
Hey, RO, you need to find a smilie for a hot flash (voice of experience !!) --
