    Kenn- did you just spam yourself? I'm pretty sure the fact that I have read that once is not a manifestation of my deja vu.

    Does it ever make you mad that your parents aren't wealthy? It does me, or at least made some better decisions. There's 2 lake lots my dad has told me about and was like "The guy told me one time he'd take $5,000 for that lot, but I thought that was a little high", Really dad? That lot's worth at least 50-60 large right now. Same way with a house on the river, dirt cheap, but he didn't want to go out on a limb.
    GOTD: No DeLorean time machine.
    way before my time, my grandfather owned quite a bit of stock in IBM. apparently, enough that he'd be a made man now if he was still alive (a lot can happen in 2 generations, but i'd like to believe there would be a little trickle-down). instead, he bought my grandmother a house. random factoid: he was one of the first members of the "mile-high club."

    My great grandfather owned most of the town where I grew up, way on up in the hundreds of acres. What he didn't own, the great grandfather on the other side owned. What's left for me? 20 acres that will get split between my brother and me, but it is some righteous waterfront. The bad part is that it's the original "homeplace" land, so it will never be sold, therefore its value is moot.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

That make any sense?

    ahh, a homestead. we have one of those, by i'm a girl and it's owned by my maternal grandparents, so i'll never see ownership (i'm born of hillbillies). so i suppose it's nice that the intent is to keep it in the family, at least we can go up there and hangout.

    Yeah, I guess homestead is more easily translated to Yankee.
