    Like the birds, we are nester's in our own right, hunting for the right home and then filling it up with stuff we like to live around.

    What kind of house would you like to live in? I like Mediterranean styles with lots of arch ways and palm trees.

    Here is one with glass, and a different style. I wonder how warm it would stay? Are you thinking like solar?

    When my ship comes in (assuming I'm not waiting for it at the bus station) I know exactly where I'll build my geo-thermal/solar/wind generating home.

    On a south facing slope of a mountain about a mile from this house.

    The South face will be mostly glass while the home will mostly be dug into the side of the mountain.

    The cost for utilities ought to be minor as it will be heating or cooling air that starts at a temperature of about 55 degrees.

    And this is how the housing crisis got so damn bad.

    Wanting what you cant afford. Buying what you cant afford. And then crying foul when you get asked to pay for it.


    just saying.

    I'd like a Mediterranean style house with lots of archways and palm trees, too. But I can't afford it and I don't expect someone else to buy it for me because I think I deserve to be equal to the Joneses.
