    Blind Luck -- Why the Low Sales Price?

    Blind Luck

    This topic makes me a little annoyed. Not at the OP, because she just wants to promote her breed, but at the breed organizations who haven't stepped up. As gumtree said (much more kindly and...

    I have been in similar situations and the thing I learned is to always put an end date on the offer. This way, no matter what the irritation, you know there will be an end to it soon.

    I think I like B, but with wider dark trims, and in a concession to A, a little more white showing. And I still think the window boxes underneath would be cute. I also like the look of iron, like a...

    It is frustrating to have things like this happen, and I am sorry that you are disabled and have no car. However, it sounds to me like your anger is displaced. Your daughter paid extra for the...

    All of this advice is great. Do a lot of research before you make an offer -- especially the zoning information, the permit info, cost of permits and fees for remodeling, etc. Until you get the...
