I just liked this tree.
Typing away on my laptop, er, excuseme, my notebook. Two doctors this week gave me a clean bill of health, or natural deficiencies for a man of my age. The big move this week end. The way I see it, even if our house loses its value, our mortgage will be like a rental payment which is actually an investment. We have become so accustomed to paying a certain amount every month that paying the same amount will matter little whatever the value of the house. And we love it.
