Since I agreed to help out again as a moderator, I had to dump my ignore list and read everything posted. But now that I've finished up my temporary assignment, I can once again go back to enjoying the luxury of deciding what posts I want to read, and what posts I don't.

Honobob is all about full disclosure. Please don't speak for me. Aren't I the only one posting actual property addresses?

And I could be wrong on this. I did try to search. So...to quote Heidi Klum, "Am I in, or am I out?"

Was it this one?

California home sales, median price in free fall - San Francisco Business Times:


"The Bay Area will feel the pain," Steve Buster, CEO of the Mechanics Bank in Richmond, said in an interview with the Business Times this week.

We feel your pain, honobob. Especially those of us who are staking their retirements on stuff like used tables and chairs. I'm sure prices will pick up.

Lots of big laughs to go with my cheapo wine and pork rinds. By the way, you have to try soft goat cheese on pork rinds-ummm!

Just enjoyed a toasted hot roast beef sandwich with a healthy amount of horseradish cheddar on it and some carmelized onions. The popcorn is just the topper.

And what's up with "popcorn"? Isn't it popped corn? Do we say "devil egg"? No, it's "deviled egg" !

People aren't waiting for their parents to die... some ohana housing has three generations under one roof with all sorts of extended-family-friendly privacy features.

We bought our "dream house" from the estate of the deceased parents, where the trustee (brother-in-law) was living here with his daughter & grandson while trying to ride herd on the two (teenage) beneficiaries and an adult son from the deceased mother's previous marriage. The garage had been used as a mother-in-law apartment. There were also various friends & ex-cellmates living here "temporarily". We haven't really sorted out all the relationships although the neighbors (and the police) had a bunch of stories. Apparently no one knew how to operate a Swiffer, let alone a vacuum cleaner or a toilet snake. But the place had "good bones" under a layer of filth and what submariners call "deferred maintenance".

However we can see that 2400 sq ft and an orchard is going to be a pain to maintain when we're in our 80s. It's in a good school district, but we won't care about that in a couple more years. So if our kid ends up with her own family then there'll probably be some sort of intergenerational home swapping to let the suckers young 'uns enjoy their own dream-house experience. We just have to figure out the correct process to minimize the gift/estate taxes.

Totally went over my head! Trust me, Honobob is not feeling the pain. Celebrating the 15% hono and the 9% SFBayarea!! BBRibs, a little Fat Tire followed by a chilled Grey Goose dry martoonie.....(s)

Your buds at OFHEO........
2. The states with the greatest
rates of appreciation between the
third quarter of 2006 and the third
quarter of 2007 were: Utah (12.9%),
Wyoming (11.8%), Montana (7.7%),
New Mexico (7.4%), and Washington
(7.0%).

No. I'm sure you're referring to Dopey. I'm only confused about who's Grumpy.

I'm pretty sure we have one of those already.

Its certainly all interesting info, but perhaps the same 'rounding' discussion I engaged in during another thread is worthy of consideration?

Excellent! That did it! Thank you to everyone who helped. I found the post by searching on the poster named twaddle as suggested by REWahoo and that's how I found the chart in order to ask the above question
