Not really. Those estate sale people google everything and mark it up at least 15%-25%. Then when everything is cheaper on Sunday, they are still making money.
I went to an estate sale one time, they even had the crap in the pantry mar...

Does anyone know exactly which part of the intersection is closed and the times? I have a feeling it would be the entire weekend (day and night) but was just wondering if any of the intersection would be passable.
I pulled by their yesterday and DPW was blocking the right lane. Really caused a C...

Just wanted to address your question. While I could use iTunes for this, the App provides access to folders with media stored as well. This way, I don't have to keep the 200-300 movies and countless hours of TV shows stored within my iTunes library. Also, some TV shows ...

[quote]This 12' (or God forbid 14') ceiling trend drives me bat shite crazy. It adds very little unless it's in a feature foyer or living room setting. Houses with 12/14' ceilings throughout just seem to sterile and uncomfortably formal to me.

I think it mainly depends on the neighborhood and the comps as people have said. If you are in an old neighborhood, and they are all similar to that, then you would probably be OK.
If you do end up buying something with 8' ceilings, take out light fixtures, fans, etc. in the main living areas of...

If it is empty, a Slingbox would work. It controls the cable box on the end, which would mean if you were using it at home, anyone viewing it at the condo would be watching what you had on. That does require a pretty robust internet connection, as you would most likely be uploading HD video to strea...

If you Charter, you should be able to login and watch it via the WatchESPN app, online or through an Apple TV, Roku, etc.
That is at least how I understand their FAQs

Thats the point in the supply vs demand thing. If rates rise to 2.5X, that entices more drivers out to the road, and brings the rates back down. I am not sure yet how fast that process wor...
