Back in California

Here is an aerial view of approximately 85 newer homes. Of these, about 20 are for sale with 2 foreclosures. It is sad to see peoples homes have to go back to banks. Prices have come down about 10-15% in the past year.

Now that I am back in California it will be interesting to watch this market, as I am looking to buy within the near future. Shoud I wait awhile, or buy now?

Howard Hates Seals

I bet those damn seals have taken over the harbor since I've been gone.

Somebody turn up the radio and get this par-tay started!

Best photo-shopped picture. Ever. Presidents Bush after Hurricane Katrina.

The $20,000 House

This house recently sold for $20,000. My dad bought it. It is in Iowa within commuting distance to a major city, but still has the feel of very small town life.

This is a view out of the front yard.

Absolutely stunning backyard view. The best view $20,000 can buy.

Howard wonders, "is Iowa the only state with $20,000 houses on the market in a town where one does not need to fear for one's life?" Such questions exhaust him.
