After inspecting tens of thousands of homes I couldn't resist this quote

A lot of homes have been spoiled by inferior desecrators.

I like that. Reminds me of something an old broker once chimed up in with during an open CE discussion on housing condition. He said:

A man's home may be his castle but to a lot of people it's just another outhouse.


Good thoughts for a Sunday morning before writing a bunch of reports.

Here is a quote that applies to us all. It is about the JOB.

Many poets are not poets for the same reason many religious men are not saints;
They never succeed in being themselves. They never get around to being the particular poet or the partcular monk they are intended to be by God. They never become the person or artist who is called for by the particular circumstances of their individual lives…….

Thomas Merton “The Seeds of Contemplation”

Hey Benjamen B.

Your perfect mentor is in Montana! If you can stand the snow and cold after living in Louisiana.

Of course the yard was done by a land scraper.
