    Underneath it all, well several things, how come we never sit around the dinner table anyways and just have a nice meal? How come we never understand what does the inner most damange is ourselves vs. Mother nature? How come we sit here in our tiny houses meanwhile the goverment gets all of our money, how come the earth is flat? :)

    How come we lost our own projects when we know, if by responsibility first, we end up swallowing ourselves in a cave of sound, as our voices, hit inside our own head, only focusing on what matters?

    Hey folks, after my software download on my moto edge plus, I tried the security for fingerprint scanner, over a few times with different fingers, and still question is where is the fingerprint scanner on the device? I do not want to take off my ottercase every time I log in to it.

    UGH! :mad:

    I was checking Joy Noelle's Whistle battery status while it was charging, and thought I'd scroll the map for an aerial view of a nearby house that's for sale. And then I saw...it!

    Do you see it? The EMPTY LOT with a telltale black fence around it? Yet another perfectly nice, appropriately-sized house bulldozed so a stupid McMansion can go up in its place. :mad:

    Makes my resolve to NEVER sell my house even stronger... UGH!

    Change is often difficult to accept. I've seen a number of older buildings with cool architecture and history raized to make way for new construction. You don't see it so much with housing in my area for there is lots of choice land to be developed. The down town metropolis real-estate is a different matter. There is a finite area that is prime and to repurpose it makes sense though I don't necessarily like it. I suspect it is the same with your neighborhood. It is choice and to repurpose it is desirable though sad. I would think the changes would make your property value increase.

    No kidding! Tiny--with a nice, usable yard, unlike those McMansions that use up about 80% of the property. I mean, really, who NEEDS ten bathrooms?!

    This bothers me when buildings with historical significance are razed, like for offices or shopping. I'm happy that some of my favorite buildings, like the former Bullock's Wilshire, are now protected--they've been designated historical sites or something.

    I know I've said all this before, but my old block [in Pasadena] was bought up by, and bulldozed by, Caltech, to make way for student apartments. Our beautiful, turn-of-the-century Craftsman house fell. My childhood neighbor [next door on the north side] bought the turn-of-the-century Victorian on the other side of my house and had it moved to nearby Altadena. It's called Yale House; our neighbor originally was the widowed Mrs Yale. He had it restored to its original condition. It's beautiful, just as I remember it from childhood...but smaller... :thinking:

    Yeah, we don't have to like it, but I guess we have to accept it. :rolleyes:
    Yes, Arcadia is a highly regarded city; its public school system is ranked in the top 1% nationwide. And there's only so much land...so wrecking balls are all too common. Yes, its desirability definitely impacts our property values, but for someone like me, who will never sell, it really doesn't matter.

    Last week I showed my daughter a house for sale two blocks down, and she loved it! :D But...not its $3M price tag. :(

    Speaking of changes in the city, we always drive due north, next door to the grocery store, my family and myself been extrenely religious shopping with, (Well as time passed on, made a few close friends who are now family to me.) So about like a few miles from my residency, one of our neighbros, whose house burnt down a year sago, he decided to put a massive "Hey I want to make me a log cabin, make myself a better wish, besides my kids will love it down the line, give it a nice fresh wood smell to it et all."

    Now we would not mind as much, but come now. It sticks pretty much in the middle of no wherese ville at all, what the hell where they thinking of putting this massive 5.9 trillion dollar house in the middle of no where? Seriously gee, someone must be a handsome young doctor, who is Asian, who never age lol :)

    Addendum to my earlier reply: here's some info about Yale House, and some pics of Bullocks Wilshire.

    They both hold great memories for me. I'm very thankful they're both here to stay! :)
