Victorians had large houses with lots of small rooms. Even the bedrooms were small. In the winter they only lived in a small part of the house because it was impossible to heat the entire house.

They should have bought(made) more candles.

He is also the first to buy a million dollar house, something I still can't quite grasp.

In the middle-class suburban neighborhood where my aunt lives in northern CA, a 1,200 SqFt home goes for $1 mil. Fortunately, they bought in the 80's when prices were much more reasonable.

The first house I owned was the opposite. It was built in the 1920's in a location where property taxes were based on the number of rooms in the house. The result was a few very nicely-sized rooms and very little in the way of closets (which were counted as rooms for tax purposes).

It's good to hear that the cancer has not spread, MrV. Hopefully, it will be able to be fully addressed.

I've endured what is probably the most stressful, scariest past few weeks ...

Recently retired, I went to the doc for a delayed physical: blood work showed a high PSA.

Met with urologist: he scheduted MRI which showed prostate cancer.



My 65 year old brother was diagnosed with exactly the same thing in April. No spread. His doctors seem to be yawning because they can hardly stay awake at this diagnosis. There's like 14 different ways to cure this now, pick one. It's extremely slow moving a lot of men who dropped dead in their 80s of something else have had prostate cancer for decades and didn't even know it. They gave him hormone treatment that keeps it at bay for about a year-and-a-half and they're looking at on the spot radiation treatment next spring. So my advice to you is if you have to worry do it in slow motion.

My house was built in the mid eighteen hundreds and has no closets at all. All closets here were added later. They had no need for closets because all your clothes were kept in trunks and dressers because of the moth problem.

Wow, that is an old house. If I remember correctly that area wasn't really settled into until around 1825.

If you had a lot of syrup on the French toast, it seems like an understandable result with that combination.

Saw my eye doctor for the first time in 5 years yesterday. He says I have cataracts. I asked if it was serious, and when will it become serious. He had no answer for when it would become serious. He gave me a prescription for stronger glasses. I asked him if my current eyeglasses are expired because he gave me a new prescription and if I could still drive to the next town to fill the prescription. The DMV just put on my license that I need to wear glasses when I drive. He said the DMV just tests for distance that you can see out the window. I exclaimed that I can't read my speedometer without glasses, but I can see out the window OK. He said the DMV doesn't test if you can read your speedometer. He said my glasses help me to keep 20/40 vision. I used to have fantastic vision until my mid-40's, then it got worse month after month, year after year. Now everything is blurry within arms' length of me.
Sometimes I walk out my door with the wrong glasses on and drive with my dollar store 1.75X reading glasses on halfway down my nose so I can read my speedometer but I have a regular view above the glasses out the window. But those are just short trips to the store.
My Parking Assist wasn't working yesterday and I didn't notice until after I had backed up. I later rubbed my fingers over the sensors on the back bumper to clean them up a little and the Parking Assist worked again.

My theory is that if you have a hard time seeing in the distance you should just driver faster so the objects get closer quicker. If you have a hard time seeing objects up close, just drive in reverse.

My house was built in 1854. When it was bought we got the abstract that was about half an inch thick that lists all the previous owners and all the previous surveys on the property. They don't give those to you anymore when you buy a house

It would be nice to have when first buying the house, I agree, but public record searches will also reveal lots of the information.

I sold my parents house a couple years ago it was built in 1736 it had an addition in 1799.
My grandparents bought the house with a barn and 60 acres in 1920 for$3000.
The people who bought it put it on farmhouse fixer on hgtv network. It was the first episode this year.

My family bought it in 1960, I bought it from my dad and in 1984. The intent was to fix it up and rent it out but I ended up moving in here permanently around 2,000 and my wife was fine with that. Now we can see each other whenever we want and not be forced to see each other when we don't want. Most guys I know can't do that because they are totally dependent on their wives to do the laundry, the cleaning, the cooking, and the wiping of their noses for them. I have no idea what my wife does for most of her day and she surely doesn't care what I do. A few months ago she took a 3-day trip back east I didn't even know about it till she came back. Perfect..

As a one-time joke, I concede that this was funny; I did laugh out loud. However, if this newly created thread had been titled "I Just Had Diarrhea" or "My Urgent Bowel Movement," then the thread would not have been allowed. We don't want other members posting on this topic whilst citing mcallister3200's post as a precedent.

So, unless something unusual (like a gold nugget or green chip) pops out your butt, I am politely asking the forum: please do not post about your bowel movements.

Well it could just have been from over hydrating (very important to keep hydrated while gambling), and I was just relaying personal happenings so things that happened yesterday.

Entirely unrelated events other than they happened yesterday you see. Thereís also this game I was thinking of, called Jump to Conclusions, and thereís this floormat with conclusions you can jump to...

I can't even imagine how a house built in the 1700's is even habitable. My house was built in 1994, and that is considered old in my neighborhood.

There are a lot of old colonial houses in New England.

Over time electricity and plumbing have been added, as well as insulation, better windows and doors, and updates to the interior.

It just takes money: what price historical preservation?

All that stuff was added to my house in 1940 which was only 20 years before we bought it in 1960. Now it's 80 years ago and stuff needs to be done again. There's no end to the stuff that needs to be done around here. Keeps me busy.

As Mr V said it was renovated many times over the years. But until the 1940s there was no running water and the only heat was a wood stove.It was a great house to grow up in, there was a secret room behind a fireplace and a trap door in the floor that had a passageway that came out in the barn.We were told it was for escaping from Indian attacks.

No, it is kind of an inside joke. My wife and her best friend (one of my ex-girlfriends) are very close. At any time I may be out with one or both of them so both are considered my wives. At times all three of us have lived together and travelled the world together.

In all likelihood it was built so they can go from the house to the barn without going outdoors in the winter. It was known in those days that in a bad snow storm you can get lost from the house to the barn and die of exposure. Some people had a rope that went from the house to the barn for you to hang on to so you wouldn't get lost.

The secret room and passageway likely served as a hideout from revenue collectors in tight years.

I knew a few places that had tunnels or passageways out to the barns but ours was through a hidden trap door so I donít really think it was for the winter weather

When my sister bought her house, they found a secret room and got all excited thinking it was part of the Underground Railroad. Then she found out the house wasn't built until 1870 so they concluded it was most likely a root cellar that just got closed up and forgotten about over the years. From what she has found out, the house was with the original family until the early 50s, sold again in 1963 to the family she bought it from about 20 years ago. It was in sad shape when she got it. I remember thinking she'd bitten off way more than she could handle but ten years of constantly upgrading worked wonders.

I admire people that have that kind of fortitude. I am so lazy that I wouldn't buy a house if it had carpet in one room that needed to be replaced.

Very interesting - was the house log cabin or stone construction? I have never lived in the country but over the past few years have become very interested in rural log homes barns and stone houses from watching the TV shows (Barnwood Builders, etc). I have made drives through the back roads of rural Western PA and NE/Cent OH to look at these types of structures. What amazes me is the level of craftmanship to build these homes and barns when there was no power tools nor cranes, tools nor cranes.

Are they both moving to Florida with you?



No, it doesn't look like it at this time. Although I would not be surprised if that changes once we get settled.

Very interesting - was the house log cabin or stone construction? I have never lived in the country but over the past few years have become very interested in rural log homes barns and stone houses from watching the TV shows (Barnwood Builders, etc). I have made drives through the back roads of rural Western PA and NE/Cent OH to look at these types of structures. What amazes me is the level of craftmanship to build these homes and barns when there was no power tools nor cranes, tools nor cranes.


It was built post and beam style, the posts had wooden pegs in them to hold everything together. The out side was clapboards. The interior walls were horsehair plaster.To me itís interesting to think the house was built before the U. S. Even existed.

I've endured what is probably the most stressful, scariest past few weeks ...

Recently retired, I went to the doc for a delayed physical: blood work showed a high PSA.

Met with urologist: he scheduted MRI which showed prostate cancer.

Damn.

Urologist needed to know if it spread, so I had a CT scan last week and a bone scan today.

Awaiting test results which could be existential is not a way to enjoy life: I've been an uptight cat on a hot tin roof.

Just got the results: clear, it hasn't spread.

I'm happy ... not to have cancer, but to have a realistic shot of beating it and living to enjoy my retirement.



My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer 13 years ago. He died last year at 92, from old age. It's never good, but it isn't as bad as most others.

This has to be one of if not THE WEIRDEST photo I've seen in the news:



Somebody shot fireworks at a church causing it and a house to burn; the owner had a large collection of mannequins.

What a world ...

This is one of my "favorite" fire pictures.
