|| Spotted in the paper last night:
|| GREAT STARTER HOME, 2-story, 3BR,
|| gutted, new roof & sided, fixer-
|| upper located in Red Oak, Iowa,
|| It was, of course, sold before I could get through on the phone.
| Damn! They're giving away houses in Iowa.....
Not very often. Average price of a new home in the Des Moines area is
something like a quarter-million.
From the description, I guessed that this house had been fire-damaged.
Red Oak, however nice a town it might be, has a population about 6000
and is a fair distance from almost anywhere that might show up on a
map of the USA (the closest such features would be the Missouri River
Remote is nice until you think about such things as TV, internet
connectivity, theaters, restaurants, car repairs, lumberyards,...
