If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears the beat of a different drummer

Contrary to what I have said (and thought) before, Doctors sometime *are* right – even if only partially so.

Hello Darkness my old friend…

About a house

How would you like your house to be?

Here’s a brief description of one that a colleague bought a couple of months ago:

  • 4000 sq ft spread across two levels and a basement
  • Large living room, a lounge next to the dining room, and a patio overlooking the backyard
  • A family den on the 2nd floor, an attic and three large bedrooms for the family
  • A home-theater in the basement with crawlspace next to it, and a three car garage
  • Lots of trendy furniture to fill the spaces in the various rooms

And here’s what I am thinking of:

  • A small log-cabin as close to the wilderness as you can get
  • A living room that’s also the family den
  • A couple of bedrooms, and a small kitchen
  • Preferably a stream flowing nearby
  • No empty spaces to worry about at all

What do you think?
