zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzi prefer to listen to youse americanos, its nice to hear things from the horses mouth. I like to listen, Im a podcast junkie, Ive often suggested the Boss does a podcast.

However, like a lot of people worth listening to, the bloke that delivers the goods doesnt think he has anythig worthwhile to say.

One day, I hope that changes.

Im working on it.

Guess I should reply  :-D

Cindi, thanks for asking and I'll give you a good run down. I have some photos, but the angles of the room and my lens make it difficult to show off entire rooms for their beauty. But the master could be a magazine cover, wall is a sun-shiny yellow, with room darkening blinds and curtains to all total to almost not light for day sleeping.

We also setup bedroom 2 when Ted and his family we on their way to Maine after spending the first night - I got to paint one wall in ter and I fully repainter (rustolium Wuite) the fan that was in BR2 and it looks teriffic.

I have shorted all the doors by 3/8th inch to adjust to the new carpet height and painted all the 5 hallway doors (BR1,2,3, a close and the bath) it is a lot of trim painting and tedious stuff. The hall and BR2 are a creamier yellow, like a cream cycle with little orange color in it.

That too with be the living area which fully opens to the kitchen and dining room - a nicely open floor in the living area. I've installed blinds to all second floor (main) and painted all closet doors. Not to forget the hallway doors, corners, ceiling around attic stairs - I've been busy I prome :)

The place is looking great, I will get photos - but let me finish painting everything - I know I show the living room from the kitchen, and kitchen and diningroom from the living room, but they are far from being painted. I want to perfect my painting skills and I'm saving the living area for last.

In my backyard, I have 2 regular bird feeders, a thistle feeder and hummingbird feeder setup JUST outside my dining room window, we keep a bird book RIGHT THERE with binoculars, we love searching a new bird. Yellow American Finch is most popular after sparrow, robins, doves and regular finches. The humminbird feeder is a smash too :) I read once that we move slow slow, hummingbirds CAN'T see us unless we make HUGH motions. You can stand feet from the feeder and they will see you frozen and no threat - cool.

So I have a bit more that 1/3 acre (which is large around here) that backs up to an out of service for 30 year railroad behind my picket fence and protected land for miles and miles behind me - all wetlands protected.

It takes about an hour and 15 to mow it with a self propelled mower. My neighbors are very nice, young Gerard and lind, Older Will and Gloria and Norman and Irma - the family on my right keep to the selves mostly. They have 3 girls who rarely play outside?!

The front view is a nice sub-urban area, with well kept houses in a "Leave it to beaver" type neighborhood. There are many style homes and I feel lucky and believe honestly that our view (front and back) is one of the best on the street :)

The main things I did when I moved in was have Central Air installed in the attic which ideal because cold air flows down, when it comes through an A Coil through the heater ducts at floor level, the air stays neat the floor and is hot to the ceiling and cool at the couches - most people with forced air run fans in the winter to keep the temps steady. So the Attic AC is wonderful, cools the house off in 30 minutes and is quiet because it installed to the rafters NOT the attic floor.

We also have beatiful wall to wall installed with a pet and spill resistant padding, all nice stuff - but I swear in 6 weeks here, no cat has had any kind of accident or an on-purpose! They love the house, much sunnier and open, they are much happier here.

Lots of stuff to still move, we take our time and bring a car full of stuff every time we go to the other house. Lots of stuff to give away and quiet a bit to come to our new home, still boxed but good stuff we need to keep.

Got to go Cindi - hope this filled your sweet-tooth :)

John

Hope I've filled in some blanks, I'll work on the picture thing, I promise.

John, excellent, you have painted the most beautiful picture for my mind's eye, you took me right into your home, others have enjoyed this visit too, I am sure.  Your new home, yard, bird feeders, everything, sounds most wonderful.  The house sounds like something else, the openness of it sounds lovely.  I love open houses that are cheerful and bright and the colours sound like they complement each other beautifully.  You have done a lot of work, and more to do I know, and I bet you are honing your painting skills, to tackle that final part of painting that you want to perfect, good for you.  Thank you for taking us all into your life, you did a great job!!!  ;) :) :) :)  Have the most wonderful and awesome day, Cindi
