Yes....
1. ALL wall configurations are temporary :-b
2. Make sure you have a solid and complete plan before starting renovations O:-)
3. Don't talk to your neighbours. You don't get asked for favours or engaged in b.s conversations. It's awesome. :-B
4.

5. Be aggressive in paying off your mortgage. If you have a redraw function like we have, you can (eventually) treat yourself to a serious holiday (or treat) if you have been disciplined enough.

So why'd they trot Darvish for the 9th? Didn't they just pay $Obscene for this guy?


CGSO. You'll see teams try to get their starter a CGSO every once in awhile. it's a bummer that I benched him but this is very encouraging. This is actually why I don't try to get cute with sitting/starting and use the start em if you got em approach.


That's understandable. I also agree with the "start 'em if you got 'em" approach.

That would have been pretty funny if Mather had back-to-back walk-offs.

Ah yes, a new homeowner. Congratulations. My wife became first-time homeowners in Dec. 2010. Closing will make your head spin. I signed more papers than i ever have before, but do your best to pay attention, and don't be afraid to ask questions when you don't understand. There's a lot to digest.

After you move in, the work begins! You'll find that you're going to need nearly everything, so plan on a few trips to the local Home Depot or Lowe's. I felt sheepish at the amount of times i had to call my parents and ask what to do with certain odds-and-ends around the house, but the way i figured it was, i won't know unless I ask. Just keep at it and don't let it overwhelm you, owning a house, while a lot of work, is also a lot of fun.

Looks like the Boston bats finally woke up tonight.

Would anyone sit King Felix vs. Detroit tomorrow?

Nope. I would consider him in the "wouldn't sit against the 1927 Yankees" category, with very limited exclusivity ;-D
