First Time Home buyers with children in Phila Pa are hoping to find their home before April 30,2010. I have found younger children to be quite enjoyable in the home buying process. Children are just as eager to find a home as their parents are. We looked at several homes over the last few days . Today when we were out we discussed the timing of the first time home buyers tax credit and interest rates .After viewing several homes ;the last home seemed to have everything they wanted in a home. Here is a short "video" of their daughter's (19 comments)

Friday Funnies:SEXX and the Computer - 02/04/10 10:58 PM
A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. 'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.' 'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.' A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?' Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because: (24 comments)

Looking for homes with parents and their children can be fun ;but the the children become bored and tired.They have their playtime and sleep times interrupted.It becomes a strain on the children,the parents,and yes the Real Estate Agent. The weather here has been very cold.The children are bundled up , fasten into their car seats, then out again when we view each house. It is not only difficult for the parents who are anxious to find the right home for their family;but it is also difficult to keep their children focused.I must say these children were very well behaved.
