Good morning, Carol... managed to have read five of these recommended posts. The one on the schools was one I wrote a comment challenging that assertion. I don't see the demand for good schools by families in their choice of a home going away any time soon.

Carol Williams than again... her title did the trick! Made me look. Made you look! Happy weekend to you.
