I was too busy to post yesterday.  I was so worn out from moving furnishings into a vacant house, that I went to bed at 9.  Today was the fun part - decorating the house.  It was still a lot of work, but fun.  I've moved a few times myself, and never have I finished a house in a day.  I designed ...

In 2006, Harrisburg had 352 s...
