On Sunday we headed for Northwestern Ohio for a family visit. My nephew was having a house warming party and we had to see the place. The house had a sad recent history but with a whole lot of work from my sister, her husband, and my nephew it is now a very nice little place. Bought for a song after a Sheriff's sale, the small house, a century-old tavern, and good size lot all across the road from the Maumee River represent an excellent investment. The property also holds potential as a life-long residence even for the young man now living there. Good luck, Ben, and may your new home be filled with good friends, good times, and happy memories!
Early in the trip my 2002 Honda Civic EX turned 100,000 miles. The car's in great shape which, to many people nowadays isn't a big deal. I, however, grew up in a time (not that long ago) when a car with 100,000+ miles on it was usually good and ready for the scrap yard! This baby is still rarin' to go, gets very good gas mileage, and looks great.
