For a while now I've been hanging the name Christopher Guest on the guy who plays Chuck McGill, Jimmy's brother in Better Call Saul, as well as various bits in Best In Show, Coneheads, This Is Spinal Tap etc. This is incorrect, his name is Michael McKean. Christopher Guest is McKean's costar in This Is Spinal Tap as Nigel Tufnel, also Count Rugen in The Princess Bride. Is AirBnB driving up rents and home prices? How much? How long should you wait for a housing market turn? Depending where you are in ... (...more)

Thursday was traditionally my bookkeeping evening, but I stayed late puttering with the last of the old computers in storage last night, so that's a to-do for today instead. Getting very discouraged with housing search. Hard to believe it's been 4 years at Casa Cascade, and I have a gnawing fe... (...more)

Had a really relaxing weekend after such a crazy week... relaxing, that is, once I got over the twin feelings that any moment I was going to hear my car being stolen, or that roaches would suddenly start pouring out of the woodwork. But the neighborhood seems to be a bit safer than my paranoid imagination imagined; let's remember that when I came to look at the place at dusk Thursday there were kids playing in the driveway next door. The neighbors and I are predominantly the same color... which shouldn... (...more)
