Hello Again...

So I've got some good news and some bad news.

Good News: I finally put up a new blog post.

Bad News: We sold the farm.

Let's start with the bad news first.  When we bought the acreage out in the country, our big goal was to build the house of our dreams and ride off into the sunset on that property.  Unfortunately, things didn't work out that way.

Like many of you, we were punched in the gut by the real estate collapse in the US.  We bought the farm pretty much at the peak of the market, then the bottom fell out.  So when it came time to meet with the bank about a construction loan, it became clear it was a no go.

It was a tough decision, but we sold the farm and moved.

More Good News:  We live on some property that has a pond now!

I'll make an effort to post up some more stuff soon.

Sorry for the delay!
