Naturally soft water and artificially softened water are completely different in all respects, the natural soft water that comes out of my taps tastes great, is great for washing with, and my plants love it. The artificially softened water from my daughters home tastes like soap, leaves the laundry stiff, the hair and skin "icky", and kills her plants.

We have extremely hard water - so hard, in fact, that the area has an exemption for water quality. No one drinks the water if they can afford a filter or to buy bottled. Good way to get kidney stones really fast! We soak shower heads and faucets in vinegar often, run vinegar through the dishwasher as the softening agents really are not the best. I also use vinegar in the washer to remove smells from towels because without it, the towels smell awful no matter what I do.

That's a good post!

I sleep with the Windows open when I can and NEVER drive a car with the windows open (that's for smokers to open their windows-probably what keeps me from ever opening them is not wanting others to think I smoke.). (Which I don't smoke in case there is ANY confusion!)

Our house had a hoop attached to garage roof. The kids used it occasionally but eventually I removed it because it leaked in the garage. Not to mention it was ugly. When my daughter wad older and had a job she bought a freestanding hoop. Used it about a week. It was ugly and in the way for years. Then I had to pay someone to haul it away. Fast forward, she wants me to buy another one so she can lose weight! NO!

We did when we bought the house. We have a gravel driveway, so I was a little curious how well you can dribble on a sloping gravel driveway (the post the hoop was attached to was crooked too) . Anyway, a chain and a pickup truck got rid of it.

Sophisticated surroundings was my overall favorite as it embodies everything that makes outdoor living great! A path for strolling, flora and fauna, dining al fresco, cozy fireplace for enjoying mild nights with friends and family and a pathway to the home.

Olive Mill and the Rustic Lakehouse are neck and neck for my taste in outdoor rooms, but I love the landscaping design in Sophisticated Surroundings with long sweeping curves.

Circle, I couldn't agree more!!!! Everyone is so worried about what's on trend, they just go with the herd and don't do what they love.....unless they love black, white and shades of gray. I wonder if because that's all they see out there, then they think they love it. But when the next new trend comes around, they suddenly love that! Jessica, I also agree with you! I have my cookbooks one of my counters........I use them all the time!

Our previous 2,098 sq ft home was a two story and we loved it. But, it really took a toll on me running up and down the stairs and cleaning the house took me so much longer. We now own a 1,700 sq ft one story home and we love it. Plus, it is quicker to clean and is such much more friendlier on my knees and back. Yes, this is our forever home and I wouldn't trade for anything. :))

Feeling more secure from home intruders because one is in a second storey bedroom is a false sense of security. Thieves know that most people keep their cash & jewelry in their bedrooms. The premise of feeling "more secure" in a 2 storey is based on the hope that an invader will never venture up the stairs. Why wouldn't they, if they believed that's where the most lucrative 'take' is?

In a one storey, if one hears someone breaking in, they can open a window, jump out, andT run to a neighbor's. In a 2 storey, one is trapped unless they already have a fire ladder attached to the window ready to go. And climbing down that ladder will take extra time opposed to just jumping out a few feet.

The advantage of a more than one storey home is that it maximizes the space in a lot, and it can be cheaper to build. In terms of "escaping" a home it is disadvantageous compared to a one storey.

I live in a 2 storey. I get some of the reasons some folks have a preference for such. But for security??
Uh uh. No way.

And if I felt I needed burglar bars on my windows... I'd have to seriously consider why I was living in that neighborhood to begin with.
