The house that was almost ours ( 6801 s meadow glen westerville, OH )

So we found a home that we thought was a good bargain - 6801 south meadow glen , in Westerville Ohio.

The home was beautiful, and we entered a contract to buy the home. We knew the house was priced to accomodate some work that would need to be put into the house, but we were assured the only work needed was asthetic.

We were very excited until our inspector told us we needed to look at something. Water damage coming through an external wall that had left rot on a joist in the floor, visible from the basement.

There was also a vertical crack in the basement that leaked when a rain storm came through a few days later.

We asked the builder to fix these two issues, and we'd be all set. They told us it would be done, then a week later they counter-offered (their own offer) to offer a $750 credit. The repairs would cost at least $1500, and WAY more if there was mold in behind the wall.

There is no way we would buy a house without knowing where the water had come from, and whether or not it was still an active problem.

I hope the next homebuyers of 6801 meadow glen in westerville ohio know what they are getting into.

Bank Of America sucks (in Ohio)

So today one of our interns asked me what I thought would be a simple question. He cashed his paycheck, and wants to deposit it in his Bank Of America account. I looked up an ATM - the closest one was in Dayton. Yes, Dayton - 50 miles away. Certainly a bank as large as BOA has some connection with Jeanie, etc..

Nope - when I called their customer support line they suggested mailing any deposits to your local branch and they could deposit it for you.

Logic and Precedence

So I need a marriage license.

The Delaware county website states:

•A current driver’s license OR valid state ID AND proof of Social Security
number must be shown to the Deputy Clerk.

I took that as it is written, that you need one of the following:
  • a driver's license
  • a valid state ID and proof of social security number

Unfortunately I have run into this lack of understanding so I called to make sure. Why people dont understand that you evaluate an and operator before an or operatore will never make sense to me. You learned to do multiplication before addition, is this that much harder??

Sure enough, you need a social security card and a driver's license or a social secuirty card and a state issued ID.

Kansas fell, just more proof that President Obama is no smarter than any of the rest of us!!

Charles has taken the lead, but many of the leading contenders had Kansas in the final (one of yours truly's as well)

Heres a little insight as to the potential of each bracket, orange is points accrued, blue is the total points you could possibly earn..

Joe Masucci now leads the pack, clinging to the hope Villanova will be able to earn a victory in the second round without help from the zebras..

Friday, March 19, 2010

At the start of day 2 Bill is dominating, in both first and second place.. 8 people are tied with 12 points.

Its still wide open, although Steve Chandler and Joe Masucci will have a long road ahead, having a final 4 team knocked out on day 1
