Home ownership hasn’t always been what it’s cracked up to be. Of course, it’s the goal. The be-all and end-all for new couples and even for singles looking for a solid investment.

I almost felt bad for the guy last night … almost … as the heavily made up and bitchiest batch of women to ever hit those “Women Tell All” seats picked him apart like a pack of rabid coyotes. If you channeled the bitterness in that room, you could solve the energy crisis lickety split. MEOW! I still picked up on some observations that made me giggle, {Read More}
