    I found the “Field Guide to Meth Labs” entertaining. Mostly because it is on the NAR website. Good reads.

  2. Not to much need for me to know about Meth Lab real estate around my area, but I do get people who are big believers in Feng Shui as it relates to townhomes condos and single family homes.

  3. Well after reading this I can see that my wife was right again…

    We needed to get that 6 burner Wolf Stove! LOL!!!

  4. I knew about the stairs, but had no idea about the burners! LOL. Don’t we all sleep under beams in our bedrooms?

  5. @Jennifer – LOL! Good point on the beams, unless we live in a tent!

  6. Careful: If the beams are made of wood from diseased trees, you get Kafka dreams.
