Buy.com - I bought a Princeton a couple of years ago for about $120. It's still going and am using it right now.

Did you order it online or find it at a big box store? Cause that is exactly the price range I am looking for. They can't deal w/ that 15" screen on the laptop.

WOOOPPPSSS . . . just noticed you had Buy.com - thanx for info!!!

Y'all noticing that the dogwoods are starting to flower?

Oh, and FYI, the last time I was at R&R BBQ it appears that they'll start offering a beef brisket BBQ (on Fridays for now). Gonna have to try it.

The bus stop is in front of our house so he and his father wait for big brother to come home. As soon as he steps out the front door he calls for our dog, it's so cute and then they run along the fence together.

It's a nice day....
Sounds like a PERFECT day to me Nancy!!

I often wonder what people were thinking when they paint . . . you just gotta wonder what was on their minds or helped them make that decision w/ strange colors . . . maybe there was a big sale on inappropriate foundation colored paint the day the previous owners decided to buy paint, Hee Hee.

Hope the day goes well and the painting goes smoooooothly!!!
LOL Ani, most of the guys working for me thought I was nuts when I said I was going to paint the foundation black. The one who was helping me with the paintingn didn't say a word because He's decided that some of my color choices are different but they always work.

After we started painting, they all decided that black was the perfect color

We got it all done, except at the very bottom where we need to dig the dirt away, temporarily.

Hope you had a good day.

I knew that black would be best, Ani! It pops the green. A house futher up the street is white with a black foundation & they kept saying that they didn't like it. I just smiled & said this will be different.

The guy who paints with me has told me that the colors I'm picking are different than what he's used to, but he likes them. He's always anxious to get busy painting to see what it will look like.

It's coming together. The place was a real wreck, but I got it for such a good price...
