"We used to have these things called Grammar Schools; smart poor people like my mother could get into them by doing well on the 11+ test and thus establish their fitness for middle-classness."John Derbyshire is a product of the Grammar School system, no?
After 25 years of owning a home, we were forced to short sale our house and lost $200,000 last year. We are nearing retirement and have been comtemplating what to do. I would love to own my own home again and a tiny one would be okay once the kids are all gone. The only requirement I would have would be a big piece of property and outdoor area to barbeque and entertain. We do live in Southern California so we like to spend a lot of time outdoors.
