Sorry! At first I messed up my link – posting my name instead of the post name. I tried to fix it by submitting a second one. So I’m sorry!

I posted a sneak peek of some new condos I got to visit in downtown Indianapolis. Very nice…

Thanks for all the links…

I too love That Girl.

I want to share this listing with you but it’s not on my blog so I’m not Mr. Linking. Anyway, the thing about this house in my neighborhood (which is VERY hilly) is that it’s on a “stairway street” which means it can only be accessed from street level via a stairway – in the case of this house, 87 steps.

When we were house shopping, we considered one of these stairway houses but it was too many steps, too little house for us.

Why S?–
Great article! I can’t imagine climbing up and down those steps all the time, but the house is really cool. I added the link for you! -Julia :)

I live in Louisiana. It is said that Nicolas Cages’s New Orleans house is one of the most haunted houses in the French Quarter.

It still is a very beautiful house though.

You’re right! I was just reading about that. It’s another house he owned in that area (and just lost to foreclosure), called the LaLaurie House. You can read about its macabre history here:

That letter to Pottery Barn was so funny – great point, especially about the pancake picture.
I know with so many people losing their (only) homes, I shouldn’t feel especially sorry for Nicholas Cage. But, I do nonetheless. He clearly loves houses, collecting them (as you say) like baseball cards, and it must hurt to lose them.

I feel something that’s rather disconcerting and alarming about the former Marlo Thomas house. Particularly around the finicular thingy and the tennis court.

Something has happened there. There’s some bad juju.
