Touching story. Remarkable the impact you can have from a keyboard.

Oh man, i miss my Cornwalls. Awesome speakers. I had to part with them many years ago due to financial hardship. Life is good now, would be better with some cornwalls though.

There is a difference between a house fire and an apartment fire. Mainly, im not going to set my own house on fire and not be aware. In an apartment, who knows what the neighbors are up to or neglecting.

The article didn't really mention anything about the longevity of stick construction. Fire seems the bigger concern. If they don't burn down, I'm sure that will stand longer than I would desire to live in one.

My daughter is learning to program and code at 11. She has shown interest in robotics and i couldnt be more proud. I like what Sanford is saying in the article. All kids should strive for success and to shape the world through the success. But damnit if colleges and college boards are not blinded by money.

Not familiar with the entire situation. Are you from the area? I don't see the article, and explicitly the qoute you provided, pointing at Arizona hoping Trump would do something?

If I learned anything from this; it's to never live on the upper floors of one of these tinder boxes.

Thanks for mentioning The Mountain Goats. I've never listened to them before. Listening to "This Year" right now. Good stuff.
