  1. VREAA, you have to rig up some sort of way where folks can easily link your blog posts on social networking sites. Or do you have something like that already and I’ve just missed it?

    i don’t know anything about the html required or where to get said widget

    but i think there is some kind of widget button you can put next to the facebook/rss buttons at the bottom of each article, and within it will pop up 20+ social media buttons you can then choose between, be it diggit or reddit or whatnot – might get you a lot more hits to your fantastic site.

  4. Tax rates are higher on Kelso’s pad. I think the rate is about 1.25%. That’s $39,000 per year, or $3250/month. And the costs keep rolling in: it’s close to 1 acre (0.405 hectares), so maintaining it and keeping it secure is going to cost someone something. Maybe you can buy it and return it to its natural state, being low water usage scrub brush and dirt, or keep it they way it is and pay the water bills. Don’t those grounds look a bit lush for a city with chronic water shortages?

    Just sayin’…

  5. Looks like Ashton/Demi are doing a HollyWoodHills ‘bug out’ in favour of less ‘urban’ environments/lower pop. densities…

    [SoftPedia] – Ashton Kutcher Stays Fit to Save Family from Armageddon

    …“It won’t take very much, I’m telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle,” he says. In fact, he got a first taste of what’s to come last Christmas, when he and his family were stranded at a mountain cabin for 14 hours during a power shortage. It was then that he realized that he needed training for Armageddon. “It was 20 below zero. I got my guns out. We made a fire. We went to the grocery store, and the doors were open because they’re all electronic. People were rolling in and out, clearing out the shelves,” Kutcher recalls with a shudder.” …

    Subsequently, Ashton had a ‘change of heart’… 😉

    [SoftPedia] – Ashton Kutcher Says Training for Armageddon Story in Men’s Fitness Was a Joke

    ““Here’s the thing: you do these interviews for like a Men’s Fitness or something, and they’re always asking you like, why do you work out, what’s your motivation to stay in shape?” he says. Putting into words his real motivation about working out would have made for a rather boring story, so he chose to make up this story about aliens and the end of the world and people fighting over food. “And you really don’t want to say I want to look good, I want to be healthy, it doesn’t really sound fun. So I kind of got going on this roll of the apocalypse…”…

  6. So what’s your point??
    Given a choice, with everything else being equal, would you choose the dump in Kits over the house in Malibu ???
