Facebook is trying to morph into a Twitter clone -- sort'a. I do prefer Twitter over Facebook (more intuitive, less proprietary, more open and flexible) but I'll go where the people are. I don't own stock in either company. ~ link
Yesterday's offer on the condo became a contract today. The buyer is pre-approved for a USDA RD loan.

The funds were supposed to be released in October but now the expected date is the end of March.
