I'm actually a little surprised that there aren't more people living in apartments or condos.
I lived in a house my whole life, then a college dorm room for a year, then an apartment for a year, & now a house again.

Houses are cheap here - one of the benefits of living in a company town away from major cities.

Cheap housing in CA? You must live in the extreme desert.

My idea of cheap is relative to California prices only too - which is a big factor lol

I lived in an apartment for most of my life, but not in the last 4 years.

Although I understand the question, it could have been worded better.

Apartment. It's tiny but it's home.

Stupid question. Do more people live in an house than an apartment?

I do. 16 floors up. I love it...except when there's a power outage and I have to climb those stairs. Good cardio though!

For those that hate yard work, there are robotic lawn mowers now.

It's not just the yard work. Having a lawn is such a giant waste of time, money, water, you name it. AstroTurf makes more sense.

No. I met tony at his yesterday. The fact that I met him is more proof of who I'm not, stop it with the crazy-assed conspiracies.

And no, I wasn't in a parallel universe meeting an alternate version of myself.

A lovely apartment in a great location, with a very weird, alcoholic, but quiet and fairly easy going, roommate. Works just fine for me.

Yes. Condo in the city. We sold our home 2 years ago and 'right sized' into a 1200 sq ft condo. Save a ton on energy bills and use transit or bike to get to work. It's awesome!

If by "live up to my screen name," you mean, am I really a grandma, I sure am! Four grandkids, ranging from 4 to 18.

I watch very little TV. We don't even have cable. One program that I enjoy is Alex Trebek's Jeopardy.

CzarCastic

It's a privilege to be a grandparent. Jeopardy is good. What else u got?

I'm old! LOL Why shouldn't I enjoy "old people" shows? We have an analog TV, no cable, with a converter to make it work and an indoor antenna ("rabbit ears"). Ha ha!

True story. When we were first married, we didn't buy a TV at first. It just wasn't a high priority. One day, my mother came to visit and was horrified. "Get my daughter a TV!" So, my husband ...

Ok. Very strange. Nonetheless aside from playing with ur grandchildren what do u do for entertainment??

GrandmaALiCE Rocky Mtns aerial view

- Play iPod Touch games (like Words w. Friends, Scramble, KenKen, Sudoku)
- Play on SOH
- Read (science fiction, light mystery)
- Go for walks
- Crossword puzzles in newspaper
- Game called mahj with my friends (NOT the computer matching game)

- Go to the park
- Go out to eat
- Free outdoor concerts in the summer
- Go to the local swimming pool

Not a complete list, but should give you an idea. By the way, my older grandkids are 16 & 18, so I don't "play" with them. LOL The little ...

Getting back to your original comment, what did you mean by "live up to your username"?

GrandmaALiCE Rocky Mtns aerial view

You said, "If u live up to your screen name odds are we probably enjoy the same things." What did you mean, since you are obviously much younger than me?

CzarCastic

What gives you the impression that I am younger than you?

GrandmaALiCE Rocky Mtns aerial view
06/13/14 8:35 pm

Well, I'm guessing early 50's, based on your pic (though I realize it may not be you) and a general impression of your polls and some of your comments.

Am I right or wrong? How old do you think I am?

CzarCastic
06/13/14 11:54 pm

It's my son. And judging by ur replys id say ur 82 but looks wise...early 60s.

Right in the middle of your two guesses ... I'm 71.

I saw in another thread, where you said you started a business this year. (See, you have me so curious, I'm snooping! LOL) So, I guessed, you're not close to retirement age. ?????

Either you are pulling my leg ... or you look much younger than your son ... or I'm hallucinating ... or there is a VERY weird SOH bug. The previous picture looked (as I said) about 50ish. The one you have up now looks about 30-35. I uploaded the ...

I'm pretty sure you can look at pictures on Photobucket w/o logging in. I wanted a way to show you what I saw in your profile, in case SOH shows you something else. That happens sometimes. I will delete it, for your privacy, after you reply to me.
