I have family in Massachusetts and I've spent time there a number of times. When my uncle in MA found out what I paid for my home in South Fla a few years ago, he busted out laughing because as in his words "no way you'll find such houses even delapidated ones anywhere in Massachusetts. " However now he's changed his tune about South Fla, his words now are;"How does anyone live there? Especially with the pay?" I'll say he's right about one thing; they do pay higher in Boston.

I love South Florida but hate the cost of living. As a young person in this demographics,I'm glad I bought my home before the boom turned outrageous. But I've had to deal with sky-high assessment fees because of Hurricane Wilma; association fees have gone higher because of the high costs of insurance. And though the thought of moving out might seem reasonable; I've seen relatives and friends who moved out of South Florida and other expensive locales to be faced with other rude awakenings such as taxes they never paid for down here. I've even seen a few move back. So I know the grass is not always greener on the other side. But in the meantime, I choose to live beneath my means; increase my income and hope for a correction in the market. However, I wouldn't debunk the theory of moving when the right opportunity comes a knocking. (May 14, 2007 | post #356)
Can somebody explain to me why this is newsworthy? It should be news when I'm surprised; in this case NOT! (Apr 25, 2007 | post #308)
And speaking of age; there were still some twenty-somethings the last time I checked i.e. Udonis, Kapono, Dorell and Dwyane. What happened? Dwyane; two five-turnovers game is just plain wrong hurt or not. Remember you got hurt in a critical game 5 last year against this same Bulls team and you came back to take the victory. According to you the game became slower and caused you to focus. What happened? Play smart though you're hurt. (Apr 25, 2007 | post #17)
Memo to Pat Riley: I know you're a Hall of Fame Coach but what made you so great is your knack for adjustments. So why don't you adjust your strategy and start Posey in place of Eddie? Posey has something to prove against this frisky Bulls as he showed last night. Also, why don't you insert Dorell just as a spark to this aging team? If only to grab some rebounds and get under the gritty Bulls skin or even foul out; it would be well worth his effort on the scoreboard. (Apr 25, 2007 | post #15)
Well let's give it up for the zebras (I mean the refs) who missed a critical goal tend call that should have favored the heat, gave Shaq (then switch it to Posey) a tech while both were on the bench cheering their teammate UD for an excellent play. What else? Oh I remember; not seeing the impressive "Oscar" win of Ben Wallace's flopping. Flops from four-time defensive player of the year; you're better than that Wallace!

I'm confident about the Heat to right the wrongs in game 2 since most Heat players forgot game 1 started the playoffs. Where was Eddie? Gary was an oven mitt (instead of the glove), Kaponos shooting was out-of-touch, Zo was playing a measly 14 mins and Posey got a bit timid by being public enemy 1 with bulls fans they are bound to answer the Bulls with another punch. Im afraid to say this but Walker was actually good. (Apr 23, 2007 | post #4)
