House For Sale

So being in the real estate business isn't the best choice of careers right now...if you belive the media hype about the housing slump...or you could take a look at my last three months income...

Thankfully someone always wants to sell a house...
Take this gem near Brasnov in Central Romania... The Bran Castle, which sits on a cliff and is a top tourist attraction because of its ties to Prince Vlad the Impaler, the warlord whose cruelty inspired Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, "Dracula." The castle is now on the market. No price was announced, though Gardner predicted the castle would sell for more than $135 million. He added that Habsburg will only sell it to a buyer "who will treat the property and its history with appropriate respect."

ooooooo I love castles. i know it may seem silly but a few years ago when I lived in arizona, i found this castle for sale just outside san bernadino,ca for 1.3 million and after watching it, drooling and totally dreaming it was reduced it 1 milllion dollars. I used to love think about what if would be like to live there. They even put big red bows on the towers at Christmas time. hmmm i forgot my point of this story...oh well happy tuesday!

Hmmm... exactly how would someone show the 'proper respect' for the past home of someone SO CRUEL they were called Vlad THE IMPALER?? Ritual sacrifices?

Having a castle would be kick-ass though!
