We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"But then, maybe it just needs some new paint! :-)"
My thoughts exactly, at least looking at the outside.
Whitewashed walls, blue or black roof tiling, and it looks quite different.
Might want to put in a window in that large blind wall, but of course we don't know what's behind it.
Maybe eventually some skylights in the roof, looks like you could put a few rooms on the attic and it'd break it up a bit too.
Since you like lotteries and homes near ski resorts, you could kill two birds with one stone by entering HGTV's 2011 Dream House drawing for a home in Stowe, VT, a GMC Denali and $500,000 (the cash is to help pay the taxes).
