    I was hearing today that the average house payment in San Jose is not $4,000 a month. When we sold our home in 2006 North Fremont Quail Run it was $1,000,000 today that same home is $2,000,000. Thing is the only way you can survive in that type of environment is to have multiple families in a dwelling, glad I escaped all that, and can see all of my family here they are all within 10 miles and my son lives down the street from me......Jetspray

    I lay in bed thinking what chores I have to do that day. I prioritize the tasks then do the easy ones twice and leave the harder ones to (maybe) do later. .
