[ - ] Would you offer 900 for house listed at 1.125 if has been sitting for 6 months? Price was already dropped twice. That’s the most we could pay. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: thanks. Another wrinkle: would you offer 855 in a direct sale and say it is equivalent to 900 after commission? I know the people (well I know who they are anyway) and if sitting for 6 months listing must be expiring soon. [ Reply | More ]

you may find they can't accept a direct sale as they are tied into the agent? Not sure how it works there, but that's how it works here in Oz - if you sell privately during the term of your agent's contract with you, you still owe them a commission [ Reply | More ]

OP Yes but I assumed the contract would be expiring soon. I was not up front as 850 is actually our max. I thought 900 would be shot down and when it wasn’t I figured I would fess up. [ Reply | More ]

I honestly think your kids lost out. There's no end to how much you can study, but a shit job gives you invaluable people and coping skills. It's silly to think that another 10 hours a week of yet more studying is better than an entirely different skill set. Too many parents see no value in the skills these part time jobs provide. Then their kids leave their rarified home and private school environment, and they wonder why they fall apart. [ Reply | More ]

Statistically, teens have been pushed out of the kind of jobs they used to get years ago. Concurrently, parents value studying more than work experience, so they prefer to give kids pocket money and skip the after-school job. As a result, teens leave high school and enter college with even less idea of what they're good at, what they want to do, and what they're capable of. [ Reply | More ]

Did all you guys not go to college, or just forget? This happened to 10% of my classmates, at least. Including my DH. Could be anything--a teacher who hates him, hates the dorm culture, the school is just not the right fit. It doesn't have to be some kind of pathology. Even I transferred out after my 3rd year when I realized I had made a big mistake in my choice of major. I was mature enough to line up another option and ignore the wailings of my parents about how I was "wasting time," etc, but many kids are not. Your df should listen to her kid and help him consider other options, some of which may not be the ones she had in mind. Pushing him to continue at something he hates will set him up for failure.

[ - ] I would like to answer this question in bit detail along with the working of Detox Body Blast so that you can have a more satisfying view. The residues of the metabolism are expelled through the large intestine in the form of feces. Over the years, the remnants of the feces accumulate frequently in the folds of the colon. When this section of the colon is clogged, with stones, the organ ceases to receive energy, so it starts to work every time worse. The blood flowing from a dirty colon poisons almost the entire organism. The stones that fill the space of the intestine, contract the corridors and this causes the worsening of its permeability. In this case it is necessary to cut the fragment of the colon that is clogged by the fecal stones, through surgery. If the liver is not able to neutralize the excess of toxins, which flow from the colon, the blood will distribute them to the following organs, where they will begin to accumulate. In this way arise: skin rashes in the form of acne, eczemas – the skin tries to get rid of the poison. The toxins of the colon can accumulate in the walls of the veins, then they create varicose veins, and in the walls of the arteries creating arthritis, and thus developing the multiple sclerosis. Toxins accumulated in cells may cause cancer. The Detox Body Blast formula, highly examined and carefully selected, frees the intestines from accumulating toxins, improves their functioning and prevents the movement of deposits that have a negative impact on our entire organism. Thanks to the unique formula of our preparation, we can prevent the effects of impurities that accumulate in our body and make our organism start to work better.
