[The Life of Shaun #241] Homes

Two random things:

My friend has a room for rent in his apartment in Washington Heights, so sending the details on below.  I used to live in that building and all these years later (six now, yikes!) it still seems to be the best deal in Manhattan.  Mike forgot to mention there's a Taco Bell up there now, too.  And a Starbucks - it's practically North Chelsea!  So please pass on to recommendable potential flatmates or move in yourself, if you're keen!

Attached is a picture of my cousin's house (the white one on the right; <sigh> yes, I have family with a pick-up truck - I know, I know, but my cousin assures me they don't commute in it and it is only used for hauling trees to be planted to prevent the desertification of the central plains, honest!) from this past Saturday with a tornado headed towards it.  Fortunately, it veered North and missed the house.  Unfortunately it missed the truck too.  But I thought it was a cool picture.
