Here's hoping you're having a great Summer. You won't hear us telling you that it's about to end. Them's fightin' words in some parts.

Our video this week features the open houses listed below in our post, and a few others that aren't publicly open, including large, modernized 2213 Agnes:

There are some people who live to work, work to live, and never really quite stop. Perhaps you know, or are impacted by, someone like this.

Vacation is a good idea for people experiencing this syndrome. And so, we're reporting from Oregon today, trying to be on vacation – mostly with success.
