the easy life

I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life; I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.
--Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) 26th US President

As an aside...those of you from Johnson City, TN may have heard that the well-known Grindstaff Castle is on the auction block next month with an asking price of $19.5 million -- just in case you're in the market -- down from its original $28.5m listing.  Here's the JC Press story -- and here is the actual listing - more photos here and here. But I doubt it goes for more than $5 million at auction...What's your guess?  You might remember back in January 2009, the castle was engulfed in flames.  And while you're house shopping you might want to consider the eleven most expensive homes on the market today, all with price tags over $50 million.
