RE: What is your dream house style?
I've always been fond of this house. Nice view, and no door-to-door salesmen.

But watch that front door step. It's a real lew-lew!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

On one vacation we rented a 'tiny house'. That was pretty fun. What a contrast!

Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'

I'm sure you would.

That actually doesn't look too dissimilar to the cabin I grew up in.

I'm serious.

That looks like the courtyard of the Pierce–du Pont House at Longwood Gardens, about 25 miles from my house. I've been there a couple times.

Meteora, Greece I presume.

Honey, can you go get a loaf of bread?
Hell no.

Nice place in Greece. Mine is actually in Georgia (country, not state) and is a monastic retreat: Katskhi Pillar
The only way up is by ladder. Cool

It probably is. The architectural site just said "Longwood." Thanks for identifying it!
