Your Next Place


This semi-detached Georgetown federal is a masterpiece of sophistication, sort of like a Paris Hilton DJ set, but the complete opposite.  Tall and clean-lined, it's also southfacing, so, unlike me as a child, it'll get plenty of warmth.

There's a huge, bright living room and a subdued study perfect for having a late night cigar with your pals while plotting a coup d'etat, or at least discussing fantasy football.  The formal dining room is elegant and spacious, and the kitchen sports high-end appliances and subtly sophisticated cabinets. The very fine washroom is wallpapered with ornate ink-drawn birds, and it's so nice that you'll basically have to drive to 7-11 every time you need to go to the bathroom, it's just far too disgusting of a thing to do in a room this nice.  Upstairs, the bedrooms have personality plus, and there's a fourth bedroom en suite that could also be used as a library, depending on if you own any books and/or are literate.


And then there's the breathtaking custom-built flagstone garden.  A wide flagstone-lined terrace with a sunbathing area and stairs leading down to an intimate firepit area with stone benches, I'm pretty sure this is the nicest backyard I've ever seen.  It's probably nicer than ninety percent of the actual houses I've been in.  You could have a nice sideline renting the yard out so guys could propose to their girlfriends there.  There's even a fireplace, so if she says no, he can fling the ring directly into the flames.  Even if he kept the receipt, the store probably wouldn't take it back anyway, because of the clinging reject stench.

How come so many of your next place images show up as blanks and no one seems to care. I've been following for years, viewed on all types of broswers and OSs and it's still an issue - meaning you aren't uploading them properly and you never fix them. You just stuff and go. Are there editors? Does anyone care? I do, hence this email. Now let's fix it so it doesn't happen again! Please!

FWIW, I have been following this blog for a long time too and have never had a problem with the images displaying, so it might be a user issue. (And jeez... the tone of that comment - brusque! I'd say rude, but at least you said please.)

I've never had an issue seeing the images. I use Firefox and Chrome, and sometimes Safari, and have never seen blank images where the picture should be. Yes, we edit and review, and review the comments and make corrections and clarifications as necessary. That said, Blogger (Google) eats images, and from time to time we lose old images in batches, that we work hard to replace (damn them to hell), but we have never lost current images. I had one problem viewing images once but it turned out to be an outdated browser problem.
