This is why I would NEVER live in a neighborhood with a HA. That being said, I think it is unfair to complain about it once you have knowingly moved into that neighborhood, assuming the HA guidelines/rules were given to that person beforehand. I assume it is the "restrained elegance" that attracted those people to the neighborhood in the first place. Now he moves in and decides he wants to break the rules? Personally I'm not a fan of HA's, therefore purposely stayed away from them when house shopping.

Hmmm, I don't have much style, which is why I come here so I can get ideas, but I love calm and serene.

My favorite soundtrack is Pride & Prejudice (2005 movie, not the 1995 BBC)! I am addicted. I bet it would sound even better coming at me through those dandy speakers!

Wow! Definitely my favorite so far. Very cheery colors yet warm at the same time.

I prefer non-pastuerized. I am lactose-intolerant and someone suggested I try "real" milk. It made an immediate difference in my life. I can now actually drink a glass of milk and not have to worry about you know what, ha!

I think pasteurization was needed back in the day because there weren't enough regulations in place and it was common to have unsanitary conditions. Truely, it is outdated now that our society has advanced to one that uderstands the importance of hygeine, especially as it relates to food sources. You can get sick from paseurized milk just as easily as un pasteurized. That is why it is important to know where your food comes from and that it is a farm that hasn't had citations.
