intercst. A clarification.

It was not the Houston real estate market that cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. It was your sale of some Dell stock to purchase REITs (IIRC) that cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Your observations of what happened in the Houston real estate market tended to reinforce your negative opinion.

(I was really hoping that CatherineCoy and others would have started looking at your old posts to figure out the details. I thought that doing so would benefit many. Obviously, I was much too subtle and I caused confusion.)

Have fun.
