I saw a couple of interest, which I’ll write about later today (too much concentrated real estate is bad for my mind), but here’s a contract reported that looks pretty good.
15 Shady Lane
15 Shady Lane, in Glenville, asking $1.995 million and only 20 days on the market. I didn’t see it, but from its pictures it appears to be a very nice house, with lots of room and a good setting.

Mourning period over, Kim Jong un assembles a new harem to replace those let go when the Dear One passed on.
The previous “pleasure troupe” was disbanded on the death of the old dictator in December 2011, but with the official three-year mourning period now over, Kim is free to start his own.

Government officials would conduct searches of the countryside for the most attractive young women, typically taking 30 to 40 every year, who would become maids, singers, or dancers following an interview with the leader.
The prettiest would be expected to become the leader’s concubines, eventually passed on – or “retired” – to high ranking military or government officials after they reached their mid-20s.
Often as young as 13 or 14, the recruiters would tell their parents that their daughters were being taken away on a government mission to serve the nation’s leader. As with everything in North Korean society, the parents had no say in the matter, even if they did have suspicions over what was really happening to their daughters.
