    I bet it's a real trick to temperature control that joint.

    I like the smooching dogs out front.

    I know I'm not really going to like much of the furniture in any of these places, but I love the house, the grounds and the dogs.

    I'm shocked they found a sunny day to photograph it.

    I think I would have nightmares dreaming about those beams falling down one by one.

    Ooooh, I love the beams! Perfect for hanging a swing! I want that attic bedroom, and the dogs too please.

    The furniture is inoffensive and looks comfortable so we could probably come to a truce. Hand over the keys.

    It must be global warming then because when I went to school in Brussels I never saw the damn sun for three years unless we went somewhere on break and when I came home for the summers.

    Nothing changed, still like that. It is beyond me how people can live there.

    Begium is gorgeous, very lush and green, lots of history, etc. I would love to go back and see how the Brussels metro area has changed since I was there.
