It's a disease!! I think the symptoms peak in your 30's. Then by the 40's, the symptoms aren't gone, you've just realigned some other priorities

I don't know... part of me says I hope so... part of me says I hope not. I do enjoy the end results... makes it "mine".

And yes... just loose money doing it too. I figure all the thousands I put in to stuff, it really just hedges my bet to end up getting full book value back out when it is sold.
