Hiya Jane,

Not looking for a room, but your place sounds wonderful. Just had to say that I was wondering the same thing about posting here! Guess I'll go ahead and see if I get any replies... Good luck to you!

Most/all of the chat ends up in the other portions of this forum - I know I check this part occasionally, but it's definitely not active.

Good luck finding a roomie! Sounds like a terrific place!
