Housing is a mess here too.  I've seen houses I wouldn't put a dog in being
sold for incredible prices.  It's actually cheaper to buy a brand-new house
than an existing one, in many cases (sadly because the brand-new house is
frequently not built to the same quality as older ones).  But we're renting,
so we don't care right now.

We could certainly get the UK editions quickly....
