Popped collars? Really? This makes you more sophisticated? I can hardly stand either island anymore, no offense. The land is certainly beautiful, as are the beaches, but it is attitudes like this from more »

I don't agree. I think anyone can afford a "starter" home. It just depends on where you want to start. We started in Wellesley. Bought low, sold higher, lucky us. Then, even though we could have affor more »
