The grass is always greener on a foreclosed property
I had CNN Headline News on here and there this weekend and for the most part it was pretty useless. Those little 1-minute blurbs about our economic situation... really helpful, there are momentous, historical and disturbing things going on right as we speak but somehow that apparently can be summed up in a 1-minute blurb, haha.
Anyway, one of their little blurbs was how some company in, I think it was California, spray paints dead, brown lawns of foreclosed lawns green. After all, a brown eyesore lawn might make it harder to sell the place that isn't selling.
I really don't know what to say about this except boy, we sure are so into appearances aren't we?! I mean, what's that all about, you buy a house and realize the lawn is dry as a bone and spray painted green? Isn't that a fire hazard? What if a dog eats it? Is the run-off safe? My goodness. Questions and more questions.
Oh here's the article about it: http://www.news10.net/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=48264&provider=top
The company that comes in and paints those brown lawns green is doing a brisk business, apparently. Well score one for "Greener Grass Company." But I think the world just gets weirder all the time these days. Whoowee.
