I thought about your place... but we flew in and out of Durango.  Maybe next year. (Note:  The Scout is running again... let me know if / when you're in town.  New radiator, repaired breaks, and "solved" transmission issue.  I'm learning a ton.)

Shame on you Kansas City Business Journal.  Evaluating the rent vs. buy decision on homes with only positive appreciation assumptions, no cost of ownership, risk of needing to move, or frankly any real world variables is not only shameful, it's bordering on deceitful.  
Kansas City is among U.S. metropolitan areas where buying a home versus renting is a no-brainer, according to a new report.

26.2 in KC... Check

Restrain from telling well intentioned onlookers that they don't actually know if I'm "doing great" and it's not likely that I'm "looking good." ... Check, Check

And now we wait...
The Roeland Park City Council on Tuesday night approved an agreement authorizing the company to connect fiber-optic lines directly to homes, but no timeline has been set for the high-speed Internet and TV service to arrive in the Johnson County community.

Notice how he carefully moves the Dr. Pepper to his side of the table.... He's always working an angle.  He must have learned that from his mother.

Introduction

About Roper DeGarmo
Born and raised in Kansas, Roper graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bethany College with a double major in communications and finance. Even before graduation, Roper began his insurance career by becoming a licensed insurance agent and interning with a nationally respected Kansas City based insurance agency. Roper has now set his sights on creating a truly service-oriented insurance agency by utilizing communication technologies for efficient and timely service to his clientele.

Following college, Roper proved his potential by graduating first in his class at the National Alliance School for Producer Development. Roper gained considerable experience working for a prestigious insurance firm until he felt the next logical step in his development was to build his own agency.

Roper’s experience and dedication to his industry has led him to receive recognition and designations including being first in his class at the National Alliance School for Producer Development. Roper earned his designation as a Certified Insurance Counselor administered by The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research. He has also participated in the AIG Private Client Group Risk Management Conference and was a Young Agents Committee Member for the Kansas Association of Independent Agents.

Roper served on the Bethany College Alumni Counsel. He also served as a Church Council Member for Trinity Lutheran Church, Mission, Kansas as well as a high school youth counselor. He is a member of the Kansas Association of Independent Agents. Roper was also selected to the 2009 class of Centurions by the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
