2015 Trammel Rd, Cumming, GA ~ Le Reve is a Lavish Foreclosed Mansion

A New Low Price For Le Reve, Georgias Most Lavish Foreclosed Mansion.

La Reve

This incredible edifice has 82 rooms, two elevators and 62 televisions. The grounds include a heated swimming pool, pool house, spa, private playground, stables, tennis court, formal gardens and a guest house. The home, which is approximately 47,000 square feet on 72 acres was listed at a stunning $45 million in 2008 just two years after it was completed for a price of nearly $50 million total. Even after a $32M price reduction, the big-ticket problem remains, this home is in Georgia and not in Beverly Hills.

He is unbalanced and unbalanced. A drop of one third is substantial and I like the trend but I know that the Tea Party and other Right Wingnuts listeners still thrive on crazy-and there is a lot of that for them to eat.

Syosset School Superintendent, Carole Hankin, Earns $500k Pay Package While Fresno Super Waives His $800k

Syosset school superintendent gets $500,000 pay package – NYPOST.com.

Carole Hankin

Base salary is 386k. At least the schools have excellent scores. It pays to work in an affluent town (That does not explain why Ossining, NY’s Superintendent earns his base). If the town does not want to pay her this salary then the town/district should not have signed the contract. Sure, complain after the fact but the town/district is responsible for allowing this salary/benefit to occur.

For Those 50+, Finding Jobs is Especially Difficult

Journal News Article

I’ve ¬†been pink-slipped three times (when in my 30’s) and know that job hunting in a recession is not easy and it is especially hard today for middle-aged men. I’m grateful to be employed by a great employer who values the older and experienced workforce.
