Been in the same house now for 34 years. The original aluminum siding part doesn’t get algae but the vinyl siding does. Another example of going backwards in technology. Never treated the lawn with anything and each April beautiful waves of dandelions and violets look as pretty as my intentionally planted hyacinths. My dirt and gravel driveway are grandfathered in as permissible by the Township but new homes must macadam the drive to get their occupancy permit. Another backwards improvement, why not let the earth breathe and perk down rainwater?  Why would anyone want a driveway that burns your feet in summer and reflects and holds heat?  

I would be an HOA’s worst nightmare, but I would never buy a home and forfeit my rights to live as I please. 

Now for anyone that needs to know, that algae will disappear without any scrubbing or pressure washing by diluting one cup of white vinegar to a gallon of water and just put that in a spray bottle, spray it and wait a few days.  Gets windows sparkling clean too. Need weed killer?  Just add a cup of epson salt and a few drops of dawn liquid to the above diluted vinegar. 

Say when

 :D Being a red neck I look at HOA's about the same as I do "time shares " .,Not for me .They might be appealing to the country club set though .

Funny thing  about hoity toits .I've had three different women ,all city girls ,classy ladies .For some reason when I get them in the country they fit right in and have no desire to go back .They put up with my 5 to 15 cords of firewood, bull dozer in the woods ,strategically placed junk hiding in the woods and drinking beer on the patio ,out of the can .From evening dresses to blue jeans in a flash . 8)

I have a brother that has a $150,000 house with junk cars in front of it and probably a couple dead riding lawn mowers and various other pieces of iron too. Now nothing really a matter with that, but I'm like Al. Come to my house and you would have no idea the junk I have out in the woods.  ;)

Here is a link to the news story. With pictures !!

Unfortunately, the "writer" confused the word 'pillows' with the word 'billows' so the scenes as well as the writing are surreal ::)

I didn't know what a "HOA" was and had to look it up. Ah, no thanks. I'll stick with living out in the sticks.  ;D

Darwin has a way of doing that. ;D  @Chuck White you are correct. I lived in one, even served as president in an effort to help straighten out the finances. Finally gave up and sold out.

You folks are right about fixing stupid, however with the right medical team at your disposal you can sedate it.

I told him about this thread and he txt'ed about the hmo vice squad is trying to get a rule pass where your dogs an cats have to be registered and have a chip put in with dna so they can test poop and fine the owners who don't pick it up  :D :o.

Now this HOA stuff where lady fair lived in Sylvania Ohio you couldn't even grow a tomato plant in the flower bed .All the lawns were done by one lawn service and all mowed at the same time .Now all that is okay if you're into that I'm just not  one of them .By the same token I'm not one to have a half dozen junk cars in the front yard up on blocks either .It's been said when  in Rome do as the Romans ---or just don't go to Rome .I'll do the later .

Al,

   You are never going to never going to convince me that there is not collusion and kickbacks involved when the HOA designates a specific landscaping service. 

Ed,

   The DNA test is definitely going overboard! Next they will be demanding bells on cats - if not a leash law to protect the neighborhood wildlife, and birth control pills for them. I can't wait for the DNA tests to come back and show it is fox, coyote, possum, coon or armadillo. BTW - was this housing on the left coast? Just asking. :D

No this was in Ohio .The land of cornfields about like Iowa but with better corn .Those fields west of Toledo Ohio are in sections minus the houses on the road frontages .5-600 acres .The muckity mucks live on the outskirts of Toledo .The county club bunch or want-a-be's of same .It's not much different in Columbus Ohio .
