Fleep & Rachel – Nov 16, 2006 Love your pub! I live in Kuwol, next region to the east. Chilbo is much nicer! We don't have any parks, sidewalks, or pubs at all; just houses. I hope I'll see you at your pub sometime! Rachel

Fleep & Rachel – Nov 22, 2006 Hi Fleep. I'm sending a notecard to avoid clogging up your IM box. I looked at that first lot again, and it's a good thing i did. Now that the sidewalk is in there, i can see that my house will be too long there as well. I measure the house as being 15 by 25, at most. I was using those 4x4 yellow blocks from the quot;edit terrainquot; menu to measure it, so I think it's a bit smaller than that; but not much. I'm going to think seriously about going up a tier: I really want to live in Chilbo! But even if I don't move in the end, I'd still like to be involved with the community association. And once again, don't worry about any of this until your holiday is done! Warm regards, Rachel
