Our Condo

While we're here in Detroit for our 2-week educational residency, we've been staying in a beautiful condo at Aldingbrooke in a suburb of the city. It's sure beats the Holiday Inn! And after so many restaurant meals, it's great to have our own kitchen.

Donna is the best cook of the trio, though I've also made a couple of very edible things during our stay here. The others laugh at me because each time I cook, I end up with enough food for 8 people and then have to eat it leftover for days. But everyone who really knows me knows that my boyfriend, Aaron, is the real chef. At best I'm the worst, the dish-washer ;-)

The condo looks neat! Now here is a conundrum. You say that Donna and Aaron are the best chefs among the four of you. Since they both are pianists, does that mean that pianistic skills are more conducive to cooking than those required to play the cello or violin? Or that their genetic proclivity towards cooking pointed them in the direction of becoming pianists? Since one of your sisters studied neuroscience, she may have some views on this.
P.S. Or there is yet another possibility. Since it is easier to play the piano than to play the cello or the violin--for example, pianists don't need to worry about intonation (either the piano is in tune or it isn't)--perhaps pianists have to practice their instrument less and thus have more time to devote to cooking!

Hint #5 for . Loose knobs, sticking and squeaking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers, and other minor flaws detract from home value. Fix them. Most buyers assume there will be ten hidden problems for every one they see.
