A transcendence indeed."


So your home does not look like a house, but like a 50's power station. Some might find that re*volt*ing. Some may find it *electrifying.* Is there *amp*le room? Do you have *power* lunches there? Do visitors say, "*Ohm-my*? Is it built on solid *ground*?

*Watt* does it matter if it looks like a power station. You could always *transform* it into a post-modern structure which is the *current* style. Was there any *resistance* from any of your family members when you decided to move into this structure? Who's bright idea was this?

Does your home make a *power*ful statement? Does it lend itself to the *transmission* of any thought-provoking ideas?

Speaking of the rooms, how do you *coulomb*? Do you throw the trash into a *receptacle*?

Do you ever get any *Negative* reactions to your home?

Maybe I should *switch* to another topic! I'm *Positive* that I should.

(My feeble brain had no resistance to the preceding puns. My apologies to those for whom English is not your native language; the puns may not translate well into another language... But, after all, that is not my *fault*!)
