The Hamptons DictonaryI just got my “PLATINUM EDITION”  of THE HAMPTONS DICTIONARY, by Miles Jaffe.

Miles (by the way, the name i wanted to change mine to when I was a kid, but my mother told me I wasn’t allowed because tere was no “Saint Miles”. Oh well…) Jaffe takes all the loathing and cynicism that any local can muster and puts it into this great little package.  The book is also timely, due to “the new frugality” although THD will set you back 17.95us, 21.95can and 9.99uk.

todays definition:  spec house n.  

A house designed and built for maximum profit

without concern for function, quality, durability,

ease of maintainence, etc. See McMansion.
