Redfin Walkability, Challah

Sorry for the delay and lack of bread. I've actually become the master of Challah over the past few weeks. Here's a generic Challah template:
1 c water
1 egg
1/4 c honey
1/4 c canola oil
1 scant tbsp yeast
2 tsp salt

1 more egg, beaten with a tbsp of water
Sesame seeds

Mix all the above together. Add in flour slowly until the dough is kneadable. Knead for 5-10 minutes. Let it sit for an hour until doubled in bulk. Punch down and braid. Let it rise another 45 minutes. Brush with the egg/water mixture, then sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Pop it into a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. After 20, be vigilant -- the sugar and egg conspire to make this burn quickly and without warning!

We're in the market for a home, and using RedFin to find properties. Our knowledge of neighborhoods is still not great, but we know wherever we end up we want to be able to walk to the grocery store, a coffee shop, and other things. Here's a little GreaseMonkey script that adds a "Get WalkScore" link below a property's address on RedFin. It just links over to with the current property. Handy!
