On April 14 the bank announced it had lost $350 million or $0.20 per share during the first quarter of 2008. The losses, which were much higher than had been expected, were due primarily, or course, to problems in the mortgage markets.  Then this past Friday Wachovia got hit with a double whammy....
With times not being what they were a year or so ago, we need to get creative in finding ways to getting people in homes.  While many look for new ways and new programs to make a deal, many miss out on what's always been available to them.  A NON-OCCUPANT CO-BORROWER (NOCB) is just that.  It's a ...
I'm not a "greenpeace" radical.  I'm not into peace, love and granola.  Every year I go on my family vacation in the Rocky Mountains, I am a hippie for a day or two in Boulder Colorado.  I'm just a Conservative dude minding his own business.  Greenpeace and those groups belong on a ship with all ...
This morning on the news was more of the usual GLOOM AND DOOM.  The three issues were:1)  Rice - No....not Condaleeza   2)  Gas  Prices3)  Housing Soft Markets  The usual banter goes on about how Rice prices have increased 79% since the first of the year.  There is rationing in the major US groce...

10:45 pm...ready for bed tonight and the doorbell rings.  I'm all ready for bed just watching the final minutes of the evening news.  Then the doorbell.  The police are outside my home.  I open the door and Officer Johnson of the Campton Hills Police Department says that there is an alarm going o...
Campton Hills Newsletter asks for volunteers to work as a Village Historian to document the history of the village.  Hopefully, there will be the time that it was created and the short and few months that it existed before it was dissolved.  Well most people know that 9 subdivisions have been gra...
Well, I finally hit it.  I was going to make this a spectacular post and reminisce about how great it is to hit 100,000 points in just under 9 months.  I was going to talk about all of the great friendships as well as some young and growing relations that I've made on AR, Ginger's Marin County Re...
Judge Michael Colwell mad a great determination last Thursday when he allowed 5 subdivisions to disconnect from THE EGOs of Campton Hills.  According to the Kane County Chronicle..."Five areas encompassing more than 300 acres may disconnect from Campton Hills and reassume their unincorporated sta...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
