The Kane County Chronicle has a reader's poll every year.  There are a myriad of categories in which the reader's vote for the best this and the best that.  The best hot dog stand, the best bar, the best bank, the best lawyer.  You get the idea. Welllllllllllllllllllll and anywhooooooooooooooooo....
"Countrywide's unfair lending practices have harmed tens of thousands of borrowers who've been placed in unaffordable loans and, as a result, our communities are now being destabilized by a skyrocketing number of home foreclosures," Lisa Madigan said in a statement Wednesday. Her office said that...
Every year we have more regulations, more tests, more certifications.  While I do think that certifications are good, the real issue is the fact that the crooks keep getting away with it.  I have always hated that.  I really do.  According to today's Chicago Tribune.....TODAY, the Feds came in an...
I was raised in a family where doing things and creating memories were more important that having things.  I was the oldest of 5 kids, and my dad was a successful doctor.  However, he knew that it was more important to bond wtih the family and create experiences and memories instead of being a da...
OK....a short and simple blog here.  I have gotten more recognition than ever in the most recent months b/c of AR.  I have met some cool people.  I've been interviewed on radio shows, interviewed by news stations and now have been invited to guest blog from another well respected AR member.  I'm ...
OK...I have to admit it....I'm thinking of a career change. If you're so inclined, I may just join the political foray to mix it up a bit. I think that I can challenge McCain and Obama. I know that each of them have a lot more money than my Campaign, but I feel confident. Really, it's the "grass...
Susan Sarandon has said that she'll move to Canada if McCain wins the election.  First, I'm not really pleased with any of our candidate choices this year.  I think that we could have a better Republican candidate, but we have him.  Definitely not for a man that makes Hillary look like Rush Limba...
I'm sitting in a continuing legal education seminar right now.  Although CLEs can be quite boring, I'm thinking to myself that this guy has a point here.  A great point.  It's a reason to contact your database right now and generate more business.  It all comes down to a 529 plan. The 529 plan is...
Well just as I've been saying all along.  All those promises of NO MORE TAXES helped our Village of Campton Hills officials get elected and a new town created.....Gross. The Kane County Chronicle reported yesterday that "Campton Hills wants to create a special tax district to pay for drainage imp...
Wow...2 deals in 2 weeks?  This is insane.  First housing starts are up 6.3% this month, then I come into the office and I get  a message that went something like this... HI, THIS IS JOE BLOW, AND I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT GETTING A LOAN, CALL ME AT _____.  I call they guy and he said "I SAW YO...

 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
