Brett, Brett, Brett...where are you?????  I love what Timberlake said at the ESPYs.  "Brett, what you've been up to dude?"  We haven't heard from you.  This is not only the story of the moment, this could be the football story of the year.  It's well thought that Brett will be applying for reinst...
U.S. new home sales fell marginally in June but the pace was much higher than expected due to +50k of revisions over the past three months.

 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
