I went to the Rite Aid I usually go to and saw that someone ran into the pillar out in front of the store and the mailbox was also knocked over. I came to find out some lady drove into them, backed up and parked her car, went into the store, bought a newspaper and then left with nary a word to anyone.

Recently, while we weren’t there to see it, we had someone run into the bumper of our car enough to slice it some and they took off. We all have accidents and that is why we have insurance. The best policy is to just fess up and take responsibility. I’ve had people dink my car and I’ve told them not to worry about it and vice versa too – the couple times I got rear-ended, nope, that’s another story. People appreciate honesty. Enough to forgive. As much as we want to think we are always right and do no wrong, we fall far from it. Best to lock in one’s mind to always admit to wrong rather than fight trying to be right all the time. Being humble goes a long way. I’m working with my cats to fess up which one left a vomit pile. So far neither one has raised their hand when I asked who did it, but they’re are still immature so I have to keep working with them on it. I know the guilt will eventually get to them too.

Anyway, they got her license so I suspect she will be getting a knock on the door from the local police. How brazen that she still came in to get her paper. Did she think nobody would have noticed? She obliterated the pillar. I missed seeing it by less than an hour.

The store looks like a wreck because back when hurricane Sandy hit the glass on the front doors were shattered. They still haven’t been replaced.

When I went into the store I saw most of the regular shoppers there. One group talks so loud that I can hear them clear across the other side of the store. Nothing is sacred either. They will talk about everything from ailments to issues. I half want to whip out a lawn chair in Aisle 9 and grab some popcorn and pop and just listen to them. Hearing other people with issues makes ya feel better about yourself. You realize you don’t have it so bad after all. Makes for an interesting shopping trip. Keeps me from falling asleep while I am shopping too.

By the way, this week another driver plowed into a Dollar General. Check out the pic and all at

10) Start digging straight down to see if China really is on the other side. I tried and ended up in Guam. I think I went the wrong direction after I hit some magma.
9) Cobble together all the small pieces of soap in the neighborhood to make one the size of a Kleenex box.
8) Have a staring contest with people at the store.
7) Floss.
6) Practice some break dancing moves that you’ve had on the backburner for awhile now.
5) Get to know your stuffed animals and their life plans.
4) Drink 5 gallons of sweet tea and lemonade whilst in your swimsuit.
3) Keep a diary. Read it to a class of kindergartners.
2) For a weekend live in one of the monsterous snow mounds in a shopping center parking lot. Invite your stuffed animals.
1) Mow the snow.

Great Deals on Homes

Homes are picking up in price. Look for deals on foreclosure lists on the link below. – 7-Day FREE Trial!

We just refinanced our home mortgage again. It’s the third time in about 6 years. The rates just kept dropping to the point we were able to shave more years off of our loan while paying about the same per month. With tax deductions for paying interest on the home mortgage it’s almost like getting a free loan with these low rates.

Now is a good time to refinance or purchase a home due to the very low mortgage rates. The mortgage rates dropped to 3.31% for a 30-year loan in 2012, the lowest since Freddie Mac began keeping records in 1971. The 15-year mortgage rate dropped to under 2.63% in 2012, also a record low rate. Rates continue to be low, but can go upward quickly with the changing economy. As soon as the economy picks up the rates will go up too.

Back in the early 1980s interest rates were in the 14% to 18% range for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage! Since 2000, mortgage rate have hovered around 4.75% to 6%. In 2000, the rates were around 7.75% for a 30-year mortgage and 7.72% for a 15-year mortgage. They are now more than half that rate!

If you are purchasing a home, check for the best interest rates on The PD Real Estate section on Saturdays and Sundays list rates too. Shop around because rates and closing costs can be different. Closing costs are negotiable. Some loans will give you a lower rate for no closing costs. You can also include the closing costs in your loan, so that there are no up-front costs.

Find out how much your loan will be if you refinance at As an example as to how much you can save, if you borrowed $200,000 with a mortgage rate of 5.5% and refinanced to 3.3%, you would drop your payment from $1,136 to $832 for a savings of $304 per month. Another example shows how much can be saved by refinancing to a lower term. If you are five years into a 30-year mortgage loan at a fixed rate of 6% and refinance to a 15-year loan at 2.87%, you will increase your payment by $80 per month, yet cut the term of your loan by ten years and save $130,477 in interest!

Making a $5,000 payment on the principal of your mortgage on a 30-year loan of $225,000 at 4.5% would save $13,000 in interest and reduce the term of the loan by 15 months. Before you do so, find out if there are any penalities for paying off a loan early. Most mortgage loans have a pre-payment penalty of 1% of the loan amount or a flat fee of around $350, whichever is less. The penalty usually won’t go into effect in the last year of the loan.

The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) eliminates the 125% ceiling on the loan-to-value ratio for fixed rate loans owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If you have an underwater loan (you owe more than the house is worth), this program will help you refinance your mortgage to a lower rate. Find them at or call 1-888-995-4673. Housing costs are starting to go back up so even if you didn’t qualify for a refinance in the past because you were underwater, you may qualify now.

You’ll see furniture sales pick up for President’s Day. February is a good month for furniture deals. It is the time to also enjoy the horrible Value City Furniture commercials. They are so bad I can’t get enough of them. So campy. So visually appealing and mesmerizing like a bug zapper to night bugs.
