DEALS O’ THE WEEK, FLIGHTS AND MORE

I’d plant corn on the first forehead furrow, then peas, and maybe zucchini.

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER
I always wondered what it would be like to ride in the back seat of the car with Dog the Bounty Hunter after being captured by their motley crew using their squirt guns and whiffle ball bats or whatever they use to capture hardened criminals. I could see him telling me how I should get my life together as I broke down. He’d offer me a cigarette to break the ice even though I don’t smoke. I’d ask for a corn cob pipe instead as I find pipe smoke pleasant or maybe I’d ask for a Mentos because they’re chewy and last awhile.

I’d find it odd that he would want to console me even though he nabbed me for jumping bail. Forgiving man, but he also tells you like it is. I’d like to use him as a personal psychologist. I’d jump bail just to have him chat with me about what I need to hear.

But I’d have no idea what he was saying since I’d be fixated on his deeply furrowed wrinkles on his forehead and face. His patch of acne added to the mystery of his face. His face was like a shar pei dog. Lotsa interesting nooks and crannies. I wondered if he’d notice I was staring at his wrinkles. I mean, how could I not look. I’d be thinking I could neatly plant rows of corn or peas in the crevices.

Didja ever look at some anomaly on someone’s face just trying to figure it out while they talked to you. I do that a lot because I notice those kind of things. I’m always thinking of what they could do to fix it and the cost and why they didn’t take care of it sooner. That’s me, always trying to think ahead and trying to improve things.

I’m always checking my face for these type of things. Sometimes I’ll put a nugget with hair in it to see if my friends will even say anything about it. A true friend will acknowledge it out loud…and mine will do it in public.

Back to the Dog. While his uniquely proportioned wife drove the car, to show my appreciation for his help I would tell knock-knock jokes. Those jokes were used for bartering back during the day of the Indians and Cowboys. You could trade beaver and fox pelts for a knee-slapping knock-knock jock. It would be my contribution back to them for helping me out. It would be the least I could do.

PANERA
They opened a new restaurant in Clayton, MO in which customers are asked to donate what they want for a meal. Doesn’t matter if they pay a penny or $50 for the meal. It’s nonprofit and is named using their former name and is called St. Louis Bread Co. Cares. It’s the same concept as a restaurant called The One World Salt Lake City Restaurant which has operated as such since 2003 and server unprocessed organic food.

A handful of restaurants operate under a nonprofit, create-your-own-price model. You can pay a penny or $100 for your meal. They are One World Salt Lake City in Salt Lake City, Utah, SAME (So All May Eat) Café in Denver, CO, One World Spokane in Spokane, WA, Potager in Arlington, TX, A Better World Café in Highland Park, NJ, St. Louis Bread Company Cares in Clayton, MO (owned by Panera – others to be called Panera Cares), Comfort Café in Denver, CO, and Café 180 in Denver, CO.

CRIME
Property crimes were down 4.9% and violent offenses each declined 5.5% in 2009, much steeper than drops in 2007 and 2008. Murders dropped 7.2%. Amazing, since you’d think crime might increase in a recession. There were many reasons attributed to the drop. Make up your own, but it’s all good.

Also, the number of inmates in city and county jails dropped by 18,000 to 767,600 at the end of June 2009. It’s the first drop since statistics have been compiled by the Bureau of Justice Statistics in 1982.

MORTGAGE RATES
30-year mortgages rates around 4.75%! If your mortgage rates are over 6%, definitely look into refinancing. The lowest rate ever was 4.71% in December 2009, the lowest since Freddie Mac began keeping records in 1971. 15-year rates hit 4.17% in June 2010, the lowest ever. They are hovering around 4.2% now. I refinanced at 4.25% back a few months ago. Can’t beat these rates and they may never be this low again. Back in the early 1980s interest rates were in the 14% to 18% range for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage.

AT&T
AT&T settled a class-action lawsuit that claimed it delivered DSL data service slower than promised. If AT&T’s records indicate it configured the downstream speed of a user’s DSL service at a slower rate than pro
mised, they are eligible for up to $2.90 a month the service was too slow.
