Everyone one do the . . . MORTGAGE!

Can anyone explain the association between mortgages and weird dancing figures and mini-videos of dancing people? Frankly, I just don't get it. Do dancing figures subconsciously make me want to refinance or buy a home?

Also, I just don't buy into the whole hoopla of a mortage crisis. Why? Because the weird dancing figures are telling me that mortgage rates are at their lowest point in 10 years! The fact that they have been saying that for the last 5 years does not cause me any skepticism whatsoever.

Final beef: I understand having to put up with all the annoying ads on free websites. I don't like it, but I understand. But it really chaps my posterier to put up with them on the sites I am paying for--especially Comcast! As much as I pay those jokers per month, they don't need additional ad revenue. Free money for them at my nuisance. Alas, what I would not do for some competition in Nashville.

Have a sardonic day, everyone.

Somebody didn't eat his Cheerios this morning.

Actually, on the mortgage crisis, I've heard that it's a lot harder to qualify for a mortgage now, and that the banks are hesitant to lend money for fear they won't get it back. However, they sure do want you to use their credit cards. We went to make a deposit the other day, and the guy at the drive up window tried to get us to open up a new credit card account for our business. Crazy.

On the internet thing, I saw an ad on TV last night for AT&T cable television and internet service. I guess that's Comcast's competition.

Comcast is fighting it hard to not allow AT&T to compete. You will see those ads too.

Seems to be plenty of companies out their still offering severe debt as a lifestyle.
