Buy a home in 2011, or you may miss out!

It amazes me, how many people continue to rent when the best deals of the decade are out there.  Don’t they know renting is like throwing your money into a black hole?  No tax deductions, no future investment opportunities, no stability, no gain. 

If you have a decent credit score, have a little money saved, and are currently renting, now is the time to call a lender to see if you qualify.   I know many are waiting for the bottom to drop more, but the interest rates may go up, or your favorite home may be gone, if you continue to wait.  In the current market, where home prices and interest rates are incredibly low, there is no reason why people should continue to rent.  Unless of course, they are not in the position to purchase. 

It would be a shame if you waited so long, that you missed out.  So call a lender today to see if you qualify for a home purchase, they may suprise you!

IS CALL OF DUTY for Kids?

Call of Duty Rocks!

I have been off a full week, and got completely hooked on my new Call of Duty game.  During my long hours of playing the game, it made me realize what many kids are doing in their spare time now.  With the on-online option, I ended up playing with many of our younger generation.  They are so excited to be involved in war, and seem addicted to playing, which may be trouble.

Most have headphones which allows us all to hear them during gameplay.  It amazes me what they say during the breaks, and it typically has nothing to do with the game.  Some sound as young as ten years old, and talk about sex and other very “grown-up” things.  They curse, eat, and make very inappropriate comments, which makes me wonder where there parents are.  Do they know what they are saying?  Why would they have bought a child under 18 years old this game?

If you  purchased a Call of Duty game for your kids, spend an hour in their room, and see if it was the right choice.  I can assure you, this may make you think twice about your decision.  It really is not appropriate for kids, and whatever happened to them playing outside or with their friends.

One final note; I still consider it the best game of all time, but just not for kids.
