The similarities between Santa and System Admins.  You can read the following sentences with either Santa or System Admin!1. Santa is bearded, corpulent, and dresses funny.2. When you ask Santa for something, the odds of receiving what you wanted are infinitesimal.3. Santa seldom answers your mail. (or email - as the case may be)4. When you ask Santa where he gets all the stuff he's got, he says, "Elves make it for me."5. Santa doesn't care about your deadlines.6. Your parents ascribed supernatural powers to Santa, but did all the work themselves.7. Nobody knows who Santa has to answer to for his actions.8. Santa laughs entirely too much.9. Santa thinks nothing of breaking into your $ HOME (think computer code here) 10. Only a lunatic says bad things about Santa in his presence. ☺ MattT...

First Premier has issued a new credit card with a  79.9% APR to conform to new Credit card legislation which is going into effect in Feb. 2010. First Premier's old credit card had a $250 credit limit and 1st year fees totaling $256.  This old card would be a violation of the new CARD Act (which has a 25% fee cap) so First Premier has restructured their card.  The new card has a $300 credit limit and $75 in first year fees (right at the 25% cap) and a 79.9% APR! Not sure where to send your clients to get the best credit cards for building credit?  Send them to me!  I stay on top of the credit card offers and weed out those that are bad deals (like First Premier). ☺ MattToll Free: 888-NCFIXER (623-4937)Toll Free Fax: 888-FAX-4020 (329-4020)Local: 860-282-6181330 Roberts Street 4th FloorEa...

  The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) is at 4.375% for a 30 Year Fixed for the forth consecutive week.  This is the lowest that I can remember the CHFA Interest Rate being at, and the fact that it is at that rate for a forth consecutive week is amazing. The rate gets even better if the Borrower is a Teacher, Military Veteran, Buyer purchasing in a Targeted Area, or a Police Officer in a participating town.  If a Borrower is in one of these special categories they will receive and additional .125% to .250% off the rate. The CHFA Program is for First Time Homebuyers, but existing Homeowners who are purchasing in a Targeted Area, also qualify for this program, and an additional .250% off of the rate.  That would make their Interest Rate 4.125% on a 30 Year Fixed Loan. The CHF...

During late spring one year, a blonde was trying out her new boat. She was unable to have her boat perform, travel through water, or do any maneuvers whatsoever no matter how hard she tried.After trying for over three days to make it work properly, she decided to seek help. She putted the boat over to the local marina in hopes that someone there could identify her problem.Workers determined that everything from the engine to the outdrive was working perfectly on the topside of the boat. So, a puzzled marina employee jumped into the water to check underneath the boat for problems. Because he was laughing so hard, he came up choking on water and gasping for air. Under the boat, still strapped in place securely, was the boat trailer. ☺ MattToll Free: 888-NCFIXER (623-4937)Toll Free Fax: 88...

One day, while a blonde was out driving her car, she ran into a truck.The truck's driver made her pull over into a parking lot and get out of the car.He took a piece of chalk and drew a circle on the pavement. He told her to stand in the middle and not leave the circle.Furious, he went over to her car and slashed the tires.The blonde started laughing.This made the man angrier so he smashed her windshield.This time the blonde laughed even harder.Livid, the man broke all her windows and keyed her car.The blonde is now laughing hysterically, so the truck driver asks her what's so funny.The blonde giggles and replies, "When you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle three times!" ☺ MattToll Free: 888-NCFIXER (623-4937)Toll Free Fax: 888-FAX-4020 (329-4020)Local: 860-282-6181330 Robert...

A blonde and a redhead met in a bar after work for a drink, and were watching the 6 O'clock news. A man was shown threatening to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The blonde bet the redhead $50 that he wouldn't jump, and the redhead replied, "I'll take that bet!"Anyway, sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead the $50 she owed. The redhead said "I can't take this, you're my friend"The blonde said "No! A bet's a bet".So the redhead said "Listen, I have to admit, I saw this on the 5 O'clock news, so I can't take your money"The blonde replied "well, so did I, but I never thought he'd jump again!" ☺ MattToll Free: 888-NCFIXER (623-4937)Toll Free Fax: 888-FAX-4020 (329-4020)Local: 860-282-6181330 Roberts Street 4th FloorEast Hartford, CT 06108 credit repair company

  Well we lucked out.  I wrote a post yesterday as our first snow fall for the 2009-1010 Winter Season was arriving.  We were expecting 1-3 inches here in Middletown, Connecticut, and we lucked out in being on the lower end of that range. I love New England and one of the things that I love most is our unpredictable weather, and this past week was an excellent example of that.  During the beginning of the week the temperature was mild and in the 40's and 50's, on Friday it was about 70 degrees depending on where you were in the State.  And on Saturday the temperature was in the low 30's and on the ground. This is New England, and if you don't like the weather right now, just await a few hours and it can very well change to something more to your liking.   ******************************...
