Having just come back from the local new shopping center (St. John's Town Center, Jacksonville, FL), I have to share my thoughts with you. The holiday season is about giving, and being nice and thoughtful to each other, not about snagging the premier parking spot, or five seats at the bar when you are the only one there.Please allow the time to get to the shopping center, and take a deep breath when someone cuts you off, or gets "your" spot - we are all really trying to accomplish the same thing: peace and happiness.It's the holidays - let's be nice to each other!Happy Holidays to all!

  Are you a renter, wanting to fire your landlord for good? Or a seller wanting to sell and perhaps, move up or down size? I bet, you've been listening to the media and you wonder if this is a good time to buy or should you just wait? No one has a crystal that will tell us what the future holds for real estate, so let's just take a look at how things are right now:  1. The rates are good, as long as you qualify. 2. Home prices are coming down. 3. Due to the higher inventory levels, you have more choices. 4. Due to the mortgage crisis, lenders have tighten their credit guidelines. A buyer who qualified for a mortgage two years ago or even a year ago, may not qualify now. Have the prices hit bottom yet? I don't think so. Should you wait to buy until they do? That depends on you and your ...

  You've seen the ads...."Credit repair 100% guarantee" "We can remove charge offs, bankruptcies, foreclosure" The list goes on and on. If you are credit challenged and you want to buy a car or a house, you may wonder if those companies are for real.  They are real and they want to take your hard earned money. Don't get me wrong, there are legit credit repair companies that can help you, but if they tell you they can remove a bankruptcy when in fact that bankruptcy is completely accurate on your credit report, they are lying. Here is an excerpt from The Federal Trade Commission's website in regard to credit repair companies: "No one can legally remove accurate and timely negative information from a credit report. The law allows you to ask for an investigation of information in your file...

Well, do I have a place for you! It's called Chamblin Bookmine and it is my absolutely favorite book store. I love any book store really, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble and the list goes on, but the difference with Chamblin's is, not only do they carry new books, they sell tons & tons of used books as well as hard to find. I just went there last week and I purchased a book that looked brand new. If purchased new, I would have paid $19.95, but I only paid $9.95! Now, that's a sweet deal.   If you would like to take a visit their address is: 4551 Roosevelt Blvd Jacksonville, FL 32210. Oh! I almost forgot, they also sell audio books and videos too! Happy book hunting!
