Fresh Mouth, located in Central Ybor makes the best chicken philly in Tampa Bay. I am yet to stumble upon another restaurant that can rival this tasty sandwich. Served on a soft hoagie bun, the philly consists of piles of chopped chicken breast, grilled mushrooms, green peppers and onions, smothered with a load of provolone cheese that makes the sandwich even more decadent with flavor. If you are looking for a Great chicken philly, Fresh Mouth is your place.

Choosing The Right Contractor For Your FHA 203(K) Loan First and foremost your contractor should be properly licensed and insured. someone Located locally with valid credentials and a solid reputation is what you are looking for. Get bids from several contractors and make sure they are familiar with the FHA 203(K) Loan Processes. You will be working hand and hand with the person you hire so make sure you feel comfortable with them going in. Every project should have a detailed description of materials used along with a payment schedule. The contractor who is familiar with the 203(k) loan process will understand the requirements set forth by lenders for completion dates and payouts from previous jobs. Do not pay the contractor anything up front. Once the appraiser and I have had a chance...

1) Limited Funds. There is a certain amount allocated each year by congress and getting additional funds allocated in the 4th Quarter to off set shortfalls is HIGHLY unlikely giving the on-going battle over deficit spending. With the increased demand for FHA loans brought on by QRM (Quantitative Risk Management) which is looming and likely to happen there will be an increased demand for FHA Mortgages for their lower down payment requirements. Increased demand for something with limited supply forces prices higher. In short; the 4th Quarter of 2011 could see far less and far more expensive financing for those with less then 20% down. 2) Limited Funds.  The FHA does not have sufficient reserves so they increased the amount of their MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premiums) to increase reserves ex...

Many cigar aficionados, like me, buy and age their own cigars. There are cigar purveyors that age premium cigars for you for a price. Not all cigar enthusiasts have the time or the patience to age their cigars several years, I know I don't. I just can't wait....several years. There are "aging room" cigar firms out there, like www.cigar.com/agingroom.  When I find a premium cigar on special, I buy a few boxes and here is what I do. The cigar will absorb the favors around it.  I place 15 or 20 cigars each in different humidors that I have.  In each humidor I put a small cup...just a few ounces. And in these cups I pour Port wine, cognac or hazel-nut liquor. Place them in a dark cool closet... and wait. I cannot wait years....but a month or two and the cigar thanks on the favor of the item...
