Yesterday, after my weekly accountability coffee meeting, we ran into an old friend. Naturally, the conversation quickly turned to the market. It started with talk of the rates dropping. In the past, it would have seemed strange to have followed talking about interest rates under 6% with him bringing up how bad the real estate market is. We turned the topic around quickly. The market is how you look at it. It is Such an Incredible time of opportunity. Interest rates are low. The supply of homes is high. The prices are reasonable.

Did not get to blog tonite since I was watching the LSU game. It was nice to beat the medias favorite team in Notre Dame. They had all the all Americans but we were the better team tonite. As long as LSU does not turn the ball over they could beat almost any one. It was the 7th win in a row in 2006 to end the year. It was Notre Dames 9th bowl loss in a row. There is a reason for that. Does anyone know why this is?                                                                           LSU Chimes on the campus in Baton Rouge
