But fantasizing can include all aspects of life.   Just today I was fantasizing I was on the beach in Florida working from my cell phone and financing every client I met and closed them all in 5 days...

Texting and driving are DANGEROUS and DEADLY activities when coupled together!  One must wonder if we have gone too far with technology?  And if we need to have this technology.

Ok, with all the knowledge and experience of all of us at Active Rain, we should be able to come up with viable solutions to this housing crisis.   The $8000 first time home buyer credit has helped, but my fear is we will see foreclosures from this group of new buyers.  How many people are coming...
