Never Own Your Home Outright.
Never Own Your Home Outright. Instead, Get a Big 30-year Mortgage, and Never Pay It Off — Regardless of Your Age and Income
Well, according to this guy, I did EVERYTHING wrong. It's fun to do everything wrong sometimes, though. I paid it off today. All of it. My home is now free and CLEAR. The only thing that even slightly marred the experience was when I marched in, cash in hand, to make the final payments. The nice young gal behind the desk asked my name, since I had forgotten (of course!) to bring the account number along. Strangely, I was not in the computer anywhere. Hmmmm....turns out I don't exist. "You should have given me your husband's name right away--everything is in his name" was her only comment. Figures. I've been writing --and backing up-- the checks for over twenty years, but as far as the world is concerned I'm still the "widdle wifey at home", lol. Do I hear Bob Seger's "Feel like a Number" playing in the background?? I don't care. It's done. It's DONEDONEDONEDONE!!!! Bring it on, ye equity-loan-spammers, ye home-improvement-mailbox-stuffers!!! <:-P<:-P<:-P<:-P

Buried in schoolwork, but still around... How the heck did I do this when I carried a full load of classes? Oh yeah... I was only working 30-hour weeks back then, not 48 hour weeks. And no business. And no union job. No wonder it was easier then...sigh. Yup, and still had time for a beer now and then. Those were called weekends.

When I'm working on night shift, at least one of our two-ways is usually turned to scan the emergency channels. Friday and Saturday nights are one 10-55 after another, sometimes 20 or 30 of them in one evening. Isn't there *any*thing else to do up here? movies? anything? One crash leads to four OWIs
TOWN OF MILTON-It's not very often that two drunken drivers are arrested after a crash. Or three. Or four. But that was the case early Sunday morning on Highway 26 just north of John Paul Road, according to the Rock County Sheriff's Department. After two drunken drivers collided, a third drunken driver crashed into them, and a fourth later attempted to drive through the crash scene. "It was a heck of night," third shift patrol Sgt. Josh Lund said.
