    Buying Furniture

    Well, it's about time we upgrade the living room upholstered furniture and got a new dining set. Does anyone here have any opinions on upholstered furniture quality? I'm not looking for the top of line, as I'm not sure with a 4 year old that would be a wise investment. But I also don;t want...

    Has anyone refinanced lately to take advantage of the low rates? We did a HARP no cost refi at WF bank last year and I'm considering doing another refi. You can only refi at no cost once per HARP (which allows no income verification, limited paperwork, no appraisal, etc.). Since I will have...

    Doggie Dentist

    Now what do you think?

    For all the newbies that were flipping out waiting on results (which came at a record pace this test cycle), now how important does all that belly-aching seem? Are any states still waiting?

    Bizness Card Initials
