Off to an adventure in Oregon - 08/22/10 09:14 PM
Last summer my husband bought a motor cycle. This wasn't a snap decision by any means. I had dragged my feet on him buying one for several years. I had heard all the horror stories of accidents on motorcycles and I wasn't real sure I wanted my husband riding a cycle back and forth to work each day. But once I said yes, he was looking through Craig's list with a passion. It took him about 2 days to find a good "deal" and off he went to to check it out. Our neighbor a long time Goldwing fan went with him for (0 comments)
FHA Update - 08/14/10 02:55 PM
Good basic information about FHA changes coming soon. Via Doug Reynolds (Prudential): HUD has confirmed that after 10/04/2010 FHA guidelines will change & the monthly PMI (private mortgage insurance) factor will increase to .85% - .90% (from .55%) but the Up Front PMI (which can be financed back into the loan) will be reduced to 1.0% (from 2.25%).
These results will increase a buyers payment, so if you are a buyer whose going to just squeeze by with your payments for a price range, now is probably better to get a quality offer written. Otherwise, when the new guidelines hit, you'll have to look (0 comments)

Eating out in Salem, OR - 08/04/10 05:35 PM
My husband and I recently went on a date in Salem, OR and were amazed at several restaurants were were not aware of. One restaurant that we used to go to all the time was Jonathan's . We used to go there alot when we were younger and just got out of the habit. They are now located on High Street near the Elsinore. We had a lovely prime rib meal that was very relaxed and slow paced. Just the kind of Friday evening we were looking for. We even splurged and split a piece of mud pie, our favorite.
