U.S.inspect has been a home inspection company I have used over the years. Every year they have invited me to a wonderful party at the Real Estate Convention in Atlantic City New Jersey.

LOL Joke of the Day:UFO Crash of 1947 - 11/19/09 08:34 PM
July, 1947 Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years a go, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations. However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born: Albert A. Gore, Jr. Hillary Rodham John F. Kerry William J.

First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Extended Into 2010 - 11/07/09 10:23 AM
First Time Home-buyer Tax Credit Extended Into 2010! Plus...A New Tax Credit for Certain Existing Home Owners! It's official. President Obama has signed a bill that extends the tax credit for first-time home buyers (FTHBs) into the first half of 2010. This program had been scheduled to expire on November 30, 2009. In addition to extending the tax credit of up to $8,000 through June 30, 2010, the extension measure also opens up opportunities for others who are not buying a home for the first time. So Who Gets What? The program that has existed for FTHBs remains intact (4 comments)

She went to the cooler to take an aspirin. The boss approached her and said: ' Mary , I've never done this before, but I have to lay you or Jack (8 comments)
