I really did.  I intentionally did not turn on the TV to watch the news, I did not spend a lot of time on-line trolling for information relating to foreclosures, but.. I took two calls yesteday from home because I closed my office for the holiday.  I know, I know, it was a minor holiday in a lot ...
