Gene, This is just too much two days before Christmas. I hope you had enough time to get all your holiday things done.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

As for your comment to George, I'm sure your were a good boy all year. There is no need to ask your wife. We know what she would say, anyway.

As for next year, You better plan on getting a bigger share of the business because the Mortgage Bankers Assoociation says that the business will be down more than 35%. Ughh. Sorry for that.

So glad to hear that you enjoy them Ron Marshall ... hearing that's the "carrot" that keeps me posting them!

I'm hoping that 2015 proves to be much better than 2014 for ALL of us, Joe Petrowsky ... Here's to a great New Year ahead!

Same to you, my friend Roger D. Mucci!  Salute!

Bill Roberts ... I was hoping the newsletter could be something digested slowly during the down times of the Holidays!  As far as the predictions by large associations ... I avoid them.  I've never found them to directly reflect my business anyway.  I prefer to think positively as we move into the New Year and hope for brighter things ...

Merry Christmas .. Happy Holidays to you!
