Happy October

Happy October from Mexico Beach, Florida!

Our weather has been beautiful! Cooler in the evenings and warming up nicely in the afternoon!
I love this time of year! It's so pleasant to work in the yard and walk on the beach and not sweat the entire time!!!

I just sent out my monthly newsletter with the real estate stats for the month of September, so I am not going to reiterate, other than to say, its been slow!!!

My take on the market though----ITS GOING TO GET BETTER! Don't know when, but its going to!!!

Fishing is good! Chip had a good box of grouper and snapper just a few days ago! And its sooooooo much more pleasant when its not so blasted hot!!!

My take on the economic bail out: www.daveramsey.com

He proposes a plan called THE COMMON SENSE FIX. Can you imagine the government doing anything that exhibits common sense???

Anyway, check out Dave's plan.

Basically and in my own words:
#1. Insure those subprime mortgages. The lenders must re-write the mortgages to have a fixed rate. Hopefully, this will allow those homeowners to hold on!
#2. NO GOLDEN PARACHUTE FOR ANYONE!
#3. Remove Mark to Market accounting for awhile.
#4. REMOVE CAPITAL GAINS

Dave, of course, explains each of these propositions.
He also asks that we send this plan out to our senators and representatives (which I've already done this morning!)

Again, I am asking for donations for the alzheimer's fund---my sisters and I are doing a walk to raise fund for research for this horrible, horrible disease. My dad suffered from this for many years.
If you can contribute, I will forever be grateful!
