I hate it when I don’t find time to post during the course of a week, and so I have back-to-back Links Back posts on display. This week was one of those weeks. Hubby was out of town, I didn’t get my workouts in, I tried to donate blood and they got the wrong vein – aaaaargh!
But the big news of the week was the stimulus package and what it does/doesn’t include. Warning: slight rant approaching which might betray my political leanings –
Many buyers wants to know if they’ll get money back in the form of a tax credit if they buy a house and if so, how much? and when will it go into effect? And they’re not doing anything until they know. Have we become a nation of people who won’t make a move until we know what the government is going to do for us? I find that reprehensible. If you have found the house that’s right for you and you can afford it, BUY IT, before someone else who ISN’T on the fence snags it instead. And then, if you’re the kind of person whose been waiting to see what the government will do, you’re probably going to blame the government because you lost out on the house you wanted. For crying out loud – buy the house already.
Thanks for indulging me.
Now, all links below refer to the much vaunted stimulus package as it progressed from its save-the-world heights on Sunday to its current golly-gee-it-better-work status.
There might be some repeated quotes in there. One of my favorite things to do with an author like Anne Rivers Siddons is count the number of times she uses the words ‘miasma’ or ‘pentimento’ in her books. Count how many times they use ‘major milestone’ and ‘recovery’ in the stories.
Have a great week!
