May 10th 2012 6:16PM Empress, not necessarily so. I'm in the process of a refi with my bank, with closing in a couple of weeks. I had been told I was approved in 2 days after I applied. Very little info was needed and I not only was current, but always pay more than the amount due. My son and daughter both have recently done a refi, as well. All of us had interest rates in the 5% on the old loan and will now be at 4%. I didn't want to have escrow on my new loan (have never had one) and the bank told me I would need it on the new loan. I was not interested in a reduction of interest if it were going to raise my payments with having the escrow. I continued to contact the bank for a couple of months and they have finally agreed to give me the loan without having the escrow. Don't give up, there is hope out there for us people that do pay our payments on time. Even call banks other than your present one.
Jul 15th 2011 3:04PM Speak only of your own bride George. Just because you got a "used" one, doesn't mean ALL women are used goods. It doesn't speak volume of yourself either, if that is the way you treat a lady.
Jul 15th 2011 11:55AM Angel, Where did you read that anyone was trying to get a profit from their gown? Nor did I read where the brides had to buy hugely expensive dresses to impress everyone. It wasn't in this article that I just read. Why keep a dress....just what is one going to use it for, other than maybe tearing it apart for material to put in some other project. Though special at the time, it becomes like any other piece of clothing one buys....you no longer wear it, it doesn't fit any longer, or is just out of style. Certainly takes up a lot of closet space. This lady had a good idea and I hope all those brides wanting to sell their dress finds a new home for it and all will win.

Jun 23rd 2011 9:27AM You are oh so right, baba. Funny though with her statement of not ever dating before. Didn't date, but has a tribe of kids....what a concept!!!
May 13th 2011 9:25AM I had hoped the same, but I've now lost admiration for the woman. Boot her out. No excuses for not paying taxes.
May 13th 2011 8:50AM Are you for real, Norene? You don't think that she would be aware of such a deduction.
Mar 20th 2011 12:01PM My thoughts went to AFHV's as well, but not as a good thing. I have watched it on occasion, but fail to see the humor in much of it. Just another thing that parents will put their children through, hoping to make a buck....pimping their kid out. I see people laugh at things that are not funny, but then again, I have been to the studios of such programs and they hold up cards to laugh. I've seen clips where parents are taping a clip where they should have been disciplining the child instead. I find it a show that I care not to watch, but we all have our opinions. The parents should have put this child to bed. A quite simple task to make the child more comfortable. Look at this clip again and tell me you really think the child looked rested and in a place she should have been. If you think so...I'm glad you weren't my Dad.
Mar 20th 2011 10:37AM Don, lighten up. I agree though, that parents have taken snap shots (takes only a second and hopefully not with a stick of some sort in it's hand) of kids falling asleep, but it clearly is evident, that this child needs to be in bed, rather than becoming a star for the parents entertainment. Look at her neck and tell me that is okay. I do find that parents today, will make the most stupid videos of their kids. That of one child hitting another, a kid writing on a wall, themself, or another person with crayon or lipstick, and the list goes on with taping something that should be stopped. How can a child be taught something is wrong, when the parent is laughing and taping it? Can't anyone except responsibility any more? And parents wonder why their kids grow up to be unruly.
Mar 20th 2011 10:23AM What the heck are these parents thinking, with making a clip of this poor child bobbling her head around? It's very obvious, the girl is extremely tired. The popcycle should be taken out of her hand and put to bed, where she belongs. I found nothing funny about this. Maybe not abusive (though the danger of the stick jabbing in her eye, as her head does wobble around as one person mentioned, is possible), but certainly not responsible parenting. Shame on them to find entertainment out their child's need for sleep.
