Fishing & Pool: My Two College Majors
Fish Quote of the Day: “Bragging may not bring happiness, but no man having caught a large fish goes home through an alley.” – Author Unknown
Did’ja Know: America once issued a 5-cent bill during the Civil War to combat the coin shortage. (wish they could do something about my bill shortage…)
Wuss’up This Week: Every day economic reports are released that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today we’ve got… nothing. But tomorrow is a big day – Durable Goods orders, Jobless Claims, and Pending Home Sales Report. Not much tomorrow with the exception of Janet Yellen receiving an award from Harvard (which is one of the schools I applied to even though I had a C average; pretty sure I gave the admissions peeps some good laughs).
Interest rates remain… pretty boring. A 30yr fixed is still in the mid-to-upper 3s, with ARM rates about .50% less. As usual rates will vary based on type of home, equity in the home, credit score, and if you can make any of these pool trick shots.
Don’t forget to remember: Any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive ALL lender fees – a $1,050 savings! Grab yourself a cup of instant karma and pass this info onto any friends, family, coworkers, or people celebrating their metric birthdays that can use this gift.
Fish Quote of the Day 2: “Teach a man to Google how to fish and he’ll wind up looking at fish porn for the rest of his life.” – @IGotSmarts
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Tina Fey last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win Confetti High-Fives? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “It was this week in 1996 that the movie I starred in was blown out of the number one spot it had held since it’s May 10th release. My co-star is a good actor who has been in other box office smashes – including a movie that takes place in space, and another that takes place in water. I love movies and I’ll keep making them, because when I think of a TV career I get mad!”
