Nudity Quote of the Day: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” – Mark Twain
Did’ja Know: In Illinois the city with the highest listing price is Deerfield with an average of $552,918. The least expensive? Rockford at $174,566. The city with the cheapest average home in the Midwest (four bedroom, two bathroom) is Detroit at $68,007. The most expensive in the country is Newport Beach, CA at $1,826,348 (which is $1,826,000 more than I have in my checking account now).
Who Wants Cash? Go to cashdash.net. This is a website designed by the Illinois treasurer that can help you recover any money or valuables owed to you by the State of Illinois. Plug in your name and see if there are lost IRS funds, unclaimed money, long lost uncles that left you in their wills, etc. Any money you do recover, don’t forget to give me my finder’s fee cut of 70%. Thanks in advance.
Dates and Rates: The most important economic reports coming out this week all center around inflation: Thursday October 14th – PPI (producer price index), Friday October 15th – CPI (consumer price index), and CSI (crime scene investigation). If they show inflation under control the rates will stay low. If inflation is starting to kick in it will not bode well for rates. And where are rates? 30yr fixed remains in the low 4s and ARMS about a point lower. Don’t forget to let your coworkers know that any loan over 240k I will refinance for free!
Nudity Quote of the Day 2: “Men can sit through the most pointless, boring movie if there’s even the slightest possibility that a woman will take her top off.” – Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Seinfeld.
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to all of you who correctly guessed Alanis Morrisette last week. Who wants to be entered into a drawing to win a Slinky this week? All of you, huh? I thought so. Okay, just email me the correct answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “On Friday I turn 68. My brother is a famous actor, director and producer. He’s the one that inspired me to get into acting. In my first break – a shampoo commercial – I played a plain girl with stringy hair opposite Farrah Fawcett and her bouncy hair. From there I made some regular sitcom appearances which led me to costar in my own sitcom (’76-’83). From there I started directing movies and struck gold twice with Tom Hanks. Directing is my true passion; I wear my heart on my sleeve for all my movies. For my sitcoms some may say I wear my letters on my shirts.”
