Good news is my colon exam went well. LOL
    There is always a bright side to every story. Glad to hear your exam went well.

    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    anyone who owns a lot of stock in Apple, is much happier today than they were 3 years ago.

    even the Republicans.

    Thanks. I am not much on real estate investing. It was more a sentimental buy plus I needed a home for my family.

    To some extent I agree but the government you are under can and does make it easier or more difficult to succeed economically, obama has made it more difficult. I should say obama and the Dems in DC not just him alone.

    Real estate has put me where I am today financially speaking, I have lost lately but all my working life I bought homes and rented them out and during the boom I fixed up and flipped two houses. My wages have never been that great, I owe it all to real estate and it will come back in time.

    Hang in there. I have a buddy who owns a couple pieces of property and is about to start renting them out due to not being able to sell. Hope it works out for him.
