Can we say looking for homes are a PITA!

Well I am in the market to look for a upgrade, of sorts, for a new home. I am in no hurry... which is one of the reasons why I am just checking the areas.

What am I looking for ... a larger house. The BF is staying for longer periods of time with our new pup. Mom has a bunch of stuff (being the pack rat she has always been) and I being the minimalist I am am starting to feel totally closed in.

I have a decent house.. but it is a tad small.. starter home type. It isn't bad actually, but with Mom being my loved pack rat..... I just don't know if I can take it anymore.

So with that said, I am starting the "Scanning". If you have ever bought a home everyone knows that is the first step. Keeping an eye out for prices and of course square footage. We have upgraded this house a bit but the area I am in sells quick and since the housing market here has settled down I think we will do well in selling this house. Now just hoping to get the "One".

Now, I have a question for anyone who has ever bought a new home (as that is one option), I would love any suggestions or just a good story on what you did.

I am also looking into Foreclosures. Anyone ever deal with any of those, I would appreciate any information on that.

If you are wondering... no, I am not going to buy a McMansion. Holy Geez!

I would rather go in with some information rather then blind and ignorant on new or forclosed houses.

New Palination blog is now up and running

For those who were wondering. It is up and running.

It is a slow start but we (yes a collect of many people) will have it running smoothly and without incident (keeping fingers crossed) on Sarah Palin's road to where ever it may lead.

Remember..... we are normal citizens standing WITH Sarah Palin. We do not try to specualte on where she is going, we will always try to keep it positive and it is for people who want a normal approach, not what the Media, PolitcalPundits and Talk Radio want you to believe.

Thanks... :)

Missouri Senator having a panel on 8(a) Native Corps... maybe we should call?

McCaskill is at it again. For a reminder you may want to click on this. But for a quickie.. McCaskill is the MO Senator looking into the 8(a) (aka Native Corps) due to a bill that was passed by Stevens years ago that the Alaskan 8(a) could receive more Federal Government contracts above the 5 million dollar mark. But only Alaska Native Corps were allowed this. The Native Corps are now joing a coalition called the Native 8 (a) Works.

Now why is this funny? McCaskill wants this to stop and is actually going to be doing a Senate panel concerning it on Thursday.

I would keep an eye on this twit. The only reason I say is that you can get a Federal Loan if you are “considered” a minority and have a 8(a) business. How is that? An 8(a) was for those who couldn’t get a loan via the regular banks due to discrimination, or lack of funds in accounts even if it was a good idea. You could be 65 a black woman and show the Federal Government your idea and possibly get a loan and a contract concerning it.

McCaskill is an idiot and she isn’t just hurting Alaska Natives, she will be hurting all who have a 8(a) status.

If you would like to get a hold of this woman:

Palination.... and the upcoming storm.

So, just because I support Palin.. means I am a Palin Bot, Palinista or something of a cult member. Interesting.. but I do think for myself.

Palination is not a cult. It is a group of citizens from across the globe watching the fray of the "Media, Pundits and others" bring down a person due to their character. Why is this acceptable? And why should anyone even try to bring someone good down, when there are many who are not even close? What does it take to get those out who aren't at least observing the laws? And why should we, or anyone for that matter, who uphold the law let those take us down to their level?

If you are noticing that as the Group spreads, it is getting more and more hate put upon it.

I have recently received a few tweets and emails on how I am such a BAD person for supporting Palin. I wonder if these people ever supported anything other then themselves in their lifetime.

Palination is going strong and a blog will be up by the 27th of July.

I say we wait and watch the storm brew.

You all know how to get a hold of me...

Palination of Specualtion and Analogies concerning Sarah Palin need to stop.

Speculation runs rampant. Not with just liberals, but with conservatives as well. It is easy to do, but it needs to cool down due to the overwhelming issue of "rumors" that could be a killer.

Alaskans are uneasy with the transition of opinion. This doesn’t mean they do not support the Governor in her endeavors, as per many a response via ADN. I means that we are concerned about the “Media” that has seemed to come up out of the blue again. Parachuting into Alaska for the second time in less then a year, is weighing heavy on many of us who are use to being alone and not have a National spot light.

When I say the transition of opinion, I am talking about the first wave of anger turned to frustration. It has hit most in a way that was not surprising. But then these people who were “shocked” seem to try to analyze the one thing they shouldn’t be doing. Trying to figure out where Sarah Palin’s road is going. No one expected her to resign, even though there were obvious hints that 85% didn’t pick up in any interviews.

Then there are the analogies of who she is like, such as equating her life with Roosevelt or Tiger Woods. That is one of the worst things that can be done with this woman. First, Roosevelt took land from States and made them “National” which his reasoning was to protect the beauty and to conserve. Now that we have more Federal land in which we can do nothing with (ANWR comes to mind), it makes Sarah Palin look as though she may take something away from the people, which could be more harmful then not putting her under the guise of Roosevelt. Of course the Tiger Woods analogy comes up quite a bit. But what everyone seems to forget on that is that he wasn’t born a natural. He was trained since he was extremely young and became the professional now due to that upbringing.

Sarah Palin has had to work for everything she has ever done. This is not saying that Roosevelt or Woods haven’t. But Roosevelt was a different era and Woods being trained from the start isn’t how Sarah was raised and the era of fundamental rule to conserve and reap what you sow is gone, and has been for decades.

Sarah Palin, raised on family values, hard work ethics (such as having to garden and hunt and fish for food and knowing a job can not provide all), having good Christian values for moral stability throughout her life. These are what many in the United States understand and hope to base their lives on. As some State are not set up the way Alaska is, it is even more profound that an Alaskan Myth of Living has been circulated around, it gives more respect to those who live up here and do understand what Sarah has had to do with her Family through out her lifetime.

As part of the Palination, I ask you to help. We need to not totally stop the speculations and analogies, but to have those who continually start them to calm down and see that it could hurt her later down the road. Let Sarah be Sarah. Tell them to watch for the next few months on the progress of what could happen. And of course try to be civil about it, even though we all know that liberals and conservatives are passionate about Sarah in any degree.

Remember, as the “Media” goes on, we are here to make things right. Not to keep the flames up and start a forest fire of rumors.

Does this sound like a plan for you?
