    Good morning from MN, SirGeeding. I hope this finds you and yours well. I noticed that you had purchased some stock in an earlier post. You may want to buy up some stock in CountryWide. According to my buddy in real estate/finance, he says that CountryWide is going to make a comeback and it's going to be huge. Something to do with their having the service contracts for all of their loans. Just thought I would pass this little tip along to you and your readers. I'm buying in as much as we can afford.

    Have a safe and fun weekend,
