Toilet Dreams

Posted by heymoe on December 30th, 2007

Funny, yesterday I replaced the fill value in one of my toilets since the old one was not cutting off all the way causing the water in the tank to keep filling and going down the over flow. It was a slow leak so it went unnoticed for awhile and replacing the fill value was a pretty simple and cheap DIY job. Any ways, last night I had a dream that I was fixing a toilet but unsuccessfully this time and I had a pretty good river running down the stairs. Funny how the mind works.

5/1 ARM Reset

Posted by heymoe on December 29th, 2007

It looks like my 5/1 ARM mortgage is getting ready to reset on 2/1/2008. My current rate is 4.5% and it looks like they are going to jack up my rate by 2.625% to 7.125% which means my monthly payment will go up by ~$200. The funny thing is that as of today the average rate for a 30 year fixed is 5.91% but yet they seem to think it’s OK to adjust my rate to something that is 1.215% higher then the average. It’s almost as if they are telling me they don’t want my money and I should refinance and give someone else my money which it looks like I’ll be doing. Stupid banks.

Vindication: Toaster Oven

Posted by heymoe on December 24th, 2007

Cuisinart: TOB-175BCSome of you may know I have the tendency to do a lot of research when I’m in the market to buy something, especially if it’s not a limited use item, be it my car, my TV, my camera and even my toaster oven. Due to this I tend to get a lot of flack from my friends for doing all this research or for spending a “little” more for what I got instead of something cheaper. In any case I bought my Cuisinart TOB-175BC Toaster Oven almost five year ago and spent around two weeks researching before I pulled the trigger and bought one. Today while watching the 5pm news, they had a consumer report on toaster ovens and Boo Yah! the Cuisinart TOB-175BC is the top rated unit that excels at baking and makes very good toast even after almost five years. As for my experience with the Cuisinart TOB-175BC, I must say it’s a very versatile machine. I’ve cooked and baked a lot of different items in it and it’s so nice not having to heat up the big oven just to cook / warm up something small or just a few items. Now go and buy one for yourself 😛 hehe.

Santa Is On The Move

Posted by heymoe on December 24th, 2007

The NORAD Santa Tracker is up and running and as of this writing Santa is currently in Berlin, Germany. Several satellite videos of Santa have been captured and more to be added as he makes his way around the world. Below is the First Sitting video for this year.

I especially enjoyed seeing his visit the the International Space Station. Well I hope everyone was good this year so Santa won’t give you a lump of coal and I guess if you were bad this year, you can track him and try and mug him when he passes through your area.

For us in North Carolina, we don’t have to worry about the Santa getting arrested for bring Reindeer into the area since Gov. Easley lifted the Reindeer ban until Christmas morning. Easley also made a request to the FAA to provide Santa the proper clearance and aircraft separation on this trip through the state.

Suitable Day

Posted by heymoe on December 23rd, 2007

Today is cold, wet, dreary, gloomy, overcast, etc.. which seems to be quite fitting for how I’m feeling right now but at the same time I feel as if a weight has been lifted and I can now move on. Not quite how I pictured finishing off the year but that is life. On a positive note, one can say that the New Year brings a new beginning.
