I never really considered him to be a possibility but he hit his 443rd career HR last night, good for 38th all time. If he plays a few more seasons (he's 34 now), you're talking about 550 career HR's, good for 15th all time. ...

We are closing on next Tuesday, same day that my mortgage is automatically debited. I'm guessing the title company has already pulled my payoff and I can simply cancel my automatic payment for the month? I'm going to call her this morning, just curious to get you guys' thoughts....

We really like this house, enough to dip into our savings quite a bit. We can't do another $5,000 and with the way the negotiations went with the seller, he can't either.

2 of the top 10 prospects, Hood & Parker, just combined to go 6-24 and lost to Mercer.
Embiid is intruiging but raw and we weren't getting him anyway.
I think Wiggins will be legit but we weren't getting that high a pick.
Give me Jrue over Noel and the 10 pick all day...

| Money Talk|| Question about PMI on conventional loan - CQQ on 3/5/14 at 10:57 am|
Putting 5% down and I want to pay $4000 to avoid all PMI. Rate will go up to 4.5% and another bank is telling me they don't offer up front PMI but rate is 4.12% and paying $140/mo PMI. Even with the higher rates, I will save $100.
Question is, does PMI drop off? I heard last June they passed some...

We are going under contract on this house. I'm not a fan of the tv over the fireplace so I'd like to get someone to redo this built in. Curious which way you guys would go with it, who to use (carpenter or cabinet shop), and a rough $$ estimate it would cost.

I guess I'm in the minority here but I'm still a DD fan. He's acquired a lot of talent since he's gotten here. He's made 2 big mistakes (EG + Monty). I still think the Jrue trade was a win and Tyreke can still be a win with the right coach. By no means am I saying he's the perfect man for the job bu...

Got to be the only country where you can make $34 million by the time you're 28 by acting like this. I think he's entertaining and it's incredibly awesome that he's on the Knicks.
