[quote]Long story short, I found an online lender (FFSi, First Financial Services Inc) who offered us a 30 year fixed, zero points, for 3.99% and they would also pay the lender fees. On the other hand, the guy we originally sat down with gave us 4.375% with $1,300 in lender fees. [/quote] I refin...

Patara Elephant farm in Chiang Mai is worth the trip to Thailand alone. I also highly recommend A Lot of Thai cooking school in Chiang Mai if you are looking to do something along those lines. I'd second that your time is better spent elsewhere than Phuket, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it too. Koh...

What variables are involved in creating an exposure and why you would want to control each one. To put it way too simply - aperture controls depth of field (background blu...
