re: What type of stuff would keep somebody from getting a security clearance? - sfdurst
It really depends on the level of clearance needed. There is a huge difference between a Secret and Top Secret Clearance investigation. Also a TS Clearance may require if needed a Lifestyle Polygraph. A Secret clearance will basically confirm who you are, where you are from and that you are not...

re: How to determine if home will not qualify for insurance/ mortgage? - sfdurst
Sounds about right, the FHA inspection was not terribly through. From my understanding the FHA inspection is a livability inspection. Good luck, hope it works out either way for you....

re: How to determine if home will not qualify for insurance/ mortgage? - sfdurst
I will say the FHA did not do a structural inspection on the house I sold, but there were also no red flags. Is the ceiling sagging? I assume these are noticeable on a casual walk though. ...

re: How to determine if home will not qualify for insurance/ mortgage? - sfdurst
I am not in the RE industry. The last house I sold went FHA, during the appraisal the appraiser basically did a safety and sanitation inspection. They looked at faucets and I needed to replace a leaky shower valve seal. They also require doors on all bedrooms and bathrooms. They look for bro...

re: Help with flights - sfdurst
[quote]The only benefit to flying in and out of New Orleans is that on southwest they have nonstop flights and better timing. Southwest looks like it's $101 on the way there and $126 for a 6:40pm-7:20pm MCO-New Orleans flight on Sunday night July 2nd. Total is $227 if you do Nola-Orlando[/quote] ...

re: Help with flights - sfdurst
Parking is ~$15 a day at MSY if your trip is 7 days $15*7 = $105 I get reimbursed $.53 a mile LFT-MSY ~150mi x2 = 300 miles .53x300 = $159 round trip Using previous posters flight cost. MSY = $178+159+105 = $442 LFT = $334 Just off cost, looks like LFT would be a better option. ...

re: Help with flights - sfdurst
The price is a judgment call on your part. If I need to travel with a definite timeline MSY (firm work appointments or personal travel); if it is a standard business trip (I will be in sometime on XXXday) I will fly LFT just for convenience. LFT is basically a crap shoot with limited options f...
