  1. So is that why people are abandoning CA in droves?! Because they don't worry about prices?? I'm one of those who left California. I moved to Atlanta, GA almost a year ago, and I miss CA terribly!!!! We left for "quality of life" reasons. We wanted to purchase a nice house, in a nice area, cut down our commute and have the same disposable income (if not more). Well, our salaries are comparable to what we took home in Cali, we purchased a beautifully built home (new build) and we have cut down on our traveling time and distance to work --- BUT, I am still a Californian at heart
  2. Jack, yes the majority are hard pulls. Thanks all for the breakdowns and encouragement. I look forward to providing you all with positive updates!
  3. Long story short. I have been working on cleaning up my credit for more than a year. I have been fortunate to obtain about 6 or 7 new credit cards, NFCU (2), Cap One (2), Hooters and other store cards. Last month, I added a mortgage to the fold. No lates on anything. Olld collections have been paid (more than a year ago) -- 2 outstanding, but are due to drop off early next year. Things are progressing, but my credit scores are SOOOO low. EX: 590 EQ: 610 TU: 618 . I will admit that my utilization is high. I am doing a debt snowball method to pay it down... but I'm just gett
  4. Blank for me too. I just tried calling the number in the previous post -- it's a NO-GO... automated voice on the other end. Hope they'll resend soon.
  5. This letter will be sent to CEO of CompuCredit David Hanna. It is a protest of the $100.00 AF applied to my account and other accounts like mine. Your input is appreciated. Dear Mr. Hanna, I want to congratulate you on the success of your corporation, CompuCredit. It is truly a remarkable achievement to develop, market and grow a business such that you have. I would like to introduce myself. My name is XXXXXXXXX, I am a cardholder and I have been a customer of yours since 2005. I have over the years, despite paying what is due, and perhaps more, have failed to get my card balance
  6. I have a couple of crushes... Adam Carolla - I love his wit and sarcastic nature Barack Obama - I love him because he represents that anything in this world is possible.
  7. The black team are a bunch a babies. Buck up! Jillian was completely out of line. Allison is only doing her JOB! She gets paid to ask questions. When it comes to individuals, each player is on their own. Stop crying ladies and suck it up. Do your best and it will be rewarded. Keep complaining and it will get you where it got them - on the chopping block. Bye Brittany! Bye Maggie!
  8. Hi, I had a similar problem with my son - with his reading. It took a lot of hard work, late nights and tears, but he pulled through and is now in the 5th grade and reading at a 6th grade level. I broke down and sought out counseling. His doctor prescribed Adderall, because he was diagnosed with ADD (not the hyperactivity disorder). My son would complete his homework, but "forget" to turn it in. He would space out in class and was not able to focus. I was reluctant at first, but I felt what I needed to do what was best for him. I went through the same things as you, wondering how I h
  9. I'm glad someone else thinks this is silly too. I feel sorry for those that are excited about the prospect of receiving a check... makes me sick!
  10. Could it be that you're a bit overbearing? Or perhaps your demenaor is a little off putting. I kinda find it hard to believe that in your work setting, the person would use the word, "never" when training someone. Perhaps it may help to look inward and wonder why the comments are directed at you and not anyone else. Just a thought.
  11. I'm sort of in the same boat as you are. I'm moving to Atlanta soon (shooting for April) and I've been applying for jobs since about November of last year. I've gotten some hits and have a couple of interviews set up. I think it all depends on the field that you're in. You can include when you would be available to start in your coverletter. I've found that employers are willing to work with you. Something else to consider is that they may not have an immediate job opening that suits your availability, but they could keep you in mind for something else that comes up in the near f
  12. It's like they're expecting the car to get repo'd. Well wishes to both you and your daughter.

    Congrats! Hoping to join you in '08!
  14. I resolve to not incur overdraft protection fees. I've probably paid about $2,000 in fees over the last year. I'm going to try my damnest to pay down my line of credit and my First National credit card by the end of the year as well. Happy New Year all!
  15. That's terribly short sighted to assume that the adoptive parents mistreated her. I'd like to point out there might have been an adverse effect on the family by having the daughter in their household. There are other people who are probably suffering - such as the parents - how hard must it be to not be emotionally close to a child that you love, or the other siblings? What a terrible heart wrenching decision that they must have struggled with and ultimately decided what was in the best interest for all involved. Children are born with emotional disorders, they had the child for
  16. Truly what comes around goes around... I'm happy for all of you!
  17. http://news.aol.com/entertainment/music/mu...126101509990001 Jackson 5, With Michael, Plan Reunion Nov. 26) - The Jackson 5 want you back. Jermaine Jackson says he and his brothers are plotting a reunion tour, with brother Michael set to play a part. The bass guitarist and singer told BBC 6 Music that "sometime in 2008," fans can expect a full scale reunion of the group that scored big in the 1970's with "ABC," "I Want You Back" and "Never Can Say Goodbye." The famed group's last album came in 1989, five years after their "king of pop" sibling left to become one of the biggest r

Joseph Miller and Nikki Reed were charged Saturday with burning their 1-year-old son while giving him a bath. But they are also under investigation in the death of one of their other children: a baby who relatives say had been missing for seve
  19. That sometimes genius is misunderstood... Okay, maybe she didn't use "genius", but she did say something about "being great", but I can't really recall, because I tuned out (she has the tendency to ramble)... Anyhoo, she also told me to "Get over it!" I'm over it. Let the bashing begin! I can handle it!
  20. You're probably right, it was a little attention whorish of me...
  21. No one said anything about "not liking dissenting posts." What do I have to be careful about posting? I thought that was the entire point in posting, to post your opinion. What else am I supposed to post, what others think? Thanks for the good luck wishes, I'll take it in the spirit in which it was intended.
