Man it was raining hard out today and on my way back home I was waiting on the Turnpike to exit off onto Commerical Blvd. While waiting there I got hit from behind, so hard that it pushed me so far ahead. Luckily I was a good distance from the car in front of me or I would have slammed into it as well. I was so shaken up. Out of nowhere this happens! Luckily as well I had my seat belt on or I would have hit the steering well. I got out to look at the damages, but the medical in me went to see if the driver in the car was ok. He turned out to be ok, but scared like I was. We called the police and waited there for them. As I was waiting I was dealing with clients who called me on a contract that we wrote up and having to make sure we make a great offer. Thanks goodness we agreed on what t...

So last week I wrote a post that Citigroup and Wells Fargo were going to court over Wachovia. Well it looks like Wells came out on top with the negoiations. But that is not stopping citigroup from taking Wells to court over it. Seems they are still quite pissed off about this deal. Who would blame them? Here is a small clip from the article NEW YORK (AP) _ Wells Fargo emerged as the apparent victor in the battle for control of Wachovia bank Thursday night, after rival suitor CitigroupWhile Citigroup said it plans to seek $60 billion in damages for breach of contract, it has decided not to challenge the Wells Fargo-Wachovia deal in court.Wells Fargo said late Thursday it had ended talks with Citigroup and was moving ahead to acquire all of Wachovia's banking and other operations. It said...

Looks like the federal reserve is having to step in to see who gets Wachovia Wells Fargo or Citigroup. The sagga continues. NEW YORK - Wachovia, Citigroup and Wells Fargo, in consultation with the Federal Reserve, have agreed to a standstill of all formal litigation activity. The agreement is scheduled to end at noon Wednesday. Federal Reserve officials Monday were negotiating with Wells Fargo and Citigroup in the hope of getting the parties to come to some sort of agreement. Early last week, Citigroup agreed to buy Wachovia's banking assets for $2.1 billion in a deal brokered by the FDIC. On Friday, Wells Fargo said it agreed to buy the bank for $15.1 billion without any government support. Citigroup Inc. said Monday it filed a complaint in New York Supreme Court against Wachovia, Well...

I'm sure you are aware that Bank of America bought out Countrywide months ago. Well they have agreed to work with some home owners here in Florida with theree mortgage loans. Here is a quick look at what they are doing. Now if you would like to read the whole article you can go here. More than 57,000 Florida homeowners stand to benefit from a landmark settlement reached Monday between Florida and Countrywide Financial Corp., the giant subprime mortgage lender. Florida residents could be in line for nearly $1 billion in total financial relief. Most of that will be money saved on modified loans, officials say. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum sued Countrywide this summer, accusing the lender of putting borrowers into mortgages they couldn't afford or approving loans with interest ra...

Looks like these two banks are heading to court for Wachovia. One believes they should have it over the other. Here is a short clip from the article. NEW YORK (AP) _ The fight over control of Wachovia intensified Saturday, as a judge temporarily agreed to block the sale of the bank to Wells Fargo, Citigroup announced in a news release.State Supreme Court Justice Charles Ramos issued the order blocking the sale of Wachovia Corp., which Wells Fargo & Co. had agreed to purchase in a $14.8 billion deal.Citigroup Inc. accused Wells Fargo of trying to cut off its earlier takeover offer of Wachovia's banking operations for $2.1 billion in a deal struck with the assistance of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. On Friday, four days after that deal was struck, Wells Fargo said it was buying Wach...

There are some new speeding laws that went into effect as of October 1. There are a few things you need to know before you head out. Here you go:   Brazen motorcyclists and drivers now will be clobbered with a fine in the four figures — $1,000 and up — if they get busted for excessive speeding on Florida roads. And for the bikers, there are additional new rules, including an absolute ban on "popping wheelies," or lifting their front wheel off the pavement. Under a Florida law that took effect this month, drivers face a $1,000 fine for going 50 mph over the speed limit. Get caught a second time and you'll fork over $2,500 and lose your license for a year. You'll pay $5,000 for the third offense and forfeit your license for 10 years. On the second day the new law went into effect, and usi...

Now I am not one to write about politics nor will I get into a political discussion. What I will ask is if you are registered to vote? We all now that now is a time for a change, and whether you are voting for McCain or for Obama. I believe it is very important that you vote! If you are not sure where you can go to register or if you are and don't know where your voting polls are this is the site where you can do both! Now if you are looking to register you need to do it before Oct 6 which is next week Monday! So head over and register, you vote is just as important as the next!!!

Two weeks ago I went to an Open House for my daughters school and thought it was wonderful. While the teacher was discussing what there daily routine was and what they do in Centers. One of the centers was computers. She did complain that she has two computers but only has one working, the other can't get on the internet.  She has been trying to get it fixed with no luck. It seems that this particular computer is much older and seems that it will be needed to be updated, but of course because of budget cuts they can't get another one. Her class is not the only class with this same problem.  Now with 20 + students one computer per class in not enough. Going to a computer class in the school is not possible right now since the 3rd graders and up are preparing for FCAT's. I don't think its...
