Believe it or not, I do eat in other places than casinos. This particular trip, included an overnight at the Wildhorse Casino, operated by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla, is located just east of Pendleton Oregon. I didn't try their dinner restaurant; instead we went to the buffet. What is it about casinos; they all seem to have a buffet? Is there something that says gambling about a buffet? Are you taking chances? Anyway, the food for dinner was acceptable. I can't grade it any higher than that. We actually got to the buffet during the few minutes that it was closed and waited across the hall in one of the bar areas. My sister ordered a margarita and got one with the worst tasting tequila drinks I have ever tasted. Their bar tequila made it very "interesting" tasting. So, if yo...

During the past few weeks interest rates have fallen and then risen slightly.  Although predicting interest rates is very difficult it appears that fairly low rates are here to stay for awhile.  If your planning on buying a home within the foreseeable future you should be able to take advantage of these historically low rates22 years Matt has taught math and consumer finance in the public school system.  Additionally, he has many years of real estate investing experience and knowledge regarding low or no money down financing options.  If you are considering buying or selling a home, please give him a call at 541-377-9470, or contact his assistant, Barbara Mortela, at (541) 310-8960.  My company website is http://www.johnjhoward.com/

Of course in the story of the Three Bears, Goldilocks would try Papa Bear and Baby Bear's furniture and then declare that Mama Bear's furniture "Was Just Right."  I feel the same about Pendleton Snow.  Most enjoy waking up to beautiful snowfall.  And then watching the flakes drift toward the ground is delightfully relaxing.  But, then comes the driving in it and living in it, and shoveling it.  I believe Pendleton's snow is just right.  Last Thursday we awoke to snow and now on Sunday it's virtually gone.  It was here, we enjoyed and now we can return to living without it.  Occasional snowfall that is short-lived is just one more reason for living in Pendleton.Matt Vogler specializes in the Pendleton area market.  For the past 22 years Matt has taught math and personal finance in the pu...
