Christmas Day and it's OK

Well, here it is, the special day for all we Christians (Catholic, Protestant, Presbyterian, Lutheran, etcetera) who enjoy celebrating the anniversary (traditional) of the birth of Christ.

I was up until 5 a.m. with Debbi trying to help wrap gifts, but she was in ill-sorts and I mainly kept a low profile, brewing tea and staying out of her way, mostly.

For my part, it's been an uneventful day so far. Danny, my landlord/roommate is keeping to himself in his bedroom across the hall and I'm doing the same in mine.

I had a flat tire Thursday and it was bitterly cold — the mercury had settled at about 2 degrees fahrenheit at the time — so I wasn't about to change the damn thing myself. And besides, all I had was one of those tiny, donut spares that, in all likelihood, would have put me in real jeopardy on the icy roads we had in the South Plains' "Hub City."

We've actually already had three snowfalls this year, most unusual in the 10 years I've lived here. We get rainfall laced with mud but not much snow. We're in for a cold winter, I think. I even predicted a snowy winter as early as September and it appears I may be right. By snowy I mean we'll get several storms with significant accumulations (significant means more than 6 inches). Point being, I didn't budget for an extra $100 outlay, which is what the new tire and install cost me, so I had to ask Danny to give me a raincheck on this month's rent. He said "OK" but he's acting a bit standoffish since I asked. Christ, I hope he doesn't tell me I have to move because I just moved in here and I don't relish even the thought of having to do it again so soon.

And so it goes.

I've tried to include a photo on this posting — the first time I've done that — so if this post comes out looking screwy that's the reason why. It's nice that BlogSpot is providing a photo option, thanks folks!

So hohoho! Merry Christmas. Hope your having a wondrous day. I'm out.

Favorite lady

Here's a photo of the woman I love. It's from Christmas 2003 and taken at her parents' home during their traditional get-together which, unfortunately, I missed this year. Does she love me? Who knows? Best answer: sometimes.

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities?
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain?s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine?s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company?s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor?s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
