Every April 3rd National Chocolate Mousse Day (Oh who are we kidding EVERYDAY is NCM Day!!!) Recognizes the decadent dessert that gained popularity in France in the 1800s.

Mousse is prepared by beating eggs or cream or both to a frothy, airy consistency and then folding the ingredients together to create a light, creamy delight.

While mousse can be either savory or sweet, for this day we will focus on that all-time favorite, chocolate.

From dark chocolate to milk chocolate, bittersweet or any combination, there is plenty of variety when it comes to chocolate mousse.

A college degree, or your money back - The Hechinger Report

I’d like to see higher learning institutions have more skin in the game. Everyday I see folks with crushing student loan debt trying to qualify for home loans. Some of the investors of conventional loans are a little more flexible and qualify you off the wage earner minimum payment. However, FHA uses a 1% of balance payment to qualify you-and that’s becoming an issue with young people with limited down payment and $50k+ in student loan debt. Melissa Coombs bet on college. She took out loans, moved to Maine from Connecticut, and spent four years earning a bachelor’s degree in marketing. After graduation, she moved home and started looking for a job. “I actually ended up working at a gas station, and realized, after about eight months...

Each year on the 9th of March, people across the country observe National Get Over It Day. Just as it implies, National Get Over It Day is to do exactly that, GET OVER IT.

Are you ready for a great snack and orange fingers? Happy National Cheese Doodle Day! March 5th is the annual celebration for the cheddar cheese coated, puffed or crunchy, fried or baked snack food.
The actual inventor of Cheese Doodles is under debate.
Generally, the credit goes to a man named Morrie Yohai who made a variety of extruded snack foods in the 1940s for his family’s company called Old London Foods. Other sources show patents for similar products in the 1930s and still other competing accounts in Wisconsin and in New Orleans as well.
However they came to be, they are here. Their crunchy, orange deliciousness is enjoyed around the world! They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and flavors and 15 million pounds are produced annually.

We’ve gone Doc-Less! That means a faster, easier mortgage for you! Let’s get started today!

What’s your retro? On National Retro Day, swoop the hair into a mile-high beehive or strut those eight-inch bell bottoms. Can you maximize the curls for a stellar Afro? Don’t hesitate to break out the old roller skates and see if you still have those mad skills. Tie the hair up with a polka dot bandana and strike muscle pose like Rosie the Riveter. Maybe you prefer a moonwalk, a leather jacket, and a single glove.

With no smartphones, internet, and social media, we spent more time focused on each other when we were together. Each moment recorded in memory for us to look back retrospectively and not for the whole world to see.

Mortgage Rates Ready to Move After Tomorrow's Inflation Data
Mortgage rates began the day fairly well in line with the past 2 days. While it's nice to see some stability in this environment, it's not so nice that it's occurring at 4-year highs. Do we have a shot at moving much lower or should you brace for more? What warning signs should you look for to help answer that question?

Much has been made in the news recently about the correlation between stocks and bonds (which dictate rates). Depending on the day, stocks are said to be falling because rates are too high or rates are said to be rising because stocks are rising. In reality, rates are largely doing their own thing, and that thing just happens to correlate with movement in stocks in general. Last week's stock crash was a different story as it did actually help interest rates catch their collective breath.

Tomorrow will be a different story yet again as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) stands a very good chance to inform the next major move for rates. CPI is the most important inflation report and arguably the most important economic report in general at the moment. To whatever extent inflation is higher than expected, we're likely to see upward pressure on rates. If it's much weaker than expected, the recent resilience near the multi-year rate highs could give way to some actual progress back in the other direction. It remains to be seen how long such progress could last, but in any event, you'd want to assume it had a limited shelf life unless something changes (and if something changes, we'll definitely be talking about it here).

Mortgage Rates in Big Trouble
Feb 1 2018, 4:41PM
Mortgage rates are in big trouble. Whatever you've read about the current spike so far today, you'll probably need to double it after today's bond market movement. Why? Because most news stories on rates haven't yet accounted for today's bond market movement! The most prevalent source material is Freddie Mac's weekly survey which generally tracks lender quotes from Monday and Tuesday of any given week. The survey showed a 0.07% jump week over week.

The actual jump is more like 0.12-.13. The average lender is now quoting 4.375% on top tier 30yr fixed scenarios. More than a few are already up to 4.5%. Lenders quoting rates much lower are likely doing so at the expense of profit margins and that could create sustainability concerns. Moreover, unless you're interacting directly with someone who is in a position to lock a mortgage rate for you right then and there, there's really no guarantee that the information informing any given opinion on rates is still current. In other words, things have been moving quickly. Just because a mortgage lender could easily quote one rate a few hours ago doesn't mean that rate is available now. Keep the volatility in mind if you happen to have a loan in process. #RatesUp

Lenders Can Tap Bank Account For Mortgage

It’s called “Offsetting” and according to the author “the ties may be closer at smaller banks and credit unions, and tend to be more aggressive about tapping deposit accounts to make up missed mortgage loan payments.”

Keep your debts and bank account/savings in separate institutions Banks can raid your deposit account if you miss a house payment. Find out how they do it.
