Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

hdr converted to b&w...this effect reminds me of an old school solarization print...macky lines and all.

omg had no clue my gray hair is coming in so striped....


tomorrow my family home goes to foreclosure ...

on the steps of the courthouse...how dramatic..20 years, goodbye....

we are bidding on it up to a point..

primarily up against indymac, not investors...

the bank said they won't cooperate...because it's "so close" to the auction they won't consider us for any programs.....wouldn't accept my dad's short sale offer because he was "related."

shouldn't that be okay? I mean ..they will let someone else buy it for that price but not us?

I usually try and keep up with trends, but this one happened despite my constant efforts....

so it's out of my control...

but what is still in my control is not smoking....not one puff or drag....

in times of great stress I need strength, and smoking would be weak..

almost 4 wks now....thanks for everyone's support.

    Oh Peggy....I'm so sorry:( I pray this all works out somehow for you. I am REALLY proud of you for not smoking though! I wish I had lots of money, I'd buy your house for you. :( I fear this will be happening to more of us than not, pretty soon. (((((( Peggy ))))))

    Oh that is a shame, Peggy. I won't even start about Indymac not selling to you.The greed in America is what got us into this. I am so impressed with your keeping strong and not smoking. A lot of people would use this situation to start back. Standing Ovation!!!

    you know I have walked a bumpier road in this life.....and I have learned that over each rocky mountain there lies a more peaceful valley.....I'm sure of it.

    "Wikipedia-IndyMac Federal Bank, FSB (Federal Savings Bank) is a bridge bank created to manage assets and liabilities of IndyMac Bank, FSB until they can be disposed of. 'IndyMac' is a generally accepted contraction of the formal name Independent National Mortgage Corporation. Before its failure, IndyMac Bank was the largest savings and loan association in the Los Angeles area and the seventh largest mortgage originator in the United States. The failure of IndyMac Bank on July 11, 2008, was the fourth largest bank failure in United States history, and the second largest failure of a regulated thrift. IndyMac Bank's parent corporation was IndyMac Bancorp (Pink Sheets: IDMCQ) until the FDIC seized IndyMac Bank."
