Good for her. 

When lenders start reacting to the rates dropping it may be the best time in history of time to refinance...

I refinanced in November.  I took out the original loan in May 2018.  I had no idea rates would drop from there.  My payment dropped $500 a month and it went from a 5 year ARM to a ten (which gives me more flexibility).  I will look at the numbers in a month or so.

They told me they were really backed up in November on refis, but it got done in very short order and the closing attorney came here for closing.

I just saw a news item that Border Patrol uncovered a large stash of toilet paper coming in from Mexico.  It was hidden under a pile of cocaine.

if it's a good idea for NYC and New Jersey and San Fran to limit all travel (being outside your home or esential business)

why wouldn't it be a good idea for all other major cities and minor cities?

heck, why not for everyone?

obviously the public needs a strict definition of essential travel:  

I'm not sure a trip to Olive Garden for carry out is essential

Only if you have no food in the house.

if that's the case, do NOT go to Olive Garden for a single meal or a few meals, go to the grocery and purchase 2 weeks worth of meals in one trip out

as you know both daughters work in the service food area as do their friends, tough on that industry and tough on folks that don't cook for themselves well, but standing inline at the food truck or the human interaction that takes place for delivered or picked up single meals

I feel we should try locking things down VERY tightly and see if it's effective.  If not, then F it and open things up and let the virus run it's course

this "half in" crap doesn't seem to be working on either end

Not a bad thought.  We are pretty effectively shot down here.  Folks getting take out are generally not standing in larger groups waiting.  I called in my order and just picked it up.  I'm interested in whether the city sees any benefit in slowing this thing down.

If it's contactless pickup, which all the ones I have seen are, then I'm not sure what the danger is?  

People need to go to the grocery store.  People need to get food.  I don't see that limiting avenues to do so, when there is little or no risk, is a necessary step.  It's actually the opposite.

In a way, I'm happy to Illinois on lockdown. I don't like our governor, but I'm pleased with his decision on this.

I'm still very pissed about holding the election last Tuesday though. He should have postponed it.

IOWA -- Twenty-three more Iowans have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Iowa Department of Public Health.

There are now 68 cases that have been confirmed in Iowa. The Iowa Department of Public Health says 1,049 negative tests have been conducted at the State Hygienic Lab.


and now tests are in short supply

utee, as you know the public isn't intelligent enough to do what's right.  See this pic on the front page of our local paper showing a "pickup"

But we're not going to be able to enforce martial law, which is the only way to prevent idiots from being idiots.  There just aren't enough military, national guard, and police, to enforce it.  So it's fruitless to suggest it.

Meanwhile, cutting off access to food is absolutely certain to create further panic.  Not just panic buying, I'm talking about people reacting violently, with weapons.
