Housing market continues to collapse -- record sales AND price declines -- proposed SOLUTIONS

Coming soon: Trado organic coffee, tea and spices

A couple months ago, before I started Trado, I was searching the web for co-ops and buying clubs, trying to find a national organization to join or to learn how to start one.  During my search I found Frontier and as I was also running low on cayenne and curry and I've been looking for teas and herbs, I spent a lot of time at their site.

770 credit score required for auto loans? Mortgage rates at 37-year low

Monday I heard an interview on NPR with a guy who claimed that new guidelines for auto loans require 770 credit scores. I don't think there will be many people with 770+ scores who WANT to finance another crappy new car.

Crom currency - Croatians with a clue

I'll be reading up on the Crom Time Bank as soon as I have more time.  Mostly English pages so far and when you see the link to The Money Masters, you know they're on the right track.

I found Aljosa Duric's posts at the Cyclos forum and I'm glad I looked up his website.
