Joke Du Jour
A guy sits
down at the bar and orders drink after drink. "Is everything
okay, pal?" the bartender finally asks. "My wife and I got into a
fight, and she said she isn't talking to me for a month!" Trying
to put a positive spin on things, the bartender says, "Well, maybe
that's kind of a good thing. You know, ..a little peace and
quiet?" "Yeah, but today is the last day!"

Gas Men Joke
company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young
trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They
parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their way to
the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen
window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter.
Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his
younger co-worker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck
to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one. As they
came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that
last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped
and asked her what was wrong. Gasping for breath, she replied,
"When I see two gas men running as hard as you two were, I figured
I'd better run too!"
Busy Season For Commercial Loans Is Poised To
almost over. Kids are returning to school, and investors will soon
be ready to get back to work. Starting around the second week in
September, you will see commercial loan demand increase
dramatically. You can expect to be extremely busy taking
commercial loan applications.
What I am
about to share with you is very important:
Commercial real estate loan demand predictably
spikes every year around September 15th, and the mad rush
continues until around November 15th. My own private
money commercial mortgage company, Blackburne & Sons, does a full 40% percent
of its commercial lending volume for the entire year
during the mere 60-day period ending November 15th every
commercial loan broker therefore makes sure that he schedules no
vacations, no medical procedures, no conferences, no trade shows,
no golf trips, and no Las Vegas trips between September 15th and
November 15th every year. Even the odd vacation day at Blackburne
& Sons is strictly forbidden during that 60-day stretch. This
is our Christmas Season.

a Personal Note
I recently built my girlfriend a garden box in our front yard. To you, this may not sound like a big deal. But to me, someone that barely knows how to use a shovel, building this garden box was a great and surprising accomplishment. We now have tomatoes, cucumbers, jalapeno, spinach, cilantro, basil, and so much more. The work and design were simplistic, yet laborious, but having access to fresh fruit/vegetables is invaluable. Now, if only we can get our cat to stop the rabbits from stealing our produce...

Whenever I get a package of plain M&M's, I make it my
duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a
species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies
between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them
together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the
"loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets
to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and
red M&M's are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically
inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&M's as a race
cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is
the modern candy and snack-food world.
Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is
misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost
invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare
occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the
species continues to adapt to its environment. When I reach the
end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the
herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack
it neatly in an envelope and send it to: M&M Mars, A Division
of Mars, Inc. Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5
card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding
