Joke Du Jour
A construction worker goes to the doctor and says, "Doc, I'm constipated." The doctor examines him for a minute and then says, "Lean over the table." The construction worker leans over the table, the doctor whacks him on the butt with a baseball bat, CRACK... and then sends him into the bathroom. He comes out a few minutes later and says, "Doc, I feel great. What should I do to prevent constipation?" The doctor says, "Stop wiping with cement bags.”

Private Money Commercial Permanent Loans Nationwide From $100,000 to $3.5MM
Do you need a commercial lender who will actually lend up to 75% LTV? Do you need a lender who will also look at the borrower's global income - income from salaries, other investments, etc.? Do you need a lender who will allow the seller to carry back a second mortgage? Does your client have a balloon payment coming due on his commercial property? Has your bank offered him a discounted pay-off? Does your borrower have less-than-stellar credit? Is your client's company losing money? Is your borrower a foreign national? Do you need a non-recourse loan? Do you need a commercial loan with no prepayment penalty? Is your client's commercial property partially vacant? Do all of your commercial leases run out in the next 18 months? Do you need a lender who will allow a negative cash flow? Do you need a loan against a portfolio of rental houses?
And don't forget, we will quickly and happily issue you a written Loan Approval Letter - at no charge - that you can use as a fallback and to lure cheaper lenders. After all, everyone wants to lend to you if you already have a commitment. Here is our latest rate sheet.

Bill of Rights Joke
Two lawyers, Bob and Bill, were having a heated exchange during a trial. The judge asked both lawyers to approach the bench. "Your Honor," said Bob, "I objected because my distinguished colleague Bill was badgering the witness. It is obvious he has never heard of the Bill of Rights." "Rubbish!" snapped Bill. "I happen to know them by heart." Bob rolled his eyes in disbelief. "Do you now? Well, Bill, I have a hundred dollars that says you can't even tell me the first few words." Bill smirked and accepted the challenge and began, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." "Damn," Bob interrupted, fishing the money from his pocket, "I didn't think you'd know it."
Land Lease Loans
There are many commercial buildings that sit on leased land. The seller refused to part with the land, but he was willing to lease out the land for 49 to 99 years.
Even though the owner of the commercial building doesn't own the underlying land, it is still possible to finance the property. I wrote this week an extensive article about how to finance commercial property on leased ground.
Free Copy of The Blackburne List
The Blackburne List is a list of over 2,500 commercial lenders located nationwide. We just spent almost $30,000 and three months updating this list.

Memorial Plaque Joke
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy and said quietly, "Good morning, Alex." "Good morning, Pastor," he replied, still focused on the plaque. "Pastor, what is this?" The pastor replied, "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service." Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked, "Which service, the 8:00 or the 9:30?"

Swearing Joke (PG-13)
There are two brothers, aged four and six. The six-year-old says "You know, it's about time we started to swear." The four-year-old says "Okay." The six-year-old says "From now on I'll say 'hell' and you say 'ass.'" The four year old says "Okay" So they go downstairs and their mother asks, "What would you boys like for breakfast?" The six-year-old says "Oh, what the hell, I'll have corn flakes." WHACK! The kid goes flying across the room. The mother turns to the four-year-old and asks "And what would you like for breakfast?" The four-year-old says "I don't know, but you can bet your ass it's not corn flakes."

On a Personal Note
About 6 months ago, I bought my first house. It was a bit of a fixer-upper when I acquired it, and now it is almost completely rehabbed. There isn't a part of this house I haven't had to fix, other than the roof (luckily!). What I am most proud of is not what I've had to fix, but of the deck in the back which I built from the ground up. This was my first deck and really the first structure I've ever built from scratch. Of course, I had help with the design from my experienced father-in-law Nick, but I am proud to say every screw and every cut was done by my hand. Maybe, just maybe, I will get the nod of approval from Nick... so long as he doesn't notice it's slightly crooked by just a few degrees!

AN IRISHMAN'S FIRST DRINK WITH HIS SON
While reading an article last night about fathers and sons, memories came flooding back to the time I took me son out for his first pint. Off we went to our local pub, only two blocks from the cottage. I got him a Guinness. He didn't like it, so I drank it. Then I got him a Kilkenny's. He didn't like that either, so I drank it. Finally, I thought he might like some Harp Lager. He didn't. I drank it. I thought maybe he'd like whiskey better than beer so we tried a Jameson's. Nope! In desperation, I had him try that rare Redbreast - Ireland 's finest whiskey. He wouldn't even smell it. What could I do but drink it? By the time I realized he just didn't like to drink, I was so plastered that I could hardly push his stroller back home.
