A couple signs of the times




This first one is all too familiar to everyone...crazy rising gas prices. This one was $3.29 in April....

then one short month later, $4.09

Next, you just won't believe:


cause I know I didn't believe it, its a foreclosure tour bus! Sorry, but this just made me sick to my stomach. Yea, I know, desparate times call for desparate measures, but isn't this ever so slightly on the unethical side??

It is heartbreaking to see a house go to foreclosure. An empty house is an invitation to kids and homeless to use the property for shelter. There are a couple of neighborhoods in my area that have multiple foreclosures that have had a spike in crime. If they have to resort to bus tours to get these houses occupied, then that is the less of two evils.

I have two foreclosed houses in my neighborhood. I pray that someone will buy them soon, even if they become rental property.

An interesting perspective, a different way to look at it I guess, thanks for your thoughts!

I heard about these awhile back on Dateline or something like that. I am with you--I know that the houses have to be dealt with but it seems almost like profiting from someone else's loss....
