I guess that to get the home loans from creditors you ought to present a good motivation. However, once I have received a secured loan, because I wanted to buy a house.


Thank you for writing this. I am a Portland area resident and recently my husband and I took the CERT training class. We learned a lot about the expected quake and what it will really mean for the city and surrounding areas. I have come to the general conclusion that Portlandians are in deep denial.

Just read Full-Rip Nine. It was mesmerizing, and so artful. How you make it looks so effortless to weave together so many sources, elicit such GREAT quotes is genius.

I am sorry if I sounds like I am fawning, but, hell, I think you are the best nonfiction environmental writer alive. BTW, what the heck will happen here on BI? Yours, Lora
