I love those guys and it's on my list but I'm probably gonna have to wait till next month because I am on a self-imposed cd buying hiatus for April. The thing I don't get is, you pay rent and then the next month they want you to pay them again.

An old man is sitting on his front porch, talking to his new next door neighbor. "You know, I was a farmer for sixteen years. Sixteen years. And in all that time, not one person ever called me Farmer John. I was a policeman for seven years and never once in any of those seven years did anybody ...
