Linda, the keeper of Raven's Roads is having a show and tell. What a biker! She walks around with a sign that says "SHOW ME YOUR. . . Bike!" Ha! She's not that kind of biker, so get that one out of your head. Got a motorcycle you want to show and tell? I brought mine in today.
On the homesteading front, my corn is burnt up. I watered and cared for it, yet it still didn't want to make it. This is the first time I have messed up on corn, and I don't know what I did wrong. There is a place a few miles from here that sells sweet corn, I will have to head there and by corn to can for the winter.
I fell through the floor of the laundry room on Saturday. I am tired of living this way. And am angry that credit scores are our only source of credit worthiness. I guess it is time I told you the story, I am sure some of you older readers are wondering why we haven't built our home yet.
We pay a company through our mortgage lender to watch our credit, they are to tell us when something negative has been placed on it. They didn't. We assumed everything was fine, and tried to push through our loan for the new house. Our credit score was too low and we were denied. What!?! So I looked it up. One bank marked us as a bad debt because we paid off a loan before it matured. So I fought it. It was only removed from one of the credit companies, not the others. But this didn't matter because we don't have credit cards and have paid off all our loans before maturity. This keeps are credit rating low. We stupidly thought that if we had no debt, that it would look good to lenders, everything was paid off in a timely manner. Nope, no go. So unless someone reading has $100,000US to loan me, it will be awhile until we can build our credit rating up to get a bank loan. Now we have to fix what is wrong with this house and hope for the best, like a plane landing on it for the insurance.
