Home Improvement + Grants and Loans

Not everyone wants to live in the Taj Mahal but for sure we all could use a better house. For many the option of a grant or loan from a government program should not be overlooked. There is a program called 203(K) that is aimed at rehabilitating homes. Everyone should take a look at the HUD 203(K)program description page. The benifit of the 203(K) Rehabilitation mortgage insurance is that it provides for wrapping the purchase loan and the improvment loan together based on the projected after repair value of the property. Beyond the 203(K) program see the HUD list of programs for home improvement, there is money for many types of repairs. Point your browser here and bookmark the page, then investigate the link to www.energy.gov, you may be pleasantly surprised. Go here to see the info on the Weatherization Assistance Program. The Rehabilitation mortgage insurance is not the only provision under 203(K), they are many more.
Go to the HUD index home page and become familiar with this site. My advice is not doing any more research until you have spent at least two hours on HUD's pages. For instance, HUD does sell homes, see the HUD homes page for the list of single family programs.

For those of you that insist on paying for information on grants and loans there is a company that operates a web site,
Internet Financial Services, c/o: Online Grants Access, 1919 S. Laramie Ave., Peoria, IL. 61605.
You can become an affiliate promoting this site.(no charge)
For a one time fee you can sign up for lifetime access to their data base and advisement service.

There also is a site where you order an eBook download pdf file of 599 pages for $29.95

If you really are lazy and you want a company to do all the work for you, and realy want to part with your money contact
National Grants Conferences call 716-527-8244 or 585-527-8244 and have the platinum card ready, if fact you might want to split that up on two cards, ouch!

I have a page set aside for those that want to investigate a work at home income.
I call the page Start with Zilch as all the programs I will list will not require a cent of your money. Start with Zilch

Too bad more of the web is not like this site! qualityhealth.com

Here is a good example of their high quality content

Instead of thinking about all the foods you shouldn’t eat, focus on the ones you should! Here’s a list of the 15 healthiest foods you should be working into your weekly meal plan:

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are great for your heart. Fish oil can also help aching and arthritic joints.

Oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber, which can help control blood sugar and lower cholesterol.

Nuts are full of antioxidants, fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and zinc, and are a good source of healthy fat and a filling, but healthy, snack. They can help lower your risk of cancer and heart disease and protect against type 2 diabetes.

Pinto beans have 14 grams of protein and fiber per cup, and are also rich in folic acid, which is great for your heart.

Cauliflower has vitamin C and B, folic acid, fiber, potassium, manganese, and magnesium, and can decrease the risk of cancer.

Spinach helps keep your body strong, and is rich with nutrients. Not too keen on the taste? Try it with olive oil and garlic.

Red grapes are rich in flavonoids, which are antioxidants that fight inflammation, heart disease, and cancer.

Sweet potatoes are packed with beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps boost your immune system. Vitamin A can also help with eye and skin health.

Blueberries have tons of antioxidants that can help ward off many chronic illnesses, help with infection, and protect against brain damage after a stroke.

Strawberries discourage the development of growth in cancer cells and might even help with their self-destruction. They also lower your risk of getting blood clots.

Soy is a great cancer-fighter and can lower bad cholesterol levels.

Tomatoes have lots of lycopene, an antioxidant that protects against heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and many types of cancers.

Garlic can reduce cholesterol levels and may lower blood pressure and help inhibit dangerous clotting.

Flax is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. You can purchase these as seeds, or flour, and incorporate them into many foods like smoothies, yogurt, and cereal.

Sesame seeds have copper, magnesium, zinc, fiber, and protein in them. Eating just a tablespoon a day can lower your cholesterol!

Jan. 3, 8:57 a.m. ET — The Full Wolf Moon. Amid the zero cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the “Moon After Yule.” In some tribes this was the Full Snow Moon; most applied that name to the next Moon.

Feb. 2, 12:45 a.m. ET — The Full Snow Moon. Usually the heaviest snows fall in this month. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some tribes this was the Full Hunger Moon.

March 3, 6:17 p.m. ET — The Full Worm Moon. In this month the ground softens and the earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signals the end of winter, or the Full Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. A total lunar eclipse will take place on this night; the Moon will appear to rise will totally immersed (or nearly so) in the Earth’s shadow over the eastern United States. The rising Moon will be emerging from the shadow over the central United States, while over the Western U.S. the eclipse will be all but over by the time the Moon rises.

April 2, 1:15 p.m. ET — The Full Pink Moon. The grass pink or wild ground phlox is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names were the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and — among coastal tribes — the Full Fish Moon, when the shad came upstream to spawn. This is also the Paschal Full Moon; the first full Moon of the spring season. The first Sunday following the Paschal Moon is Easter Sunday, which indeed will be observed six days later on Sunday, April 8.

May 2, 6:09 a.m. ET — The Full Flower Moon. Flowers are abundant everywhere. It was also known as the Full Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.

May 31, 9:04 p.m. ET — The Blue Moon. The second full Moon occurring within a calendar month is usually bestowed this title. Although the name suggests that to have two Full Moons in a single month is a rather rare occurrence (happening "just once in a . . ."), it actually occurs once about every three years on average.

June 30, 9:49 a.m. ET — The Full Strawberry Moon. Known to every Algonquin tribe. Europeans called it the Rose Moon.

July 29, 8:48 p.m. ET — The Full Buck Moon. This is when the new antlers of buck deer push out from their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, thunderstorms being now most frequent. Sometimes also called the Full Hay Moon.

Aug. 28, 6:35 a.m. ET — The Full Sturgeon Moon. This is when this large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water like Lake Champlain is most readily caught. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because the moon rises looking reddish through sultry haze, or the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. A total lunar eclipse will coincide with moonset for the eastern United States. The Central and Mountain Time Zones will see the Moon’s emergence coincide with moonset, while the western United States will see the entire eclipse.

Sept. 26, 3:45 p.m. ET — The Full Harvest Moon. Always the full Moon occurring nearest to the Autumnal Equinox. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice — the chief Indian staples—are now ready for gathering.

Oct. 26, 12:52 a.m. ET — The Full Hunter’s Moon. With the leaves falling and the deer fattened, it is time to hunt. Since the fields have been reaped, hunters can ride over the stubble, and can more easily see the fox, also other animals that have come out to glean and can be caught for a thanksgiving banquet after the harvest. The Moon will also be at perigee later this day, at 7:00 a.m., at a distance of 221,676 miles from Earth. Very high tides can be expected from the coincidence of perigee with full Moon.

Nov. 24, 9:30 a.m. ET — The Full Beaver Moon. Time to set beaver traps before the swamps freeze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Beaver Full Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now active in their preparation for winter. Also called the Frosty Moon.

Dec. 23, 2:51 a.m. ET — The Full Cold Moon. Among some tribes, it was called the Full Long Nights Moon. In this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and the nights are at their longest and darkest. Also sometimes called the “Moon before Yule” (Yule is Christmas, and this time the Moon is only just before it). The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long and the Moon is above the horizon a long time. The midwinter full moon takes a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite to the low sun.
