This guy was outside one of our bedroom windows this morning. Back when I lived in Hawaii we used to be visited by wild boar. They would come down the mountain and eat mangos as they ripened and dropped to the ground. We thought it was fun at first, until a group of them decided to stick around the neighborhood. Pigs can be VERY destructive. With the deer here in Corvallis you have to be careful to fence off your garden or plant deer-safe flowers and shrubs, but otherwise they aren't as problematic as having a group of wild pigs hanging around.

Saturday at 5pm they 'll be back in Gill Coliseum to put on an exhibition game against Montana Tech.
I'm looking forward to this upcoming season. My guess is, barring injury, it'll be the deepest/strongest Beaver basketball team they've had in a while.

Buy vs. Rent... Can you be better off by paying a lower down payment and NOT saving for a larger down payment?? Here's some thoughts....
Realtors often hear "I'm saving up for my down payment, we're a few years away". Keep in mind the phrase "there's more than one way to skin a cat", and with financing home purcahses that often is true as well.
The following article uses a 250K home purchase and runs some of the numbers to give you an example of what can happen. Keep in mind, not all type of loans are exactly the same, and the numbers may or may not work for you, so it's always a great idea to get in contact with a couple of different loan officers and types of lending institutions to have them run the numbers for you when you start thinking about purchasing a home.
You just may find that you might be able to get into a new home sooner than you think, and at the very least you will come out more informed and have a better idea of what you need to do to make the purchase of a home happen for you.
