Hundreds of people showed up in downtown Houston on Friday to take place in the city’s Housing Fair. The event was put on by Houston Hope. A program designed to provide down payment assistance on affordable housing in targeted areas for those who qualify. How much are we talking about here? You could get as much as $37,000 from the city in addition to an $8,000 tax credit from the feds if you get into your home before December 1st. Lots of people attended the Houston Hope event including a lot of city workers who were also interested in the program. Not sure if they would be able to qualify. At the event: Mayor Bill White, Christopher Butler, Alvin Wright, Sue Lovell, Rev. Elmo Johnson, Rev. Manson Johnson and the list goes on. If you want more information contact the city of Houston Hope program to see if you can get some of that free money!

While I was in Louisiana this weekend I ran across a turtle trying to cross the street. He was almost done, so I wanted to give him or her a helping hand by pushing it to the sidewalk. What suprised me was the turtle was so frightened by me it began peeing. As one person put it they didn’t know turtles pee when they are afraid. I thought maybe it was some water it held in its shell. But when I pushed it again the water came out again as the slow moving critter started to run away from me. I didn’t want to give the thing bladder problems so I left it alone. Did you know turtles made water when they’re frightened? The Insite wants to hear your insite!
Someone I know was eating this. It is a hot sausage po-boy and Krispy Kreme donuts. The brand of donut lets you know it wasn’t in Texas. But they were eating lite so they threw in the diet Coke. When will people learn. If you eat a half million calories a diet Coke won’t redeem you. You’ve just saved about 130 calories while picking up another 500,000. This is the Insite picture of the day. Have you seen someone order that Big Mac, Whopper, Hot Apple Pie, and threw in that diet Coke? What do you think? The Insite would like to hear your opinion!
