If you got a HabiTalk post notification email on Saturday with no subject and no link to a blog post, I’m so sorry. The system is set to notify you when I create a new blog post, once or twice a month. The problem is, I didn’t write a blog post on Saturday. Something went haywire with our web publishing software.
Our mission is to save you time by providing “links you can really use,” not to waste it. Our developer is looking into what triggered the bogus blog notification. We’re determined to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Mortgage rates are low, low, low.
Here are tips on refinancing.
I’ve owned my condominium for six years. And I’ve already refinanced my mortgage once.
My rate, 4%, seemed pretty good at the time. But compared to today’s rates, it’s high. Refinancing often requires you to jump through hoops…reappraisals, current financial statements, tons of paperwork, etc.. But if you have the time, you may be very happy you did it. Get tips on refinancing here.

Daylight Saving ends November 1.
Set your clocks back one hour.
In most of the U.S. Daylight Saving ends on Sunday, November 1 at 2 am. Unless you want to get up at 2 am, set your clocks and watches back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday. On Sunday, sunrise and sunset will be about an hour earlier than the day before. That weekend is a good time to change the batteries in your smoke alarms, too. Even hard-wired alarms need back up batteries changed in case there’s a power outage.
