As a follow up from one of yesterday’s posts here is another resource for people that are having trouble making their house payments: 1-888-995-Hope.
They have a web site too: http://www.995hope.org/ They provide counseling, and encourage home owners who are struggling to call as soon as possible. The sooner the call, the more options the owner has.
The counselors for the 888-995-HOPE hotline are provided by five leading HUD-approved nonprofit allies – Auriton Solutions, Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Atlanta, Consumer Credit Counseling Services of San Francisco, Novadebt, and Springboard Nonprofit Consumer Credit Management.
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Pinch ground cloves
Bottle dark rum
In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water (to fill the remaining half), stir well, and serve immediately.
Please do not operate dangerous machinery after drinking this, and that includes cell phones.
