Steelers seemed to play better overall today, but sadly, end result was still a FAIL. Not that 6-6 is a bad record, because it's not, it's just not what the team is truly capable of achieving, and we have blown several games to ourselves not being able to outplay the other teams. The opponents may have appeared to everyone else as the weaker team (esp. Kansas City and Oakland) but they had fleeting moments of sheer greatness that impressed everyone and allowed them to make magic happen, and win. I know it's "just football" and the Steelers did win the Super Bowl last year, so it makes them somewhat more of a target, but it's still a tough pill for me to swallow. Plus, I was working today and didn't get to see any of the game until it was sliced and diced on Sunday Night Football (where, for the record, Brett Brett & the Vikings lost to the Cardinals, and lost pretty badly, not as close as the score may imply to some, sadly).

Football rant/commentary suspended. On to other topics...

Christmas is coming, and coming SOON (18 days? WHAT?!)! This year has marked a lot of big events, and changes. There are always good moments mixed in with bad moments, but I am an extremely reflective person and like to see the big picture of life as a whole. Deep down, I know some traditions (or I guess I shouldn't say I know, it's more like I hope) will never die, and I am looking forward to the sights and sounds I typically come to love with the people who mean most to me! There are so many things I want to try to accomplish in the coming weeks but we will have to see what time I can dedicate to making these things happen. Gifts are almost done, and it's party planning that I'm really concentrating on now.

I think I'm temporarily tapped out of commentary for the time being, and that's only because being tired just hit me like a Mack truck. Sleep and to be continued later!

Les montants de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url]ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur les douze prochains mois, suivi de nouveaux replis de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
Aprcs un premier repli de 3,1% en 2008, les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur l’annee prochaine. Et la reduction devrait se poursuivre les annיes suivantes si l’on se fie aux scיnario les plus pessimistes avancיs par la Fnaim.
D’aprcs une יtude publiיe ce matin, la Fיdיration nationale des agences [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] rappelle en effet que la baisse s’est fortement accיlיrיe en fin d’annיe… Aprcs avoir enregistrי un recul de 2,9% au cours du 3cme trimestre, les prix des logements anciens se sont effondrיs de prcs de 6,5% au cours du seul 4cme trimestre de 2008.
La baisse des taux enclenchיe fin 2008 ne suffira donc pas r renverser la tendance et r relancer la demande r court terme. Plusieurs raisons r cela. Depuis quelques mois, les agents immobiliers constatent que les nיgociations sont de plus en plus tendues entre vendeurs et acheteurs. « Surtout, malgrי des taux qui repassent en dessous de la barre des 5%, il est r craindre que les banques ne desserrent pas facilement leurs conditions de crיdit dans les mois r venir. Pour l’heure, les exigences d’apport personnels restent toujours trcs strictes : autour de 10 r 20% en moyenne », observe Renי Pallincourt, prיsident de la Fיdיration nationale des agents immobiliers
Face r ce constat, la Fnaim prיfcre donc parier sur une stabilisation du marchי r horizon 2012. « Une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% est encore nיcessaire pour rיtablir la solvabilitי des mיnages et permettre de relancer le marchי [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url]» note Renי Pallincourt. Compte tenu de l’יvolution incertaine de la crise יconomique, la Fיdיration s’avance meme, pour la premicre fois, r יvoquer de nouvelles baisses de prix au cours des prochaines annיes. La Fnaim anticipe ainsi un repli de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
