Animoto - Music Videos!

Enjoy Photography & Music?
Use ANIMOTO for fun or business!

I have been using ANIMOTO for about one year now for real estate marketing applications and for fun with my vacation pictures.  It's a great tool for your PC!

Animoto - Your Images, Your Music, Never The Same

So what is Animoto?  Animoto is a web application that, with the click of a button, produces videos using images, video clips and music that a user selects. Utilizing patent-pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence, Animoto videos have the emotional impact of a movie trailer and the visual energy of a music video.  Users simply choose a song and images. Animoto then automatically generates a unique video for them. No two videos are ever the same.

Great Mexican Food - El Poblano

Want Great Mexican Food?
Stop by our favorite: El Poblano Mexican Restaurant (in Chapin area)

We eat regularly at El Poblano Mexican Restaurant and enjoy great Mexican food, reasonable prices and excellent service. It's located on U.S. Highway 76 between Ballentine and Chapin (just outside of White Rock). Last night, we ate at El Poblano's again. I had the Texas Fajitas and it was excellent. Personally, my other favorites are Shrimp Fajitas, Pollo Loco, and Shrimp & Rice. The salsa and chips are also very good. This is our favorite Mexican Restaurant in the Columbia area.

Stop in soon to enjoy great Mexican food and say hello to Nacho, Diego, Alex and the other friendly staff soon. The address is: 2371 Dutch Fork Road; Chapin.   Telephone: (803) 407-5784.  El Poblano is open for lunch and dinner.

Home Buying Time in Columbia, SC

NOW is the time to BUY:  Really Low Mortgage Rates are Available

Mortgage interest rates are below 5%!  In fact, the other day I called and found a 30 year fixed rate at 4.5%.  Here are some numbers to show how significant savings can be with the current really low mortgage rates, assuming a $150,000 mortgage for 30 years:

6% mortgage - historically a low/competive mortgage rate.
Per month for principal and interest = $899.33 per month

4.5% mortgage -  A GREAT rate in June 2010!
Per month for principal and interest = $760.03 per month

The Savings:
SAVE $139.30 per month (a savings of 15.4% per month)
SAVE $50,148 over the 30 year mortgage
