If there’s one movie that every new adult should see this year, it’s “Boyhood.” While we’ve gotten a lot of great coming-of-age stories in the past couple years like “The Spectacular Now” and “The Way Way Back,” Richard Linklater’s extraordinary film takes the genre to unfeasible new levels.
In order to keep the ball on the “fairways” and not in the “rough,” here is my green light idea. In the purchase contract to Pulte, stipulate the following conditions: The proceeds from the sale of the Lakes Golf Course shall be allocated as follows: First, the original purchase price of the property (based on recorded data) goes to Mr. [Wilson] Gee. That step would keep him whole. Second, the balance after repayment of the original purchase price would be divided as follows: a portion of the balance based on the CPI change from when Gee purchased the property to current date is given to him (say 15 percent but based on hard data) and as bonus for “being easy to do business with,” an additional 5 percent.
When the trailer for “Edge of Tomorrow” hit awhile back, everyone seemed to have the same reaction. “So what, it’s like ‘Groundhog Day’ meets ‘Transformers?’” In a nutshell, yeah, that’s exactly what the film is. The good news is that “Edge of Tomorrow” is also one of the summer’s more surprising blockbusters. As an action picture, it’s infinitely smarter and more entertaining than any of the “Transformers” movies. While not as funny or heartfelt as “Groundhog Day,” it does have a very welcome sense of humor and genuine affection for its characters. It’s kind of a shame that this $178 million blockbuster is likely destined to get lost in the shuffle of summer movies as it’s really worth checking out.

When purchasing a home, there is always a balance in priorities between getting the home that you really want and saving money. Much of the costs (price, interest rates, property taxes, insurance, etc.) seem to be dictated by factors outside of our control. There are a few things, however, that you can do before, during and after your home purchase that might save you a few hundred (or even a few thousand) bucks.
