Keeping cool with Cham Wae

It is so hot today in the DC metropolitan area. We have temperatures hovering in and around 95° up and down the Eastern seaboard. My wife went out to the market and brought home plenty of fruit and vegetables for us to eat as we chill. The above picture is a Korean melon called Cham Wae. Now, some of you may all ready know about this interesting looking fruit, but a brother like me had to look it up on the internet. Yes, this is how we learn. We try new things and if we like them, we induct them into our everyday lives. Cham Wae is good; I think I will include it on my grocery list. Well, be cool wherever you are and try something new today. Peace~

Something I enjoy [not new but not often enough], ice-cold lemon grass and lime leaf tea on a super hot afternoon.

I think I am officially hungry. The weather here in Milwaukee is much the same as your area. The kids and I made lemonade with papaya and mint today :)

I have had Cham Wae a few times, maybe I will have to look for one the next time we go to the out door market.

That sounds cool and delicious. You'll have to tell how to fix it.

I see you know my pain. It's too humid for me. I can never get used to it.

Yes, it's good. I think you'll like it.

Pwife & Emil-
It taste like Cantaloupe. It's nice and sweet. It has the same texture too. The one that you see in the picture was not ripe enough, so I'm letting the uncut one sit for a while.

That looks so cool on this HOT day in Georgia. I need to go on a fruit hunt, but I do not want to go outside.
We are expected to top 100 degrees today, not including the heat index. It's not officially summer yet.

Judicial Foreclosure

The judicial process of foreclosure, which involves filing a lawsuit to obtain a court order to foreclose, is used when no power of sale is present in the mortgage or deed of trust. Generally, after the court declares a foreclosure, your home will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Using this type of foreclosure process, lenders may seek a deficiency judgment and under certain circumstances, the borrower may have up to one (1) year to redeem the property.

Non-Judicial Foreclosure

The non-judicial process of foreclosure is used when a power of sale clause exists in a mortgage or deed of trust. A "power of sale" clause is the clause in a deed of trust or mortgage, in which the borrower pre-authorizes the sale of property to pay off the balance on a loan in the event of the their default. In deeds of trust or mortgages where a power of sale exists, the power given to the lender to sell the property may be executed by the lender or their representative, typically referred to as the trustee. Regulations for this type of foreclosure process are outlined below in the "Power of Sale Foreclosure Guidelines".

Power of Sale Foreclosure Guidelines

If the deed of trust or mortgage contains a power of sale clause and specifies the time, place and terms of sale, then the specified procedure must be followed. Otherwise, the non-judicial power of sale foreclosure is carried out as follows:
A notice of sale must be: 1) recorded in the county where the property is located at least fourteen (14) days prior to the sale; 2) mailed by certified, return receipt requested, to the borrower at least twenty (20) days before the sale; 3) posted on the property itself at least twenty (20) days before the sale; and 4) posted in one (1) public place in the county where the property is to be sold.
The notice of sale must contain the time and location of the foreclosure sale, as well as the property address, the trustee's name, address and phone number and a statement that the property will be sold at auction.

The borrower has up until five days before the foreclosure sale to cure the default and stop the process.
The sale may be held on any business day between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm and must take place at the location specified in the notice of sale. The trustee may require proof of the bidders ability to pay their full bid amount. Anyone may bid at the sale, which must be made at public auction to the highest bidder. If necessary, the sale may be postponed by announcement at the time and location of the original foreclosure sale.

Lenders may not seek a deficiency judgment after a non-judicial foreclosure sale and the borrower has no rights of redemption..
