President Obama Plans To Announce New Mortgage Initiative

The Best Notary Stamp Money Can Buy

I just received my Brother 2260 Elite Notary Stamp from Notary Rotary (see the post below for why I needed a new stamp).  Notary Rotary bills it as "the best notary stamp money can buy."  After trying it out, I can see why.  The stamp takes very little exertion to leave an impression.  And the impression it does leave is crystal clear every time.  No smudging, no smearing.  I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm actually a bit excited about my new notary stamp.  Yep, it's the little things...
