We converted two real estate positions to equity ownership, and after the quarter ended bought another real estate property very opportunistically, a very active quarter and one that is positioning us to attain our goals. While credit generally continued to improve, we ran certain impairments through the balance sheet, including as I mentioned our last 2007 CMBS fixed rate bond of almost $5 million and real estate loans which we converted to equity.We also had a very unique loan provision on the leverage loan side of the book for two loans. Loan losses in general decreased significantly from our prior year, but were still elevated due to our one-time items. We believe the credit environment is still improving for real estate, and remains extremely benign on the corporate side, but we know with caution the weaker macro situation.
