Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

Holidays are generally great times, shared and enjoyed by family and friends. Preparing for the holidays is not a walk over and requires planning and preparation. I have generally found that the balance between the work required and the happiness inured isn't always worth the effort, so I general...
Every day is a new opportunity or a really tough experience. Whatever it is, it does require energy. I was thinking that energy is a part of our lives no matter how they are lived. This morning my energy is being used in a productive if not interesting way. I am off to the dump to drop off the de...
I am generally mindful of the big things in life and recognize more and more how little control we actually have over them. That said I am now really appreciative of little things said and done and important they are to me and to others. Yesterday someone waved me into traffic after I waited near...
I have talked about and written of this before but it is something that I am very serious about. Good people can make a mistake and often do when they buy a dog or cat from a pet shop or back yard breeder. Sometimes these folks even think they are saving an animal: they are not. Every time someon...
I learned a long time ago that if you didn't have something positive or constructive to say, then it was better to keep your mouth shut. Today is one of those days and so I have decided to keep my mouth shut. I hope your day brings you joy and peace.

The phone still rang and I was able to make calls but the normal easy peasey upgrades were frozen. I couldn't get help from my service provider a...
I am fond of making lists and then crossing things off as I get things accomplished. Not all lists are easy. Sometimes, often actually, I lose the paper where the list was written. When this happens, I am crazy to quickly recreate the list so that I can get going. Yes, I know I could use my compu...
When you move to a new area, in a new state there are many challenges: finding new physicians, providers, and places to get a great meal. Clearly there are missteps and every once in awhile you forget something that needs to be addressed. I am still looking for a dog groomer and dry cleaner. The ...
Yesterday I decided since winter was forecast for later this week, I would embrace it. I noticed that the annual flowers have said adieu and today I will bring in what I need to to complete the coming transformation. Last night the local weatherman said, "get ready for a big change." Okay I am re...
Fall is my favorite time of year: the temperatures are crisp but not cold, the leaves are glorious and stunning, and the flavors of the season are just delicious. But there is another component I like much less. The leaf blowers and large mowers make a great deal of noise and seem to be buzzing f...
