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.

Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining and while really frigid outside it is a terrific. I have been out and about and will be again shortly. Birds are all over my yard and seem to be enjoying themselves. This one was taken on a cloudy day with less joy but a great deal of determination.
I spend Sunday's at the Antique Gallery where I have a space. It was pretty slow but it was a good day for me. When people know what they are buying it is special. I sold an old cookie jar, a wine rack and an old set of Minton dishes. Later someone bought a small brush I had in lighted case up fr...
It has been a long week of dealing with technical stuff and disappointment, but today I am back at the Antique Gallery where I have a space. I was there twice yesterday and had a few things sell.

I have decided I want to liv...

Yesterday I was looking for something and found that I still needed to route through things and cloths unworn and not needed. An...
I watched the memorial for George HW Bush earlier today. I was moved by his goodness and integrity. So many people with stories to tell and each very special. At the end of our lives it is wonderful to be so well loved and admired. Actually this is something to strive for always.On the downside I...

I hope that this unity, and dare I say dignity will last after today is done. There is a majesty in the simplicity and today is a chance for us to reflect...
I have been an AT&T customer forever. I have been with them since they were Bell Atlantic. In short it has been about 40 years. In the area I live AT&T was the only service for cell service when I moved here. There were other providers but none had any service in my new small town. And so I staye...
So the fix it guy came to my home to get his downloaded connections into my obsolete Windows Machine that is no longer supported. I hate waiting on helpers, hate finding that any technology I have paid serious money for was designed to be obsolete. I have proprietary software that I bought that w...
