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.

One of the serious impacts of seasonal snow and big winds is the snow squall where in an instant visibility almost or entirely disappears. Yesterday was one of those days here in western Massachusetts. We were advised it was coming and so I went to the post office and bank earlier than I had plan...
In important times of our lives words often fail. Actually they fail a lot. Today was one of those times. Endre posted about his sweet Carmen who can't be saved. I am a long time dog gal and one of mine is frail and not doing well. I am pampering him a little more today because I'm not sure how m...
It is early and it is cold but the pups and I are up and going about our day. Sometimes the beauty just hits me in the face. It did this morning.I snapped a couple of pictures and then saw the red in the cold white. Have a good day and stay warm.
The world of real estate is constantly evolving and with every evolution is is essential to be really, really careful. I worked in an area where a colleague was murdered in her vacant listing when her seller beckoned her over just before the walk through was to happen. This was someone she knew a...
I sometimes think that we might be better off without the constant warnings of terrible things ahead. I realize I am part of the problem.

A man and woman who I have only seen once, came in to dis-mantle their booth. They asked for the owner knowing full well she wasn't or wouldn't ...

In early November of last year I was lucky enough attend a Active Rain Meetup in Boston that my friend from Dallas Lisa Von Domeck hosted in conjunction with t...
It is cold and there will be snow later and I will be at the Antique Gallery where I have a spot. It hasn't really been shopping time here in the Berkshires. I started this venture just about a year ago and it took several months to start to see anything from it. When the weather is harsh and the...
Some days are harder than others ans some weeks are almost unspeakable. I am having one of those weeks. My gang of four rescues is home and we are adjusting to their various medications. My hand is hurting from being bitten trying to get a big capsule down Finn's mouth. No more of that for me : h...
It is another trip to the Vet today. I couldn't give Finn his medication for an infected foot yesterday. I tried to hide the capsule in cheese, in peanut butter and in salami to no avail. Bottom line was when I pushed it down hoping he would swallow it I got bitten twice. It hurts like hell but I...
