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.

So I was thinking it is Monday and I have a big day and an even bigger week. Dealing with a support person at Epson is always difficult. I just want my second printer in a year to function. I read the instructions did as asked and nothing. Calling Triple A is a trip in itself. Getting to speak wi...
The weather has turned cold in my neck of the woods and the leaves have taken their last colorful turn and are blowing away. In two days the temperatures have dropped by 35 degrees and perhaps tomorrow there will be the first hard frost. I am ready for whatever comes and that's my story for tonig...
I just saw a new play called Poe, by Eric Hill. It was here on a three week trial and it was amazing. It was a one act performance of about 90 minutes without an intermission. The character of Poe was beautifully written and extraordinarily done by David Adkins who you may know from the televisio...
I am seeing more animals in the yard and even around on the roads. Their coats are more furry and they are clearly getting ready for the impending weather. Yesterday I saw a fat black squirrel and the bunny shown below. They seem to be busy foraging for food and finding places to store it.
Travel is one of my greatest joys but it is not without its hardships. Preparing for a trip requires thought, a list and the ability to plan ahead. Once I have booked a trip, I start my list. I decide what needs to be done before I leave, and what I will need to do to get those things done. I the...
My first computer was a no name classic and I had an Epson printer that went with it. That Epson was the best and worked well until I decided to go wireless. About 19 months ago I bought a MacBook Air and the salesperson suggested an Epson to go with it. I packed away my Dell printer that went wi...
Traveling is a passion for me: seeing new places, experiencing new cultures and finding myself in situations unlike any I have ever known. People all around the world are much like any you know: they are kind, concerned about their environment and their families, and ready to meet the challenges ...
A couple of days ago I made a mistake. It was stupid and it was something I regretted big time. That said, I didn't know how to make it better until today, when it finally occurred to me that the only thing to do was apologize, be prepared for the consequences, and move forward. To my surprise it...
It is important to get things ready before stuff happen. It has been windy in my neck of the woods recently and I am doing what I can to keep my stuff stationery. I have put my yard decorations away in the garage, removed the remaining hanging plants, and stored my garden supplies. And when the w...
The rain was heavy earlier and the winds pretty strong. Most of the leaves are down now. As I heard the rain on the roof I looked out my bedroom window and saw a small fluttering in the tree closest to my home I thought it was a small black and white bird. I don't know if this bird was looking fo...
