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.

I don't deal well with change: I cope but I am not generally happy about it. So after finally learning to blog more and refine my thinking and incorporate more pictures matching my content, the rules have changed again. I didn't count my blogs because I could never reach twenty. Today I heard tha...
Since moving from one state to another I am seeing political ads for individuals I don't know: some for my new state, but mostly for northern New York. It is really interesting because save the big races, I have no idea which parties these people are affiliated with. I guess I can say with certai...
There are no borders that can't be penetrated by crazies who look to hurt and kill others. Today it was an innocent soldier marching by the War Memorial who died, and then others were terrorized in the Parliament and some were injured. I travel frequently and am always mindful of where I am and w...
Just one of those damp and dank days where the sun is in hiding and the temperature is less important than the chill in the air. I have been out and now I'm back, sitting in a small but cozy living room with my gas stove warming me. It's nice to be here with my pups and we are enjoying an easy af...
For days I have written about serious topics and things I was involved in. Today, not so much. This is going to be a down day, a prep day and hopefully an easy day. When I get involved and tired I try to take a break, and today is that day. Enjoy yours.
Often in the midst of confusion, and with limited time, and no resources mistakes are made. In these circumstances people get hurt or worse. We are now aware of what can happen to us if bad people think we are targets, we then are. So now what? The answer is to change the way we work as an indust...
Whether in business or in the larger world, there is always something to do. Life is a continuum, a process that goes forward no matter what, and there is always something to do. Highs and lows are but fleeting moments in a long line of experiences we encounter, but there is always something to d...
Sometimes simple things left unattended can cause big problems. Such is surely the case with gutter maintenance. If you have gutters you need to make sure they operate as intended, taking water away from your home and foundation. If gutters become blocked the perils are many and costly. I'm no ex...
I have had a tough couple of days. I couldn't get a bill from my exterminator until I fired them, my landscaper didn't come and sent a poor replacement who did more harm than good, my printer died and had to be replaced, and I got an email from the person I pay to drive me to the airport saying s...
When the main guy doesn't come and the third string guy is alone, forget about it. I had shrubs mowed over, only part of my property done, "because he only had the big mower," and nothing was blown away. I called and reached the main man, and he apologized, said there were other tools on the tru...
