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 good day to refresh and if necessary recharge. Seasons come and go, but fortitude comes from within. Whether impacted by adversity or frigid temperatures, digging in and moving forward is the only way to go to get where you want to be. I am ready for this day and the next. If I am luck...
Another frigid morning of another snowy weekend. This is the fourth in a row. I am thinking about planning a trip to somewhere different and somewhere warm. South America is pretty high on my list and I will see what I can find. I want to go to the Amazon and this seems like a really good time to...
I had a funny day yesterday. I hadn't received a package from my accountant, and I was worried because I couldn't reach him. I used to work with this guy some thirty years ago and I have worked with him ever since. I emailed him and left numerous phone messages and was beginning to think he was d...

A friend will pick me up and wherever we go it will be a change of scenery and a meal I didn't cook. It's the simple ...

Watching Antiques Road Show is a great opportunity to see many things that I have never se...
As many of you know I have three dogs, all rescues and all precious. My middle one is Finn and and he lost his previous home to a fire along with a sister I never met as she was adopted before I found Finn and made him part of my family. When he first came he was shy, thin and totally withdrawn. ...
It is not complicated. It is simply a matter of being able to move forward or not. Agents often want to tell their clients to make a decision already: sometimes they even do. But decision making is fundamental to everything. Will I get out of bed now or sleep five more minutes? Will I spend time ...
This is getting really tiring and I am not going to write about it anymore. Yesterday before the snow feel in earnest and the wind began to really blow, this guy landed long enough for me to catch. He was happy to puff up and take a load off, but it didn't last long. Enjoy the day.
