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 have really enjoyed Dick Greenberg's Photo Contest this month. I entered early in the month and then was encouraged do so again by supportive friends who commented on other pictures I posted just for fun.I took this photo in Kenya last year. I love it because it is whimsical and something you c...
I travel a lot. One of the most amazing places I save ever seen was in Greece and it is Meteora. Located in the mountains, the shere beauty is awe inspiring. To say that the place is breathtaking is truly an understatement. The most incredible thing about it is that there are numerous structures ...
I have an appointment this morning for a Yellow Fever shot. I have avoided this in the past because for folks of a certain age (like me) it is more likely to trigger Bells Palsy. I planned trips with this in mind and avoided areas where the shot was required. Then I decided I was going to see Gor...
I love animals and I love Africa. I have been lucky enough to be in South Africa, Swaziland and Kenya. I have also been to Morocco but that is another story. Last year in Kenya I saw my first close up and personal. I saw many after this including some with an entire pride, but like so many things...
I have already entered Dick Greenberg's contest in the real life area: animal category. I am happy with the picture of the frog I submitted. The other day I happen to get what I consider to be a wonderful sunset picture in my own yard. I published it in a blog and was really proud of it. Sharon T...
I currently have four pups and they are all rescues. It matters to them and to me for sure. Each is very special and each is there own special dog. This is my newest rescue Chico. He came to me from a cat rescue from NYC where he was scheduled to be killed. When I got him he was very sick, but n...
When the weather turns the pups are not big into lolly-gagging about outside. They go and check out the neighbors, bark at the pups next door and then they are ready to come back in. If I'm not there immediately, they look for me and bark as if to say, OK I don't have all day let's go. So this is...
Every day presents an opportunity to do better, to be better and to see what is new and share it. Last night I saw this. I'm pleased because it looks just like what I saw. Sometimes the picture doesn't look like the reality. Just below the red sky is a mountain I haven't seen in months. It only s...
I admit it: I am a sky watcher. I see pictures and beauty in moving clouds and fallen leaves. I took this shot earlier today. It didn't last long but I now have it forever. What I like best is that there is nothing stagnant in the sky, it is ever changing and I like that a lot.
It is overcast, windy and damp today. One of those days when the air cuts right through you. There will be a hard frost tonight and tomorrow I will be busy with the remainder of my annuals: recycling my dirt and getting rid of my throwaway pots. I can't bring myself to do this today. Life is real...
