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 was honest and forthright here this morning and I was shunned for it. Maybe when you have read as much as I have and visited places in the world where there wasn't protest or outcries of enough, you see things more clearly. In Latvia, now a park to remember all the children killed here.What's l...
I'm sorry but I can't hold my tongue anymore. I am done being politically correct and keeping my mouth shut. Once the Nazis and Racists are recognized as fine people, I must speak. We have an imbecile as a president, small p, and he is mean and arrogant too. This has gone on too long and I fear t...
Perfect pictures are hard to get but with patience and time it can happen. I am waiting for the bears in my neighbors yard. I have seen them but can't get a clear or good shot. The one that should have been was missed because I didn't have my camera in hand and the cell didn't cut it. Everyday I ...
Some things are just beyond what words can convey. The bear in my neighbors yard is like that. My neighbors opposite my home have acres and acres of wooded land that is largely unkempt. They feed wild turkeys and I suspect the bears know it is a good place to hang. Late this afternoon I drove slo...
Wilhem is the new frog in town. I posted his picture earlier, http://activerain.com/blogsview/5098165/another-handsome-fellow, and as frogs go I think he is stunning. He is everywhere today and here are a couple more shots.Do you know what I know? It is as if he is asking that question and just w...
I was startled by this guy when I was gardening yesterday. Out of nowhere he came from the sewer line. I think he looks like a Wilhem. Big guy who stood his ground for a very very long time.I guess the word is out that I photograph animals and publish them.
I had a friend here yesterday and we did a lot of driving. We started out in one town and actually were in five different places. That said we hit a good number of antique stops and sales. Didn't buy much but what was bought was quality. Parking in Sheffield opposite a small fair, we ran across t...
Yesterday was a terrific Day. My friend arrived from New Jersey and then we went to The Mount for jazz and drinks. The Mount is the home of Edith Wharton. It is a beautiful estate with formal gardens, stables, and sculpture throughout the grounds. Many events happen at The Mount and Free Jazz Con...
I love where I live and I really love to share it with friends who come to visit. So today, weather aside is a really good day. I know there will be laughter and shopping and meals enjoyed. I don't know exactly what we will do, but I do know it is a special time and I cherish it.
I have been thinking a lot about Africa lately. I was lucky enough to visit South Africa and Swaziland a few years ago and then Kenya last year. I love animals, and seeing them in their natural habitat is nothing sort of magical. I am looking forward to visiting Uganda next year to see the Gorill...
