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.

Yesterday I was busy with airline stuff. Mileage is a tough thing to keep up with and the frequent flyer clubs count on most people just giving up. Every airline has its own rules and none is really eager to help the consumer get what they have earned. I play this game well but it is frustrating ...
I have traveled to many exotic and interesting places. I have met people and animals that took my breath away and those that made me very very sad because of their situations. These two horses lived very different lives. The first is in Israel and was strong and proud. The second was taken in Cos...
I have for pups and each is unique and special. Margie and Finn came from different places within a week of one another. The first couple of months were a challenge because Margie was good being an only dog and Finn had lost his home, family and sister in a fire and was very introverted and scare...
I like to be out and about and enjoy working in my garden. In fall the clean up is difficult and this morning I completed the last of cutting away the dead plants. The spring requires the same diligence but for now I will just enjoy the satisfaction that clean means to me. Here are green pictures...

But I am used to looking around for animals in my midst, and there were many birds hanging around foraging for food. I have cardinals all year long and I am grateful. I also caught his friend in the gang gettin...
It was a fabulous moon last night and I am proud of the shots I got. It is hard to get good pictures with a point and shoot particularly without as steady a hand as I once had. Nonetheless, I am learning to take a lot of pictures and invariably I get at least one winner. What do you think?
I enjoyed my week in Costa Rica and took a lot of pictures with my digital point and shoot camera with a little zoom. By contrast there was a California couple with professional cameras that were huge and heavy. They snapped shots constantly and shared them with me yesterday. We photographed most...
I was only there for a week but I saw a great deal. I have shared some insights and some pictures but I have more and I enjoy sharing. So in that vain I am putting up more pictures and hoping it helps gives give you a sense of the country I visited at Thanksgiving. A Bee Hive.....Five Bats.....A ...
About five years ago I moved to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. My best friend in New Jersey, where I lived and worked for years calls it Storyville, because it is magical here. In Stockbridge, the home of famous artist and illustrator Norman Rockwell, the town is much the same as it was...
