Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy.

Yesterday I spent the day installing a new printer. The directions were obtuse but the box had been in my entry way for months and I am having company today.

Yesterday I worked at the antique gallery where I have a space. It wasn't all that busy but something very unusual happened. A young couple came in followed by what I would soon find out was her Dad. Apparently it was the girls birthday and the young guy was her boyfriend. The Dad was walking aro...
