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.

This is just one of those days when I got nothing. Every once in awhile there isn't anything I can think to write about so I just tell it like it is, without apology, and while it isn't pretty, it is life. There are days when writing is just not in my wheelhouse and today is one of those days.
Some things strike me funny and others are just odd. I have wondered lately why so many women on television and film wear sleeveless dresses in the winter? It's not like white after summer, it is just plain odd to me. It is so cold outside, I can't imagine getting up in this weather and deciding ...
Simple things matter and often make a difference. With the sub frigid temperatures and the realization that cold comes in from the head I have been playing the hat game. What is the hat game...: you know it is when you try and find the one that least makes you look like a disaster and still keeps...
You know what this is, you have no doubt done it at one point or another. Running in place is also known as being unable to get out of your own way. Why does this happen?

Another gray day is foreboding but I have plans. What I can't control is the weather, what I can control is my day. I have new tires, a really warm coat and an agenda. When you are prepared for the day it is possible to get through it. So if you are in the path of this storm, be ready, be prepare...
In my new area there are wild turkeys: huge, loud and unfriendly. I was told they used to cross my property before I moved in. I installed a fence for my three pups and while I see them all over the street, since my pups are here I haven't had them on my property. This morning, when I let the dog...
The neighbor who owns the house next door is 92 and lives in Florida now. Her son listed the property on her behalf, and it had a good deal of showings. The street is beautiful and it is private yet less than a half a mile from town. I thought the house was overpriced but apparently there was suf...
Yesterday for no particular reason, a linen closet closure stopped working. I looked at it and it still lined up, the closet wasn't stuffed ant more than usual to preclude it closing and looking at another it seemed to be in good shape. I played with it and walked away. I did this numerous times ...
It wasn't expected and it hadn't been forecast but the snow is here and the birds are going crazy. Who would have thought that the weathered ones watch or listen to the weather reports? In any event, quickly and steadily the snow has come and the birds are going nuts: flying around, stopping to p...
