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.

It is going to be a tough winter. how do I know.....the animals told me so. When the critters start to gather food and fatten themselves up this early there is no question in my mind that they recognize a shift in the weather. Yesterday was hot and humid but in six weeks it won't be and these cri...
In life as in business, planning is really fundamental to good results. Every once in a while you can get lucky but usually luck is nothing more than the result of having done your homework at some point and knowing how to proceed. I always have my eyes open and listen intently when people talk. ...
I had an early appointment to have my teeth cleaned today. I am not a fan. I would rather have a filling or even an extraction but keeping my teeth clean is important. Today's appointment started with a tooth to gum assessment. It was painful and I mostly failed. Teeth are rated 1-5, with 1, 2, a...
I talk to animals, all animals: birds, bugs etc. I know that they have no idea I am talking to them or what I am saying but I do it anyway. Perhaps the tone of my voice matters but I don't really think so. I know my dogs respond to my tone but they are family and we spend a lot of time together. ...
With the heat and humidity here it has been really difficult to get a good picture because my the camera lens fogs up along with my glasses. I tried an interior to outside shot Sunday night and it wasn't good. A pretty big toad startled me on Saturday and last night again. It was really dark and ...
It is brutally hot and humid in the Berkshires today. I was going to take it easy today but not stay in. So I went out briefly this morning to water some things, and decided I wasn't going to again. I have some things to do in my home, but decided, it is Labor Day and I don't have anything to do ...
Yesterday I worked at the antique gallery where I have a space. I had accumulated a lot of things the day before and was able to get most of the stuff tagged and out on the floor. I have never had so much to do. Without the few things I am saving for the holidays and a couple of things I have yet...
I had a long but great day yesterday. I went out to garage sale it early....the first sale started at 7AM. Then I drove as far as I will go to a place that was essentially giving stuff away. I got a lot, all filthy but many interesting things. I went to a couple more sales and bought well. I had ...
Yesterday I went to about five garage sales. The first was really local and had a lot of stuff. Unfortunately the prices were outrageous. Most of the things needed work, cleaning or both. I was really taken back. The woman whose stuff it was was pushy and in your face too. I don't know how they d...
It is cloudy today and the temperature and humidity is just fine. It is a holiday weekend and there are many tag sales today. I am eager to get out and about and so I will just publish a picture and get about my day. Have a good day friends.
