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 guess the winter nap is over. Two nights ago I saw the first one but couldn't get a photo without putting myself in danger. Last night I knew when they would come to feed so I waited. The bear and I made eye contact but most of the closer pictures were too dark to see him. This was the first sh...
Much of my life is spent in waiting for something to happen, show up or be revealed. Next week I will be celebrating my 70th birthday. My Father never made it it this far and my Mom didn't live much longer either. I am not taking anything for granted and after a tough couple of months I have deci...
I remember enjoying spring when I lived in New Jersey. Since relocating to Massachusetts, what have I have experienced is different here. April is generally referred to as mud season here. But tomorrow....tomorrow a nor'easter is forecast for my area. Anything is possible and since there has even...
Little things can make me really happy. Two days ago a neighbor who had worked for a contractor I knew came by. He helps me do things I am unable to tackle myself: roof raking the snow, fixing doors etc. I have a number of trees in my yard and I love hanging things from them. Some of the branches...
It was a lousy day yesterday at the Antique Gallery. Just like life, sales are often difficult and replete with barriers. As I write this, I am bummed but after I am finished, it will be over.

They are things I would have in my own home if I were at a different point in mt life. Here are some of my newly acquired things ava...
Looking around is something I like to do. Getting a good moon shot has never been easy for me but I continue to try. Below are two I took recently. The first one was on a big moon night. The second was taken early in the morning a couple of days later.Note the bird flying by.
I am pleased to say that a few of the people who follow me have asked to see some more items from my space at the Antique Gallery where I work on Sundays. I have some things a long time and others come in and go right away. Part of the trick is moving things around constantly so I am in more than...
I recently bought a new shredder so that I could rid myself of excess paper and clear room for files I still use. Beginning with old income tax returns and supporting expenditure files I then moved to my production materials. It was bittersweet. I remembered the transactions the people, the prope...
I have a lot of things to shred today so I can make room for taxes from the last seven years in storage. After that I will purge the information I have accumulated that I know I will never use again. Once that is done I am off to the dump.If the weather gets above 50 I have some painting to do of...
