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 relatively warm here today but there will be more snow before very long. I lost a good portion of my favorite wind spinner during the many wind storms in the last couple of weeks. I got a couple more but they weren't right for the space. A local bird shop is closing because the owner is ret...
This is a rant so you can stop reading if you are not in the mood. I have a Audi Q5 Hybrid. It is an SUV type vehicle and I bought it used but with an extended warranty. The warranty ended. Three days ago the visor clip on the drivers side broke. It is plastic and needs to be replaced. I went to ...
It is a question to always ask and one that all relies upon. If you are a professional you need to focus on the goal at all times and not be distracted by the small stuff or the things in a transaction that don't really matter. Early on I learned that if there wasn't a deal to be made the other s...
In western Massachusetts there are four seasons: fall, winter, summer and mud season which typically happens after winter and before the summer. For three years now there hasn't been a spring. Instead just when winter appears to be waning.......here it is mud, mud mud. It is messy and annoying. I...
It has been a very long and trying couple of weeks so tonight I am going to my favorite place for pizza after a Caesar salad. Simple things can sometimes be the best.

How much do you want it? My view is that almost anything is possible if the desire is real and the commitment sincere. I am working on a couple of things with limited time. I have decided I am going to give it my all. It is good to have an agenda. Got to go, working it now.
I have almost every critter here in my western Massachusetts area. Bunnies are plentiful and seen most of the year. This sweetie was by him or herself the other day in the wind and the heavy snow. I wanted to feed him but he ultimately curled up in a balland as I went out ran away.
This has been a brutal winter in the Berkshires. The temperatures have been frigid and the winds very serious. On Friday it was like Spring here and I spent a lot of the day putting together and installing a new wind spinner while I could get it in the ground. I also did some yard clean up and to...
They are here everyday. When the weather is particularly brutal they move around a lot and then seem to find a place to cluster together. A few days ago they were busy running from their normal spot to my side of the street. There were probably a dozen or more and they were really booking so I wa...
What is deliberation....? I believe it is thinking on steroids and or with the benefit of hindsight. One of those days for me. Contemplating something but I can't seem to pull the trigger. Generally when I hesitate it is for a good reason I can't always put my finger on but in retrospect is the r...
