The DOW is down, the economy is tanking and consumer confidence is in the toilet. It seems that everywhere you look it is doom and gloom. But wait, what is that I got in the mail? It is an invitation to the wedding and reception of my good friend of 10 years John and his lovely bride to be Ida. L...
It seemed like it would never arrive...Here it is, Election Day 2008!  Can you believe it? Haven't we all been waiting for this day for 8 years or does it just feel like that?  Two weeks ago, I spent several hours going through my ballot, trying to decipher what choices to make. I am comfortable ...
I can't believe that a year has passed since my family and I were forced to evacuate our home in Silverado, CA. Last October, some idiot (or idiots, no arrests have ever been made) decided it might be fun to start a fire in three separate spots near the mouth of our canyon during fierce Santa Ana...

Our society as a whole is caught up in hav...

We need to dig deep and summon courage in an effort to survive.  Case in point... my Mother.  Mom was first d...
As I stated yesterday, I don't have to look too far to get inspiration. I have a set of framed lithos, each with their own inspiration phrase.  We are all currently challenged in this market...  CHALLENGE - The harder the (golf) course, the more rewarding the triumph.  For everyone out there that...
If you want to be inspired, you need to open your mind. We are all gifted in many ways, but sometimes are minds are too closed to see the inspiration that is all around us.  I don't have to look far to get inspiration. I have inspirational signs all around my office. Let me share some of them wit...
The $700 Billion bailout became the $810 Billion bailout. So, what's $110 Billion between friends? Will banks resume lending? We can start the recovery right now, can't we? Before that happens, home prices must stop falling. The excess inventory of REO homes must continue to cycle through. These ...
