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 have a space in a local antique gallery near my home. I have been there about two years and work there on Sundays to offset the cost of my booth. I learned this week that the owner is moving out at the end of next month. Sadly she hasn't told the vendors save one. I am beyond angry. People are ...
My parents are both gone a very long time. Nonetheless today would have been their anniversary and when I see the date I can't help but remember them both and be grateful for who they made me. Dates mean more to me today than they once did and aging is something I have learned is not a given for ...
Today is one of those not much going on days. I seem to be at a crossroads with a number of decisions to make that are very significant. I have been thinking about these things for some time and will soon have to act on them. Life is a stretch and just when you think you have it down.....things c...
My Mercedes has not been right since I took it to my place for inspection failure. It came in perfect and after roughly $1400 of mostly labor charges for driving it to reset the computer the drivers seat no longer adjusts to my comfort and the clock is shot. There is one constant and that is a te...
It is humid now and will be hot later. I am scheduled at Tanglewood tonight at a secondary venue for YoYo Ma, Emanuel Ax and Leonidis Karakos. The program is terrific but the evening will be hard. I think this may be my last season working at Tanglewood for numerous reasons. I park in the handica...
i have had great difficulty getting and then keeping a lawn service. Typically I get about a year or two and then for whatever reason I lose them, they do damage, or they don't show up when promised or even within days of when they promise. This year I found someone new and they just stopped comi...
It is Monday and so another week begins. Yesterday was a tough day at both the antique shop and with Tanglewood. Without specifics things were difficult and I may be moving on from both. It is hard to be in someone elses venue and be subject to whims and worse. I know why being an independent con...
Now that I have a space in a local antique gallery it is essential that I find things to sell at garage and tag sales and local flea markets. People don't know how much time and money I spend on driving from one site to another to find things I can buy and fix or buy and just resell. Lately I hav...
Four weeks ago today I said goodbye to my best boy, Billy the Kid. It has been very difficult and I have been struggling. Today I finally went back to the Vet to pay my bill and bring the special food he never finished back. It was very hard but I did it. I am home and it is raining hard. Somehow...
I am soon heading out to work at Tanglewood tonight. The temperature is fine and I am hoping to be assigned to work with someone I like and be within ear shout of hearing the music. I haven't been to the venue in a couple of weeks and I am glad it isn't hot or raining. Enjoy your evening.
