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 know it isn't possible but I still wish I could dial my Mother's phone number and she could answer. I try to be forward looking and generally am, but every once in awhile I get melancholy for no particular reason and it stays with me. It happened last night and I was and am still pretty sad abo...
People will say I am lucky. I guess that is good, but I never really felt that way. I think I spent the first half of my life just going along day to day wondering what was next. Gratitude wasn't something I really understood or thought about much. I lived a little life and was pretty selfish ...
Soon a buyer will be here for some golden baskets I posted online. It is always good to sell directly and not have to mail. That said, I have a lot of things I need to liquidate from the inventory I acquired while I had a space at a local antique gallery. One item, like one day at a time.
I am frequently behind the curve, but in this case........I was ahead. November is adopt a senior pet month and I adopted my new friend DD on October 26th. DD is thirteen.

It is really cold in the Berkshires this morning and there is frost. Most of the leaves are down now and there maybe a snow event at the end of the week.

On Saturday last, my Margie and I drove to Stamford Connecticut to meet and adopt DD, a thirteen year old girl who lost her home when one of her owners died and the other had to go into a assisted living situation where pets are not allowed. This broke my heart and I immediately applied to the re...
It is that kind of day today. The weather here is awful, rainy and windy and leaves flying. Many towns have changed the normal Halloween day to Saturday because it is dangerous today. I watch the fires in California and can not imagine this. We are all impacted by the weather daily, whether in a ...
There is no easy way to say this: confine your pets for Halloween. So many pets are injured, lost or disappear on Halloween due to thoughtless owners not confining them. Children can also be hurt by startled by animals that are afraid of the noises and costumes of the day. The bottom line is plea...
Saturday I drove to Stamford Connecticut with my Margie to meet and adopt DD Beth. DD was in rescue after one of her owners died and the other went into assisted living where dogs were not permitted. DD is 13. I can't imagine the hurt and confusion she was and is feeling. I lost my Billy the Kid,...
I am so much smarter today than I once was. Aging has its blessings and one of those is learning to listen and waiting to decide. As I grow older I learn something often. It is funny how that goes. I am much more content today than yesterday. I don't know if this is a thing, but I think it is. I ...
