The Lazy Days of Summer – A Dog’s Life


We are packing up here in Kelowna B.C. to begin our long journey back home to CT. It has been a great summer…. and no one enjoyed it more than our dog Sunnie! Don’t you sometimes wish you had a dog’s life? Pictured here, on the boat, in the middle of Okanagan Lake it is clear that she does not have a care in the world. I am trying to take a big deep breath as I think ahead of all the craziness that lies ahead when I return home – months of mail, the start of the school year, work, projects I kept on the back burner. All Good as my brand new friend MJ would say… all good.

Enjoy these last few days of August!

Lamont – My First Music Entry


Today a dear friend, gifted musician, brilliant songwriter and an outstanding human being launched his third musical release. Lamont leads the group TEN SHEKEL SHIRT and his new cd is called JUBILEE. Buy it now on Amazon. I have had the pleasure of hearing the whole album and yet again Lamont’s words moved me like few other artists ever have. He chooses to write songs that inspire, liberate and empower. His previous two CDs are also excellent and won him and his band much acclaim in the Chrisitian Music Catagory.

In his spare time Lamont pours his immense energy in to trying to make the world a safer place for women and children escaping slavery around the world. Check out LOVE146.
May God Bless you Lamont, your band, your beautiful family….. Thank you for being the change that you want to see in the world.

Spread the word. Buy Jubillee.

Home Prices

I was scanning the headlines this morning and read this piece on the most recent home sales data in the US. The numbers were so shocking that I feel compelled to link to it. Here it is. I continue to think that the worst is not over for the equity markets overall, or for the US economy. The housing market has to hit bottom and show signs of recovery before everything else can follow. Consumption is what drives drives growth and in the US the average consumer has been using their home equity as a checking account. That party is over and will be for a long time to come.
