I used to have a Ponytail -- Then I Sold My Horse

Well...I made a prediction that we would start climbing out of the financial doldrums when our major stock exchange climbed above 10,000 and stayed there. So far, there's been a whole bunch of bouncing around up and down. Every time it looks like the market will stay above my magic marker...down it goes for another gulp of whatever.

     Life is made up of perceptions. What we perceive as real is real in our reality. I say we're all ready to move away from this drudgery and accept a better way of life. What do you say?

A Prediction

Like predictions? Here’s one for you. I predict when the stock market goes over the 10,000 mark and sustains that level…the US economy will begin to climb noticeably out of the doldrums.

Old Growth Hippie’s can have prophecies too.

It’s like my old pappy used to say: You’ve got to be bold to be big. The only thing that ever came from doing something halfway is a half-life.

With so many folks hurtin’ from financial woes, it’s hard to be upbeat. The good news is there are a whole lot of us in this together. So how’s this…next stranger you meet on the street, smile the best one you can put together under the circumstances and say howdy. The next time you check out at the grocery or any other store, say Thank You before they do. The key here is…you’ve got to mean it. If you don’t mean it, it’s not the same.

It’s amazing how far a little unconditional consideration and appreciation goes these days.
