Rob's Indoor_Outdoor GardenWhew!

This year has definitely been one for the books.

Between the “illness”, unrest, and just general uncertainty 2020 can move anytime!

But, you know what really helps me when things get super overwhelming?

Gratitude.

Staying focused on the things that are right in front of me that I am so incredibly grateful for.  And what I’m really grateful for this year is you.

Taking this journey with me and being part of my community is the single greatest gift you could give me.

This weekend, we experienced a cold-snap going through our region.  As a precaution, I brought our outdoor greenhouse indoors.  I have really enjoyed growing a variety of plants and vegetables.  There-is-something about growing things from the smallest of seeds to the harvest.

I got off to a late start this year: so much of my harvest never happened.  I planted pole beans where peas should have been located.  I kept the tomato plants out during a hail storm, and I left the planting of lettuce, carrots, and beets too late in the season.  The sun and warmer weather will return… and the greenhouse and its plants will be put back outside for a few more days!

Next year we’ll be back… better prepared; with seedlings not seeds, with reinforced structures, proper bean poles and meshing for our peas, with protection in place from critters, insects, and the elements.

I’m reminded of this message:

“One way of motivation is to make sure someone’s expectations are higher than what they have today.
If they expect more, they will be internally motivated to fix it.”

Thank You Again for being on this journey with me!

Great mentor of mine, Darren Hardy shared this video message last week.  I’ll share it with you now…

“Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.”
—Tony Robbins

Wasn’t that just what we needed at this precise moment?  😉

You see, while people were wowed by Bitcoin last October … Amazon quietly registered two website domains.  And I believe the reason they it is because…

Amazon is on the verge of releasing its own cryptocurrency.

This could happen tomorrow… It could happen next week… or it might not happen for a couple more months.  But rest assured… Amazon Coin is coming out before the end of 2018.

And to tell you the truth, when a major player like Amazon enters the crypto market… it’s going to blow Bitcoin, Ethereum… and any other coin… out of the water.

[Thought that was news-worthy enough to share immediately!]

P.S. “Out-of-the-water!”  What a difference a year makes.  Last year at this time, our family was enjoying a visit to the Maritimes.

Magnetic Hill

If you count the Friday, the 1st day of September, is Day #1 of our vacation in the maritimes — then today would be the twelfth day!  We started the day waking in the Rodd Moncton, NB.  We don’t have a heavy driving day today!  So there was no rush in getting our continental breakfast, taking the luggage into the lobby, and checking out.  Once in the car, the ladies decided that just by the Walmart, where we needed supplies: water, sweets & ice — we would be right-next-door to Pandora.  We all know what Pandora is — and the prices in Canada are “so reasonable!”  ‘Eh’

I took the time to gas up the car, and look for a geocache in the area.  Getting back together, we gathered around Tim’s for a coffee … admiring our new Pandora charms and bracelets.  We were now ready to head to Saint John, but before leaving the area, we had to checkout Magnetic Hill.  For those unfamiliar with this “Tourist Trap,” Magnetic Hill is not really magnetic at all.  [Spoiler Alert!]  

You stop on what looks like a “downward slope” while in your vehicle — you’re told to put the car in “neutral“ and take your foot off the brake.  You expect the car to roll forward “down” the hill — when in fact it rolls backwards “UP” the hill.  It is ALL an optical illusion that is quite a bit of fun!!  Above Magnetic Hill and a better view of things … Below is where a geocache was hidden.  

Some great geocaching “here abouts!”  Look in the tree to the right for a clue.  We were able to stop for lunch at the DQ — there just so-happened to be a geocache close by.  We were stay-ing in a fabulous B&B called the Shadow Lawn Inn, Rothesay, NB [just minutes/miles from Saint John.]  You’re correct in assuming there was no elevator to take our luggage to our respective rooms on the upper floor.  Thankfully, there was lots of help from the staff.

In downtown Saint John we came across Steamers Lobster Co. where Esme and I each devoured a crab feast.  We were able to drive around and see the night activity, before returning to Shadow Lake Inn where Esme invited us to join her, in the courtyard, for a bottle of wine.  It was very warm and comfortable for this time of year!  Enjoy the pictures below taken at the location of “The Great Boat Race” Kennebecasis River, 1871.

… then tomorrow and day 13: Tall ship whale watching!!!

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect

Taking Breaks From Work … Here’s Why “Taking a break can lead to breakthroughs.” –Russell Eric Dobda You’re a hard-charger, who’s success-oriented and achievement-driven.  It takes discipline not to work.  You might have a tendency to emphasize quantity (sometimes at the expense of quality, whether you know it or not), and it seems like from the time you wake up until the time you hit the sheets, you’re “in the saddle”.  At some point or another, you might have embraced the mindset that you can sleep when you’re dead. Twelve- to fifteen-hour work days may be the norm, and even
