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.”

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!!!

Good morning. The pandemic and ongoing supply chain issues that stemmed from it have reversed a 40-year trend of globalization.  That trend created a level of efficiency that arguably acted deflationary by keeping prices from rising as much as they would have otherwise. Today, the trend is de-globalization as supply chains return home.  These forces are inflationary, as they result in many supply chains instead of one large global one.  That can benefit some, such as those who would not have had a job in their home country otherwise.  But it also means higher prices for goods and services.  That’s

Good morning. Last year, we cautioned that low interest rates and historically low mortgage rates wouldn’t last.  If you timed the bottom in rates last year perfectly, mortgage rates were about half of what they are today.  As that trend looks to continue higher, housing is starting to show signs of slowing down as well. For those who own their homes, that may mean a drop in the home’s value.  If you’re not looking to sell anytime soon, that’s not a problem.  But for investors, this can mean an opportunity to get into the housing market in the next few

Good morning. The market rally of the past few weeks has helped take stocks off their recent lows.  On Friday, stocks recovered a full 50 percent of their losses from the market top. Many traders view a 50 percent retracement as a sign that a market rally is sustainable, and not just a bear market rally that could end up leading stocks lower.  In short, this is the strongest “all clear” signal yet following weeks of the market trending higher. While this is usually a bullish sign… such signals also tend to occur when interest rates are falling or flat,

Today! August 13, 2021 Good morning. The latest jobs numbers are looking good, with fewer new claims being filed and unemployment dropping.  But there’s a critical mismatch: There are still over 10 million job openings and as many as 12 million still receiving some kind of unemployment benefit. The Fed has committed to keeping the monetary spigot open while the labor market is under full employment, but some will always be between work or unable to work.  This mismatch may start to resolve itself later in the year, as extended federal unemployment benefits end in states that didn’t end the

Good morning. Oil prices have been driven by an imbalance between supply and demand for the past few years.  While OPEC has looked to gradually raise output, the cartel is now expecting markets to move into surplus this year.  That’s in contrast to other estimates right now. OPEC’s research may be the first step towards moving to cut its total output, potentially later in the year by likely some time in 2023.  That could help put a floor under oil, which has ranged as low as $90 recently after getting as high as $120 earlier in the year. While oil

Good morning. It finally happened.  After months of rising higher and higher on an annualized basis, inflation has finally cracked.  While the market liked the read of “only” an 8.5 percent year-over-year increase, it’s still incredibly high by any standard. And inflation is cumulative.  So the longer it’s higher than average, the more destructive it will be for investors over time.  While it’s a sign of good news, getting inflation down faster still means the economy will need to see a bigger slowdown from where it’s at now. So while markets jumped on the news, it’s possible that as the
