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…

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. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

01-JANUARY 21-2022

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
