Dear Ones!


Hey, guess what? I'm selling my beautiful house!


Why, you ask?


Because I'm a weirdo and I need to move every few years…and it's time to move!


Happily, I'm staying in Frenchtown. I am literally just moving 1/4 of a mile down the road. (That is the full extent of my weirdness: All this...

Sandra Baublitz Sandra Baublitz's blog:
For years we have been told that stocks average 9-10% a year. Bonds are supposed to average 5% a year. Continued weakness in the economy and historically low interest rates raises the question of whether these averages will hold true for the future.

There's ice on the marsh
today, wind whitecapping
the bay. Hard blue, water
the color of cold, bright
as a school girl's eyes

David Baldacci David Baldacci's blog:

“Baldacci has been on a hot streak for the past few years,” says the Richmond Times-Dispatch, “and ‘The Target’ continues the trend. This isn’t a garden-variety thriller or even a garden-variety Baldacci. It’s among his most exhilarating books yet.” Read the review.
