Finally, our weather has cooled so we can expand our living spaces to patios, gardens and backyards. After work and on weekends we can retreat outside to enjoy the warm days and cool evening breezes we look forward to from now until next May. Weekends mean we can invite family and friends over for those famous Arizona barbecues. Special celebrations can now be planned such as an assortment of parties, fundraisers or even an intimate wedding.
In 1945 all of the industrial nations met in Breton Woods, N.H., to discuss currencies in a global environment. These nations decided that the American dollar should be the international currency, because it was gold backed, America was the leading manufacturing giant, and was a responsible country. All of these nations pledged to peg their currency to the dollar, as it was gold backed, making their currency gold backed. Things changed through the years, as in 1971 Nixon removed the gold backing from the dollar, showing irresponsibility to the rest of the world. America then started to expand its money supply from $800 billion to $2.4 trillion (in 2010). So, we made a conscious decision to inflate the dollar by 200 percent. Forcing all of the countries that were pegged to the dollar to expand their money supply, in order to keep the same currency conversions.

As Santa stuffs his sleigh with popular or big ticket items this year, he may be in for a “Bah, humbug” unless he takes certain insurance precautions. Gift-givers may be “Scrooged” when they realize that some gifts may cost homeowners extra on their insurance premiums, or may not be covered at all.
Denial’s worked pretty well for me so far. But as I type with trembling fingers, reality is seeping in. Just after Christmas, my family is moving. To Seattle. I know. From sunshine to rain. But then, change is as inevitable as the lights that twinkle along Chandler Boulevard during the holidays each year. And so, I have to embrace one more in a long lifetime of transitions.
Quincy Taylor has always been good at the transition game.

So here we are, December, again. As I get older it certainly seems to get here faster every year. I feel like I was just chatting with folks about what may happen in real estate in 2013. It turned out we had some interesting things happen here in our market. The year started off strong with lots of appreciation and a great demand from buyers. The buying frenzy continued through June until it sort of fell off a cliff in the summer. When we usually see the October pick up, the government shut down for three weeks and that changed the typical cycle for that time of year. We had a nice increase in buyer interest towards the end of the year and from what we can see now the spring season will be typical for our area.
About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.
It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking Disney. Sure, many of us go through a phase where we think we’re too old and sophisticated for Mickey Mouse. This typically leads to our pretentious cynic phase in which our college professors open our eyes to all the stereotypes and “hurtful ethics” Disney has endorsed over the years. Films like “Escape from Tomorrow” haven’t exactly helped the company’s image either. At the end of the day, though, nobody can outrun the magic, good will, and sheer lovability attached to Disney. There isn’t a cold-hearted soul that can’t be completely won over by the mouse house … except maybe P.L. Travers, the author of “Mary Poppins.”
