For some reason, there was a technical difficulty and the site would not let me send this message privately. So here it is:

Hi Margaret,

Hope this note finds you well. We been trying to survive another hot summer, although it was not as hot as years prior. I am sure it not as hot where your are located, but the winters are probably somewhat colder.

I was amazed at the real estate cost in Canada. I had heard they survived the real estate downturn better than us, but I did not realize the average is 450,000. The median price here is around 220,000 roughly. The market has come back strong, however I am not sure it will sustain. A lot of foreign investors are pouring in from Canada and other parts of the world. Also people that is getting oil rich is the U.S. are buying up properties in AZ. It has become a seller's market. The housing prices though has not reached the levels it was before the crash.

California's market is doing better also. The last time I was in California, a realtor told me the market was getting stronger. However I have heard some of the midwest market were slow. I am not sure about Florida, or any of the east coast.

One concern that I have about the U.S. economy is the valuation of currency. Our valuation is about twenty times less on the dollar than in the 1960's. It has become severely weakened in the past fifteen years. The income has just not been there in the average U.S. households to support that much variation.

The fact that the country is always pushing to weaken more, just furthers the issue. This is one of the main reasons I believe a lot of people are burdened with survival costs with little to any extra.
We as a nation also has created mass debt with little to anything to show for it.

Contacting me through the system is fine. I read a lot of posts when I find the time. I have posted trying to add input. because I know how hurtful some of this can be. I miss Ellen everyday,but somehow I know she is with me. As far as walking it alone, "i" just feel that will probably be how I will have it. There is only one person that I know could possible change the direction, but I do not see that happening. She is another fantastic person that I pray never has to walk these kind of nights. Ellen and I are soul mate forever.

Write me anytime,
