As if it ever ends. Mercifully, the democrat national nominating convention ended Thursday night with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris accepting their party’s nomination to be candidates for President and Vice President, respectively. This week comes the republican version.

I didn’t spend a lot of time (zero to be exact) watching and will most likely repeat again this week. However, for those of us that missed some or all of the action, I have added an article, which mirrors Joe Bidens tax ideas, of the VP candidate’s thoughts on the topic. Enjoy the read.

I’ve also added an article about how our economy seems to be gathering steam. Existing home sales is one indicator, they were up 24.7% for the measured time frame, for an improving economic picture. And, the equity markets, another leading economic indicator, seem to point to a return to what will be our new normal.

Personally, Jean & I just helped send one of our granddaughters, Jenna, to her first semester at the University of Western Kentucky. Needless to say, it was a big day for her and a proud day for her mother, Laura. Some of her classes are in-person and some are virtual, a very different picture from my first days at a major college in Michigan. We hope and pray for her to enjoy, learn and experience a new life outside the family environment.

In spite of all the news and noise, I continue to focus on what I can do and what’s important in life. As always, should you have any questions or wish to talk and/or meet with me, please don’t hesitate to email, or call.
