The recession is over.

I have decided that I’ve heard enough positive news about the stock market, housing starts, banks recovering, etc. that I’m convinced that we are on our way back from a tough period in America.

It was scary for a short time as we watched and listened to the media tell us what could happen to our economy. But we Americans listen, respond and are willing to do whatever we need to do to get things back on track.

We are doing it now and I’m very happy for our country, my family and my company. Times like this make us appreciate what we have and where we live. I’m proud and ready for great times ahead . . . for everyone.

Happy 4th of July.
