Dream and Emerald had it all worked out. Sleep the entire day and forget the world completely. Strange kind of day today. I got the local rag this morning and all they had on the front page was a negative report on how the economic downturn had affected the Dargaville Christmas Parade. Not a good way to promote Christmas cheer. For my family here we could be negative. Finances are stretched to the limit I can barely pay my mortgage and sometimes I don't sleep well at night . Somehow I know deep down everything is going to be all right. Economic downturn or not why wallow in it. Pointless. One thing I've learned in my life is to move on and keep being positive. It works.
