I saw some financial reports lately that are encouraging. In March new car sales were way up from Febraury and from the same time last year. Also (and maybe most important) the eceonomy actually created jobs in March. This is the first time in many, many months (years) that more jobs were created than were lost. Maybe things are starting to move in the right direction. The only drag on the reports was the housing market; still not doing very well. I am happy to report that in my office, at least, there appears to be a small "up-tick" in contracts and activity.
Onward and upward-
