The average rate of growth during this expansion has been a milder 2.3 percent per year compared to 3.6 percent during the 1990s.

As the happy couple turns off Interstate 95 at exit 8, heading east, in about two-and-a-half miles they may glance at each other in questioning surprise.

One will say to the other, “Did you hear that?”

The response will be, “I’m afraid to say but I’d swear I heard Jimmy Buffett singing one of my favorite get-a-way songs.”

"What did you hear? Wait…I think…yes, there it is again!"

Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing

Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

Wastin' away again in Margaritaville

…and in moments, on their right, they’ll spot the source of the musical fantasy.

Was it really a musical fantasy or were they caught in the aura of some mental meanderings back to simpler, happy times in 1977 when Jimmy

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices CEO, Chris Stuart, writes to us from his own blog "re_think report". If you have ever signed up to "win" anything online, your data has been sold somewhere, somehow to a third party of some sort. Here is Chris's take on it:

FOURTH OF JULY PARADE by Alfred Cornelius Howland

Fourth of July Parade by Alfred Cornelius Howland

Exhibited at the High Museum of Art—Atlanta, Georgia

After voting for independence on July 2, 1776, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision. The Declaration had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author.
