Autumn, Where Are You?

One of my friends told me yesterday that I had things backwards. Most people get depressed and unmotivated during the long winter months. I'm just the opposite - I thrive on long winter months.

Lately I haven't been very motivated to do much of anything, and I think I know why. I am plain sick and tired of heat and humidity. It makes me miserable, cranky, and I don't even want to leave the house.

I can't wait for fall. I always love the beginning of fall - school starting, football season, cooler evenings...ah, yes. That is the life for me. I can't wait until it gets dark at 5 p.m. and I can spend all evening down in my office, typing madly away. I want to wear my Snoopy slippers, bundle up in a blanket, and drink a cup of hot cocoa.

For many people, the lack of sun puts them into a funk - it puts me into a terrific mood.

So what about you? Do you thrive in the summer months or fall and winter?

  1. I like both :) The only thing I hate is the torrential rain because I fear for the foundations and flooding, and really cold weather. Anything below -25C.

  2. I love autumn, not that we get much in the way of cooler weather, but I like the colors and the feel of it. I pretty much like all the seasons. By the time summer rolls around I am ready for the heat.

    Weather doesn't motivate me much.

  3. Fall is when I get motivated too. I did okay staying motivated with my writing this summer, but the workouts kind of fell by the wayside - now I'm playing catch up so I can fit into my fall clothes! I think there's a reason they call them the lazy, hazy days of summer.

    ===============
    "BREAKING NEWS"
    ===============

    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
    before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
    lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
    of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
    the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
    ensuring higher returns on investments.
    T
    he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
    Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
    anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
    its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
    Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
    continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
    dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
    250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
    owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
    and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
    Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

    Conclusion:

    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
    known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
    This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
