Good luck and May God bless

I listen to most advice but act on a few. I will take credit for all right decisions but blame others for the wrong ones. Life is a beautiful thing like a bowl of cherries so what I am doing in the pits?

James if your looking to invest in the high desert you have made a great choice, the demographics of the high desert, show growth over the past 18 months.
