(this is a Richard Leo Johnson photograph)

I  learned to look at life with a Positive Attiutide. My father taught me the importance of this and I have carried it thru in every thing I do.
When I began restoring houses .. that "looking at things and seeing the best..and not the worst" has guided my career . Dr Norman Vincent Peale wrote about him  in his book ,The Amazing Results of Positive Thinking.
When I see an old house for the first time, I look for the best qualities .( they may be hidden deep within but trust me ..THEY ARE THERE !
Here are a few of the results of that thinking…..
