Well, why not start off with just plain all-around good news. According to Bloomberg:
Consumer spending in the U.S. probably rose in May for the first time in three months and home sales increased as Americans became more confident the recession will end this year.
So that's the feeling in the air across the country. What about our part of the world? Yep, it gets better. In fact, CNBC says Northeastern U.S. home sales rose almost 4 percent in May. Huge!
