It's a half-full glass in the monthly Architectural Billing Index from the American Association of Architects.

The national index hit 55.2 in September, up from 53.0 in August. The other two indexes AIA reports, inquiries and new contracts are also up.

These data are a nine- to 12-month leading indicator of anticipated construction starts.

In the West region, which includes Arizona, the index in September dipped slightly to 54.2 from 54.4 in August, but the index for the region is in the fourth month of a rebound from declining trends from April and May.

1. The Mobile Lemonade Stand

When your seven year old starts strategically placing (and moving) his or her lemonade stand in efforts to bring in the big bucks, you might have a deal-maker on your hands. An innate sense of the importance of location is a clear sign that a kid has a closer’s charisma running through their veins. My son Keenan used to have a lemonade stand he would
