We woke up to -1 and snow in the forecast today. St. Patrick's Day is exactly 2 weeks away and the Milwaukee Brewers home opener is exactly 4 weeks away. Good thing they have a dome to play in. We'll have to brave the elements to chase the shamrocks!
Congrats to all the Oscar winners last night. Ellen DeGeneres did a bang up job once again. She's been an astounding Oscar host every time they've handed her the reigns.
Jimmy Buffett announced a June 28th concert stop in Chicago. He's also playing in Paris, France at the end of September. No information yet on an Alpine Valley date. Stay tuned for updates.
Buffett is also opening a new resort this summer. It's called Margaritaville Island Hotel located in the majestic Smoky Mountains. That's sounding intriguing at the moment. Well, at this very moment anything further south sounds tempting but I'm going to gather some more information on this resort.
The DOW was down over 250 points today before making a modest recovery. Investors are a bit cautious with the Ukraine situation. Some select tech stocks finished in the green today. There's always a few winners even on a bad day.

I've already got the best girlfriend in the world!
