Irish Eyes Are Watching

A big welcome to Ireland as they become the 19th country to visit the blog. Thank you so much! Erin Go Brah!

A sunny 70 degree day and I'm enjoying every minute of it. It could have snowed today and I'd be okay with it because the Blackhawks won last night! Coco and I watched one of the most exciting double overtime hockey games ever. It ended at 11pm so Coco was a bit of a laggard this morning. It's playoff time so you just have to deal with it because there's no guarantees. What a great night!

One more week until Jazz in the Park starts. It's a wonderful music event at Cathedral Square that about 8000 people attend every thursday. It lasts the entire summer. Traditionally the first performance is a bit chilly but we always go anyway.

Steve Ballmer retired from Microsoft a mere 4 months ago. Apparently, with so much free time on his hands he needed a hobby. So, he made a 1.8 billion dollar bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers. When your net worth is 20 billion dollars this probably seems like an affordable dabble into retirement.

Santana has a new album coming out. It's with his original band which broke up in 1972, including Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie who went on to form Journey. The album will be called Santana 4 which makes sense since they stopped at Santana 3. I saw Santana at Summerfest a few years ago and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. He is currently touring with Rod Stewart.

Krissy is on her way home and we're trying to figure out a deck staining schedule. The weather forecast has some rain forecast for sunday. I need to spray wash the deck first, get it dry, then apply 2 coats in one day. Then it needs to dry for 24 hours. So, now I'm looking at radar and 5 day forecasts!
