Monday Musings - January 8, 2018


1. It is the second Monday of 2018. It is hard ti believe that a week in the new year has been completed.

2. It was 12 degrees warmer this morning than last with a temperature of 12.7 degrees. 

3. It was amazing that both the Mega Millions and Power Ball jackpots were hit on successive days for more that $400 million each. There are two very happy people out there.

4. Chris and I spent a busy Sunday watching sports. We watched most of the NFL playoff games and also were treated to two youth basketball games won handily by our grandsons' teams.

5. I have found a couple interesting articles for headlines this morning. I intentionally stayed away from the politically charges headlines of the past few days because, frankly, I'm tired of the same finger pointing and accusations that continue to be replayed in the media.

6. The cold is supposed to break this week and we are expecting temperatures above freezing for the first time since December 30th when the temperature crawled up to a balmy 33 degrees.

7. Wouldn't it be nice to have a beach home in St. Croix or almost any Caribbean Island right now?

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week


"It was once written that America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great. I have no fear that the character and generosity of our people will erode. But I am concerned that we don't draw from that deep well of compassion and goodness nearly enough. Together, we can bring back the recognition voluntary action, private initiative, once enjoyed. We will remind the American people of how good and how great they really are. And in so doing, we will ensure our inner strength for generations to come."
