Monday Musings - January 27, 2014

1. 27 days into the new year and I continue to wonder why the year is passing at what seems like light speed.

2. There is something very unsettling when the lead story on the national news is about a shooting at the mall where I shop. 

3. The frigid weather is continuing. No end is in sight and unless I can find a way to get a trip to someplace warm--like the Caribbean, I will have to continue to deal with it.

4. I figured out that there are 90 days until pool opening weekend--provided the freezing weather ever goes away.

5. I think the stock market is beginning to follow the temperature.

6. Wine weekends are a great way to get away and engage in something that Chris and I both enjoy doing--especially with friends.

7. We participated in our fifth Keswick Vineyards Consensus blending weekend yesterday. We had a great time even though our wine was not selected as the Consensus champion. I learn more and more about wines and taste by participating in this event.

8. Tomorrow is a sobering day as we remember the Challenger disaster which occurred 28 years ago on January 28, 1986. 

9. Ground Hog Day and Super Bowl Sunday are the same day this year. I wonder if the ground hog will see its shadow and if that means the Denver will win the game. Is there any way to make these two items somehow related?
