Good "Summer Solstice" to you all.  Yes it's the 21st of June, which is the longest day of sunlight for the year.  While that sounds innocent enough, the fact is that throughout history, the Summer solstice has been associated with "harvest, sex and fertility".

For thousands of years, all manner of interesting customs have been passed from generation to generation, and almost universally it involves romance and sex.

Morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

Again I thank all of you for the well wishes for my mom and my Aunt. My mom grew up with two sisters and a brother, and they have always been close. One reason my mom and dad moved to Florida 30 years ago was so that mom could always see her sister, and they only live a mile from her. One sister passed about 6 years back, so seeing this sister in the hospital has really shaken her.

Morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Last night got a little "Misty" at our place, as we got the news that my Uncle Rob had lost his 2 year battle with cancer. It wasn't a surprise that he was going to pass, but even when you know it's coming, when it does, it affects you.  Thank you to all that wrote in with well wishes for my mom and my uncle.

Good morning all, I hope your weekend was terrific. Mine was not. 

This past week I had taken my mom to the doctors twice, for a nasty "goopy" cough, and Friday they didn't like it at all. So, Mom spent Friday afternoon/night, Saturday and Sunday in the Hospital. We got her back Sunday evening, but frankly she didn't look as well as I'd hoped. 
On the Uncle front, we got a call Friday night that he's taken a really bad turn for the worse. Poor guy, the end is very near.  I truly hate cancer.

Good morning all, another Friday has rolled up on us and for me, it just didn't get here fast enough. 

First off, thank you to all those who wrote in to give best wishes for my Mom and my Uncle. While it's a given that my Uncle will be visiting with the Lord sometime soon, my Mom's a tough old gal, and we got her shot up with some antibotics and some congestion medicines. At her age, they like to do all manner of things at the doc's, like x-rays, blood tests, etc. It seems like a run of the mill virus with a bit of bacterial infection mixed in, so we should be okay.

Morning all. 

This is not how I wanted my day to start. As I mentioned to you all on Monday, my Uncle Rob is losing a battle with cancer. Last night things got worse, and I think the stress really weighed on my mom. The poor gal was up all night, coughing and hacking. That's disturbing for an 89 year old, and she's not doing very well this am.  I suspect that I'll be taking her to the doc's today. 

Okay, so the futures are green at 8:00 am. That's pretty interesting because of the news we got out of Europe.

Hello all, it's Wednesday. Fed day. Hike day. 

Yesterday the market shrugged. No one on Wall Street seemed to care about the North Korea summit meeting between Trump and Kim. No, they were in pause mode, waiting for the federal reserve results of their two day meeting. Well, we get that decision this afternoon.

Good morning all, welcome to an amazing time in history. 

Because Asia is on the other side of the earth, it was  last night that Trump and Kim Jong Un met up and signed a declaration. The nay sayers are already all over the airwaves saying that there was nothing concrete, no hard facts about inspections, etc. etc.

Good morning all, welcome back from the weekend. I certainly hope it was a great one for you all! I would love to tell you that the wife and I had an exciting weekend, exploring some new place. But alas, I cannot. We had planned on doing something fairly fun and exciting for Sunday afternoon, but you know how it is, sometimes life gets in the way. Thus plans had to change, as some family issues cropped up. So, instead of coming home from church and getting ready to take a nice bike ride, we spent the afternoon on phones.

Good morning everyone, welcome to yet another Friday. Once again, this week has flown by me, catching me off guard. 

Okay, so yesterday was, well, odd to say the least. They didn't like tech any more, Piled into the DOW and couldn't figure out what they wanted to do with the S&P. So when it was over, the DOW had 95 new points, the S&P lost 2. The NASDAQ was the dog of the day, at one point down 90.
