Last week, I closed out my email that each week seems to be a new adventure. Well, this last week was no exception.

First, new cases of Covid-19 are coming down dramatically. Vaccines are continuing at a robust pace and hospital confinements are also dropping. There was an article in the Wall Street Journal that “Herd Immunity” may be reached much sooner that expected. (What else is new about predictions?). Hopefully, and I say hopefully, the lockdowns will open up more of our economy, schools may begin to reopen, and gatherings may increase in size, i.e., churches may get back to something called normal.

Say what you will about him, but we lost a voice preaching the greatness of America and its founding principles when Rush Limbaugh died last week. He created a huge following and is credited with saving AM radio. His principles are just like many of us, a chance for success, raise our families and treat everyone fairly. He did it with humor all the while professing all of us toward the goal of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

Another once in a hundred-year event took place with the freezing of Texas and the failure of their power grid. We all found out that it’s difficult for windmills to generate electricity when they’re frozen over.

NASA and its engineers hit another bullseye when the Mars lander, Perseverance, successfully touched down and began taking pictures. After traveling 292 million miles, the project hit the center of the target by exactly where the designers had aimed for. Personally, I think Texas should be calling NASA and asking the wizards of smart to help them with their power grid problems.

Finally, we’re heading into tax season, so I found an article about answering questions concerning taxes and the Coronavirus. Hope it helps.

I don’t like to repeat myself but week seems to be a new adventure so, should you have any questions or wish to speak with me, please call or email so we can put something on the calendar. Remember, the only choice is optimism, the pessimists never get it right. Hope we all have a super week.
