It’s take a nap day. The days falls the Monday each year after the beginning of Daylight Savings Time in order to “catch up” for that lost hour of sleep. I couldn’t wait, I got my nap in on Sunday.

If you’re one of those who always complain about the weather forecast never being right, make your nap a little longer today. Find something else to grind about because they nailed everything on the button over the weekend….again. Be honest, did you turn on an outside light and check if was snowing before you went to bed Saturday night ?
With some pretty serious cold weather coming this week, here’s my best wishes to the orchard owners. By the way, Spring begins a week from today.
Things are a lot easier today because of technology. I remember the day when the NCAA Basketball Brackets were announced, I would have my bracket from the Newspaper all ready and write in the teams as they were announced on TV. Now, within 5 minutes (or less) you can view the bracket and print it online. I’ll have my Fearless Final Four ready Tuesday.
NASCAR went back to it’s roots Sunday with the Kyle Busch-Joey Logano scrape in the pits. Just a reminder to Busch, it’s not a good idea to attack a man with his crew surrounding him
