Feel-Good; Pass It Around; Cystic Fibrosis

inspirational_storyInspirational Story:  I’m not sure you saw this on Friday so I’m posting it again…it might be a little sappy but it’s a feel-good story and who doesn’t need that occasionally:  Inspirational Story.  Here’s a funny scene that is absolutely not inspirational from The Family Fued: Name Something You Pass Around.

American Idol. The top 2 singers in American Idol are extraordinary…Candace Glover and Amber Holcomb.  Those two will go on to be mega superstars…no question.  In third place is Kree Harrison…she will bring country back to mainstream…mark my words.  And in 4th place is Angie Miller who is very talented but will need good song writing and great management to be successful.  But the other three, they could sing virtually anything…their voices are pure.  Here are some highlights from last night:

Amber Holcomb in my favorite performance of the night singing Barbara Streisand’s “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life” – arguably a flawless performance.

Candace Glover bravely performs Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston’s “When You Believe

Angie Miller surprisingly pulls off Beyonce’s “Halo

Kree Harrison didn’t have a memorable night in my opinion but here is a beautiful performance from last week “Help Me Make It Through The Night

My Market Watch:  Pricing is the same as Friday. The market is flat and there are no pertinent reports scheduled. I expect a slow day in the markets.

My Schedule:  I have an appointment at 11a this morning in Irvine but should be available all afternoon. Please note, I rarely answer my phone before 10:30a as I use this time to catch up on the previous day’s business and prepare the remainder of the day….

fergusonsCure for Cystic Fibrosis.  Our family is walking again this year to find a cure for CF, a life-limiting illness. We walk for our friends pictured, Ashton (age 11) and Lola (age 7). The average life expectancy of someone with CF is 37. Let’s change that!  Help us to raise money for a cure.  JOIN ME – WALK WITH MY FAMILY ON MAY 19, or, to donate: click here.  THANKS!
