Thoughts While Shaving

Happy New Year, 2019.

Time for inventory, are you better off today, financially than a year ago, 5 years ago?

Gator Bowl results:   Texas A&M 53 – NC State 13.  Trayveon Williams ran for 236 yards, scored 3 touchdowns, and broke a 30-year-old A&M school record leading the Aggies to the victory…..

New Year parties are over, more football today.

Outback Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Citrus Bowl, Rose Bowl, & Sugar Bowl.

New Year’s day forecast for Bladen County, 2019.  Chance of showers (30 percent), high near 74 with southwest wind 6 to 10 mph, becoming west later today.  No huge changes thru the week, daytime temps drop slightly, later.

January averages for Bladen….Average high 54 degrees, average low 31 and average rainfall is 3.82 inches.  Average yearly rainfall is 49.27 inches.

A reminder, again, 2018 property taxes were due September 1, a penalty will be added if not paid by January 7, 2019.

Tomorrow, schedules should begin to return to normal after all the holidays…

If you make a New Year’s resolution to eat a healthy diet, and you keep it, you won’t actually live longer, but it will seem longer.

May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.

My New Year’s resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.
