It has been a while since I added to my Blog collection. (Sorry about that) I hope that you all have been well and have received your vaccines. Covid has changed a lot of things in our lives over this past year for everyone. But now things are getting closer to the new normal.

Now that the restrictions are being lifted, we are planning to have our annual wine tasting event in October. I hope that all of you can come. We have some serious tasting to make up for. We will be sending out the invitations around August.

Also, softball season has started! Yup, the Cape Cod Senior Softball League is in full swing. This year I am playing for a Landscape supply company. I feel like a walking billboard when I am on the field. The shirt is like the ones you buy at diners the read “Eat now at Ernie’s and taste it later” Talk about advertising abuse. But the league is fun, and it is great to see the guys again.

Now for some business.

As you may have noticed, the market is all over the place. Bitcoin drove the market down not too long ago also affecting Technology. I still believe that Tech is a viable place to be right now as well as small Cap. Also, it looks as though there will be changes to the tax laws. Some of which include a raise in the tax brackets and the required distribution moving from age 72 to age 75. As soon as they become law, I will let you know what they are and how they will affect things.

I hope that you all have a great Memorial Day weekend and I hope to see you all soon.

Thanks for reading my blog and stay safe!
