Starting Music for St. Patty's Day 2022

Aye! Top o’ da mornin’ to ya lads and lassies -and happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is Thursday, Mar. 17th –the 76th day of the year. On this Green Day ( >;} ), we are starting with cloudy skies. Other celebrations on this day include National Corned Beef and Cabbage Day, and because it’s the 3rd Thursday of the month, National Farm Rescuer/Absolutely Incredible Kid Day. Following are the weather stats from 7:45 a.m.

Forecast temps for yesterday were 40 and 69.

ONLINE SECURITY

I opt out of all unnecessary cookies, don’t do those ‘what kind of animal are you?’-type surveys, don’t ‘like’ posts my friends/family share if I can’t find/don’t trust the source, and avoid most of the ‘big media’ sites. Nonetheless, I still have to remove ‘big tech’ trackers every morning:



–and this is just my PC; it does not include my mobile devices!


THOUGHTS

Rest in Peace to my dear aunt who passed away yesterday at the young age of 65. Now she is reunited with her beloved husband and my favorite uncle. Age wise, her passing leaves my older sister and I as the matriarch and patriarch of this branch of the Forkins line.


TODAY’S ELECTRONIC TRACK

“It’s Complicated 1pt5 (Remastered)” by JiMiG2pt0 (pronounced ‘jimmy-gee-two-point-oh’). This was an early creation of mine that I’ve remastered several times. Not one of my best works, but also not one of my worst. Have a listen if you dare.

FINANCIALS

Everything that I’m watching saw mostly positive results at the close of yesterday’s markets. (NOTE: “overall” below refers to: since I’ve been tracking daily; mid-January for MTCH and T; mid-February for VMEO).



TKR – temporary replacement for MTCH


The Minds coins cryptocurrency (based on Ethereum) was also up this morning, approximately +$0.07 again to ~$1.27/coin; -$1.60/coin overall


Check out Stockpile for traditional shares because you can order by a dollar amount instead of whole shares and build from there.


THE WRAP/MUSICAL START

Well, that’s a wrap. I’ll be starting the day off with the next song in my Spotify playlist (Randomly Cool Big List No.1), “Bridge of Sighs” by Robin Trower. Originally, this was the 2nd track on the album of the same name. Guitarist Robin Trower said, "It was the name of a horse, which is how I discovered it. I was in the middle of writing that piece of music, and I was reading the paper one day, and there was a horse at a horse race that was recommended as a favorite, and it was called Bridge of Sighs," he said. "I just thought, 'Wow, what a great title for a song.'


Other references for the title include the Ponte de Sospiri Bridge in Venice and a poem with the same title by Thomas Hood.


Remember, Fear is the Mind-Killer, Don’t Panic, Keep Your Head Right with Ball, and May God be gracious to you and bless you and make His face shine upon you.
