Good Monday morning, my friends. I hope you are having a fantastic start to the week. My weekend was rather boring, but neither bad nor good so no complaints. As we head into the week, we’ve got a big deal coming up on Tuesday – prosecco and filet mignon, anyone?

I’m a fan of fries in any form.
National Vinyl Record Day
Fun fact: No audio data is lost when pressing a record, which does happen when audio files get compressed. That’s why records sound better.

Another fun fact: more than half of U.S. presidents were middle children.
