Black Friday is supposed to be the best in years, so that's a great economic indicator. We'll see how Cyber-Monday goes, but indicators are that it will follow the same success this year. The stock market has hit several record highs over the course of the year and last week was no exception. I'm sure when you look at your 401Ks after this weekend you'll feel a bit wealthier. Here's hoping we can sustain it for awhile.
There's still time to vote for your favorite Nominee for The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame of 2014. The top 4 are Kiss, Nirvana, Deep Purple and Yes. 5 will make up a fans ballot. (it helps a little but a fan ballot only makes up one of 600, but my thought process is that if the commitee members see how the fans voted, it could influence their hand as well...like a lobbyist)

We hear Mick Jagger is about to become a great grandfather. Which means his young 42 year old daughter is gonna be a grandmother. I guess Mick did it right. Making it to great grandfather with a relatively young grandmother daughter gives him a chance to play with the great grandkids. He's pretty healthy (he has to be to keep his energy level where it is to "Move like Jagger!" He'll be around a long, long time.
This is the guy who said in the 70's when he was 33 that he'd rather be dead at 45 than be playing "Satisfaction!" If he had died then he wouldn't have seen his daughter grow up and have kids and grandkids.
