Every month has its days to honor individuals, events and objects. January celebrates the births of Martin Luther King, Jr., Paul Revere, Sherlock Holmes, Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, and the Rubber Duckie from Sesame Street. The month is also tagged as National Puzzle Day, Popcorn Day, Milk Day and Hat Day. January 15 is National Hat Day.Whether seen as fashion or simply as a cover to protect one's head from the heat or the cold, hats have been around at several thousand years. Hats have been constructed of fur, straw, feathers, knitted or crocheted fabric, gold (think Egyptian headdresses),... [Read More]

Most of today's stock speculators don't remember the bond vigilantes and wouldn't even recognize one in the flesh. They were just too scary to have been a character on Sesame Street. But last night some strange riders were spotted galloping eastward from China and Japan. While their visage may be somewhat foggy to the uninitiated, the boys and girls on Wall Street are about to discover that it's not exactly Big Bird swooping onto their playground. And at precisely the worst time. After all, the 150 Dow point melt-up each day since the turn of the year was fueled by pure speculative momentum. As Heisenberg noted this AM, the S&P... [Read More]

There are a lot of numbers you have to keep in mind when you're raising a kid: Their height and weight. How many ounces of milk they're drinking, at first, and then how many fruits and veggies they're eating, how much outdoor play they're getting, and of course, how many minutes a day they spend glued to a device. In 2016 the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement on screen time, recommending that parents of kids aged 2 to 5 limit screen time to an hour a day of "high quality" shows like Sesame Street, and that...

Let's Party!," families can sing along, dance without judgment and enjoy the nostalgia trip. Oscar,... [Read More]
