Happy Monday, everyone!

How was your weekend? Are you ready for a brand new week?

It looks like a yucky day outside our window. Expect some rain today in Boston (and outside the city), but the good news is the mild winter returns after some chilly temps this past weekend.

Have a great day, everyone, and remember to smile, laugh, and drink an extra cup of coffee today!


The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • The Boston Bruins saw their six-game winning streak snapped yesterday with a 3-1 setback to the Detroit Red Wings. Boston will return to the ice on Wednesday, February 12th when they host the Montreal Canadiens at 7:30 p.m.
  • The Boston Celtics edged the Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday by a score of 112-111. With the win, the Green and White have now won seven-straight contests – they will look to extend their winning streak on Tuesday against the Houston Rockets.

Happy Friday, everyone – we made it to the end of the work week!

Sure, it is cloudy outside our window, but luckily the snow (and slush) has disappeared. It’s going to be a rainy morning before it gets quite chilly this weekend, but next week should be a bit warmer – something to think about.

Anywho, have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and enjoy time with family and friends!

Greetings Thursday – how the heck are you?

From a quick glance outside our window, you look cold, rainy, and a bit snowy, too. But that’s OK because like they say in Disney’s Frozen, “the cold never bothered me anyway.”

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and remember to smile, laugh, and sing your favorite song (even in the office!).
