Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining on an early spring day. I spent most of the week either sick in bed, sick on the couch, or sick in a recliner. I’m feeling better now and ready for a fun weekend ahead. 

Due to my health I didn’t write as many blog posts or make as many videos as I normally do during the week. I did, however, watch more episodes of Sports Center than I have since I was in college. I now have more factoids in my head about Tiger Woods, LeBron James, and the NCAA basketball tournament than any person needs. 

Despite my lack of new posts, people still visited Take a look at the list below to see what they read the most.
