  1. Thanks for all the work you put into all of this each Saturday John. I played most all suggested wagers (cut back a tad on a few of the added perceived “sins of omissions” when the tickets reached past my comfort zone. Overall I had an up and down day, wagered ~$80 and in the end profited ~$20. Works for me.

    Markets closed today – MLK Day – so I may take my extra $20 and visit the BIG A card with Don Phillips. The FRA as well.

  2. Have fun McD, and say a prayer for a great American and the country he tried to make more perfect today.

    With so much to be accomplished, we’ll never see that perfect day. Sadly, that may be the case for all those souls who follow us. Free will clearly is the sharpest double-edged sword ever created.
