What a spring we have had this year, dry and warm and in just about 1 1/2 months we have 2 new houses springing up! The first house started is already drywalled and completion is just a few weeks away, the second house is up and the roof is going on as I write this message. Pictured is the progress on our second home of this season at Slippery Elm Hollow.

It’s springtime in Augusta,  as I write you today, our generation is again excited and encouraged by 60 year old Tom Watson’s impressive 67 in the first round of the Masters.  Many of us that competed against Tom Watson in those college years back in the ‘70’s were broken hearted when he lost the British Open last summer at Turnberry.

Tune into AM1470 for a full Masters report, also during this program we will reconnect with our senior economic consultant from New Jersey and Fox News contributor, Patricia Powell, owner of Powell Investment Group not far from New York City.   Patricia will appear later on Saturday at about  4:30 pm. on Fox News Channel.

A Firm Foundation begins at 9:00 am. and a podcast can be heard after the show at:  Don’t miss this one!
