Welcome to Happy Hour and our 101st post. Something I’d never imagine happening based on how much I never wrote before starting this endeavor. Even piecing together a few words into a phrase was a long shot not too long ago. Anyways, here are some of the more interesting reads I came across this week.
If you happen to live near a Jack In The Box, here is a limited time only opportunity for you. The company has come up with a drink that only Homer Simpson would love, a bacon milkshake.

Our Congressmen and woman will have to find another way to profit on their ability to influence laws, government contracts, and more. While Martha Stewart had to sit in jail after avoiding a $45,000 stock loss, our elected officials have been able to profit from nonpublic government information for decades. This might be coming to an end, if these same elected officials actually approve a bill to end insider trading off of government information. Guess we’ll find out just how greedy they are?
