Monday Memos

We return to the world of politics ... did we ever leave? ... focus on Indiana where Trump and Hillary will win tomorrow moving them closer to the finish line. I wish that meant the end of Cruz but he won't go away ... neither will Bernie ... both hopeful for a contested convention. Sorry, Bernie. History will remember you as a hero of the 2016 presidential election process. Do you think Trump has considered a running mate? Christie? I hope it's a new face with lots of political experience as Trump's first year in office will be an eye-opener ... talk about an awakening.

I have many Puerto Rican clients - legal and illegal. Current worries focus on Zika and the increasing economic crisis in their country. Puerto Rico's governor says the island won't pay most of $422 million in debt payments due by today.

Sunday, I read a client from Australia who is visiting New York City on business having to do with international banking and bitcoins. I found these references to Bitcoins an interesting synchronicity in Monday's news. What would international finance look like if we are here in five years? Is paper currency going the way of the dinosaur? How does gold fit in? Australian Entrepreneur Says He Created Bitcoin NY Times --- Video: Australian computer scientist claims he created Bitcoin   CNN - May 2, 2016

On the matter of TV ... May brings series and season finales. My focus last night was The Good Wife and Madame President - both with excellent performances and story lines. It all concludes next Sunday. Tuesday night, "Person of Interest" returns at last. I've been a fan of the show since the beginning and was really surprised when it was canceled by CBS. The concept of an A.I. taking over and running the world is no longer science fiction. On an expanded level of thinking the hologram we experience in - runs like an AI.

Over in Minnesota, a court will begin the process of unraveling Prince's estate. Last week, the ladies on The Talk mentioned a man who claims to be Prince's illegitimate son and if proven to be true could inherit everything. If you've ever been through the process of inheritance from a family member you know things take time in most cases.

West coast violence highlighted yesterday on May Day in Seattle. Violence connected to the presidential primaries will continue with paid - and non paid protesters. I am so glad NYC escaped serious protests last month during the New York primaries. Humans with issues like to protest and blow things up.

It's Teacher Appreciation Week. Aren't we all teachers / counselors after a fashion? I taught students from Kgt-12th grade, then workshops and classes with adults. Crystalinks is a work in progress and a teaching tool.

Emotions run high as we get close to Mother's Day. For some, it's a day of love and enjoyment while for others it's a day of dealing with unresolved issues. For those who have lost their mother, or mother figure this year, it will be a day to remember and embrace their emotions.

Happy first birthday to Princess Charlotte across the pond. You are adorable. Many little girls want to grow up and be a princess. You are the lucky one. Many spiritual women want to be priestesses ... whatever empowers you.

There were three award shows this weekend which featured many designers from the world of fashion. You'll see their designs in the news, on talk shows, and magazine shows today. The highlight of fashion takes us to ...

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City.
