Tonight you might want to look at the moon after midnight as we will have a total lunar eclipse. For about three and a half hours early Tuesday morning (approximately 2:00 am till 5:30 am) the eclipse will be visible. The moon will turn orange/red color and is called a “blood moon”. It is the first of four “blood moons” we will see this year.

Congratulations to Bubba Wilson who won his second Master Golf Tournament in the past three years. Bubba (from Bagdad, Florida) played amazing golf and fought off 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and Sweden’s Jonas Blinxt to win by three shots. Wilson took home a record $1.62-million and the runner ups earned $972,000 each for their four days of work! The Masters (played in Augusta, Georgia) is the first “Major” tournament on this year’s PGA Tour.
Keeping in the sporting world, this was the last week of the regular season for both the National Hockey League and The National Basketball Association. The NHL Playoffs start this Wednesday and my favorite team (The Tampa Bay Lightning) play at home against the Montreal Canadiens. The NBA will conclude their regular season this week. In Boxing Manny Pacquiao retained his WBO Welterweight Title by beating Timothy Bradley and the weekend’s NASCAR Race was won by Kevin Harvick.
Last but not least …. Tomorrow is “Tax Day” so get your returns mailed. remember, it’s better to mail in your return even if you don’t have the money to pay your taxes. The IRS will work with you to pay taxes, but they expect to see your return on time …. If you live in Central Florida be on guard for bears. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission says that bears are leaving their winter dens and searching for food. A Lake Mary woman was attacked Saturday …. Tropical Storms will no longer have the names “Ingrid” or “Manuel” as the World Meteorological Organization retired them because of the death and destruction caused in Mexico last year by storms using those names …. Have a great week everybody!
