Welcome to today’s edition of the Morning After.
Today is the last day of February, and with the Ides of March about to begin just hours from now.
Today also serves as the end of Awards season. With the Academy Awards, we all now await the big releases that pepper the landscape like Thor, Captain America, etc… Oh, and Wrestlemania.
I wish I could share something about the Oscars, but I slept through it. I was awake watching TLC when they showed back to back of Bizarro Foods and No Reservations featuring the Motherland. Yes, I finally and luckily got to watch those two shows. It felt good when a great show features and highlights your own heritage.

And I say, adios! With a Smile.
