Forever Blowing Bubbles

It’s been quiet on The Blue Ridge lately, which usually means we’re busy working on new ideas.  In this case, we’ve also been busy working on a number of organizational enhancements which I look forward to sharing in the near future.  But not before I take off for the holiday weekend and a much needed escape with my beautiful bride next week.  Looking forward to recharging the batteries and enjoying some beach reading – on deck next week is Battle Cry of Freedom, Economics in One Lesson, Flash Boys, and The Complete Sherlock Holmes.  Not necessarily in that order!

Until then, keep an eye out for our next report which should be published shortly.  Here’s a sneak peak at the intro, compliments of Dean Martin – click the image below for the classic soundtrack.

Dean Martin

I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky
Then like my dreams they fade and die

Fortune’s always hiding
I’ve looked everywhere
I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air

 
“I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” was a popular American song written by John Kellette which debuted in 1918. More than a half century later, in 1973, Dean Martin released Sittin’ on Top of the World featuring Dino’s own version of Forever Blowing Bubbles.  Our extensive research on the subject has yet to uncover the link between Dean Martin, The King of Cool, and Alan Greenspan, The Maestro, but the Rat Pack’s influence on the Federal Reserve is irrefutable. Ain’t that a kick in the head?
