Jay to the World May 2022
Hello everyone and welcome to ‘No Mow May’!! Anybody?? Let me explain…apparently in
the state of Wisconsin they are encouraging people to not mow their lawns during the month of
May because it will allow all of the pollinators that are hibernating in holes or leaf piles to
thrive. Apparently, if we mow too early it destroys the dandelions and clovers that the bees and
butterflies love. And obviously we need the bees and butterflies, so…how many of you would
be willing to not mow your lawn for an entire month to help protect our delicate ecosystem??
Hmmm…tricky, isn’t it?? It really comes down to this question: Are we willing to have ugly
lawns for one month if we know that it might help save the planet for future generations?? If
my father were alive today, his answer to that question would be ‘sign me up please!’
Speaking of saving our planet, did you see that a major airline recently completed a flight where
the jet was fueled entirely of discarded cooking oil?? I’m pretty sure the flight started in
Wessonconsin and ended in San FranCrisco…
Hey, I had 4 hours of sleep last night…that’s as good as it’s going to get this month…
This week in Billionaires, Part 1: The annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting,
known as the ‘Woodstock for Capitalists’, was held this past weekend in Omaha and was
headlined by a Question-and-Answer session with 91-year-old Warren Buffett and 98-year-old

to give their thoughts on GDP and Munger replied “is that the show that’s on right after
This week in Billionaires, Part 2: As you all know by now, Tesla founder Elon Musk is
purchasing Twitter for $44 billion. To put that number into perspective…if you took the value
of Twitter and added the value of all the cryptocurrency on the planet, you’d have $44 billion.
JTTW Disclaimer: I don’t own cryptocurrency, I can’t explain cryptocurrency, and every time
one of my customers wants to discuss it, I politely decline because until someone can prove
otherwise, in my mind it’s nothing more than a glorified Ponzi scheme. Just my opinion…
According to Ancestry.com, only 47 percent of Americans can name their 4 grandparents. In a

A lady in Washington State had to be rescued recently after she fell head-first into a porta-potty while trying to retrieve her cell phone. While the ordeal had to be very embarrassing for the woman, there was an upside, as she has now been cast in the upcoming remake of ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ that will be called “Shawshank 2: Is the Sewer the Only Way Out of This Place??”.
This Month in Music Trivia (and only about 10 of you will care about this…and I know who you are) So here it goes…Does anyone know the name of the first Canadian band that MTV played on air back when it debuted in August, 1981?? I’ll give you a hint…it wasn’t Loverboy. I’ll give you a second hint…the name of this band’s follow-up song was called ‘Sign of the Gypsy Queen’. Give up?? The band was named April Wine and the song was ‘Just Between You and Me’. I saw April Wine warm up for Eddie Money back in 1981…and to quote one of Eddie Money’s most iconic songs…I wanna go back.
It's not often that you get a Guy Walks into a Bar Joke combined with a Dad Joke, but today is your lucky day: A guy walks into a bar and sees that there are dozens of cuts of meat hanging from the ceiling. Confused, he asks the bartender why and the bartender says that they are running a promotion and if the guy can jump up and grab a steak, it’s free. But if he misses, he has to buy steaks for everyone in the restaurant. So, the guy looks around, counts the number of customers, and turns to walk out the door. The bartender stops the man and asks why he’s leaving and guy replies “the steaks are too high”…
