Colder temperatures on the way with the possibility of snow this weekend.

Attending concerts regularly might help you live longer (adding up to 9 years to your life?) and improving your over-all well-being.

Maybe you heard the Morning Show talking about this study this morning.

The study claims that attending a concert for just 20 minutes “increased participants feelings of wellbeing (by 21%)”.  Music fans who attend concerts once every two weeks or more “were the most likely to score their happiness, contentment, productivity and self-esteem at the highest level…”

NOTE: There are several Christian concerts coming to the Triad including Winter Jam (February 23) and Chris Tomlin (April 7). Don’t forget weekly church worship services!  https://www.newsweek.com/going-concerts-can-help-you-live-longer-according-new-study-863628

 

Day 18 of the (partial) government shutdown.

President Trump lays out his latest plan for border security and the money needed to pay for it during an Oval Office address to the nation (9pm tonight). That audience will likely include many of the federal employees across the country whose bills are stacking up as they wait for their next paycheck, thanks to the partial government shutdown.

 

UPDATE: Tax refunds will go out even if the government shutdown extends into filing season, the Internal Revenue Service said late Monday.  The IRS plans to recall a “significant portion” of workers who have been furloughed during the shutdown to process tax returns.  The IRS will start accepting tax returns on Monday, Jan. 28. The shutdown could complicate what already will be a unique filing year that incorporates for the first time major changes to the tax code.

Check out the News Blog for the filing changes, ways to get ready and key dates.

NOTE:  The tax deadline for filing will return to the traditional April 15.
