Easter Is Hopping Up On Us!

Do you have any big plans for Easter this year? Coloring eggs with the kiddos again? Are you doing something else worth taking a photo of this upcoming three day weekend? Then take a photo or two and show us what fun you had! We'd love to see them!

Last week the Austin team had a St. Patrick's Day "Everything Green" Party. EVERYTHING at the party was green. The snacks, the ice cream punch, the (shamrock) music, and even the accessories -- a leprechaun and a pot-o-gold wall to take selfies or group pictures. Everyone had a blarney of a time.

Since last Thursday, Elgin team members have been scanning the March Madness Challenge Pool to see if one their teams survived the first weekend of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament. By Sunday night 48 teams were eliminated from the tourney, which brings down the number of remaining teams to the sweet sixteen. Good luck to those who still have a team left in the contest!

Welcome to our new section "Ask An Expert." Every week we'll ask an expert something that may or may not be in their field. Let's kick things off with Austin's very own, Eric Weber.

So Eric, as the head of HCS Engineering, what do think Kanye West should do to get out of his financial bind?

It’s a little known fact that Kanye West is a cousin of Adam West, who played Batman in the ‘60s TV series. My first recommendation to Kanye would be to ask Cousin Bruce Wayne to take out a home equity loan on Stately Wayne Manor and pay off the $53 mil, which is kind of pocket change for superheroes anyway.

If that doesn’t work he could probably get some money from Taylor Swift since everyone knows he made that b%^&* famous. If for some reason that falls through, I feel like there is a huge untapped market for a rap song about Donald Trump. Maybe a remix of “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”.

Oh, sorry, got to go. It’s the Kim Kard on the line again. Kayne this, Kayne that. So much drama.

Great advice Eric! Thank you again being a good sport and our Expert this week.

If you have a question… ANY QUESTION… that you'd like to Ask An Expert please email us at as soon as you can. Next week we'll bring you another Expert. Be prepared though, the next Expert might be YOU!
