From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up April 22, 2014 :
- President Obama is scheduled to visit the community of Oso in Washington State where last month’s devastating mudslide occurred.
- The National Association of Realtors reports on sales of existing homes for March.
- It’s director John Waters‘ birthday. He’ll be 68.
- A toast to the planet we live on. Tomorrow is Earth Day.
- And speaking of toast, do you have a lot of eggs to eat? Maybe you dyed dozens of them for Easter. Then you may be among those observing Egg Salad Week.
