They say there’s a time and place for everything.

Mark Di Vincenzo is focused on the time — the best time — to fly, to see the Mona Lisa, to get a tattoo, to buy ketchup.

An awful lot of us just do everything on Saturday. Big mistake, he says. For buying, selling, traveling, working out, taking vitamins, making an offer on a house, seeing the dentist, getting married, filing for divorce — there’s a top time, he says, and he’s tracked it down.

This hour, On Point: "Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon." We’re talking about the time of our lives, with Mark Di Vincenzo.
