"Beware the Ides of March." —Julius Caesar

Happy March one and all.

Well, it’s March—finally. Some light at the end of the horrible long tunnel that was the winter of 09-10. We will not soon forget this season I’m sure.

Did you know that March is:

Irish-American Month [Faith and Begorrah, me ancestors would be pleased.]

Music in Our Schools Month [what would a football game be without the marching band? Seriously—and what would they do at Christmas…]

National Craft Month [get out those popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners and go to it]

National Frozen Food Month [shouldn’t it also then be National Microwave Month?]

National Peanut Month [find Jimmy Carter and give him a hug. Or a jar of Jiffy, whatever works for ya.]

National Women’s History Month [what, we only get 1 month?! Puh-leaze]

Poetry Month [roses are red, violets are blue; I’m having fun with this post—how about you?]

Red Cross Month [they deserve waaayyy more than a month]


  1. I think it's hilarious they made March Irish-American month since it contains one of the few days everyone feels like they can go out and get belligerently drunk thanks to the Irish.

  2. I'm second generation Irish-American-- and I DON'T drink. will they disown me????

  3. Ellen they would totally disown you for sure!!
    I mean don't you have to love Guiness?? LOL!!
    And I agree...we need more than one month!

  4. Sue Ann--LOL.

    when we visited Ireland in 1988, it seemed like every other business was a pub. One was a combination candy store in the front and pub in the back. Get 'em when they're young and keep 'em.
