March 1

Can you believe it? It's March. Spring is less than 3 weeks away, and Easter not far behind. Hopefully, by the end of the month,  the wave of snowstorms that have rocked the Midwest will be over, flowers will be blooming and the sun will be shining overhead.
But today it's March 1. Here's a few things that make it special:
March 1, 1781, the Articles of Confederation were instituted.
March 1, 1790, the first census was authorized in the United States
March 1 is Justin Beiber's birthday.
March 1 is Ron Howard's birthday.
March 1 is Robert Conrad's birthday
March 1, 2012, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was on the NPR best seller list.
March 1, 2012 Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was on the NPR best seller list.
March 1 (2013) is.......Friday, the beginning of the weekend. Enjoy.

  2. Oh Sandra, I'm so glad to see March. It is a hopeful month. Last year on the 2nd we had a dump of 10" of snow but by the 15th my snow drops were blooming. The 16th is my son's birthday, and on the 17th we'll be eating corned beef and cabbage.

  8. I can't believe it's March. Winter is still active by me, but at least it's getting closer to garden time.

    Woohoo :-)

    PS: Though I do enjoy a good snowstorm.
