Hank's Thoughts
HJ Head Outdoors 

Well, Yes --
I know it's Daylight Saving Time now -- but I can't say I am 100% happy about it.

When the clock says 7 a.m. it's really only six, and I need another hour's sleep.

I suppose the extra hour of sunshine and daylight at the close of day makes up for the early morning irritation.

Another gripe -- when the clock says it's noon, my tummy isn't really ready to eat; it has gotten used to eating at noon on the old time.

We must live with it, along with dozens of zany laws imposed upon us by the government -- but we don't have to like it.

Call me a cranky dinosaur if you like, but I prefer going back to the old way of telling time.

See the Betcha' Didn't Know for an important comment on this.

It's The Ides of March !!

The Ides of March is the name given to March 15th by the ancient Romans on their calendars. In those days, the 15th day of each of the months of March, May, July, and October was known as the Ides.

The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars, and a military parade was usually held. The Senate in Rome held a special session on that day in 44 BC, wherein several of the Senators, disgruntled with Caesar, murdered him with many daggers.
In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the quotation in William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.  A soothsayer warned Caesar to Beware the Ides of March, but self-confident Caesar chose to ignore the warning.
Also ....... St. Patrick's Day Approaches

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, the Saint's religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon.

Lenten prohibitions against eating meat were waived, and people would dance, drink and feast -- on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.

We eat corned beef instead of the bacon these days, and the taverns and bars celebrate a very busy evening serving green beer!

Farmers are some of the biggest critics of Daylight Saving Time, claiming it disrupts cows' milking schedules.

A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
    "What's it about?" he asked.
    "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

John Lennon was once quoted as saying that life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.
"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." - Henry David Thoreau
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
