Several years ago, we were doing some remodeling in our home.  One of the carpenters was Japanese.  Every time he hit a nail & it bent, he'd throw it away & mumble something about "damn Japanese nails"!!

I don't remember if it was during the same remodeling or not, but a contractor came over to our house with his two little girls, aged about 4 & 5.  They were sitting on the couch while we talked to their father. They were playing some sort of a game where I guess you were supposed to answer quickly.  The younger one paused for a minute & her sister slapped her & said, "No fair thinking!!" which has become sort of a password here.

We don't have an aquarium, but I love them.  I watch the fish anywhere I can,  I do have a question, though.  Why do the fish always swim over to where I am & watch me?  Sometimes it can be sort of unnerving!!  Maybe they've never seen a fishducky before.

We all know about Lent & the Ides of March, but here are some March holidays that you may not be aware of.  If you click on any of these, holidayinsights.com will give you more information:

March 2 Old Stuff Day
March 4 Hug a GI Day
March 8 Be Nasty Day
March 9 Panic Day
March 14 National Pi Day because today is 3.14, the value of Pi.

Enjoy the March Hare:
