March 9th


What a way to start the day. Waking up to beautiful sunshine. It’s a little brisk but that’s okay.

Couldn’t believe it the mailman delivered a royalty check today. Yippee!!!! The Lord does provide.

Can’t ask for anything more than a beautiful day, money, food, and a home to live in and things are going okay. Now all that is needed is a job for my son.

He fixed the oven last night when the part came in and yes now I can bake again.

Hurray for that.

Sunday’s roast is on the menu.


With St. Patrick’s Day on its way I had to copy this from a friend of mine from my home town. She posted it on Facebook and I found it to be interesting.

I just wanted to share it with everyone as I hadn’t heard this version before.

The reason the Irish celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is because this is when St. Patrick drove the Norwegians out of Ireland.

It seems that some centuries ago, many Norwegians came to Ireland to escape the bitterness of the Norwegian winter. Ireland was having a famine at the time, and food was scarce. The Norwegians were eating almost all the fish caught in the area, leaving the Irish with nothing to eat but potatoes. St. Patrick, taking matters into his own hands, as most Irishmen do, decided the Norwegians had to go.

Secretly, he organized the Irish IRATRION (Irish Republican Army To Rid Ireland Of Norwegians). Irish members of IRATRION passed a law in Ireland that prohibited merchants from selling ice boxes or ice to the Norwegians, in hopes that their fish would spoil. This would force the Norwegians to flee to a colder climate where their fish would keep.

Well, the fish spoiled, all right, but the Norwegians, as everyone knows today, thrive on spoiled fish. So, faced with failure, the desperate Irishmen snuck into the Norwegian fish storage caves in the dead of night and sprinkled the rotten fish with lye, hoping to poison the Norwegian invaders.

But, as everyone knows, the Norwegians thought this only added to the flavor of the fish, and they liked it so much they decided to call it “lutefisk”, which is Norwegian for “luscious fish”.

Matters became even worse for the Irishmen when the Norwegians started taking over the Irish potato crop and making something called “lefse”.
Poor St. Patrick was at his wit’s end, and finally on March 17th, he blew his top and told all the Norwegians to “GO TO HELL”.

So they all got in their boats and emigrated to Minnesota, Wisconsin, or the Dakotas — the only other paradise on earth where smelly fish, old potatoes and plenty of cold weather can be found in abundance.

I will be posting my chapter on St. Patrick’s Day next week so watch for it.


National Panic Day

March 9th marks the holiday National Panic Day!
Panic Day is the day when you’re encouraged to run around and tell everybody you can’t take it anymore. We love this holiday, because it gives us permission to freak out and express the panic that lurks under the facade of calm self-control that we present to the world.” So if you have been feeling stressed out today is the one day that you can act nuts, yell, scream, run around and act out of the ordinary to release all that built up stress.

I use to use scream therapy and my kids thought I was nuts, but it did a world of good.

Find what works for you keep it within safety means and let all that built up stress, anxiety, panic, hostility, whatever it maybe out, but do it safely and legally.

You will feel better afterwards. Go hit some golf balls, go bowling, shoot pool, whatever works for you.

Try exercise, singing, and dancing sometimes is a great release and todays the day to act crazy.

Then tomorrow go back to your normal self.

So good luck today.


National Crabmeat Day. Crabs are crustaceans, which means their skeletons are on the outside of their bodies. They use feelers for touching, feeling and smelling. Crabs walk sideways. Can you walk like a crab? Gather some friends and have race walking like crabs or if you’d rather have a clam bake there are wonderful recipes online for every type of clam dish possible including clam dip.

Sea lovers delight today. Now matter who you like your clam today is a great day to celebrate it.

There is also a cute song brought to mind and you can find the lyrics on Utube.

A crab and a lobster never can mate for a crag walks sideways and a lobster walks straight.

So enjoy today whatever your interest is.

If you like Barbie you can also celebrate her birthday.

So until next time 🙂
