On March 20th we had the vernal equinox. Latin words meaning "equal night".
The vernal or spring equinox is the point at which the Sun appears to cross
the celestial equator from south to north, signaling the beginning of
nature's renewal in the Northern Hemisphere. March 29th is the full worm
moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the
return of robins. This is also known as the sap moon, as it marks the time
when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

The ides of March were made famous by the great author William Shakespeare
in his play "Julius Cesar". Cesar's advisor told him to be aware of the
ides of March. He was killed 44 B.C. in the ides of March, however every
month has an ides, which is the half way point till the full moon.

Heather, Ben, Ruby, and Lea came to visit, and we went to give my
granddaughter Courtney a birthday present for her birthday, which is on the
23rd. We cooked, and had a good visit. Buddy Watkins always brings candy to
the girls. Ruby expects it, and always likes to see him come.
Flowers are growing, and it is always sunny in Calhoun! Happy Spring
