I REALLY Am the April Fool

Whoops!  All of the links on this post did not work until tonight (3-days after publishing it).  This was not an April-Fools Day joke on my part, but an extreme lack of proofreading in my anxiousness to get some sleep.

My deepest apologies, dear readers.

All links are fixed now. Thank you for your patience 🙂

March Madness?

February is over.

Sooo…  I have put together the official March observances to keep us (myself and you, dear readers), in-the-know. March is another observance-full month – even with the religious holidays omitted. It’s not that I’m being politically correct here. I figure the religious among us already know when they are, and the non-religious don’t want to be reminded they may be going to Hell.
