Here are some fun facts about Easter:
The name Easter comes from Eostre, an ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess, originally of the dawn. In pagan
times, an annual spring festival was held in her honor.
Tip of the month...
Prune spring-blooming shrubs, such as forsythia and spirea, after they have completed flowering.
Remove sticks, rocks and other debris from your lawn to prevent damaging your lawnmower or injuring yourself when mowing. Check your lawnmower and other lawncare equipment in preparation for the coming season.
Put a birdhouse in the garden to attract insect-eating friends. Watch for Hummingbirds, get their feeders ready.
Prepare your beds. Turn the soil, improve the soil, improve drainage. However small your soil-based project may be, now is the time to prepare it. Many plants and vegetables can be planted after the last frost.
Check your smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.
Here are some articles that might help with getting ready for spring.

But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you would have received $214.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink beer and recycle. It’s called the 401-Keg.
