March 1st, 2014

As we start into March we know spring is just around the corner. Here in the Atlanta, Ga. area, (our corporate base) we are starting to see flowers bloom, spring is in the air (even if it is only a tease), and the temperature is getting into the low 70’s. If you're living in an area that is still cold, we invite you to come on down for a visit. Spring in this "our neck of the woods" is absolutely beautiful.

For the sports fans we have March Madness coming up and opening day of baseball is just a few short weeks away. For the people who like working in their gardens, it's time to prepare the ground, so roll up your sleeves and get to work. Last but not least, for those of you who are planning on going to the beach this summer, its time to start that diet you've put off since Christmas.

We want to give you an update on the new website that we have had a hand in creating Feb was the second month of being online and we have had more than 7,000 pages viewed from 27 countries.. If you have not had the opportunity to check it out please take a moment to do so. Look for the new feature article of the month Cinnamon and Honey Health Benefits: Who Knew?

This year we start Daylight Savings on March 9th set your clocks ahead

One of the first Party days after the Super Bowl is of course St Patrick’s Day

Here are some fun facts about St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s isn’t a big drinking holiday in Ireland. In fact, many of the local pubs are closed for the day.

St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD. It is also a worldwide celebration of Irish culture and history. St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland, and a provincial holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Corned beef is strictly an American invention, the Irish don't actually eat it to celebrate the day.

34 million Americans have Irish ancestry, according to the 2003 US Census. That’s almost nine times the population of Ireland, which has 4.1 million people

The city with the largest population of Americans of Irish descent is Boston (23%).

Bailey's Irish Cream, which was launched in Ireland in the early seventies, is now the most popular liqueur in the world.

Tip of the month...

When I was a wee lad spring always meant it was time to give the house a good spring cleaning--windows all got washed inside and out and all of the sheets, pillow cases, and comforters were washed and hung on the line to dry and freshen up in the sunshine.

Here are some tips of some things that we often forget: Replace your furnace filter. Clean the kitchen exhaust hood and air filter. Clean clothes dryer exhaust duct, damper, and space under the dryer. Now is the time to get your air conditioning unit checked out. Check for damage to your roof. With spring comes the time for storms. Practice a severe-weather drill with your family!

Here are some articles that might help with getting ready for spring.
