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 the early spring flowers bloom,... spring is in the air (even if it is only a tease), and the temperature is getting into themid 60”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.
This year we start Daylight Savings on March 8th remember to 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.
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.
Some humor to start the month off right.
