I must turn off Trump!
“Creature From The Black Lagoon”
is not as scary!

Basketball season?
Stupid leader will kill us
Humans are doomed

Trump will kill us all.
Doesn’t have a f*ckin’ clue!
Are we winning yet?

Still “Safer-At-Home”
And one more Saturday night
Feelin’ so alone

Sunday Solitude
Do you talk to yourself much?
Jack is a dull boy

The outnumbered Mexican Army of Benito Juárez defeated the invading French forces of Napoleon III. France controlled Mexico until 1867, until Mexican troops overthrew the government.

March 20th is the First Day of Spring!

Sunday, March 20th, 2016 is the First Day of Spring! Celebrate!

539770_418412271518678_1624598194_n

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~ Charles Dickens

ROSES! Happy First Day of Spring 2016!

12799176_1341863499173546_1127085872481775255_n

 

Spring is one of the Four Seasons, following winter and preceding summer.

“A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King.”
~Emily Dickinson

In the Northern Hemisphere, the astronomical March Equinox (between March 19 and 21) marks the first day of Spring, and the Northern solstice (around June 21) is the first day of Summer.

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~Mark Twain

The United States’ Spring season begins on the day after Presidents’ Day (Tuesday after the 3rd Monday in February) and ends on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend (Friday before the last Monday in May)

“Der spring is sprung
Der grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies is?”
~Anonymous (from Brooklyn, New York)

When it’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.

“There is no season such delight can bring,
As summer, autumn, winter and the spring.”
~William Browne (b.1591)

Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.

“Spring is nature’s way of saying Let’s Party!” ~Robin Williams

“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love” 
― E.E. Cummings
