My youngest son insisted on getting a piano. He took lessons and enjoyed playing every day. Then he grew up and started to play golf. Today is Piano Day. Enjoy the sounds while you can.

In the 1970’s young men dodged the draft and came to Canada from the USA. We watched and had slogans of peace not war. The Vietnam war ended and the veterans came back in shame. I saved all the newspaper clippings for a History Project. It took a long time before they were called heroes. Young men that would never be the same. Disowned by their own country men. Many never returned. Those that did would never be the same. So honour the veterans on National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

On a lighter note today is also National Lemon Chiffon Cake. Enjoy some drizzled with a bit of icing. 😉

The last Monday of March, and this year it is Holy Monday. The Monday after Palm Sunday is known as Holy Monday in the Christian Calendar.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic small businesses have hurt the most. Shut downs have forced many of the small businesses to change their business model. Some have embraced technology and thrived, others haven’t been able to pay the rent or salaries so their doors have closed permanently. Here’s a quick toast on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, may the next year help you recover from 2020.

Today is also Smoke and Mirrors Day. A day devoted to magic and illusions. Magic always reminds me of Bullwinkle’s famous routine: Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat. And instead he pulls out a lion and then puts it back as he says: I guess I don’t know my own strength.
