Beware the Ides of March. Remembering the date that Julius Caesar was assassinated about 60 BC after this infamous warning.

Luckily during my working career I always received equal pay, but not all are so lucky. Today is Equal Pay Day. A simple concept that people doing the same work should be paid the same regardless of sex, sexual orientation or race.

I’ve never tried Pears Helene, but today is National Pears Helene Day, so it looks like a good time to try them. 😉

Have nothing in your house
that you do not know to be useful,
or believe to be beautiful.

Wow, the time change is really setting me back. Sleeping in and no energy to get things done.

Spring cleaning is about to commence. The windows need to be done so I can see past all the dust and grime that accumulated over the winter.

Today is the day to remember as the International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims. A lot of words to say we need to right some major wrongs world wide.

In what we are hoping are the last days of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we need to pause and remember World Tuberculosis Day. So glad that a cure for Tuberculosis was found. Streptomycin is one of the antibiotics that helped rid the world of TB.

In a world full of inequities, it’s sad to think that many countries still don’t have Equal Pay For Equal Work laws. So today we remember All Women’s Equal Pay Day and National Pay Inequality Awareness Day or Equal Pay Day. To me it only makes sense that if 2 people are doing the same job they should receive the same pay.
