Today is Saint Joseph’s Day, when we honour all the Fathers who raised children that they knew weren’t theirs and took care of the Mothers. Generous men who loved the children and ensured they were protected.

Yep, right in our own backyards, that’s where we need to celebrate National Backyard Day. For most of us it is our refuge from the world, our safe place. But as the Ukrainians continue to be bombed they aren’t safe anywhere. So enjoy your safe backyard and be thankful for the liberties you have.

The third Saturday in March is Maple Syrup Saturday. The sap is running and this year’s crop of Maple Syrup is ready to sample. May my Canadian friends have an excellent harvest this year and have some left over for me. 😉

Fast is fine,
but accuracy is everything.

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

Celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19th. Falling on a Friday this year it is a working man’s holiday so those of you who usually eat fish on Fridays, you can eat meat and celebrate with the working class. Make something to celebrate with the Carpenters of the world, the real men who care for women and children (even if you don’t know the father.)

A backyard BBQ would be an excellent way to celebrate both the Feast of St. Joseph and National Backyard Day. Just spending time with your family and enjoying your backyard.

If that isn’t enough, buy a chicken (or a rooster) for the backyard and celebrate National Poultry Day with the new trend of keeping backyard chickens. I always loved seeing the chickens in Dominican Republic as they worked tirelessly eating bugs and keeping the area pest free. They were so colourful and healthy, always ready for a quick dinner.

Keep in mind, as Wyatt Erp said: Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything. 😉
