Read, read, read…The first Thursday in March we celebrate World Book Day. Oh the places you’ll go, the things you’ll learn and the friends you’ll meet through the books that you read.

You may even learn about the wildlife around you as we celebrate World Wildlife Day. It’s the only way I’ve been able to learn about the different types of wildlife I’ve seen. If I’m lucky enough to get a picture I use iNaturalist to confirm my identification and read about the animals I’ve captured forever in my pictures.

It’s strange that the day after Ash Wednesday as Christians start on their path of Lent that it is Canadian Bacon Day. Just like the French don’t say French Fries, Canadians don’t call it Canadian Bacon. We call it Peameal Bacon. But what ever you call it, it is low fat, high protein and delicious. 😉

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

Porte Musings:

The day after Earth Day is World Book Day. So grab a book and celebrate.

You could read about Saint George slaying the dragon and celebrate Saint George’s Day at the same time. Often celebrated at a local pub with a good pint of ale we’ll just have to improvise during COVID-19 restrictions.

You could celebrate William’s birthday or Talk Like Shakespeare Day. Or you could just watch a good a Shakespearean Play.

Cease the day. Slay your dragons. And read a good book. ❤

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
~ William Shakespeare (English – DramatistApril 23, 1564 – April 23, 1616)


World Book Day

St. George’s Day


Since we’re still self isolating and social isolation continues we should all read a good book to celebrate World Book Day.

St. George slayed the dragon, saved the princess and permitted all the townsfolk to have access to water.  Sounds like a Mario game to me.  Celebrations will be much calmer in England and Ireland this year due to COVID-19, but I’m certain most people will be toasting St. George with more than a glass of water.
