March 28 is Weed Appreciation Day. Being a recent transplant to Colorado I had to check this one out, and I was relieved to learn that it’s a day in recognition of common weeds found in your lawn or garden. A weed is simply any plant that is not in a place where it should be. Medicinal, herbal, and edible plants, and even flowers are considered weeds if they grow where not wanted. Common weeds do provide some benefit including converting carbon dioxide to oxygen, providing food and shelter for birds and wildlife, some have medicinal value, and others may even make a fine salad or dandelion wine.

March 20 has several designations worth more than just a mention in my March 1 blog post. I think we owe it to the next generation to hand down a planet worth inhabiting, so take a moment on International Earth Day to consider what we can do to sustain a healthy planet that continues to support productive Agriculture (National Agriculture Day). Vital to plant growth is sunshine, and with the arrival of the Spring Equinox, we now have as much light as darkness and the days will only get longer from here. As for Plan B, I guess we can always hope for an Extraterrestrial Abduction or at least a Proposal from that special someone. Please share if you’ve received a proposal on March 20, or if you’ve been abducted by Extraterrestrials on this designated day (or any day).

After a brush with Juarez, Mexico police, a group of American volunteers join Canadian volunteers and their Mexican counterparts at the local’s favorite Chinese restaurant in Juarez to strategize how to complete the operation and meet objectives.
Confused? See the post on March 3, 2018.

I’ll leave the worshiping of tools up to your discretion during the March 11 Worshiping of Tools Day, but don’t gloss over Daylight Savings time. At 2:00 a.m. on March 11 be sure to set your clocks ahead an hour or just to be on the safe side, change the time before going to bed Saturday night.

I wanted to give a special shout out to March 3 and March 4. Here we have two days of upbeat designations and I truly want you to be happy. So give a caregiver and a GI a hug, ponder if pets had thumbs, imagine being surrounded by peach blossoms, and be thankful for your freedom while humming the words to the National Anthem.
