March Madness - and Other Things

Who doesn't love March?  Not me! March is the end of winter and the beginning of spring - my favorite time of the year.  Flowers bloom, baby animals take their first peek at this strange new world, and my sphere is renewed.


March is the month of - amazingly enough - March Madness, the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.  And who can forget St. Patrick's Day - the wearing of the green.  Or the Ides of March, the day Gauis Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate House. (44 BC)

Other interesting bits of March history:

Yellowstone becomes the first national park (1872)
Boston Massacre occurs (1770)
Monopoly invented (1933)
Bell places first call to his assistant in next room (1876)
Coca Cola invented (1886)
Congress approves daylight savings time.
