Given that it’s April 1st, and we all know what that means, I thought I would share this with you. Jean Wells Rogers, a long-time reader of the “Dear Abby” columns in the newspaper, wrote this wonderful poem for today. Fitting, don’t you think?


No one goes hungry
All people are fed
The oceans are clean
Lake Erie’s not dead.

The Irish aren’t fighting
The Arabs love Jews
The swords are now plowshares
Now ain’t that good news?

The water’s delicious
The air is so clear
On top of a mountain
You see to next year.

Couples stay married
Children are jewels
Sure got you going!

Folks should not forget that today we celebrate Earth Hour.

Tonight’s the night that we switch off the lights between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour is designed to raise awareness of climate change, and was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It is observed by at least 4,000 cities in 88 countries of the world (including the city of Ottawa).

So, remember, turn off the lights for an hour tonight and honour Earth Hour.

Good morning, everyone!

Today is the first day of Spring. Not sure what the weather is going to be like today (haven’t checked the forecast yet), but I’m hoping for a nice day. This is Ottawa, so one expects whatever weather one expects. 🙂

I just want to wish everyone a very good, very happy First Day of Spring!

Hope the weather wherever you are is balmy, the skies are clear, and that you get outside and spend the day in the fresh, Spring air!
