SPRING

                        GREEN SCENE

The color green belongs to spring, Which splashes it about. On nearly every growing thing, That pops a bud or sprout. Against the white of winter time, Spring’s green is fresh and new. With lettuce, Laurel leaf, and lime, And peas and honeydew. Appearing in new gowns of green, The reawakened trees. Are graceful as they bow and lean, A-dancing in spring’s breeze. Each season with it’s own bouquet brings color new and clean, But surely, spring, this lovely way, Has blessed the world with green.

INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY    MARCH 8.     

NATIONAL WOMAN’S HISTORY MONTH

For all of us fine ladies out there: I AM WOMAN

I am woman, hear me roar. In numbers too big to ignore. And I know too much to go back and pretend. ‘Cause I’ve heard it all before and I’ve been down there on the floor. No one’s ever gonna keep me down again!                                                                       (CHORUS): Oh yes I am wise. But it’s wisdom born of pain. Yes, I’ve paid the price. But look how much I’ve gained. If I have to, I can do anything! I AM STRONG! I AM INVINCIBLE! I AM WOMAN!                                                                                                 You can bend but never break me. ‘Cause it only serves to make me more determined to achieve my final goal. And I come back even stronger, Not a novice any longer. ‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul.                                                                       (CHORUS)                                                                                                                                 I am woman watch me grow. See me standing toe to toe. As I spread my loving arms across the land. But I’m still an embryo with a long long way to go. Until I make my brother understand.                                                                                                                          (CHORUS)                                                                                                                                If I have to I can face anything!                                                                                                 I AM STRONG!                                                                                                                               I AM INVINCIBLE!                                                                                                                     I AM WOMAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VALENTINE’S DAY TRADITIONS

In ancient times, the heart was considered to be the source of all emotions, and so became a valentine symbol.

Centuries ago, if a lady wanted a man’s attention, she would drop her lace handkerchief. Thus, lace became linked with romance.

Children of old England sang door-to-door on Valentine’s Day and received candy, cookies, and money in return.

People in the Middle Ages drew names to see who their valentines would be, then pinned the names on their shirts. This inspired the phrase “to wear your heart on your sleeve”.

The red rose was said to be a favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

The oldest known valentines were sent in 1415 by the Duke of Orleans to his French wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
