GOOD MORNING GUYS AND DOLLS,
Today is Saint Joseph's Day as celebrated in Western Christianity. Saint Joseph, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, his feast day has the rank of a solemnity in the Roman Catholic Church. It is a feast in the provinces of the Anglican Communion and a feast or festival in the Lutheran Church. Saint Joseph's Day is the Patronal Feast Day for Poland. It is also Father's Day in some Catholic countries, mainly Spain, Portugal and Italy. So I say to my son Joseph and all my Guys out there with the same name, "HAPPY SAINT JOSEPH' DAY". I want to say "Thank you Danuta", for always remembering my name day at work, she is such a sweet person. Us Polaks know our stuff.
This month we celebrate the First Day of Spring which usually falls between March 19 and March 24. This year it falls on March 20. Start getting those flowers ready to plant, which reminds me to do the same. It is one of the labors of my life, small but still enjoyed the most. We also honor "EARTH DAY" this month. For those who do not believe in saving our planet all I have to say is, "DON'T BE AN ASS." Global warming is effecting this Earth of ours and we should do as much as possible to prevent further pollution and destruction.
NATIONAL SPRING WEEK FEVER - Guys and Dolls gone wild will hit our beaches soon with most of the colleges celebrating Spring Break. All I have to say is stay safe, too many news stories last year of binge drinking, car accidents and students falling to their death over a hotel railings.
POULTRY DAY - That's right honor the chicken, turkey and ducks we all eat year around. Of the mentioned by favorite is the Turkey and usually I eat it just once a year on Thanksgiving or around that date. I love chicken soup but had enough chicken meals in my life. Forget duck, had it for dinner on a cruise, it was too greasy for me and sent it back. Now Peking Duck is a different story.
THE SWALLOWS RETURN TO SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO DAY - The American Cliff Swallow is a migratory bird that spends its winters in Goya, Argentina but makes the 6,000 mile trek north to the warmer climes of the American Southwest in the spring time. According to legend, the birds, who have visited the San Juan Capistrano area, the first took refuge at the Mission. The Mission's location is ideal for the swallows to nest with a constant supply of water and bugs. The young birds are well protected inside the ruins of the old stone church.
There Speakies a little history this day. I may turn over the writing tomorrow to the Zip, if he can come up with some of his quips. Have a wonderful day and great evening.
