The Vernal Equinox is today; we've all waited for Old Man Winter to retire, and today it happens! Regardless of the continuation of cold weather, at least we know things are on the right track. In addition, today is another anniversary, of sorts...it's my natal day! Too many years ago to count, but it's a thrill to be associated with the change of seasons. Long ago, I worked for a company that gave every employee a paid day off on their birthday, and I've continued that tradition for myself ever since.
