Beautiful Young People are Acts of Nature,
But Beautiful Old People are Works of Art...
 

 

How to know your growing old:
The little old gray-haired lady you help across the street is your wife.
You sink your teeth into steak and they stay there.
You have too much room in the house and not enough room in the medicine cabinet.
You know all the answers, but nobody asks the questions.

 

Did You Know:

March 22nd, 1622: The first Indian massacre, led by Powhatan's brother, almost wiped out the settlements outside Jamestown, Va., which was itself heavily fortified.

March 29th, 1765: Patrick Henry atttacked the stamp act in the Virginia House of Burgesses, declaring that only colonial legislatures could impose taxes on their respective colonies. Shouts of "Treason!" interrupted Henry's speech, to which he replied: " If this is treason, make the most of it."

March 22nd, 1820: Stephen Decatur, hero of the Tripolitan war, was shot and killed in a duel with James Barron.

March 12th, 1903: A coal miners' strike, which idled 140,000 anthracite coal miners, began in Pennsylvania after United Mine Workers president John Mitchell's suggestion of arbitration had been refused by mine operators. The miners had asked for a 20% increase in wages and an eight-hour day.

 

 

March Quotations:

"With rushing winds and gloomy skies
The dark and stubborn Winter dies:
Far-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries,
Bidding her earliest child arise; March!"

-Bayard Taylor
