Hello and welcome to Important dates in March

Leave a comment

We start off on March 1st with AFWD 2019 aka Take your Action Figure to Work Day

Alex doesn’t want to be left out of the fun! 😉

We then segue into Mardi Gras on March 5 for those of us that like Fun! Beads optional! 🙂 

What happens after Fat Tuesday? why Ash Wednesday of Course! March 6th
For those that are about to start Lent, we feel for you! NO Meat Fridays, giving up something you really like for forty days! yes, I remember being forced to do that nonsense too! But it’s what you do for your faith! Remember!! Be nice to people!

And then it’s Mercury Retrograde 1st cycle of the year
Now depending on who you believe it starts on the fifth or the sixth! I’m going to go with the earlier date, better safe than sorry! lol 🙂

Remember Mercury is the God of Communication and most importantly try not to take things personally. They don’t really mean it. Some people will say offensive things and they don’t mean to, it’s just that their thinking is muddied and their communication skills are sub par right now. This won’t be forever only until March 28! for this cycle. oops 😛
PS- I’m not yelling, I swear! It’s just this is really important and so I used Caps lock. okay, I’ll take JiJi whapping me in the head with his tail, owies!!

Now for the important stuff!

BACK UP YOUR DATA! 

DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING BIG, FOR EXAMPLE, CARS, COMPUTERS, PHONES AND IF YOU DO, BE SURE TO TRIPLE CHECK ALL THE PAPERWORK AND ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE A WARRANTY! 

THIS CAN BE A STRESSFUL TIME, BUT TRY TO BE PATIENT AND HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR. NO ONE LIKES HAVING THINGS GO HAYWIRE. SPEAKING OF, IF YOU HAVE A PENDING TRIP, PLEASE DOUBLE-CHECK ANY INFORMATION YOU WERE GIVEN AND ENSURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE, TICKETS, PASSPORT, MONEY, CLOTHES, TOLIETRY ITEMS. YES, I’M SERIOUS! YOU REALLY WANT TO BE CAUGHT HALF-WAY AROUND THE WORLD WITHOUT YOUR SPECIAL MEDICATIONS, OR SOMETHING THAT YOU REALLY, REALLY NEED AND THE HOTEL CAN’T ARRANGE FOR IT. YEP, MERCURY RETROGRADE.

NOW FOR THE POSITIVE SIDE OF MERCURY RETROGRADE, I KNOW, SO FAR IT’S ALL BEEN NUTS! BUT IF YOU NEED TO TIE UP LOOSE ENDS ON PROJECTS, WARDROBE REORGANIZATION, HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS, WELL NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME TO FINISH THOSE!

And then on March 8th, it’s International Women’s Day
Re-read the above if you will be taking a trip for this most opportune day and weekend!

Looking back to my college days, like ten years ago. LOL 😀 I was to come up with a collage of my influences and that is representative of Me.  My influences: Rosie the Riveter- pretty self-explanatory I think. Gloria Steinem- I was a child of the ’70s and she told me I could do whatever I wanted! So yeah, had to have her in there. The Statue- I was looking for one of Pallas Athena-but couldn’t find a good one…so I ran across this one and I liked it. Reminds me of a woman running with a torch- to light the way! The Dancing Silhouettes those are my friends celebrating life! This was drawn by Sean O’Donnell and colored by Moi aka GroovyGoddess 😉

so many people hate this day! I love ❤ it!! Spring Forward and we get more daylight now!!
March 10th at 3am.

OMG we then have PI DAY 3/14

And the next day is the 15th the Ides of March which I remember as Cesear being killed, stabbed at the Senate. And that’s it. Apparently, there is other stuff too. So here’s a wiki link

And then it’s time to celebrate and get my Irish on! Oh right, Alex is helping here too!
March 17th Saint Patrick’s Day

And then Blessed Ostara Everyone on March 20th aka the Vernal Equinox

a very pretty Ostara altar, not mine but in case you need an example of what you could do!
I do have that Gaia statue from Oberon Zell 

And from Alex, Blessed Ostara and Happy International Earth Day

And that’s it for March, lots of fun holidays and other stuff too! I’ll be posting some more Alex art and action shots from #AFWD2019 (duh) and other holiday stuff too! Have a beautiful week! Happy Monday!

Calendar day; March 14, 2015

Leave a comment

Saturday, the 14th of March, 2015 is the 73th day in 2015 and in the 11st calendar week.
General Events:
Pi Day 2015
March 14, 2015 in the World
Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day are two unofficial holidays held to celebrate the mathematical constant p (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, or in the month/day date format as 3/14; since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits of pi. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein so the two events are sometimes celebrated together. Pi Approximation Day is held on July 22, or in the more common day/month date format as 22/7, which is an approximate value of pi.
Pi Day is observed on March 14, because of the Ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes’ first rough approximation of pi as being 3.14. (A few years later, Archimedes was able to calculate a much better approximation of pi.) However, 22/7 is actually a closer approximation of pi than 3.14 is. Thus, a more “accurate” Pi Day could be found in the more common calendar, 22/7, or July 22.
Sometimes the so-called Pi Minute is also commemorated. This one occurs twice on March 14 at 1:59 a.m., and 1:59 p.m. If pi is truncated to seven decimal places, it becomes 3.1415926, making the Pi Second occur on March 14 at 1:59:26 a.m. (or 1:59:26 p.m.). If a 24-hour clock is used, the Pi Second occurs just once yearly, on March 14 (3/14) at 1:59:26 in the morning.
There is a large variety of ways of celebrating Pi Day and most of them include eating pie and discussing the relevance of pi. Pi Day is often celebrated with pies, given that pi and pie are homophones. The first Pi Day celebration was held at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988, with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies. The museum has since added pizza to its Pi Day menu. The founder of Pi Day was Larry Shaw, a now-retired physicist at the Exploratorium who still helps out with the celebrations.

International Day of Action for Rivers
March 14, 2015 in the World
Every year, thousands of people around the world lift their voices to celebrate the world’s rivers and those who struggle to protect them. The International Day of Action for Rivers is a day to celebrate victories such as dam removal and river restoration.
It is a global event to celebrate our freshwater ecosystems and campaign for their conservation. It is a day to educate one another about the threats facing our rivers, and learn about better water and energy solutions.
Born out of the first International Meeting of People Affected by Dams in Brazil in March 1997, and organised by the International Rivers NGO, the day has become global , with public events ranging from festivals, press conferences, kayaking events, river clean-ups, protests, religious gatherings and campaign launches.

White Day 2015
March 14, 2015 in the World
White Day 2015 is on March 14. The day is celebrated in Japan one month after Valentine’s Day. It is also observed in South Korea, Taiwan and China. In Japan, Valentine’s Day is observed by females who present chocolate gifts , usually to a male, as an expression of love, courtesy or social obligation.
A handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the receiver, because it is a sign that the receiving male is the girl’s “only one”. On White Day, the converse happens: males who received a honmei-choco (“chocolate of love”) or giri-choco (“courtesy chocolate”) on Valentine’s Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts, usually more expensive.
Traditionally, popular White Day gifts are cookies, jewelery, white chocolate, white lingerie and marshmallows. Sometimes the term sanbai gaeshi (“thrice the return”) is used to describe the generally recited rule that the return gift should be two to three times the cost of the Valentine’s gift.
White Day was first celebrated in 1978 in Japan. It was started by the National Confectionery Industry Association as an “answer day” to Valentine’s Day on the grounds that men should pay back the women who gave them chocolate and other gifts on Valentine’s Day.

Learn about Butterflies Day
March 14, 2015 in the World
Learn about Butterflies Day takes place on March 14, 2015. OK, let’s start and learn something about butterflies: A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect which includes the butterflies and moths. The butterfly’s life cycle consists of four parts: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.
Butterflies feed primarily on nectar from flowers. Some also derive nourishment from pollen, tree sap, rotting fruit, dung, decaying flesh, and dissolved minerals in wet sand or dirt. Butterflies are important as pollinators for some species of plants although in general they do not carry as much pollen load as bees.

National Save a Spider Day
March 14, 2015 in the USA
If you suffer from arachnophobia, you’re probably not likely to join in today’s celebration of “Save a Spider Day.” In fact, arachnophobia, or fear of spiders, is believed to be the most common phobia in the United States.
But like most phobias, the fear of spiders is generally frivolous, since in America, there are only two spiders that pose any risk to humans: the brown recluse and the black widow. In fact, an average of fewer than seven people each year die from spider bites in the U.S.
Spiders do much more good than harm, including eating crop-destroying and disease-carrying insects. Their venom has also been used to minimize the brain damage of stroke victims.
You can celebrate this special day by vowing to resist your temptation to squash these helpful little creatures, and instead, transport them to a safer place where they can continue to do their good work.
Think Before You Squish: Save a Spider!
