March is the third month of the year, has 31 days, and is named after Mars, the Roman god of war.
It was originally the first month of the year in the Roman calendar and named Martius.

Beware the Ides of March?

I'm afraid our Senate is far to conservative for this sort of shenanigans...

On March 20th at 6:28AM Eastern Time the Vernal Equinox will occur.
Wiccans, Pagans, and other polytheists celebrate this day as Ostara, the midpoint of Spring, which began at Imbolc on February 2 and will end May 1st at Beltane.

But...for all intents and purposes Spring Is Here!

Spring is Here, Life Is Skittles and Life Is Beer!



Skittles you say? The preferred colorful candy treat of thugs everywhere?
No indeed. Back when mid century modern furniture was new and shiny there was a game popular on college campuses called Skittles.
It went something like this....


Odd what people had to do to entertain themselves before staring at video screens became the norm.



Madness indeed.

Trump and his CONservatives may shoot us with their words,
or cut us with their eyes
or may kills us with their hatefulness

Like air, we will raise.

I dont think the audience was not quite ready for that yet. It reminds me of a classic guitar performance in Back to the Future!

Im having lots of trouble inserting images and links, and is says html is disabled and using UBB. It there a way to toggle back to HTML, or is it determined by the thread or some setting on my puter?

Some of the UBB codes don't work here anymore either. You can no longer center an image or justify it to the right. But if you use the tool bar above the reply box you're more likely to get the desired results as far as images and videos go.

For youtube videos click the blue square(a video screen) and enter the URL of the video. The fourth from the left is for images and the second for links.

Thanks Greger,
I used to have no trouble with images, but most were jpg files. There seem to be many non-jpg images that appear on google image search, that are not acceptable to this software.

Thanx Greger,

I will have to learn fast, as I am impaired without the ability to express myself
with "appropriate"rolleyes images.

Today Sessions opened his press conference with: "It's good to be with you (curiously smiling)..." ROTFMOL I laffed out loud! I thought Sessions reminded me of some character, but couldn't quite place him!
