TulipsHere in Minnesota, we are hoping that there will be some “Spring ahead” for us and the sooner the better.  With eight-foot snow drifts and ice covered roads, there is not yet a visible sign in site.

Setting our clocks ahead early tomorrow morning will at least feel like the first step in looking forward to welcoming warmer weather and longer days.  After an unbelievable fifty days of subzero weather so far this year, Spring can not arrive fast enough.

It’s about time, literally and figuratively, to remember daylight saving (not savings) time officially begins tomorrow: Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 2 a.m. The concept of something much like DST was referenced by Benjamin Franklin in a satirical 1784 essay titled An Economical Project.

So let’s spring ahead.

Happy Birthday Dr. SeussYou’re never too old, too wacky, too wild to pick up a book and read with a child! – Dr. Seuss

Who hasn’t eaten some green eggs and ham? Have you ever put a cat on your hat or a hat on your cat?

Happy birthday Dr. Seuss!  He was born Theodor Seuss Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on this day way back in the year of 1904.

With 46 published picture books, Dr. Seuss is considered one of the greatest children’s book writers and illustrators of all time. How many of his books have you read over and over and over? I remember knowing my son at age 2 was a genius when he “read” his first Dr.Seuss book aloud, over and over and over.

These are some of our favorite Seuss-isms, what are yours?

1.  “You have brains in your head.  you have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.”

2.  “Today you are you, that is truer than true.  there is no one alive, who  is you-er than you.”

3.  “From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”

4.  “Don’t cry because it’s over.  Smile because it happened.”

5.  “Today is your day!  You’re mountain is waiting.  So…get on your way.”

6.  “If you never did, you should.  These things are fun,  and fun is good.”

7.  “I meant what I said, and said what I meant.  An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent.”

8.  “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs is making a chore for the reader who reads.”

9.  “And you will succeed?  Yes indeed, yes indeed!  Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.”

10.  “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

So…“Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky!”H
