Well, certainly for NCAA Basketball.......but also a packed schedule for March in general! Blossoms, wildflowers popping up all over the place, the time change, Saint Patrick's Day, Spring Break, the first day of Spring March 21st, Palm Sunday/Easter Sunday, cycling events, motocycle runs, inline competitions, golf tournaments, Doctor's Day, Albert Einstein's Birthday and even Dr. Seuss's! And the list goes on.........


Whoa....I'm planning to go snow skiing at Sierra Summit the last weekend of March....what a crazy contrast!

On two memorable occasions when our children were young, my husband was offering his fatherly advice about "lives lessons" with the intent to keep our precious boys out of harms way. Our oldest son was traveling with my husband in his work truck and was satisfying his innocent childhood curiosities by asking a multitude of questions about the gadgetry on the vehicle's dashboard. One item that was particularly fascinating to our son was the cigarette lighter.

I recently attended the American College of Healthcare Executives Congress...one of the courses I attended was a sober reminder of the importance of standardization, following procedures and protocols, and scripting.


What was most interesting were the comments about the most mundane and routine procedures being the most vunerable because we're all possibly too comfortable and relaxed....we can do the procedure "in our sleep" so to speak.

My husband came home one day (a couple of years ago) after picking up a few items at a local home improvement warehouse store. He shared with me that he was roaming around the store looking for the things on his list and while he was loading some merchandise onto his cart, a man approached him and without even asking if my husband worked there, just began rattling off a list of questions like: "where would the needle-nosed pliers be", and such.

Well, traditional wisdom and logic would lead us to reason that daylight-saving time, which begins March 9th, does reduce energy consumption. But an exceptional situation in Indiana provides evidence challenging that view....."springing forward" may actually cause an increased use of energy!
