Monday Musings - March 2, 2020

1. Welcome to March 2020. It happened over the weekend, March arrived. Next Sunday, Daylight Saving Time begins.

2. It was good to get home this morning and into bed about 1 AM, completing the baseball and golf trip to Florida.

3. Florida golf courses are full of different critters than courses in the North. For instance, this gator we happened upon sunning himself yesterday. 

4. I had the best flight home on Southwest Airlines that I can remember having in a long time. Well, actually, I don't remember it. I was asleep before the jet left the terminal and only woke up when the wheels hit the runway in Baltimore. 

5. I wonder what the month of March will hold for us.

6. The coronavirus, COVID-19 continues to be one of the top news items worldwide. The link at the virus name is a great site to get the worldwide numbers. 

7. International travel is going to be interesting for the next few months.

8. The Orioles went 4-0 while we were in Florida watching games. We saw three of the games and enjoyed seeing a winning team.

9. Today in History. Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss, the author and illustrator of such beloved children’s books as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham,” is born in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. Geisel, who used his middle name (which was also his mother’s maiden name) as his pen name, wrote 48 books–including some for adults–that have sold well over 200 million copies and been translated into multiple languages. Dr. Seuss books are known for their whimsical rhymes and quirky characters, which have names like the Lorax and the Sneetches and live in places like Whoville.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week

Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out.
