A Trip Down Memory Lane: A Burma-Shave Jingle

Well, maybe not down my memory lane since the Burma-Shave road signs were before my time but some of you might remember them.

Came across these jazzy jingles the other day while researching something else and lost myself on Google looking for more.  25 more words

TWO FOR THE ROAD/

DAY 1/282 MILES/454 KM  When I was a young child, road-trips with my parents always seemed to start on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Friday in Spring, Hurrah

Today is, Ta Da, the First Day of Spring, the vernal equinox. (Greetings to all my Druid friends.)

Not only is the day equal to the night (cue up the Doors), but there’s a solar eclipse scheduled which will be seen by a few hardy islanders in the extreme North, and since the Moon is at Perigee, a “Supermoon” (though you won’t be able so see it, dark of the Moon and all that.) 105 more words
