A mish mash of things - hockey, spring and chips

SUNDAY, MARCH 23, 2014


Today's Writing Prompt: Welcome Spring

What does spring look like in your neighborhood? Is it spring where you live, still winter, or already into summer?

In our neighbourhood spring looks muddy and brown as the snow melts away followed my bits of green peaking through the mud. It seems like it only takes days for the grass to green. I know spring is supposed to be rainy but I think we get more rain in the fall.

National Chip and Dip Day

When : Always March 23rd


National Chip and Dip Day celebrates America's favorite snack duet. If you re holding a party, it is almost certain that chips and dips are on the snack list. The only possible exclusion would be for an Ice Cream party.
Important Note: National Potato Chip Day is on March 14th. For today's celebration, the "chip" is more generic. It could be corn chips, or tortilla chips. And, the dip is any kind that goes well with the chip of choice.
Today is best celebrated in the evening with a bag of chips and your favorite dip.
