What is your favorite quote? PLEASE leave a comment and join the fun!

Please enjoy my favorite Quote of the day that I found over at "A Five Minute Vacation":

"............I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten


This photo was taken at Chick and Ruth's Deli in Annapolis, MD.(And is posted on their website.)
For many years they have carried on a tradition ~ Every morning at 8:30am (9:30am on Sat and Sun) a voice comes over the speaker and EVERYONE there rises and recites the Pledge of Allegiance! It was an amazing thing to be a part of!
Kudos to "Chick and Ruth's" for STANDING for something. . .for making a difference and believing in traditions!!

March is Women's History Month!! Happy WW!



The Theme for 2011 is ~ "Our History is Our Strength" “Our shared history unites families, communities, and nations. Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors - social, religious, economic, and biological - have worked to create a unique sphere of women's history.”

Not a totally "Wordless" post, I know ~ but such an important event and some history you should all know ! Enjoy reading up and finding out about Nat'l Women's History month!
