OT--Marching Ahead, Feb 27th ed.

This year March brings us daylight savings, the Spring equinox, St Patrick's Day, Easter, International Women's Day & World Kidney Day-- which may be very important after St. Patrick's Day.


We are told the name of the month of March comes from ancient Rome; March was the first month of the year, and named for the God Mars.

Mars the God , of course, is also known as Ares. On Xena, Warrior Princess he was played by Kevin Smith. (This Kevin Smith, mind you, not this one)

The planet Mars is really cool looking and currently has a small vehicle traveling around it.

The Mars bar was not named for the planet, but was named for the company that created it, Mars Inc. and Mars Inc. was named for its founder, Frank C. Mars. It was originally created (by the Mars son) as an English version of the Milky Way, which was made by the original Mars Inc. in America. The history of the US vs UK versions of the Milky Way and Mars bars is incredibly complicated.

Topics? St Paddys, Xena and/or the oeuvre of American Kevin Smith, candy.
