St David's Day, 3D Shapes and More

A Message from Lindsay...
Welcome to our new subscribers!
Every time I send out a newsletter I get one or two messages from subscribers asking me why I haven't included this or that in it. The answer is almost always because we already have it on the website!
Please do remember that this newsletter is only a taster of some of the newest additions to the website - and that there is so much more to explore if you click through! For example, in March alone you might want to check out Spring and St David's Day and Pancake Day and Mardi Gras and Dr Seuss's Birthday and World Book Day and Commonwealth Day and St Patrick's Day and Shakespeare Week and Holi and Spring Equinox and Nowruz and Mother's Day (UK) and Mothering Sunday... and that's just from the Seasons and Holidays sections! There is always a list of "upcoming" holidays and events at the bottom of the newsletter to refer to.

A Little Something ...
One kind word can warm three months of winter. 
Japanese proverb
"The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up."
Mark Twain
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
Aesop, The Lion & the Mouse
“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” 
Roald Dahl, The Twits
"Together we can change the world, just one random act of kindness at a time."
Ron Hall
