The Ides of March


"Beware," saith the soothsayer.


It is said that on the Ides of March
 the sea succumbs to chaos and the full moon brings high tides.
"Take care," saith the soothsayer.


In Canada, the Ides of March are commemorated with  Bloody Caesar cocktails.

You know what they say:"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"...Oh, by the way, I think Canadians will find any excuse to have a drink! Only kidding! I have a good Canadian friend that if she read this would know I was only thinking of her.

Ah, a cocktail named after Caesar's demise!

We don't seem to pay attention to soothsayers anymore; might it be because we are buried in inane information that robs us of our time but doesn't add much to our understanding?

I remember reading in High School ... Beware ... Then cheer leading try outs were on March 15th and I got all superstitious! Still made it... Guess someone had to!
