"Believe in yourself and your abilities. You Got This!"

In honor of Women's History Month

"We should start referring to 'age' as 'levels', so when you're lvl 80 it sounds more badass than just being an old person."

Two prostitutes were riding around town with a sign on top of their car which said: “Two Prostitutes — $50.00.”
A policeman seeing the sign stopped them and told them they’d either have to remove the sign Or go to jail.
Just at that time, another car passed with a sign saying: “JESUS SAVES.”
One of the girls asked the officer, “How come you don’t stop them?!”
“Well, that’s a little different; the officer smiled “Their sign pertains to religion.”
So the two ladies of the night frowned as they took their sign down and drove off.
The following day found the same police officer in the area when he noticed the two ladies driving around with a large sign on their car again.
Figuring he had an easy bust, he began to catch up with them when he noticed the new sign which now read:
“Two Fallen Angels Seeking Peter — $50.00.”

--National Peanut Butter Lover's Day: if you love peanut butter, this is your day; from checkiday: Peanut butter was developed in 1890 by a St. Louis physician, as a protein substitute for those with poor teeth. George A. Bayle Jr. mechanized the creation and began selling it. In 1903, a patent was given to Ambrose W. Straub for a peanut butter machine. At the 1904 St. Louis World Fair, also known as the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, peanut butter was promoted as a health food. In 1922, L. Rosefield of Rosefield Packing Co. in Alameda, California, found a way to prevent the separation and spoilage of peanut butter. He began marketing his creation as Skippy in 1932. Sliced bread was invented in 1928. It was around the early 1930s when peanut butter became a favorite sandwich spread, especially with children, and began being paired with grape jelly to make peanut butter and jelly—or PB&J—sandwiches."; it takes about 850 peanuts for an 18 ounce jar.

--Whuppity Scoorie Day: straight from cute-calendar: "Whuppity Scoorie is a traditional festival dating from the early 19th century observed by people in Lanark, Scotland to celebrate the approach of spring. Local children gather around the local St. Nicholas kirk where at 6 pm the wee bell is rung. This is the starting sign for the children to run around the church in an anticlockwise direction, making noise and swinging paper balls on strings above their heads as they run. It is no longer a race for safety reasons and to increase fairness for the younger participants. After three laps, they scramble for coins thrown by members of the Community Council who host the event. The Community Council also hosts a "Whuppity Scoorie Storytelling Festival" and art workshops after the event until March 7."; have any of our Scottish Sparkers participated in this ritual?
