Purim – 15 March 2019

Jews around the world ceLooklebrate Purim, which begins this year on the evening of 15 March and ends the next night. The holiday commemorates an episode said to date to the 4th Century BC, recorded in the Book of Esther, in which a plot to kill all of the Persian empire’s Jews was foiled by the Jews’ leader Mordechai and by the king’s Jewish wife, Esther. The holiday is traditionally celebrated with gifts, recitations and a celebratory meal. Here, Haredi Jews read from the Book of Esther in a synagogue in Bnei Brak, Israel. But it is in Tel Aviv that the celebration is one of the liveliest, with a massive street party and live music.

Las Fallas – Valencia Spain 15 to 19 March

From 15 to 19 March, the Spanish city of Valencia explodes – sometimes literally – with the festival of Las Fallas. The city’s different quarters compete over who can have the most impressive volley of firecrackers, and on the final night, called the Night of Fire, enormous papier-mâché figures called ninots, often satirizing politicians or other well-known figures, are burned in a blaze of glory. For those who prefer flowers to fire, there is also the Ofrenda de Flores a la Virgen de los Desamparados (Floral Offering to Our Lady of the Forsaken) on 17 and 18 March, when people wear traditional regional dress, dance to folk music and offer bouquets to the Virgin Mary’s

Grey Whale Watching

Grey whale watching – all month

From January until the beginning of April, some 10,000 grey whales gather along Mexico’s Baja Peninsula to mate and give birth. These gentle giants of the sea world, at up to 16m long and 40 tonnes, are otherwise quite elusive, spending most of their time underwater. During whale-watching season, though, it is common for them to swim right up to tourists’ boats – sometimes even allowing themselves to be stroked. (Omar Torres/AFP/Getty)

Holi – 17 March 2014

According to Hindu tradition, the god Krishna, who had a dark complexion, worried the fair-skinned goddess Radha would never accept him. Krishna’s mother, frustrated, told him to colour Radha’s face however he wanted. Today, Hindus around the world celebrate Krishna’s playful application of colour to Radha’s face by doing the same, with people painting one another’s faces, frolicking in the streets and spraying coloured water and powders, as shown here in Vrindavan, India. This year, the holiday takes place on 17 March. Celebrations happen throughout India, but for one of the most boisterous, vivacious festivals, head to Delhi, which includes the traditional Street dancing & colour throwing. India Truly a Nation who celebrates LIFE!


Among Nostradamus’ more dire predictions about the future is the threat of international war destabilizing global security. Nostradamus’ followers point to a particular passage, Quatrain Century VIII, which mentions the East weakening the West. Century VIII 59-60 reads: “Twice put up and twice cast down, the East will also weaken the West. “It’s adversary after several battles chased by sea will fail at time of need. “First in Gaul first in Romania, over land and sea will be against the English and the Parisians. “Marvelous deeds by that great troop, violent, the wild beast will lose Lorraine. “Further passages in the same quatrain speak of the “holy temple” being plundered, France falling to ruin and a butcher “gaining an empire through force. AND WORLD WAR 3, shall be 27 years…  “CONFLICT IN THE 21ST CENTURY “

Going A little just Crazy


“Um-pah-pah, um-pah-pah
Um-pah! Um-pah! Um-pah-pah-pah! “
Oh, the Merry-Go-Round broke down um-pah-pah

I Love a Little Crazy 

Um-pah! Um-pah! Um-pah-pah-pah! ‘
Oh, the Merry-Go-Round broke down
And it made the darndest sound,
The lights went low, we both said “Oh!”
And the Merry-Go-Round went


Um-pah-pah, um-pah-pah
Um-pah! Um-pah! Um-pah-pah-pah! ‘
Oh what fun – a wonderful time
Finding love for only a dime.
Oh, the Merry-Go-Round broke down
But you don’t see me frown
Things turned out fine and now she’s mine –
Cause the Merry-Go-Round went

Cliff Friend (1893–1974) Composer, songwriter pianist
