APRIL 1, 2001
The first of April,
some do say
In English speaking countries,
men, women, and children play harmless jokes on April
first. The victim is called an April Fool. The observance
originated in France after the adoption of a reformed
calendar by Charles IX in 1564. France was the first
nation to adopt this new calendar. Before then, the New
Year celebration began March 21 and ended April 1.
Are you ready for April? It is the month where the outside world changes the most. You may still shovel snow and also plow your garden. Green tints appear along with birds and animals that have been absent since fall. Easter is usually in April.
Is the FBI Watching You?
A friend of mine sent the following. I hope you will find it useful.
As someone who was in Law
Enforcement for the better part of four decades, I had
many suspicions about the extent to which the FBI keeps
tabs on people. Recently, I've discovered a web site that
reveals if you have ever been investigated by the FBI or,
if they have opened a file on you. The site is a result
of the Federal Freedom of Information Law. I would
suggest that you do not use your SSN when doing a search.
It is really not needed for a successful search.
Hope You had a Good April Fool's Day!!!
