Last Day of March

According to the adage, it should go out like a lion since it came in like a lamb.
This is the time of the year when time seems to accelerate.  Maybe it has something to do with losing that hour last weekend.  The days are longer now, and next week will be Easter.  My garden is bursting forth, especially the weeds, and birds are clamouring for food like it's going out of style.

What else does March 31 commemorate? 

In 1889 the Eiffel Tower was officially opened.

In 1942 the Japanese invaded Christmas Island.

In 1966 the Soviets launch the probe Luna 10 to orbit the moon.

Birthday of French philosopher Rene Descartes (1596), German composer Johannes Sebastian Bach (1685)and American actor Christopher Walken (1943), amongst others.
