Welcome to March! It just seems this year is flying by so quickly. March is known for college basketball madness, St. Patrick’s Day, St. Joseph’s Day and more. Have you ever Googled a month to see what it’s known for? It’s worth the laugh. Who makes this stuff up? (more…)

Just 10 more days until Selection Sunday and then NCAA March Madness can begin. This is absolutely, positively my favorite time of year for sports.

I arranged to meet my son Greg at the baggage claim area when I landed in San Francisco. While intently searching the conveyer belt for my luggage, I had one eye out for Greg. I spotted my luggage, but was startled by the tall, handsome man who tapped me on the shoulder and said, “Mom!” With a shock of recognition, I threw my arms around Greg and started jumping up and down. (I tend to do that when I’m excited.)
Polar Plunge photos by Katharine Schroeder
With temperatures hovering around freezing and chunks of ice floating in the bay, over a dozen people plunged into the water at Founders Landing in Southold Saturday morning to raise money for Maureen’s Haven.
The annual event helps the Riverhead-based homeless outreach program, and is supported by businesses and individuals from across Long Island. Southold area first responders were stationed in the water to help out anyone in trouble, but none of the plungers suffered any ill effects from the icy waters.
