27 March 20

On this date in 1952, the cinema world was changed forever by the release of "Singin' in the Rain." Besides remembering Gene Kelly's wonderful rain dance, I hope you can enjoy watching Donald O'Connor trying to make you laugh.

26 March 20

Today I'm marking the birthday of Robert Frost (1874-1963). My birch trees tie is related to his wonderful poem Birches. Also, tomorrow is Birch Tree Day on the French Republican Calendar! You might also want to celebrate the birthdays of Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) and Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015).

23 March 20

Your math for today: 23 - 3 = 20. I'm working from home, like at least 60% of the country, during the Great Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020. But I'm still wearing ties, for my classes and faculty consultations! Today's choice is the tie from my collection that best represents my father's neckwear, for his daily work at Bethlehem Fabricators, Inc. Arthur Jeremiah Kleppinger died on this date in 2004.
