National Ghostwriters Week

Mar 1–7. This week honors those people who do the work but don’t get the credit. One way to celebrate is to do something nice for someone and don’t let them know you did it.

Universal Human Beings Week

 Held in 1st week of March
 
Universal Human Beings Week is observed annually from March 1st to 7th in various countries. It is
observed to celebrate Humanity and to give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the
material values of life. Though as Human we all are far much intelligent than animals but we still
suffer from greed, jealousy, anger, hatred, lust etc. We are at war with each other be it regarding
borders of our countries or acquiring more wealth. There is a need for us to be at peace with each
other at all levels. To focus on the path that we are Human Beings and that we should act as such, is
the driving force behind this observance. 
 
History - The International Society of Friendship and Good Will, founded by Dr. Stanley Drake in
1978, is dedicated to the time-honoured principles embodied in its name. To encourage and foster the
advancement of international understanding, better human relations, friendship, good will, and peace
through a world fellowship of men and women of good will. The idea for an international organization
to foster international understanding, better human relations, peace, friendship, and good will came to
Dr. Stanley J. Drake on his 60th birthday, March 8, 1976, when he was contemplating retiring as
president of Fort Lauderdale University. Dr. Drake discussed the kind of organization he envisaged
with his internationally minded friends in the United States and corresponded with others in Europe,
and two years later, on March 8. 1978, the International Society of Friendship and Good Will (ISFGW)
came into existence. The Society sponsors and promotes 22 events and observances including the
Universal Human Beings Week.

Festival of Owls Week

A three-week old owlet fell out of her rickety nest high in a mature pine tree in the city of Antigo, Wisconsin one fine spring day in 1997, forever changing the way the world looks at owls. She was cared for at the Raptor Education Group, Inc. in Antigo, but the injury to her left elbow was too severe for her to ever fly and live in the wild. So she got a job as an education bird working at the Houston Nature Center through a string of serendipitous events.

As Alice's popularity grew, Karla thought it might be fun to throw a "hatch-day" party to celebrate the day she hatched in early March. With live owl programs given by Marge Gibson of the Raptor Education Group and a few kids activities, the International Festival of Owls had its humble beginnings.

Alice the Great Horned Owl is the only live animal at the small city-run Houston Nature Center in Houston, Minnesota (population 979). As the only live animal at a facility with a staff of one person, Alice lives at the rural home of her handler, Nature Center Director/Naturalist Karla (Kinstler) Bloem and commutes to work each day.

Alice has made her mark on the world in numerous ways. Besides touching the lives of tens of thousands of people in educational programs, Alice also provided the impetus for removing Great Horned Owls from Minnesota's "unprotected birds" list (Alice now holds Special Permit #1 to recognize her work on this issue). She also prompted Karla to begin a vocal study on Great Horned Owls, which had never been done before. And of course without Alice, there would be no International Festival of Owls and no World Owl Hall of Fame

I think cheerleading can be a great experience for little girls. I loved watching the cheerleaders at ds's basketball games.
