Good Easter weekend.
This weekend is more than just Easter though. This Saturday marks National Titanic Remembrance Day, a day to remember the lives lost on "the unsinkable ship." If you don't feel up to reminiscing, although as a gentle reminder, Leonardo DiCaprio is in the film.... Easter Sunday also doubles as National Rubber Eraser Day, quite possibly the most useless national observance day we could possibly have (in my humble opinion), but to each her own. I hope this weekend finds you filled with Easter candy, rubber erasers or reruns of the Titanic, and if not, my heart will go on.
