Building Blocks of History 1st March

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 1st March in years gone by.

Between 46 BC & 1582 AD today was the start of the first month of the year.

In 1784 the first cookery school was opened in Britain by E. Kidner.

In 1966 the space probe Venus III crash landed on Venus – the first craft to arrive on another planet.

In 2016 we met these beautiful horse when out walking.

First overtures of

Friendship extended to our

Galactic neighbour.

  1. Interesting haiku and story. I like the horse encounter best. In Australia we celebrate the 40 hour working week in March. First in the world to do so. Unfortunately global economies have all but destroyed working conditions here now.
