It’s William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday! (Well, OK, no one knows the exact day he was born, but devotees have adopted April 23 as the day to celebrate, so we will too.)
To mark the occasion, here are three random things you may not have known about the Bard:
- What Do Jay Z And Shakespeare Have In Common? Swagger: As with so many other famous words and phrases, Shakespeare was the first to use “swagger.”
- Shakespeare Was A Tax Evader And Food Hoarder: Research suggests that he was prosecuted for evading taxes and for hoarding grain during a famine and then reselling it at inflated prices.
- Shakespeare’s Accent: How Did The Bard Really Sound?: A little more Edinburgh — and sometimes even more Appalachia — than you might expect.

We hope you’ll take a moment or two to do something kind today for our planet in honor of Earth Day.
Pick up some litter, volunteer a few hours at a local park or wildlife refuge, or plant a tree. It doesn’t matter how large or small, every act of kindness counts.
As Albert Einstein (a pretty smart fellow!) once said: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Understanding is the key to kindness.
So get out there and do some good and, while you’re at it, don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. You deserve a little kindness too.
You had one job, Dad
