Taking another step into the calendar, we find ourselves in the month of amour and the quadrennial month that heralds 2020’s Leap Year …
We’re celebrating FEBRUARY 39ers and LOVE in all its fun and glory! Speaking of “39” … Americans were certainly suckers for romantic movies in the few years between The Great Depression and World War II. Take 1939 for instance—lovable Jimmy Stewart stammered his way through Made for Each Other, a quirky love comedy with Carole Lombard as his lovely love interest.
They fall in love and marry all in one day! Yep, long before we depended on the Internet to find our instant love matches. Enjoy this adorable film, without violence, profanity or nudity. Just pure nostalgia.
Ready to share your love this month? With a whole week dedicated to Random Acts of Kindness* (16th through 23rd) you can make a big difference with small “acts of love,” for your friends, family, and total strangers. Give it a whirl while we all celebrate 39ers’ UN-birthdays and other joyful days …
Along with Your UN-Birthday ~ Happy FEBRUARY Celebrations
February 13th: World Radio Day – There are no two ways about it … radio has played a huge part in fostering LOVE among its fans, for nearly a century. LOVE songs on the radio have bolstered many a boldly amorous move and when Rock Radio came along with LOVE dedications … well, let’s just say we owe Radio a lot*.
February 14th: Yes, we know it’s Valentines Day, but there are other reasons to celebrate this middle-child (middle of the month) day …
*International Book Giving Day –In the spirit of LOVE and this day, the first two eBooks in my Blast from Your Past book series, are available FREE on this date only (February 14th). Choose Book 1 – *Rock & Roll Radio DJs: The First Five Years (1954-1959) or Book 2 – *Rock & Roll Radio DJs: The Swinging Sixties … or both! Rock on back to the ‘50s and ‘60s with your honey and have fun! (And yes, I’m finally back working on Book 3 – The Psychedelic Seventies … look for it in the 4th quarter!)
February 17th: Random Acts of Kindness Day – and if you only want to be kind for just one day …
February 22nd: National Margarita Day – Oh, my goodness yes! This frosty frozen cocktail isn’t only for Cinco de Mayo, you know. Enjoy!
February 29th: Leap Year Day! Take the day off … enjoy a Margarita … because, well … it isn’t a “real” day, right?!
For 39ers who Follow the Stars …
Looking for someone to work with to change the world? Find a February Aquarian 39er (Jan 20-Feb 18)! They’re natural-born instigators who think above the fold when it comes to enlightened thinking and not one to run from a conflict. This is a month of change for Aquarians, both personally and professionally.
Our other February UN-birthday 39er is the gentle and dreamy Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20). Pisces identifies with the month of love for a reason. Their compassion and empathy make everyone around them feel loved. Their soul is a magnet for fantasy and feelings. Don’t worry if the sensitive Pisces exits reality the first half of the month. They’re simply regenerating for the magic to come in the second half!
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
Trusting our instincts comes easier as we age. We just need time to realize how naturally smart we are. ~ L. Rochelle
Don’t wait, start now! Cheers to your Happy UN-Birthday FEBRUARY 39ers
This one’s for you, kids – Sharon, Rochelle and David!
