March 15
The Buzzards Return to Hinckley

If you are a turkey vulture in the Ohio area, Today is the Day.

Every year on March 15, the turkey vultures return to Hinckley, Ohio, and every year the Township of Hinckley celebrates Buzzard Sunday on the Sunday following the 15th of March--this year, 2005, it will be on the 20th.

But it isn't just the feathered buzzards that return...the human Buzzard clan takes the opportunity to have an annual family reunion in Hinckley.

I scoff, but I have always wanted to go to this thing. Don't ask me to explain why.

Saints celebrating feast days today include Saint Longinus, Saint Matrona, Saint Zachary, Saint Leocritia or Lucretia, Saint Louise de Marillac, and Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer.

Happy Birthdays
Not Celebrating: Andrew Jackson (1767).

Still Celebrating: Fabio (Milan, 1961), Judd Hirsch (1935, NYC), Sly Stone (1944, Dallas), and Park Overall (1957, Nashville).

And, from IMDB...the complete list of celebrating stars.
