9 was even money
1 was even money
1 was 2-1.

It was the 2nd most likely start to the day at Belmont...

NYC still uses police horses quite a bit, don't they? I've never heard if any died directly, although they may have had their lifespans shortened running around in the debris.

Maybe he filed his return early, and received it March 15th...... But probably he meant 4/15.

As though I don't feel old enough as it is being in Culinary Arts at Mesa State will a bunch of kids. In 1955 they changed the file date fron March 15 to April 15. No more beware the Ides of March.

The Ides of March (Latin: Idus Martiae) is the name of the 15th of March in the Roman calendar, probably referring to the day of the full moon. The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C. Julius Caesar was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate by a group of conspirators led by Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus

Render under Caesar what is his .

I was 15 in 1955.

The shame of youth is that it is wasted on the young LOL
