April Showers or April Fool?

Well I finally returned to my blog.  Trying to be more creative and communicate with the outside world.

This month, April, started out with my mother's birthday, April 1, of course April Fools Day!

This month's Birthstone is the Diamond, a name derived from the Greek adamas implying extreme hardness.  It is the hardest natural material and the most efficient conductor of heat.  Color ranges from colorless to brown, gray, yellow, black and rarely blue, green, pink, red and purplish.

The ancients believed that the bearer of a sword with a diamond set in its handle was unconquerable.
