The Ides of March

Today is the Ides of March. Should you be wary? Not unless you have a fear of the number 15...or some soothsayers warned you in particular. Nope the "ides of March" was just another way of saying March 15. According to the Roman calendar the Ides is the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months.

Now if you want to be wary-be wary of  the Kaland of April. Indeed be wary of the Kalend of each month. The Kalend is the 1st of the month...when bills are due!
