After a visit with fellow bloggers RV Sue and the Bayfield Bunch, and a stop at the Post Office Cafe for lunch, the Yarnell hill called me back home and I saw this on the way.

Celebrate International Women’s Day today. “In 1910 the second International Conference of Working Women was held in Copenhagen. A woman named Clara Zetkin a (Leader of the 'Women's Office' for the Social Democratic Party in Germany) tabled the idea of an International Women's Day. She proposed that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day - a Women's Day - to press for their demands. The conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, representing unions, socialist parties, working women's clubs, and including the first three women elected to the Finnish parliament, greeted Zetkin's suggestion with unanimous approval and thus International Women's Day was the result.”
Many women have influenced my life. My dear friend Berta being just one. Today she is having shoulder surgery so please keep her in your thoughts. Thanks.
