Flower Power

As soon as you start to see daffodils and crocuses pushing up through the ground, it’s a sure sign that spring is on the way (even if there’s still frost on the ground). Those are just the flowers leading the pack, there are also tulips, daisies and cherry blossoms if you live in a city with cherry trees.

Time and Temperature

The Spring Equinox (usually marked on calendars) is a pretty easy way to figure out when it’s spring. Remember the old memory trick for time change “Spring Forward, Fall Back”? Well the clocks go forward one hour as we go into spring, adding an extra hour of daylight to this beautiful season, and naturally the temperature goes up as well!

Animal Alert!

Flowers aren’t the only ones that come out of hiding during spring, after the cold of winter you’ll notice more animals out enjoying the warmer weather and greener environment, everything from birds and butterflies to deer and insects start making their appearance.

Rain and Shine

After the long dark winter, the first thing you notice about spring is the sunshine, although it’s the rain that truly brings out the beauty in this season, nourishing the grass and flowers. And of course, wherever there’s sunshine you’re bound to see more smiles!

We women are strong but we are not interested in showing it. Instead, we waste our time on outfits and makeup. We shouldn't do this because the world is a dangerous place and we may make the wrong people look at us. We will be happy at first, but soon we will realize our mistake and grow more unfriendly. We should fight, fight till the end. There are a few things that we need to change and I think we should totally change them. We should show how brave we are. We should prove to the world that we can handle everything. We can fight. And if you don't want to, forget it because you're just a coward. Leav it to the people who want to make things better for you. I will  fight. I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WILL DO WHATEVER I CAN. I may not be good at everything, but that doesn't mean that I can't fight.

Duh. Nine year olds can be on this site, but Dear Dish It has frequently covered stories on some very graphic content. This site has always tried to service different age groups, but it's just impossible to do so.  What they really need to do is have a regular site for people who have aged out. Maybe a "Kidzworld Alumni" section.
