Beware the Ides of March

The ides of March is a date made famous by a soothsayer's foreboding warning to Julius Caesar.  In fact, Caesar was killed that day, March 15, 44 B.C., which was immortalized in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.  (It's amazing that this is what stuck with me from high school English class...)
Morte de Césare (Death of Caesar) by Vincenzo Camuccini.

Wish someone had foretold that illness would descend upon the CDJ household.  After a trip to the ER, many, many calls to the pediatrician and other details I will spare you it is pretty clear that the kids have a bad case of the stomach flu.  Unfortunately,  I have some of the symptoms as well.  Therefore, I am calling in sick and hope to see you back here tomorrow.
