Spring Break

This is the start of Spring Break, the time when all the kids head to the beach or vacations, or simply stay at home enjoying a week off from school.  Spring break makes me think of the Elvis movie, Girl Happy.  Elvis is hired by a mobster to keep an eye on his daughter during spring break in Florida.  But, I love the Frankie and Annette Movies too like Beach Blanket Bingo and How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.

From the end of World War II until the 1980's Fort Lauderdale, Florida was the Spring Break location in the United States for College kids.  These days kids take more sophisticated trips to locations such as Cancun, Acapulco, and other Mexican beach destinations and to Jamaica, the Bahamas’, Cuba and other exotic locations.

I recently read an article about Mexico issuing warnings to Spring Break visitors to beware of the drug problems there.  Some colleges are opting to offer vacations closer to home and performing charitable acts such as home for humanity, working at school orphanages, or othr community service.

However you choose to spend your Spring Break, be sure to rest, relax and clear your mind so that you can be refreshed.
