A page from history ............

I did not but did you know that apparently 1st April is called Fool's day marking the birth anniversary of Steve April who was born on 1st April 1579 in Christchurch.

Son of the owner of a textile company, Brian and Co Fabrics, he had a passion to try out of various innovative things. In his lifetime he indulged in a hundred and five business affairs, married an old woman at the age of twenty-two, and lost the property that his father had earned venturing and investing at weird ends. By 1629 he was bankrupt and had been black-listed by all financial companies of that time. He was an epitome of foolishness and was called the master of fools.  For more accounts of his foolish spreads follow the link here and have a good laugh !
