I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Events and Celebrations
Let’s roll out the day with COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY. Keeping these classic beauties restored and maintained keeps history and memories alive. We get a little thrill every time we see them cruising down the street or lined up at a car show. Thank you, car collectors, for your love of the hobby and keeping the oldies but goodies around.
MATH 2.0 DAY calculates the role mathematics plays in electronics and technology. Started by the Math Interest Group in 2009, this day is all about the numbers which make our tech world go ‘round.
‘Dermastart’ brings us NATIONAL LOVE YOUR SKIN DAY. Taking care of your biggest organ (your skin) is a big job, but it pays off. Being careful of what you expose it to and maintaining it with the proper products will keep your body happy.
Our health food of the day will not give you the blues. NATIONAL BLUEBERRY DAY brings us those sweet tidbits that are full of nutrients, fiber and anti-oxidants. Add ‘em to your cereal, salad, ice cream or just enjoy them by themselves.
That leads us to our dessert of the day, NATIONAL CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS DAY. This can actually be a little healthy, especially if the chocolate is dark. A rich chocolatey taste with a big nutty crunch makes every bite a sensation.
NATIONAL FREEZER POP DAY doesn’t discriminate on flavor or shape – as long as it’s frozen. Cool off with one of these fabulous frozen treats.

Most Awesome Father who is and who was and who is yet to come, I ask that you form a hedge of protection and love around these wonderful people and as we debate and disagree over issues, let us not be divided. I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.
