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


FASHION DAY started coming around in 2016 and encourages us to make a statement with our choice of apparel.  Whether you want to be a trendsetter, be yourself or just be kooky – go for it.  I am fine with my jeans, t-shirts and suspenders.


Next, we celebrate a brand-new event with NATIONAL DIMPLES DAY.  Brought to us by “Dimpuls”, this day is about that cute crevice that appears on smiling faces and lower backs.   This is the first year for Dimpuls National Dimples Day and encourages us to show them off.


Absolutely no fashion and being able to show off all of your dimples are on order for INTERNATIONAL SKINNY-DIPPING DAY.  Taboo or not, it is up to each person’s discretion to decide.  If you do choose to participate – do wear plenty of sunscreen.


Our dessert of the day is certainly sweet.  NATIONAL SUGAR COOKIE DAY takes a simple recipe and brings a tasty treat to life.  Sugar, butter, eggs, flour, vanilla and baking powder are all you need to whip up a batch and enjoy.

On this day…   

1872 – A patent is handed out for the first donut hole cutter

Happy Birthday to…

Elias Howe (1819-1867)

Brian Dennehy (1938-2020)

Powerful actor with a big screen presence

Richard Roundtree (1942- )

He will forever be known as “Shaft”

Dean Koontz (1945- )

He can write some scary stuff

O.J. Simpson (1947- )

From running back to running through airports to running from the cops – his career was on the same track as a roller coaster

Tom Hanks (1956- )

What can’t this man do?  I don’t think he has ever made a bad picture (Bosom Buddies doesn’t count – it was an 80’s sitcom)

Fred Savage (1976- )

He gave us his best “Wonder Years”

Enjoy the day and make it your own

 Dear LORD, what a beautiful day that we have you to thank for.  Guide those who are searching and heal those who are hurting.  May all feel your loving presence flood their souls.  In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
