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
WORLD RANGER DAY gives a tip of our Smokey the Bear Hats to the folks who take care of our forests, parks and preserves. Their skill set ranges from mechanic, to vet, to firefighter, to policeman to public relations and on to teacher. It looks like fun, spending most of your time outdoors in beautiful settings, but it is a lot of work. Thank you for everything you do.
NATIONAL MUTT DAY wags its tail and gives a big ol’ WOOF! All dogs are worthy of love, but there is something about a mutt that just draws you in. Give yours a scratch and a treat.
NATIONAL AVOCADO DAY brings on the healthiness. They are tasty, full of heart healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, are good for your skin, target insulin resistance and Alzheimer’s and make one heck of a guacamole dip.
Our dessert of the day is perfect for summer. RASPBERRY CAKE DAY is delightful and tasty. No need to sweat in the kitchen over this one – it’s too hot outside – run down to your favorite bakery, pick one up and enjoy.
