Celebrate You with…
LOVE YOUR FRECKLES DAY wants you to celebrate you. Share those freckles with the rest of us and add a big ol’ smile to go along with them.
GO FOR A RIDE DAY hears the call of the open road. You can only look at your screen or be cooped up in the house for so long before you realize a little road therapy may do you some good. Get out and go somewhere you haven’t been or haven’t been to in a while. Maybe see some friends or just go wherever the road takes you.
On Today’s Menu…
CRANBERRY RELISH DAY celebrates the tart side dish that adds a little color to the table. Whether you like the gelatinous, can-shaped sauce or the kind with whole cranberries, you cannot forget this garnish on Thanksgiving.

On this day…
1718 – Edward Teach, or Blackbeard the Pirate, is killed off the North Carolina Coast during battle with the British navy
1954 – The Humane Society of the United States is established
1963 – At 12:30 pm, shots rang out during a presidential parade in Dallas leaving President John F. Kennedy mortally wounded. 30 minutes later, he was pronounced dead. If you were alive during this awful event, you probably remember where you were and what you were doing.
1980 – JR Ewing was not a nice person and there weren’t too many tears shed when he had been shot. The network left it as a cliffhanger until the next season and a writer’s strike delayed the unmasking of the shooter even more. It would be 8 months before we would find out that ##### shot JR – wait a minute – I feel another writer’s strike coming on – you may have to wait until tomorrow to find out who shot JR – if you have gone this long wondering, surely you can wait another day without looking it up.
1986 – At 20-years-old, Mike Tyson knocks out Trevor Berbick 5 minutes into the fight to become the youngest heavyweight champion titleholder
1990 – Margaret Thatcher – the Iron Lady – resigns her office as Prime Minister of Britain after a split in her Conservative Party failed to give her a majority vote as it’s leader
1995 – Buzz and Woody burst onto the screen when Toy Story is released. This would be the first full-length animated movie that was generated entirely by computers.
2005 – Angela Merkel becomes the first female chancellor of Germany
Happy Birthday to…
Enjoy the day and make it your own
Most Awesome God, thank you for such a lovely world, for these wonderful people and for life itself. Amen.
