 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.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

NATIONAL SBDC DAY is all about small business.  All over the country Small Business Development Centers provide resources and aid to the start-ups and local businesses.  This day was created in 1976 to recognize the assistance given by these places and the impact they can have on communities.

Holiday Insights

To truly celebrate BUZZARDS DAY, we must journey to Ohio, where it all began.  Walter Nawalaniec, a patrolman for Cleveland Metroparks, informed the press he had observed that the buzzards returned from their migration on the same exact day every year.  Almost 9,000 people came out to birdwatch in 1957 and have been returning ever since.  The Chamber of Commerce decided that pancakes and sausage would be a good breakfast to eat while waiting for the birds and to this day, that is the official breakfast of Buzzards Day.

On Today’s Menu…

Just imagine a warm pear poached in syrup, topped with vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with chocolate sauce.  If that sounds good to you, go ahead, and celebrate NATIONAL PEARS HELENE DAY.  This dish was created by Chef Auguste Escoffier in 1864, who was inspired by the operetta, La belle Helene, and sounds intriguing enough to taste.

NATIONAL PEANUT LOVERS DAY celebrates the nut that is also a healthy snack.  You can eat them plain, roasted, honey-roasted, boiled, put inside of M&Ms, salted, lightly salted and many more ways.  Grab a handful and snack away.
