As if people needed an excuse to tip a few cold ones with some friends, Drink Beer Day is upon us.
Most folks won't have any trouble finding drinking companionship on this day. Just "grab some buds" then go out and celebrate this holiday. (After all I do live in St. Louis, home of Budweiser, King of Beers.)
If you still have a few carbs left to kill on this day, you can record the nutritional value of beer on your SparkPoints. Did you know that beer contains vitamin B6. It's true!

No matter what music era you recall, there is one song you almost always remember that can put a smile on your face the moment the melody starts playing in your head.
When I noticed today is National One Hit Wonder Day, I Googled my favorite era: 1980s. Check out this list I found www.onehitwondercentral.com/80s.cfm
There are three songs on this Top 10 List that I remember as being favorites during my dancing nights back in college. Until now I had no idea that the artists would sing no more. I've listed three of my favorite One Hit Wonders in order of my preference.
"Rappers Delight" by Sugar Hill Gang
"Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc.
"Turning Japanese" by The Vapors
OneHitWonders.com is a great resource if you want to reacquaint yourself with some of your favorite music. Every era is represented going back to the 1950s so there is likely to be something for everyone. Add one or two to your workout or walk mix.
Enjoy this short walk down memory lane. I sure did!

Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. This is not only an unusual holiday, it's recognized in other nations! Go figure!!
The way I see it, if you are over the age of 12, today is the ONLY day when this is acceptable behavior.
Warning: Keep your "arrrrrs" and "yo ho hos" under control, matey, or I'll have you walking the plank!!

Some days I only need to consult my unusual holiday calendar to plan my dinner meal. That is especially true today.
National Cheeseburger Day - Everything is better with cheese on it, right?
Rice Crispies Treat Day - rather Cocoa Crispies--our family favorite--in this instance
We have beef and turkey burgers thawing in the fridge and cheese at the ready. I'm preparing a double batch of Rice Crispies Treats not only for today, but for the fun-filled weekend ahead.
Of course, there will be at least two fruits/vegetables with this meal, too! And whole grain buns or go without, my preference.
It's a good thing that thanks to SparkPeople I'm living by my new credo "All thing in moderation!" Not that everyday is perfect. But I'm doing my best at a new healthy lifestyle.
