I love picking out pictures in the clouds! I did it with my sister when I was young and I still do it today with my kids. It's great fun!

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Always be yourself, because the people that matter, don't mind, and the one's that do mind don't matter.

Have a great day!

This week is cleaning for a reason week. So today let's declutter a drawer and/or cabinet. Clutter in our homes means a more likely chance of clutter in our bodies...and that is reason enough to get that clutter out

The challenge is to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because today is

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

It's National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Did you know that the average American consumes 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the age of 18? The combination of sweet jelly and salty peanut butter has been a staple in school lunchboxes for over fifty years.

According to one story, American soldiers invented the peanut butter and jelly sandwich during World War II. They decided to combine their bread, jelly, and peanut butter rations into a fabulous new treat. When the soldiers returned home after the war, peanut butter and jelly sales soared.

Today is Bunsen Burner Day and National Clams On The Half Shell Day

When : Always March 31st

Bunsen Burner Day celebrates the birthday of its creator. German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen was born on March 31, 1811. And, you guessed it, von Bunsen created the Bunsen Burner.

If you are a high school student, you know all about the bunsen burner. If you work in a chemistry laboratory, chances are you use the burner in your job. If its been a while since high school chemistry class, the memory of the bunsen burner may have faded somewhat.

In case you memory has faded, the Bunsen Burner is a long, hollow tube. Gas and air are combined to create a hot flame. The burner is used in a wide range of scientific and laboratory projects.

Spend a few minutes today to appreciate the value of this important scientific tool. We will let you determine how many minutes to spend in reflection

When : Always March 31st

Today is Clam on the Half Shell Day. Boy, the world really needs a day like today. You must be elated that someone was smart enough, and had the insight, to create this day for us to enjoy and savor.

We hope that you like clams. Because, the objective of the day is to enjoy clams on the half shell. If you don't like clams, don't be sad or disappointed. Today, is also Bunsen Burner Day. And, tomorrow is a brand new day!

Don't hide in your shell today. Don't clam up. Get out and celebrate this special day!

Today is 2 special days:

I Am In Control Day - March 30

When : Always March 30th
On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt. Lots of confusion prevailed. In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here". Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press foscused upon these few words. Political uproar eventually led to his resignation.

On that infamous day, I am in Control Day was born.

History sometimes fades with time. Alexander Haig's statement was all but forgotten. Meanwhile, this special day continued on, and evolved. People came to think about this day in a different context. They personalized it into a day to get their life in control. In that sense, today is definitely a call to action. "I am in Control Day" is your chance to get things in order and under control.

Most likely, the first step is to take a deep breath and relax. Now, assess the situation, and.......... get things under control. So grab yourself a personalized planner and maybe a promotional calendar to organize your life and take it under your control.Once you have accomplished this today, you can work on staying in control everyday.

AND PENCIL DAY

Pencil Day is a holiday in celebration of the first patent on the modern pencil. Hymen Lipman was issued a patent in 1858 for a pencil with an eraser. March 30, 2008, marks the 150th anniversary of the modern pencil, and many participating libraries and businesses distribute free pencils in honor of this significant achievement. The pencil is a writing implement that can be used to write and draw. Pencils are usually made of wood with a graphite or charcoal center, though modern inventions have also created plastic mechanical pencils that can be replenished and use almost indefinitely.

Fast Facts:

Date: March 30
Modern Pencil with eraser invented March 30, 1858
March 2008 celebrates 150 years of pencils
Modern Pencil invented by Hymen Lipman
Often called Free Pencil Day

A recipe, I made yesterday, got botched. I added 2 more ingredients and I think it might be fixed.

Will know tomorrow morning, if the remainder has been saved.

Today is the Festival of Smoke and Mirrors day

When : Always March 29th


Smoke and Mirrors Day is a day of illusions. The term "smoke and mirrors" means something is not really as it appears to be. People often put up smoke and mirrors to hide something.

What are you hiding today???
