"Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted." David Bly

"OK, if people don't come out to show their support by noon, start sending out the subpoenas."

Oldie but goodie:
A young couple, just married, were in their honeymoon suite on their wedding night. As they were undressing for bed, the husband — who was a big burly man — tossed his trousers to his bride and said, “Here, put these on.”

She put them on and the waist was twice the size of her body. “I cant wear your trousers,” she said.

“That’s right, said the husband, “and don’t you ever forget it. I’m the man who wears the pants in this family.”

With that she flipped him her panties and said, “Try these on.”

He tried them on and found he could only get them on as far as his kneecaps. “Hell,” he said. I cant get into your panties!”

She replied, “That’s right, and that’s the way its going to stay until your attitude changes.”

It's Be An Angel Day! For today, do random acts of kindness for others. A day to remind us to reach out to all with kindness. To remember everyone is struggling with something even if we can't see it.
--National Bao Day: a salute to Chinese filled dumplings, sometimes called steamed buns; round, soft and smooth, they can be savory (filled with meat or vegetables) or spicy or sweet.
--National Burger Day: observed in the UK, a salute to the almost-a-complete meal; created around the turn of the 19th century, burgers got a boost in popularity at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.
--National Pecan Torte Day: a yummy Southern dessert, similar to a cake but denser and creamier.
--National Eat a Peach Day: a salute to a very special fruit; peaches were brought to the Americas by the Spanish in the 16th century.
--National Tooth Fairy Day: a salute to a childhood tradition; children were receiving gifts for their teeth in Medieval Europe but the Tooth Fairy came around in the 20th century.
--Southern Hemisphere Hoodie Hoo Day: a salute to a nonsensical superstition; for the areas in the southern hemisphere which are having their winters; superstition is that everyone should go outside at high noon and yell "Hoodie Hoo" to chase winter away and help spring arrive; the northern hemisphere version is around February 20th.
--Never Bean Better Day: this day was started in honor of celebrity therapy dog named Bean; today is a reminder of the enjoyment we receive from the companionship of pets.
--Take Your Cat to the Vet Day: a reminder to take our feline friends to the vet for regular checkups as they are notorious for hiding that they don't feel well.
--World Plant Milk Day: a salute to the various alternatives to dairy.
--Black Women's Equal Pay Day: this day represents how far black women nationwide had to work into 2019 to match what white, non-Hispanic men earned in 2018. Nationally, black women working full-time, year-round earned 61 cents for every dollar earned by white men working full-time, year-round.
--National Surgical Oncologist Day: a salute to a member of the oncology team; surgical oncologists help to both diagnose cancer and cure it through surgery. Whether they perform a needle biopsy to take a sample or perform surgery to remove all or parts of the cancerous tissue, they work with a team of experts to provide you with the best possible care available.
--In 1851, the 'Auld Mug' trophy is awarded for the first time to the winners of a sailing race around England's Isle of Wight. The schooner 'America' sails into first place with an ample lead, and so the competition between the world's best racing yachts will be known as the 'America's Cup.' (from Bing)
