February 3rd

Never know how the day is going to start!

The sun is shining, the sky is blue it looks beautiful outside and yet you know it’s one of those cold brisk mornings.

While I try to wake up I read my emails. I never know what is in store for me. This morning I must share one with you.


I don’t know who to credit for writing this but I couldn’t resist passing it on. Hope you  all  enjoy the humor in it.

Coffee Hurts

While eating lunch with a friend and  her 6 year old grandaughter.

She was pretty animated as she talked about school and friends and teachers.

While eating lunch with a friend and her 6-year-old granddaughter.

As I sipped my coffee, I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?”

She said “It’s President’s Day!” She is a smart kid.

So, I asked “What does President’s Day mean?” Waiting for her reply with something about Washington or Lincoln etc.

She replied, “President’s Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House , and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of unemployment.”

You know it hurts when coffee spurts out your nose!  🙂


Celebrate National Wear Red Day® on Friday, February 3, 2012 when Americans nationwide will wear red to show their support for women’s heart health. Show off your favorite red dress, red shirt, red tie, or Red Dress Pin to raise awareness that heart disease—the #1 killer of women—is largely preventable.


The Day Music Died – Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash in 1959.

On February 3, 1959, a small plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, killed three American rock and roll pioners” Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P ” the Big Bopper Richardson, as well as the pilot, Roger Peterson. The day was later called the Day the Music Died by Don McLean , in his song “American Pie.” The plane crash has been called the first and greatest tragedy rock and roll has ever suffered.

I remember hearing the radio broadcast of this day. I was only nine years old but I remember how sad everyone was.  Richie was just becoming a popular star and had a fear of flying. Buddy Holly was already popular and so was the Big Bopper. Anyone who liked Rock and Roll followed these names.  The weather was horrible and deadlines had to be kept. However, this is one time no plane should have taken off. America lost that day what could have been the greatest impact on the World of Music.

I hope everyone will take time today and listen to music by these great musicians and honor them. Keep their memory and their music alive for they were amongst the greatest musicians of their time.



National Carrot Cake Day:


Everyone loves cake, Everyone should love carrots. Here’s a wonderful treat for the day.

I’m not going to provide you with a recipe because there are so many different ones. If you don’t have your own go online and find your favorite site for recipes.

This would also make a really nice treat for Super Bowl Sunday. Whatever you do take time to enjoy a special treat.


Now that the Groundhog has gone back into his hole for six weeks we can continue with our winter and get it over. Hopefully not every day will be the same. Hopefully each day will bring some glimmer of spring being around the corner. Watch for the birds as they start to return.

Watch for the crocus as the start to come up. The first signs of nature will tell us when Spring is finally close at hand.

Until then Stay safe and warm. Enjoy Music and Cake today.

Until Next time 🙂
