February 28th

Hello world. Well it’s still cold. I’m up and moving better but sore. The sky is blue and there is a breeze. Snow is suppose to be moving in our direction.

I am so ready for spring.

Well let’s see what’s happening with the National Days for today.

National Days

National Pancake Day

February 28, 2012

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates. On February 28, 2012, guests from around the country are invited to celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals(c) and other designated local charities.

Sorry I jumped the gun the other day and thought it was over. You still have time to rush to your local IHOP for their delicious pancakes. What a good way to enjoy dinner.

Feb. 28: National Tooth Fairy Day, Chocolate Souffle Day, Spay Day, DNA Discovered

National Tooth Fairy Day

 

Although the tooth fairy has been portrayed as a male in both the “Tooth Fairy” and in “The Santa Clause 2,” the small fairy responsible for collecting baby teeth is traditionally depicted as female. In Medieval Europe baby teeth tradition held the teeth be buried in hopes of “growing” permanent teeth, according to the University of Florida’s Center for Children’s Literature and Culture. In the U.S. when a child looses baby teeth, they are instructed to place them under a pillow. In the morning the tooth has been magically replaced with money.

 

Celebrate by:

 

* Encouraging kids to brush and floss.

 

* Reading books about the tooth fairy.

 

* Replacing a worn toothbrush with a new one.

 

Chocolate Souffle Day

 

Get your toothbrush ready because you’ll need it after enjoying a chocolate souffle. Souffle means “puffed up” and light dish with a stiff shape, all thanks to the air in the dish’s eggs. “Patrons of La Grande Taverne de Londres, which opened in Paris in the 1780s, were perhaps the first to enjoy this dessert souffle,” according to the “Horizon Cookbook and Illustrated History of Eating and Drinking Through the Ages” (Food Timeline). Easy and souffle are not frequently found together, but here you go, a recipe for a “so-easy chocolate souffle.”

 

U.S. Spay Day

 

The Humane Society promotes Spay Day to highlight the importance of spaying or neutering pets. The observance occurs on the last Tuesday of February annually, although you can help save animal lives by spaying or neutering anytime during the year. Help keep the animal population in check. “In the U.S. as a whole, there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year,” according to the Humane Society.

 

DNA Discovered

 

On Feb. 28, 1953, James Watson “put the two bases into their correct form in cardboard models by moving a hydrogen atom from a position where it bonded with oxygen to a neighboring position where it bonded with nitrogen. Watson and Francis Crick published their discovery of DNA in the British scientific weekly, Nature, on April 25, 1953.

I thank The writer’s at Yahoo for sharing this blog with us.

For my I think that it is a perfectly good time to talk about the tooth fairy since February is Dental Hygiene Month and also Fairy Tale Month. Why not tie the two of them together.

Chocolate Souffle seems like a wonderful way to celebrate when you have had a month of chocolate already.

Then we need to remember we’ve had love our pets day and what is a better way then to take them to the vets keep them healthy and spay so that they don’t have the worries of more pets to compete with.

Hurray for DNA day which has changed the lives of so many people answering many questions that were needed to be answered from parents to criminals.

No matter what you choose to recognize today it is one of those busy unusual days.

I hope that everyone well enjoy their day move forward with whatever projects you have currently going on and realize that February is almost over. It’s hard to believe that March is right around the corner. So until next time 🙂

    I liked the way you have related each day with the National Day- its wonderful indeed. I guess we gather a great deal of knowledge this way, which otherwise we would never have known.
