May 21st

Busy day today. Went to talk to the library. Did some shopping. Threw dinner in the crock pot. Made phone calls. Now I’m trying to catch up with myself.

I am going to post some poetry that will be read at the Library on Wednesday. Please follow the poetry links.

New poems that have been posted are “Dreams of Yesterday,” “The Land of Horses,” “Grandma’s Pantry,” and “Duty Calls.”

Then I will get back to the National days. IF anyone has any special comments or requests please leave me a comment.


National Days

21 National Memo Day

Today, we celebrate National Memo Day. Have a pen and paper ready, and take valuable notes. It doesn’t matter what the subject is, just be prepared to pass important information to someone.

Why is this a holiday?

Today is a holiday because where would we be without memos? Lost; that’s where! People write themselves and others notes all the time to make sure that we don’t forget things or to deliver a message when we’re not there to give it. It’s a simple thing, I know, but it shouldn’t be overlooked with how important it actually is. So… we celebrate it!

A memo is short for memorandum which is simply something that helps us remember things by jotting down important aspects. They’re used by everyone from children to business owners.

It could be something as simple as a shopping list or a note telling something to use the other door. Or it could be a memo about your business finances… very important stuff!

But when I think of a memo I think of a Post-it Note because I use them all the time! These little 3 inch, square, sticky notes are so handy; I don’t know if I could live without them. Oddly enough, it took Dr. Spencer Silver a while to convince 3M to use his “pressure sensitive adhesive” but eventually, with the help of an idea from Art Fry, they came up with a good use for it. And in 1980 the first Post-it Notes were sold! And hey, if you hate when they fall down because they lost their stickiness then you should check out the Post-it Brand Super Sticky notes that they came out with in 2003!

What memos have you read today?

21 National Waiters and Waitresses Day

In honor of National Waiters and Waitresses Day, I hope everyone will gift themselves with an inside look at the lives of the people who serve your food.

Having worked in a kitchen in college and having served at College Banquets. I respect what these people endure on a day-to-day basis.

They not only are dealing with the public. They are dealing with people who complain about the service, send the food back, make a mess of the food left over and leave an often leave a mess to be cleaned up.

People enjoying going out to eat depend on the service of these people. They expect courtesy, fast and accurate service, with a pleasant atmosphere. Is it too much to ask that in return those serving you the meals you ordered receive the same in return.

They work for lower wages because they expect them to get a 15% time and when they don’t they are taking home below minimum wage. However, they are their everyday standing on their feet for long hours so that the public can have a day free from their own kitchen.

Let us honor them today and if you should go out to eat reach deep into your pocket and tip them high today.

IF you have a favorite server send them an appreciation card. Let them know that their job is important and that they are appreciated.

So today we honor those waitresses and waiters that take care of the public.


Today is Strawberry and Cream Day.

There are many different recipes for this. You can go with strawberry shortcake. A dish of Strawberries, Strawberries on pancakes or waffles, or just eat them fresh with Cream.

No matter how you enjoy them. Today is a great day to enjoy Strawberries.


For me today I am going to enjoy barbequed spareribs, baked potates, and cauliflower.


So until next time 🙂
