October 15th

Hello everyone. Boy does time fly. I have been so busy. I just published two more books. “Coming of Ages in the Rockies” The Rebel Years and ” Fun Things to Learn” A guide for teachers and parents for early childhood.

I will post their links on Wednesday as I have to give them time to go live. They would make wonderful Christmas presents along with any of my books.

I am going to start now at getting caught up with my blog site and as time allows I will go back and do the days missed.

Today is overcast and breezy. Winds are expected to move in ranging up to 60 mph. I expect late after noon I will want to hide 🙂

 

15 White Cane Safety Day

White Cane Safety Day is a national observance in the United States, celebrated on October 15 of each year since 1964. The date is set aside to celebrate the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane.

On October 6, 1964, a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress, H.R. 753, was signed into law as Pub.L. 88-628, and codified at 36 U.S.C. § 142. This resolution authorized the President of the United States to proclaim October 15 of each year as “White Cane Safety Day”.

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the first White Cane Safety Day proclamation within hours of the passage of the joint resolution.

In 2011, White Cane Safety Day was also named Blind Americans Equality Day by President Barack Obama.[1]

According to Sesame Street Magazine, October 15th is National Grouch Day — a day for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.

A Grouch’s mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. Only then will a Grouch feel in touch with his or her world and be happy. Yet, even though a Grouch may show happiness at anyone’s misfortune (including his or her own), a Grouch would never admit to being happy. Such is the stability of a Grouch’s life: so balanced, and yet so unbalanced.Grouches1.jpg

15 National Roast Pheasant Day

The pheasant is a beautiful and flavorful fowl that is a popular prize for game hunters in North America and Europe. To coincide with the arrival of pheasant hunting season and to suggest but one way to cook the bird, this day has been designated National Roast Pheasant Day. Hunt for your pheasant recipes on CDK today!

 

No matter what you choose to celebrate today enjoy your day. Remember today is all about equality and good food. The white cane has helped many to find freedom in a difficult world. The Grouch has found a place to fit in to our society.  There is nothing better than chicken or turkey Caccitore which is a recipe my family saves for that left over turkey after the holidays.

There is nothing better than getting out for a days walk and quietly observing a pheasant in its natural habitat and at the end of the day bringing home fresh dinner for the family to share.

So until next time 🙂
