My computer has been down most of the day, with me trying to fix it. GRR!!! My virus protector didn't pick up something, apparently. I think I got it fixed, but I'm not quite sure.
So....what are we celebrating.....
1). Peach Ice Cream Day: In celebration of the peach harvest, the ice cream companies make peach ice cream. Its hard to find it other times of the year. I like peaches okay...but I like other fruit better.
2). Yellow Pig Day: HUH??? This holiday is a mathematician's holiday celebrating yellow pigs (is there such a thing!?!), and the number 17. It is celebrated annually since the early 1960's, primarily on college campuses, and primarily by mathematicians. On campus, Yellow Pig Cake and Yellow Pig Carols are tradition! he Yellow Pig was the brainstorm of mathematicians Michael Spivak and David C. Kelly in the early 1960's. They were students at Princeton University, studying mathematics. History was made as they were listing interesting properties of the number 17 (can you imagine the interesting properties!?). During this thought wave, the yellow pig was born. I've never heard of this...but, okay.
3). Wrong Way Corrigan Day: Douglas Groce Corrigan, an American aviator, left Brooklyn, NY’s Floyd Bennett Field, ostensibly headed for Los Angeles, CA, in a 1929 Curtiss Robin monoplane. He landed 28 hours, 13 minutes later at Baldonnell Airport in Dublin, Ireland, after a 3,150-mile nonstop flight without radio or special navigation equipment and in violation of American and Irish flight regulations. He was SUPPOSE to be in California...LOL. Born at Galveston, TX, Jan 22, 1907, Corrigan received a hero’s welcome home; he was nicknamed “Wrong Way” Corrigan because he claimed he accidentally followed the wrong end of his compass needle. Died at Santa Ana, CA, Dec 9, 1995.
Thankfully, there isn't much to celebrate today.....have a good Tuesday. Tomorrow night I will NOT be around.
