Somehow I keep hitting a button and deleting everything. This is my 3rd attempt...maybe third time is a charm.
So, Angela is sick and she sounds terrible. She doesn't have much of a fever but the coughing sounds bad. I'm sure she'll share and give it to me next. Well, I was just getting in to a twitter party when we heard a crack and a bunch of pops. The lights then went out. The lights flickered on and off a couple of times before they went out for good. We have a lot of candles and flashlights around so we had light in no time. My neighbor wasn't so lucky, as she was locked out. Dawn came to us to get the spare key and it turned in to a neighbor party. LOL. I saw neighbors that I haven't seen in months out and about. All in all, the power was out in our area for not quite 2 hrs.
So...what are we celebrating today.....
1). Dentist's Day: This is the day where it is time for you to boost your dental health with lots of big, toothy smiles. Also thank you dentists, since he/she's an important person in keeping your smile bright, and your teeth and mouth healthy. I don't understand why some people are afraid of the dentist. I love mine, as do my kids!
2). National Frozen Food Day: This is the day to celebrate frozen food. Frozen foods hit the grocery stores in the early 1930s after Mr. Birdseye himself invented this precious commodity. More than 50 years later, the frozen delights got their own special holiday. Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 193, designated March 6, 1984, as ``Frozen Food Day'' and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation upon this occasion. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan made the chilly announcement that March 6 is officially Frozen Food Day. He called upon all Americans to "observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities." So make a frozen dinner...or better yet, celebrate this frozen food day with ICE CREAM!
3). Oreo Cookie Day: Happy 101st Birthday to the Oreo cookie! In 1912, Nabisco put together two chocolate cookies with creme in the middle. Today's Oreos look very much like those from 1912, except for a different design on the cookie.
4). Learn What Your Name Means Day: This is the day to research and learn the meaning of your name --- first, last, or both. There are pleanty of sites on the internet that can with this. My first name, Janet, means God's Gracious Gift.....(though I bet my brothers wouldn't agree).
5). Sofia Kovalevskaya Math Day: This holiday celebrates the life of Sofia Kovalevskaya and the contributions she made to mathmatics (celebrated on her birthday). She was the first major Russian female mathematician, responsible for important original contributions to analysis, differential equations and mechanics, and the first woman appointed to a full professorship in Northern Europe. This holiday is also a grant-making program of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), funding workshops across the United States which encourage girls to explore mathematics.
I hope all of you are having a better hump day than I am. It's taken me HOURS to get this post saved and posted.
