Happy Thursday Guys and Dolls:
I promise not to be too sarcastic today, but when things get me bugged I get nasty so that’s the end of that. Some neat holidays today:
KINDERGARTEN DAY – Friedrich Froebel started the first Kindergarten in Germany in 1837. Innovative principles used were song and play, daily lessons in drawing, design and other artistic activities. Froebel believed this to be harmonious in cultivating the lives of the children.
SAN JACINTO DAY IN TEXAS – The day Texas won independence from Mexico by defeating the army of General Antonio de Padua Maria Severino Lopez de Santa Anna (what a mouthful). He got his for what he did to the guys in the Alamo. If you are ever in San Antonio, Texas visit the Alamo it’s quite a place in history to see.
RED BARON DAY – Is it the frozen pizza of course not. Today honors Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen widely known as the Red Baron. Richthofen was a German fighter pilot in World War I with the German Army Air Service and considered the aces of aces credited with 80 kills. Don’t worry he did not hurt Snoopy.
BIG WORD DAY – Here is my big word of the day – “HONORIFICABILITUDINITATIBUS” – which equals “HONORABLENESS.”
TUNA RIGHTS DAY – PLEASE GIVE CHARLIE “THE TUNA” WHAT HOMAGE BELONGS TO HIM TODAY.
Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to all my Speakies celebrating theirs today. Have a nice day and a great evening.
