GOOD MORNING SPEAKIES,
Welcome to Tuesday, March 12, 2013. As usual Joey Z always hopes you are all having a great day so far and may it continue throughout the evening as well. We are into the second week of March and let's see the holidays we honor this week and day.
BUBBLE GUM WEEK - The first bubble gum that comes to my mind is Bazooka Bubble Gum with good old Bazooka Joe with his tale or message inside the wrapper. We had Double Bubble as well and that was a favorite of mine too. Not only did we have bubble gum here are some old gums that still are being sold see if you remember them. Beeman's, Black Jack, C. Howards Scented Gum (in that purple package) and of course Clove Gum. Makes me want to go to the net and order some.
PULMONARY REHAB WEEK - Roe and I know the meaning of that, we still see our Pulmonary Doctor on a regular basis. If you are still smoking, stop it now save your life for yourself and family.
NATIONAL OLDER PERSONS EMPLOYMENT WEEK - I think if you are retirement age and can help on a part-time basis that is great. My only objection is to the older workers who have been on a job for over 40 years, not allowing the younger workers to move up. I have my personal reasons for saying this and my opinion will not change one bit.
FIRST LIBRARY OPENED - Libraries can be traced as far back as 2600 B.C. Ancient libraries were found in Egypt, China, The Library of Alexandria, the Roman Empire and during the Renaissance Period. The first known US public library was in Boston, founded in 1854.
FOOD HOLIDAY FOR TODAY - Today we honor the Baked Scallop. Roe and I love scallops grilled, baked, seasoned with bread crumbs and fried and also in Roe's Christmas fish stew. There are many varieties of scallops, ranging from the tiny, bay scallop to the larger, less tender deep sea scallops. Beware of some unscrupulous markets that have been known to substitute shark for scallops. Beware if the scallops are all of exactly uniform in size and shape, this is an indication of a fake scallop. Speakies enjoy those scallops today and have some for me.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND EVENING.
