I have decided what I want to be when I grow up. I want to be a philanthropist.
Giving pennies just doesn't feel like enough any more. I want to give more.
Meanwhile, I'll do what I can.
Bahamas Independence Day
Clerihew Day (A light form of verse, named after Edmund Clerihew Bentley, whose birthday was today.)
Don't Step on a Bee Day (They are having enough trouble these days.)
Godiva Day (She made her famous ride today in 1040)
Knut the Reaper's Day, Scotland
National Pina Colada Day
Night of Sorrows
Seven Brothers Day
Teddy Bear Picnic Day (So don't worry if your bear goes missing, he'll be back tonight.)
