If there is anything that goes faster than a birthday, it is birthday money.

Sometimes, I just wish for one or two things of my own -- that wouldn't get immediately destroyed by everyone else who lives here.

Pipe dreams.

Today is:

Anne Hutchinson Memorial Day (There is a lesson here, but those who need it won't learn it.)

Flitch Day (Supposedly, married couples tried to prove that they had lived in harmony for the whole previous year, and were given a slab of bacon if they could. Very few "took home the bacon".)

Isra Al Mi'Raj (Ascent of the Prophet Muhammad - Islam)

National Daiquiri Day

National Ice Cream Day

National Liberation Day (Nicaragua)

National Raspberry Cake Day

Prince Lot Hula Festival, Honolulu, Hawaii

St. Marcrina's Day

Birthdays Today:

Edgar Degas, 1834

Today in History:

The Circus Maximus in Rome catches fire, 64
Muslim forces defeat the Visigoths, 711
Lady Jane Grey deposed, 1553
Rosetta Stone discovered by Napoleon's soldiers, 1799
The first rocket with a nuclear warhead fired in Yucca Flat, Nevada, 1957
Johnstown, Pa., floods kill 76, 1977
