Young Readers Day
We are all young at heart so today is a day for everyone! *wink*
For people that have very few years lived so far this is a day to focus on reading and instilling the sense of fun and wonder that books hold.

Forget-Me-Not Day
Why is the flower named forget-me-not?

Thinking outside the box: It's a wooden canal boat, it was an illustrated, British annual, it's a 1922 silent film, it's a Psych episode (great show!), and it's a Motown hit.







USMC Day
Happy Birthday Marines!

Always Faithful - The United States Marine Corps
The United States Marine Corps adopted the motto "Semper Fidelis" in 1883, on the initiative of Colonel Charles McCawley (January 29, 1827 – October 13, 1891), the 8th Commandant of the Marine Corps.
There were three mottos prior to Semper Fidelis including Fortitudine (meaning "with courage") antedating the War of 1812, Per Mare, Per Terram ("by sea, by land"; presumably inherited from the British Royal Marines, whose motto it was previously), and, up until 1843, there was also the Marines' Hymn motto "To the Shores of Tripoli". "Semper fidelis" signifies the dedication and loyalty that individual Marines have for 'Corps and Country', even after leaving service. Marines frequently shorten the motto to "Semper Fi" /ˌsɛmpər ˈfaɪ/.
On the United States Marine Corps Seal, the symbols of the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor emblem holds a ribbon emblazoned "Semper Fidelis". (source)

Sesame Street Day 

Dude, I LOVED Sesame Street growing up!  I have very vivid memories of that show.  One particular memory includes my brother. I had the chicken pox and my Mom, a nurse mind you, had me infect my brother so he would get them also and we would both be done.  I remember sitting at a small table watching Sesame Street with my brother, both of us trying not to scratch, and my Mom putting an oatmeal paste on us to help with the itching. 

It's how I learned to count...I still hum this song to this day!
