August 13, is National Filet Mignon Day & International Lefthanders Day

Quote of the Day
“Nearly everyone wants as least one outstanding meal a day.” Duncan Hines

Today is a great day to grill your filet mignon with using your left hand today, because it’s International Lefthanders Day and if your a righthander like me, maybe all of us righthanders should try being lefthanders for a day and see how we do! Who knows the filet mignon may turn out to be awesome and you didn’t know you had the skills in you to do things with your lefthand!
It’s o.k. to be born either way!
All the best!

If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”
