May 24, is National Escargot Day, Asparagus Day & Brother’s Day

Quote of the Day
“Nobody is sure how this got started. Probably a couple of French master chefs were standing around one day, and they found a snail, and one of them said: ‘I bet that if we called this something like “escargot,” tourists would eat it.’  They they had a hearty laugh, because ‘escargot’ is the French word for ‘fat crawling bag of phlegm.'”

March 23, is National Chip & Dip, National Melba Toast Day & OK Day

March 23 is National Chip and Dip, National Melba Toast Day, & OK Day

Quote of the Day
Chogyam Trungpaon on Courage:
There are times to cultivate and create, when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures. There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade. And finally of course, there are times that are cold, and cutting and empty, times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream. Those rhythms in life are natural events. They weave into one another as day follows night, bringing, not messages of hope and fear, but messages of how things are.

OK with that said, let’s begin with
another Chip and Dip day which we had on March 14, National Potato Chip Day, what’s the differance? “A chip for a potato, a potato for a chip”, let’s play poker and get the chips and potato chips out! lol
Is anyone in? ……. if not it’s OK day!
