February 9: National Bagels and Lox Day, National Pizza Pie Day

Quote of the Day
“The bagel is a lonely roll to eat all by yourself because in order for the true taste to come out you need your family. One to cut the bagels, one to toast them, one to put on the cream cheese and the lox, one to put them on the table and one to supervise.”
Gertrude Berg (1899-1966)

Today is also National Pizza Pie Day in which Chef Nisa Burns who in honor of this day, share’s this easy Margherita Pizza recipe with you, which you can also find her college cook book at,Kitchenability 101….. link below!
Easy for College Students and beginners to try out, now this is a recipe book all College or University students should have when living on their own, since working at Centennial College Residence & Conference Centre for the last 10 years, students share a small kitchen to do there cooking which I’ll notice alot of frozen pizza is bought along with ording takeout, instead of trying to make it home made which is the healthy choice if they had the time and money.

Today is also National Hugging Day!
I remember a couple of years ago when we had a youth group who book at the Conference Centre for a summer camp retreat in teaching youths on creating a better world we live in with learning and creating peace into today’s society.
They had sign posted in the hallway outside the meeting room “FREE HUGS” along with a piece of paper on their shirt marked “FREE HUGS” when on break walking the hallways. It was up beat, smiles, and lots of hugging with everyone and anyone from all types of backgrounds no matter who you where. This group was spreading a message to everyone who they came across with in giving FREE HUGS to strangers even myself. It created a happy feeling in people’s eyes when they were hugged, it was amazing to see a positive feeling in the youth group who took it further by going out to the mall close by to give FREE HUGS to strangers and to see what kind of respond they will get in return.
They had managed to give out a lot of FREE HUGS in a couple of hours as people could not believe what was taking place in front of their own eyes. It was probably the most happiest mall with happy shoppers all getting hugs to relief shopping stress. It was a way to set an example for the world, was to see the good in everybody and to create peace and friendship instead of war. While wars where taking place back then in other countries and still are today along with ongoing suicide bombers we all need to step up to the plate and some time hug someone you love, care, or even a stranger like in the case of the youth camp did a couple of years ago! I believe they have grown and are still reaching out to all the communities to help get the message out for world peace.
The only sad thing was that mall security did not like what they where doing and had to remove them all for being on private property for socializing which the group carry on to a bigger mall downtown in the city of Toronto.
FREE HUGS were born again and again and again till security had caught up with the youth group to have them removed again. So they had decided to move on to the streets of downtown Toronto, the longest street in the world that I know of is called Yonge Street. So today let’s all not be law enforcers and just hug someone you love, care, or a friend, neighbour, classmate, co-worker, customer, client, teacher, boss or even your pet.
Happy Hugging Day!
My free hugs to everyone online today! But that will be hard to do! …..O.K. maybe we should come up with National Hug your screen/monitor Day! ……. lol 😉
