Day 10

Today is the 3rd day of the 2nd week, the 10th day of the 1st month, the 10th day of 2023, and: 
  • Houseplant Appreciation Day
  • League of Nations Day – the League came into effect in 1920, after being approved by 42 countries the year before, as a direct result of the intentions of many that WWI would indeed be “the war to end all wars
  • National Bittersweet Chocolate Day [AKA dark chocolate in case you were wondering]
  • National Booch Day [AKA Kombucha]
  • National Cut Your Energy Costs Day
  • National Oysters Rockefeller Day
  • National Poetry at Work Day
  • National Shop for Travel Day
  • Peculiar People Day – this is the day to celebrate those in our lives who are eccentric, unique, nonconforming to what is “normal”.   While the origin of the day is apparently unknown, The Peculiar People, a Christian movement that was an offshoot of from the Methodists,  was founded in 1838 by John Banyard in Rochford, Essex.
  • Save the Eagles Day
Quote of the Day:

~ Molly Ivins, American newspaper columnist, author, political commentator, and humorist. 

When was the last time the entire world was at peace?  Was there ever a period when homo sapiens was not banding together in communities and trying to beat each other up?  When was the last time my country was at peace?  Apparently in the entire history of the US, there were only about 15 years of peace – and that was intermittent.  Can you remember a time when our troops were not fighting somewhere?

We sing of “peace on earth and goodwill to men” but we don’t live it.  Peace is something that might happen someday, not today.
