Harder than ever with all the mal-practice suits, we remember Doctor-Patient Trust Day. Having trust in your Doctor is so important for good health. That being said I think Doctors over prescribe and at the end of the day you are responsible for your health and well being. So be certain to eat your apple a day to keep the Doctor away.

Today everyone is a wee bit Irish as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. He is remembered for driving the snakes out of Ireland, green beer and everything green. Also known as Corned Beef and Cabbage Day. So put on some green; drink some green beer; have some corned beef and cabbage; and celebrate on the green rivers. 😉

Today is a day for my Granddaughter, Pokemon Day. She knows all the names of all the Pokeman and loves hunting for them.

So on No-Brainer day, it’s a no-brainer that hunting Pokeman is a great way to get exercise and meet new people.

It’s strange the the end of February is when we have National Strawberry Day. But next Week in Plant City Florida, the annual Strawberry Festival begins. So be certain to have a big bowl of Florida Strawberries. 😉

Nothing would be done at all
if one waited until one could do it so well
that no one could find fault with it.

Happy February Holiday Monday!

In Canada, the provinces are divided on what they should call the Holiday Monday in February. Most provinces call it Family Day, while PEI calls it Islander Day and Manitoba calls it Louis Riel Day.

In the USA they call it President’s Day. But whatever you call it we all agree we need a holiday Monday in February.

So get out those sticky buns and celebrate National Sticky Bun Day on this holiday Monday in February. 😉

Betty White Quotes: 100 +24 Days

I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something.

Continuing with the countdown to Valentine’s Day, today is Propose Day. If your planning to propose don’t wait do it today ❤

If your loved one tells you no you can always celebrate National Kite Flying Day and go fly a kite. 😉

I’ve never tried a Molasses Bar, but perhaps today is the day as we celebrate National Molasses Bar Day. I am attending a ladies tea today, so maybe there will be molasses bars there that I could try.
