Today is set aside to remember your roots. Genealogy Day celebrates all the skeletons on our closets as we map our our forefathers. DNA has added an extra layer to this story. But be careful. Like my husband you might discover your father isn’t who you thought he was.

Just like a Hitchcock movie the plots and twists could take you to a land never known before. Although it doesn’t celebrate his birthdate or death, today is National Alfred Hitchcock Day.

So what will 2022 bring. Flowers. And how do I know that? Because I’m planting flowers. Join me in the celebration of National Plant a Flower Day.

Scallops aren’t my favorite food, but the abductor muscle of bihalves or two shelled mollusks are celebrated today as National Baked Scallops Day. Baked or cooked your favorite way, I guess if you put enough garlic butter on them they would be edible. 😉

When I was young, I was told:
‘You’ll see, when you’re fifty.’
I am fifty and I haven’t seen a thing.

Knowledge is power, so let’s celebrate World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. But my belief is that knowledge is only power if you take it off the shelf and pass it around. So, let’s share. Phone someone and tell them something interesting.

Lets go morel hunting and celebrate National Mushroom Hunting Day. The treat of my childhood, as my mother’s friend would bring baskets of morels for her. Such a delicious treat. Fried in butter with salt and pepper. No tame or cultivated mushroom could every compare.

And what would go better than a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. So break open the bottle and celebrate Pino Grigio Day.

Here’s a toast to your health. My you live long and prosper. ❤
