In the food department, it’s both Date Nut Bread Day and Kiwi Day. The former is probably for the Northern Hemisphere and the latter for the Southern. That’s just my guess considering here in the north, kiwis ripen mid summer, not mid winter.

Happy Birthday to Barbara Billingsly (1922). If you don’t know who that is, ask an old person. Old people are so very handy to have around, what with knowing so much cool stuff. Hint: She was the mom in this show. Barbara shares this day with Ralph Phinnes (1962), Diane Sawyer (1945), Robin and Maurice Gibb (1949), and Hector Elizondo (1936).
