Farm Animals’ Day
Support, demand, and
work for the humane
treatment of Farm Animals.
Speak for those
who cannot speak.

Seems appropriate that Farm Animals’ Day coinciding with National Day Of Nonviolence Day. I vote for no violence to animals as well as people. All living creatures want to live without pain, suffering, or fear.
And speaking of non-violence, 53 years ago today, in 1963, Martin Luther King gave his “I have a dream speech.” Want to know something silly. Just now typing fast, with the help of auto-correct, made “I have a dream speech.” into: “I have a cream spinach.” And then I noticed that it is Spinach Month. Funny auto correct, funny coincidence.
I wonder if Dr. King chose this day for his speech because it was Gandhi‘s birthday (1869). I also wonder which, King‘s speech or Gandhi‘s birthday, prompted the holiday namers to name this day Non-Violence Day. And by the way, who are the holiday namers?
Quite a few more birthdays for today: Groucho Marx (1890), Bud Abbott (1895), Sting (1951), and Annie Liebovitz (1949). Whoa that’s a lot of creativity for one day. I’d love to dine with them all, but if I had to choose just one . . . well I have had a crush on Sting for a very long time. Perhaps a persimmon pie in leu of cake. since it’s Persimmon Appreciation Day .
Happy Techies’ Day! I know a few techies, and they are wonderful, everyone of them. My favorite techie is, of course, the one I gave birth to. So nice to have an in-house IT guy! Thanks, Lyle.
Over on the October calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s both the start of You Matter Week and World Smile Day. So get out there and spread some smiles around. Smile at a stranger (they matter) and I bet they smile back. Smiling back is almost impossible to control. We form a mimicking smile in about 1/300th of a second!
