Snack Foods Day
It takes 1,000 pounds
of potatoes to make
of potato chips.
And a hearty belly laugh
will burn 10 of those calories.
Today we say happy birthday to Babe Ruth (1895, and BTW yesterday it was Hank Aaron’s). Over on our calendar of a Month of Smiley Silliness read a quote of his which I really love. BTW again, I’ve been called Baby Ruth my whole life, but not because of the ball player (even though I grew up to be a baseball fan). It was to differentiate me from my wonderful grandma, Grandma Ruth.
Bob Marley is our other birthday boy (1945). He said, “Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?” Wise man. And please remember, if the answer is NO, you still have time to do the work to change the answer to YES.
Additionally it is Raisin Day, in honor of the start of the company Sunmaid raisins back in 1917. Raisins, now there’s a healthy snack food. I just had a slice of raisin toast to celebrate.
It is also Chopsticks Day (not so great with potato chips or raisins). Anyone know the Chinese word for chopsticks? The literal translation is “quick little bamboo fellows.”
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Snack Food Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
