Good Wednesday





June 4th...............

Applesauce Cake Day


Applesauce Cake Day is a time to enjoy an old and often forgotten goodie. This is a truly delicious day.

It doesn't take much to enjoy Applesauce Cake Day. Just eat a piece of applesauce cake. The only problem is finding it. If you're lucky, a bakery or a restaurant will pick up on this day, and offer it as a special today. Otherwise, you may have to make an applesauce cake from scratch.

Hug Your Cat Day

Today is Hug Your Cat Day. Go ahead and give your cat a big, furry hug.

Cat lovers can really get into this day. If you're a cat lover, you can really appreciate the warm, cozy feeling you get when you curl up on a couch or chair, and hug your cat. The only problem is, your cat will most likely only allow a brief hug before sauntering away. If your cat is a true hugger, count your blessings.

Dog lovers...sorry, but hugging your dog will not suffice. If you are going to be "into" this day, you simply must hug a cat...your cat.

You don't have a cat? You can correct this today. The month of June is "Adopt a Cat Month".

How many hours did we all spend playing this game?

It's also Old Maid's Day

Still haven't found "Mr. Right"? Are the years are beginning to pile up? Don't worry or fret. This day is for you. Old Maid's Day brings awareness to those of us who have not yet found (and caught) our soul mates.

Old Maid's Day exists to put into the spotlight all of the fair maidens who have yet to find their Prince Charming.

Ladies, celebrate Old Maids Day by getting out and getting noticed. Guys, open your eyes.... "Mrs. Right" may be right under your nose.

Origin of Old Maid Day:

The year was 1946 (or thereabouts). WWII was over, and millions of soldiers were returning home. There was a huge increase in marriages. Somewhere during this time, it was noted that there were plenty of Maidens waiting for the returning GI's. The ladies were not getting younger, as they awaited the return of their GI.  

The long war had disrupted, and put on hold, many relationships. And, many GI's did not return home. Dances and socials were held to bring together returning soldiers and the many available, unmarried ladies. It is from this occurrence, that Old Maid's Day emerged.  


The Bayer Aspirin Company trademarked the brand name Heroin in 1898.

Bowing to pressure from anti-smoking groups, Hasbro took away Mr. Potato Head's pipe in 1987.

Prior to 1953 the slogan of L&M cigarettes was "just what the doctor ordered."

Denny's restaurants used to be known as Danny's restaurants.

The original name for the Bank of America: the Bank of Italy.

At one time, tulip bulbs were traded on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange.
