Sorry to be blunt, but I just *hate* the "And Today Is..." feature. It was kind of funny for a while, but now it's just really annoying! Are you really planning to do it forever?

Other than that, love the blog!

ironic that PollyQ pulls the punch with "sorry" on all or nothing day!?

It's the feast day of Saints Joachim and Ann - teh Virgin's parents.

Today is also the anniversary of the attack on the Moncada military base by Fidel Castro and his allies, often regarded as the beginning of the Cuban revolution

In response to PollyQ, I actually came to the site this AM thinking of how much I like all the strange days that people use to promote ideas, and how I'm happy that someone digs this stuff up.

So rock on, and keep giving all that you can "And Today Is..." :)

PollyQ, I really enjoy starting the day with an interesting, "today is", although I don't always agree with the choices... for instance, today is the anniversary of the first robbery by that great Western bad man, Black Bart... The Gentleman Stage Coach bandit... "July 26, 1875: In Calaveras County, the Sonora to Milton stage was robbed by a man wearing a flour sack over his head with two holes cut out for the eyes."

Bart would often leave a poem at the scene of his crime, or in the strong box abandoned somewhere else and signed his name po8.
Once he stopped a stage coach and told the driver, "Sure hope you have a lot of gold in that strongbox, I'm nearly out of money."

PollyQ: if you are going to complain then GIVE IT YOUR ALL!
Pull no punches! Knock yourself out!
Give 'em the "what fer"! etc etc.

Or do nothing at all.
