bizarre holidays: I am in Control Day......... - 03/29/11 09:52 PM
I am in Control Day.........This day will always be on March 30th.  Why?On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt.  Lots of confusion prevailed.  In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here".   Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press focused upon these few words.  Political uproar eventually led to his resignation.  The political junkies in the room may not remember the day but they will remember the statement by the Secretary of State.On that day, … (20 comments)

bizarre holidays: Happy Submarine Day…….. - 03/17/11 05:09 AM
Happy Submarine Day……..This is interesting because this holiday can be celebrated today March 17th or on April 17th.  Now don’t go asking me why I don’t know the answer to that question.This is another question that can be asked.  Submarine Day.... does it celebrate the submersible boat, or the big hero sandwich?  Most everywhere you find documentation on this day, it hails today as a day to celebrate the submarine boat.  And, we would celebrate this event on April 17th, as the U.S. Submarine Force was established on this date in 1900.  So we will celebrate the boat next month and … (9 comments)

March 7th National Crown Roast of Pork Day….There must be a Presidential Proclamation or something in the Congressional records somewhere that will verify this day.  Something that could justify congress spending time to make this a national day!  But alas there is no record or proclamation to be found.So someone certainly must be kidding, right!?  National Crown Roast of Pork Day...
