Today we celebrate:

National Pineapple Upside-down Cake Day – This is a fun cake to make but somehow I never manage to make it without it breaking somehow when I flip it over to get it out of the pan.

Look Alike Day – Did you know that you look just like Jennifer Aniston? Really, I swear! I think everyone looks like someone else. I found someone in Texas years ago that looked just like my sister. No one else thought so, but she really did!

Volunteer Recognition Day – This is a day to honor the thousands and thousands of volunteers who spend so much of their time helping others in a myriad of ways every day.

Auctioneers Day – A day to reflect on one of the oldest professions in history and to celebrate its' future. Today we have online and in person auctions to participate in, maybe in a hundred or so years we will be able to participate holographically.

Husband Appreciation Day – Celebrated on the third Saturday of April, this is a day to appreciate your husband if you have one. Do something nice for him today, be extra sweet and maybe make his favorite dinner.

Record Store Day – Also celebrated on the third Saturday of April, this day was created in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave, and Brian Poehner to celebrate the art of music. This day is recognized world wide with musical artists of all kinds participating in special appearances, performances, meeting fans, and special releases of CDs.

Spring Astronomy Day – Begun in 1973 by Doug Berger, President of the Astronomical Association of Northern California. The original plan was to set up telescopes in urban locations so people who did not normally get to spend much time looking at the stars could do so on this special day. This day is now sponsored by a variety of astronomical groups and is a day for interaction between regular people and astronomy enthusiasts.

International Marconi Day – At first glance, I thought this was Macaroni Day too, but it is most definitely not. Born on April 25, 1874, Guglielmo Marconi played an enormous role in the invention of wireless telegraphy. In other words, we have radio capability because of him. We celebrate his birthday on a Saturday close to his birthday with amateur radio events going on all over the world.

To celebrate today, keep your ham radio on all day so you don't miss anything. Then volunteer to make a pineapple upside down cake for your husband to enjoy while he looks at the stars through the telescope you found for him at an auction, and listens to his favorite music. You are sure that is your husband, right? You never know, it could be a look alike who is impersonating him to get a piece of cake.
