Today we celebrate:

National Raisin & Spice Bar Day – This appears to be a southern dessert so perhaps my southern friends could weigh in on whether this would be a good recipe.

Go For Broke Day – This was the motto of the 443nd Regimental Combat Team, a segregated Japanese-American unit serving in World War II, and one of the most decorated units in the army. The day specifically highlights one of the members of that unit, Sadao S. Munemori, who died on this day in 1945 in the process of saving two men in his unit. He is also credited with contributing greatly to the ultimate success of his unit's mission.

National Deep Dish Pizza Day – Originated in Chicago in 1943, the purpose of this day is to spread awareness of this delicious alternative to the junk food classic.

Hospital Admitting Clerks Day – The admitting clerks are vital members of the hospital staff. It's not just about the doctors and nurses, without people to handle the paper work and administrative details, the hospital would not be able to function.

National Walk To Work Day – Always celebrated on the first Friday in April, get those sneakers laced up and let's hope it doesn't rain today.

To celebrate today, walk to work this morning. Then since it will be lunch time when you get there and you will have worked up a big appetite, have some deep dish pizza and raisin and spice bars for lunch. You're long trip walking home will result in a twisted ankle so you might as well just head to the local hospital now. Make sure you thank the admitting clerks for their hard work while you're there and tell them about Mr. Munemori's great sacrifice.
