Today we celebrate:

National Cheeseburger Day – This is a day for burger lovers. Have a cheeseburger today to celebrate.

Air Force Birthday – Officially founded on this day in 1947, the Air Force has been around under different names since 1909 when the US Military purchased its first aircraft.

Chiropractic Founders Day –
On this day in 1895, D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment on Harvey Lillard. Obviously it worked for Mr. Lillard and the practice spread from there.

Hug A Greeting Card Writer Day – We all depend upon greeting cards to say the things that we didn't even know we wanted to say. We have no idea who they are but these writers can make us laugh or cry or feel like someone is really thinking about us. See if you can find one today and give them a hug.

National Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day –
This day was designated by Congress in 2008 to increase awareness of the issues involved with this disorder. It was intended to be a single event and not a yearly event, but some people still recognize it every year.

National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day – Celebrated on this day for the last six years, this is a day to focus on recognizing the challenges faced by the older generation regarding HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment. This is a day for people who are more than 50 years old when they get this devastating diagnosis, as well as the people who are grandparents who become the primary caregivers of their grandchildren after their children have died because of HIV/AIDS.

Sukkot – A Jewish holiday that lasts for seven days. It begins this evening at sundown and ends at sundown on the 25th. For the first two days, work is not allowed. For the last five days, work is allowed but there are restrictions. This holiday is celebrated with pilgrimages, and special blessings and it is intended that people will remember the sukkah, which is the tent structure that the Israelites used for shelter during their 40 years of traveling in the desert after their freedom from slavery in Egypt.

World Water Monitoring Day
– This is a day to be aware of where our precious water supply comes from and what is going into it. Find the water supply nearest to you and take a water sample. You can either take it to a local water testing facility or mail it to a facility if you don't have one close by. Share your information with the world by joining the World Water Monitoring Challenge.

To celebrate today, go find a stream or creek or pond and get a water sample. Send it off to be tested while you head to your chiropractor to wish him/her a Happy Founders Day. Keep an eye out for an Air Force plane flying overhead so you can salute it and wish the Air Force a Happy Birthday. Next, head to a restaurant for a cheeseburger lunch. While you are there, make sure you talk to all the other patrons and employees and ask them if they write greeting cards. If they do, give them a hug. If they do not, make sure they are aware of ADD and HIV/AIDS issues. At sundown, stop working and think about how frustrating it was for the Israelites to wander around in the wilderness for 40 years.
