Today we celebrate:

National Boston Cream Pie Day – I'm not sure why it's called pie when it is really much more like a cake with cream filling. It is one of my all time favorite cakes. Now I'm drooling...very undignified of me, sorry.

Pod Day – On this day in 2001, the first iPod was introduced to the world. A pivotal moment in the technological and musical world. 

Medical Assistants Recognition Day –
Celebrated on the Wednesday of the third full week in October, this is a day to recognize the hard work that medical assistants perform every day. 

National Mole Day –
This day is celebrated every year on this day between 6:02am and 6:02pm. It is a basic measuring unit in chemistry, 6.02 x 1023 , also known as Avogadro's Number. This day is an attempt to spread interest in chemistry throughout the world. If you're interested, a mole is equal to the atomic mass of a molecule. There is more to that explanation here: 

Swallows Depart from San Juan Capistrano Day – On this day, according to the mental calendar that all swallows have in their heads, the swallows will circle the Mission San Juan Capistano in California and fly off to wherever they go for the winter. They will return in March.

TV Talk Show Host Day –
This day, which just happens to be Johnny Carson's birthday, is a day to celebrate all talk show hosts. Johnny Carson is the most beloved of them all, followed closely by Oprah Winfrey, but there have been many and will be many more since I don't think talk show's are going away any time soon.

National Canning Day – This is a day to can all the harvest from your gardens. I don't have very much left from my garden and I haven't the slightest idea how to can anything, but if you have the skills and the equipment and the vegetables, have at it.

To celebrate today, watch a talk show, calculate how many moles are in your body, visit a medical assistant when your brain starts to hurt from all that calculating and can some tomatoes from your garden while listening to your iPod and eating Boston Cream Pie. Then say goodbye to the swallows.  Don't worry, they'll be back.
