Today we celebrate:

Clean Out Your Computer Day – This day is always celebrated on the second Monday in February for reasons that escape me. It was started in 2000 by the Institute for Business Technology. It's going to be a big job so you better get started. When you're done, you will probably notice that your computer works faster.

Plimsoll Day – Samuel Plimsoll was born on this day in 1824 in Bristol, England. He was a British politician, but is mostly known for devising the Plimsoll Line. It's a line drawn on a ship that indicates the maximum load a ship can bear. Once it's loaded so that the line is at the water's edge, the ship is full.

National Cream Cheese Brownie Day – Oh boy, who can resist rich, fudgey chocolate mixed with cream cheese.

Umbrella Day – Umbrellas (or parasols as they used to be called in upper class circles) can be used to shield you from rain or snow, or shade you from the heat of the sun and the dangers of UV rays. You can get them in just about any size from tiny ones that fit in your purse to humongous ones like beach or table umbrellas.

To celebrate today, clean out your computer of old files, then take your umbrella to the ocean to look for plimsoll lines on the ships that pass by while you eat your cream cheese brownies.
