Today we celebrate:

National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day – Oatmeal is healthy, isn't it? That's what I tell myself anyway as I'm munching on these delicious cookies.

Goddess Of Fertility Day – Celebrated before the Spring Equinox, this is a day for women who wish to conceive a baby to plead their case to Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and fertility, by giving her offerings. I'm not too sure what she would find acceptable in the way of an offering, so don't ask me.

Biodiesel Day – Born on this day in 1858, Rudolf Diesel invented the diesel engine. He planned to use vegetable oil to fuel his engine and did a lot of work in the biofuel arena. In fact, when he demonstrated his diesel engine at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, he ran it on peanut oil.

Awkward Moments Day – We've all had at least one awkward moment in our lives, most of us have had many. Some of us have had many of them. Celebrate them today and maybe laugh at yourself a little now that you've had some time to get over the embarrassment. It's time to acknowledge the humor in the situation.

Supreme Sacrifice Day – This is a day that honors those who have made great sacrifices for others, maybe even for you. There have been many in our lifetime, many more if you go back further in time. Soldiers, firemen and women, policemen and women, neighbors and friends and even total strangers. Some you cannot find today because their sacrifice involved giving up their lives. But we can remember them and make sure that their sacrifices on our behalf were not in vain.

Forgive Mom And Dad Day – This is a day for everyone to realize that children do not come with instruction manuals and we all make mistakes. As parents, all any of us can do is make the best decisions we can with the information we have available to us. For example, if your parents smoked in the house when you were a kid, before the effects of secondhand smoke were known to cause health problems with kids, forgive them because they probably would never have done it if they knew it would hurt you.

To celebrate today, make a supreme sacrifice for your children by telling them all of your more painful awkward moments from when you were young. Then call your parents and forgive them for any mistakes they may have made while raising you. Finally, hop into your biodiesel powered automobile and take some lacy oatmeal cookies for an offering for Aphrodite (not sure where you will find an altar for her, maybe just throw them in the ocean.) so that maybe you'll have a chance of having a baby.
