Today we celebrate:

National Pina Colada Day – Coconut, pineapple and rum...a delicious combination. Indulge yourself with one of these today assuming you are at least 21 years old and don’t have to drive anywhere.

National Clerihew Day – Edmund Clerihew Bentley, born on this day in 1875, was a journalist and the author of a detective novel, Trent's Last Case. He is best known for a verse he created in a form that is now known as the Clerihew. It consists of two rhyming couplets of differing lengths:
Edmund's middle name was Clerihew
A name possessed by very few,
But verses by Mr. Bentley
Succeeded eminently.

Teddy Bears' Picnic Day – This is a day to have a picnic with your teddy bear. Feel free to borrow one from your kids but better yet, make this a family event and bring all the kids and all of their teddy bears. I bet even the older kids will enjoy a fun family day like this.

Collector Car Appreciation Day – This is the fourth annual celebration of this day which is scheduled for the second Friday in July. This day was begun by a U.S. Senate resolution sponsored by Senators Jon Tester and Richard Burr. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of automotive restoration and collection, at least to automotive restorers and collectors and possibly to many more people in this country whom I do not know.

To celebrate today, drive your collection worthy car and take your teddy bear for a picnic where you can write a Clerihew while you drink a refreshing pina colada.
