Today we celebrate:

Simcoe Day - This day honors John Graves Simcoe, Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada (now Ontario) in the 1790s. Mr. Simcoe is credited with superb planning and design work in setting the layout of the Ontario area that works very well for them even to this day.

National Chocolate Chips Day - This is a day to celebrate the little chocolatey morsels that we add to our baked goods to add a sweet chocolate flavor to chocolate chip cookies or brownies or pancakes or muffins or….well, I could go on and on.  I confess that sometimes I eat them all by themselves.

U.S. Coast Guard Day – This is a day to commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard on this day in 1790 by the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Back then it was called the Revenue Marine.

Single Working Women's Day – This is a day to honor the single working women of the world. They have to find the time to do everything themselves. Name a job around the house and the single working woman has to do it on top of working for a living so she has money to do all the things that have to be done and possibly take care of a family as well.

National White Wine Day - Created by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway to celebrate the rich and very long history of white wines.  People have been drinking wine for thousands of years, it’s even recorded in the Bible.  So if you are 21 years of age or older, feel free to choose from the wide variety of white wines available, I know you’ll find one to your liking.

National Night Out - Celebrated on the first Tuesday in August, this is a day to keep the crime out of your neighborhood. It was begun in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a non-profit that supports several different crime prevention programs, as an effort to promote citizen involvement in keeping the criminals out of our neighborhoods.

To celebrate today, gather up the single working women you know and share some white wine and a dessert containing chocolate chips.  Tell your friends about John Simcoe before you call up the Coast Guard and wish them a Happy Birthday.  Then you should all head out to make sure your neighborhood is safe for another night.
