Today we celebrate:

National Linguine Day - A long, flat and narrow pasta, it’s not my favorite but maybe that has more to do with the sauce it’s in because this is the pasta that is used most of the time for fettuccine alfredo and I prefer a good old homemade spaghetti sauce.

Someday - You know when you think of something that needs to be done and you think that you’ll get to it “someday”?  Well, today is Someday, and it’s time to follow through. 

Take A Loved One To The Doctor Day - This is a day to take care of the ones you love by making sure they are healthy.  Take them to the doctor for a checkup so if there are any problems that need to be taken care of, you will know about them.  This includes all doctors and all aspects of health, even your teeth which far too many people think far too little about.  This day is celebrated on the third Tuesday of September.

National Thank You Day - This is a day to show appreciation to everyone who has made any kind of positive impact in your life.  Show the people who love you that you are thankful for everything they do for you in the best way possible….tell them.

National Caregivers Day - This is a day to give support to someone who is a caregiver for someone else.  Call them up to see what they need.  Maybe you can take over their responsibilities for a while so they can have a break, or maybe you can fix them a meal so they can have a more relaxing evening.  Everyone’s needs are different so see what you can do to help.

Felt Hat Day – There was a time when anyone who was anyone had a felt hat. They are not so easy to find these days so if you find one, wear it today.

Make A Hat Day – This is a day to make your own hat of your own special design. The only catch is...after you make it, you have to wear it.

National Creme de Menthe Day – A sweet, minty alcoholic beverage. Day – On this day in 1997, Google registered it's domain name. And the rest is history.

Greenpeace Day – Founded on this day in 1971, Greenpeace has become the largest, independent environmental organization in the world. It was begun in Vancouver but has spread to 2.9 million members in over 41 countries.

International Day of Democracy – Created by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, this is a day to uphold the principles of democracy and to spread awareness of the benefits of a government and culture based on the will of the people.

International Dot DayThis is a day to connect the dots. The dots are people and we need to connect people all over the world to involve each of us in creative and celebratory activities designed to make the world a better place.

To celebrate today, make yourself a felt hat to wear. Next, call anyone you know who doesn't live in a democratic country (watch those time zone differences) and tell them all of the benefits they would have if they did live in such a country. While you have them on the phone, use Google to help you figure out a creative endeavor you could participate in together. Next, visit a caregiver you know, thank them for all that they do and see what you can do to help them.  Then get all your “someday” activities done before you take your loved ones to their doctors for a checkup.  Then have a recycling party during which you can serve Creme de Menthe and linguine.
