Item 4 listed above has just shocked the normally unshockable Mrs Nye, on the basis that it's blatantly gingerist.

I managed the hot tea.  And i haven't broken any resolutions since I didn't make any.  Two out of nine isn't so great though.  I could have done the curried chicken at lunchtime, if only I had known.

^ The norm in English schools is to spell him as C-n-u-t. A school-teacher friend set each child in his class the task of mocking up a newspaper front page featuring a historic event, little expecting that a dyslexic boy would attempt the headline C-n-u-t Repels Waves."

Damn it, I have missed the chance to celebrate Dress Up Your Pet Day with a hot pastrami sandwich.  Not that such a delicacy is available round these parts of the UK.  Cold pastrami, yes, we can do that, but hot?  

 

Bob, your mission is to keep this up for the rest of the year.

2023 Daily Holidays that fall on January 15, include:

  • Makar Sanranti

Makar Sankranti falls on January 14 or January 15 in certain years. Makar Sankranti is the very first major festival to be celebrated in India and is one of the universally celebrated Hindu festivals. Unlike other Hindu festivals — which follow the lunar calendar — Makar Sankranti follows the solar calendar and thus falls on the same day each year. This festival signals the end of winter and the beginning of the harvest, and is even observed outside India — in Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Cambodia, and Burma.

 

  • Hat Day 
  • National Bagel Day 
  • National Booch Day 
  • National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day 
  • Strawberry Ice Cream Day 

Merry Ninth Day of Christmas, only 3 more to go.

The liberal news sources reported what they wanted to ; it is gone where politicians could gain from it;  where no such gain could be made the status quo remains.

 

Robert Byrd (Cornelius Calvin Sale Jr) was a leading Democrat Seantor and has buildings named after him; he was also former head of the KKK and no one has said squat about changig the names of the buildings.

  • Peking Duck Day

A friend sent me this last week:

 

>Today's post from my local online community crime page...

People post things all the time on our local community crime online network to warn others:

 

So I got Chinese take-out last night and as I got in the car I heard the bag rustle, so looked over and saw a pair of eyes looking out of the top of bag at me, then disappear back inside.

I was so scared. I nearly said a few profanities!

I looked again, saw the eyes looking out at me then disappear again, so of course I grabbed the bag and ran back into the restaurant.

I asked the guy behind the counter, “What the heck was going on?!”

He said, "You asked for the Peking duck…”

 

What would you do in this scenario?<

At a guess state legislatures demonstrated their contempt for the yankees by proclaiming that Robert E Lee day is to take place on the same day as the national Martin Luther King day.

The other way around.

 Texas made "Lee Day" a holiday in 1931. In 1973, "Lee Day" was renamed Confederate Heroes Day. Florida Statute 683.01(d) marks January 19 as Robert E. Lee Day, although no offices or schools close down for it.

Alabama and Mississippi observe both MLK and RE Lee days on the third Monday in January. The timing of their state holiday was changed in 1985, 2 years after MLK day became a national holiday. The following is from Wikipedia but is consistent with many US sites. 

 

"Robert E. Lee Day is a state holiday in parts of the Southern US, commemorating the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.[1]

January 19 was marked by the governor of Tennessee as Robert E. Lee Day in 2013.[2][3]

Texas made "Lee Day" a holiday in 1931.[4] In 1973, "Lee Day" was renamed Confederate Heroes Day.[5]

Florida Statute 683.01(d) marks January 19 as Robert E. Lee Day, although no offices or schools close down for it.[6]

Alabama[7] and Mississippi[8][9] observe it on the third Monday in January, in order to split the date with the federal holiday Martin Luther King Jr. Day.[10]

Arkansas combined the observance of Robert E. Lee Day with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in 1985, after two years of requiring state employees to select between the two holidays or their own birthday as a day off from work.[11] In 2017, it passed a law removing General Lee's name from the January holiday and instead establishing a state memorial day on the second Saturday of October in honor of Lee.[12] In 2000 Virginia experimented with splitting Lee–Jackson–King Day into a separate Lee–Jackson Day on the Friday before Martin Luther King Jr. Day, dropping the former in 2020. Georgia formerly called the Friday after Thanksgiving Robert E. Lee Day; now it is only an unnamed paid holiday.[13]"

HM's love of guinea pigs came only second to her love of corgi dogs  (who knew Corgi made models of dogs?).

 

They are a great delicacy in the Andean area, served roasted as cuy.  My second in command at work had that during a trip to Peru and she reckoned it was still repeating on her when she got back to London.

We do have Burns Night on Wednesday, perhaps the most traditional and international celebration despite it's humble beginnings in Scotland. We have a freshly shot haggis reading for cooking and will be enjoying a dram or two!

Lotus 1-2-3 Day, now that's rekindles memories of a sheet too big to be saved on a floppy disc. I suddenly feel ancient.

Would it make you feel younger again to know that half the TNFers were probably thinking it was a reference to a race at Goodwood in 1964?
