I am still feeling Blue today so this will be another very short post.

I am feeling blue because the first anniversary of my first heart attack is coming up soon and I am still recovering from my first and second heart attacks. I have not regained my old energy or fitness level, I get tired easily now and I am still unable to run again. When I was younger, I thought I could continue to be an Endurance Athlete until well into my 70s at least. But I am only 39 years old and have to give up running after surviving two heart attacks. :(

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

Yay Texas, it is Saturday Breakfast Time again! Today we will be going healthy with a Rooty Toot Toot Fresh & Fruity Breakfast Saturday! Yay! Fruit! Lots of peeps love fruit. We would say everybody, but we are not a big fan, but that is another story. To start things off right, you cannot have a respectable fruity breakfast without Rooty Tooty Fresh & Fruity Pancakes! These bad boys start as a full stack of super-fluffy buttermilk pancakes loaded with the fruit of your choice and topped with a scrumptious sauce of the same fruit or a different one altogether for some super-freak breakfast! Fillings include apples, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, bananas or even funky nanbanas. Toppings include your choice of strawberry compote, cherry delight, chunky blueberry sauce or sautéed cinnamon apples. To go hog-wild, order the kitchen sink for a fruitilicious explosion of color and flavor! If pancakes do not grab you, you can substitute for French Toast made with genuine Texas Toast this morning. There will also be the yummy Strawberry Melon Salad with watermelon balls, cantaloupe balls, strawberry balls, and top it off with honey, lemon or mint yogurt or all three. Woo! The Chef is definitely on a tear today as he will whip you up a fresh Honey Lime Fruit Salad complete with pineapple chunks, mandarin orange chunks, strawberries, sliced bananas, and sliced kiwis tossed in a honey-lime dressing! Oh Man, is that is that Fresh & Fruity enough for you? We are getting woozy just thinking about it! Just when you thought it could not get any better and, to top it all off, we have the Super Juice Bar! We will have icy-cold running Orange, Grapefruit, Mango, Tomato, Carrot, Pink Guava, Apple and Papaya juices. If that doesn't float your boat, go exotic with the following selections - Honeydew Melon, Rock Melon, Water Melon, Papaya, Strawberry and Kiwi. Juicers Gone Wild! Simply a mind-boggling array of Juice, Glorious Juice! It is all good! Of course, The Never Ending Urn of Coffee is full and ready to go as well. So come on down, start your day off the right way, munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

***** Texas Shout Outs *****

@ Fort Verden - Verner! Buddy! Snap out of it! Carpe Deim. It is time to make hay while the sun shines. Let's go, we got all the fruit you could ever want. Just because you cannot exercise your body the way you want doesn't mean you cannot exercise that noggin of yours. If you applied just a fraction of the effort you put into your physical routines into mental routines, you could become the next Brainiac! Woo, now that is a scary thought. Ten-Hut, Verner!

Song - Songs? Oh yes indeed. We can sing many songs. Nyah ha ha ha! :)

Thank you Buddy. :)

Kiss A Ginger Day

Red hair has always been unique and striking to all of us. While many redheads are unfortunately subject to jokes and mockery, we all love their fiery tresses. January 12 is Kiss A Ginger Day and it’s the perfect opportunity to show them our love. At some point, we all wish we had red hair ourselves, but as it occurs in only 2% of the population, we go for hair dyes to get the color. Many believe red hair is and has always been an Irish, British, and European trait, but that isn’t the case. Ancient accounts and archaeological discoveries indicate red hair existed in Greece and Asia. Today the trait is most prevalent in north western Europe. Red hair is slowly disappearing around the world, so kiss a ginger while you still can!

Kiss a Ginger Day Activities

Kiss a ginger!
If you are lucky enough to have a special someone in your life who rocks red locks – give ‘em a kiss! Or two. Or more, just don’t get chapped lips. And please, make sure you have consent before smooching. Hell hath no fury like a ginger kissed without consent.

Do something nice for a red-head you love
You can do so much more than just give a kiss (get your head out of the gutter!) and there may be redheads in your life you don’t particularly want to kiss in the first place (sorry family members). Make a point to do something nice for them. It can be a simple as sending flowers or cooking them a meal. It can be a big surprise like a weekend trip or some jewelry. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you let them know how much they mean to you!

Enjoy movies and music by famous gingers
So many of the celebrities and artists we love are gingers. Take the time to enjoy their works on National Sticker day! Listen to the music of Ed Sheeran or Florence Welch of Florence & The Machine. Watch a movie or TV show featuring your favorite redhead, such as Lindsay Lohan, Amy Adams, or Christina Hendricks. Enjoy the the films, music, and art that gingers have blessed us with!

Why We Love Kiss a Ginger Day

Redheads don’t go grey!
Gingers, you lucky ducks! Red hair holds it’s pigment longer than other shades. When it does fade, it becomes a silvery-white, not grey or dull. So redheads, if you ever find yourself wishing you had different colored tresses, remember that not only are you envied for your hair now, but that jealousy will only continue to grow as we all get older and your hair still looks amazing!

They’re rare
Redheads seem to be far less common than blonde, brunette, and black hair. That’s because the gene which causes fiery locks is recessive, meaning you would need the gene from both parents for a child to have red hair. Today, people travel more than ever. We marry outside out local communities and move all over the world. This means gingers have become rarer than ever before and the percentage of people with red hair continues to decrease. Redheads are unique and we admire their striking hair, as it continues to stand out more and more.

They inspire great art and fun stories
The striking color of red hair is something artists can’t resist. Gingers can be seen in works of art such as Sandro Botticelli’s, “The Birth of Venus”, Edvard Munch’s, “Lady From The Sea”, Mary Cassatt’s, “Maternal Kiss”, and Gustav Klimt’s, “Danae”. Don’t forget the redheads from our childhood! Ariel, Merida, Annie – all gingers with fun stories. We send a big thank you to all gingers for inspiring the art and films we love so much!

National Pharmacist Day

Children can get up to 12 colds a year, while adults average two to four. Where would we be without our pharmacists? It’s time to thank those friendly workers who keep us healthy throughout the year. Get ready to celebrate National Pharmacist Day on January 12. The day focuses on the importance of pharmacists, and it honors how much they impact our health and well-being. The #APharmacistIs campaign, launched just two years ago, links both photos (and words of thanks) to those who help us with our meds and so much more.

National Pharmacist Day timeline

May 8, 1963
America's largest drug store made its debut

CVS, the largest pharmacy in the U.S., employing 24,000 pharmacists, opened.

Sept. 28, 1928
The breakthrough antibiotic

Scottish scientist Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin.

754 AD
Ancient medicine

The first pharmacies were established, in Baghdad, during the Islamic Golden Age.

How to Observe National Pharmacist Day

Thank a pharmacist in person
During your next visit, be sure to thank your pharmacist for always being so reliable and helpful.

Share some words
Visit Twitter to post your thanks online. Be sure to use #NationalPharmacistDay.

Post a photo
Get online and share an image with the hashtag #APharmacistIs. Then click the hashtag to see the full portrait of pharmacists we create.

The 5 Most Commonly Prescribed Drugs In The U.S.

Vicodin
Treats your acute to severe pain.

Simvastatin
It's the generic Zocor and helps with high cholesterol.

Lisinopril
This generic Prinivil or Zestril helps prevent kidney failure, while treating congestive heart failure and high blood pressure.

Levothyroxine
The generic Synthroid treats hypothyroidism.

Azithromycin
This generic Z-PAK keeps us healthy during cold and flu season, treating ear, throat, and sinus infections.

Why National Pharmacist Day is Important
It honors more than 300,000 employees

There were approximately 316,500 pharmacists in the United States as of 2016. The profession continues to grow, up from less than 224,000 just 15 years prior.

The profession is vital to our economy
We need pharmacists to keep us healthy, which keeps businesses moving. American employers pay more than $260 billion each year for health-related work loss.

They do much more than dispense medication
Pharmacists can give us health advice and tips, including how to take multiple medications. They know about drug therapy effectiveness and can teach us about medical devices we use at home.

Vincent's Sunday Surprise Beverage Bonanza

Howdy Dudes and Dudettes of Texas!

We’re gonna start off with 1 ½ cups of vanilla yogurt and add ½ a cup of whole/full cream milk and blend in some fruits that’s been frozen and are ready to be turned into your Yogurt shakes.

National Clean Your Desk Day

National Clean Your Desk Day’s all about preparing your workspace for the new year and beginning things on the right note. The holiday falls on the second Monday in January. This year, it’s January 13. Remember, a messy desk is an invitation to chaos! A clean desk, on the other hand, helps you focus, be more productive, and generally makes you feel good about your workspace. And when we say clean we don’t just mean physical clutter. That’s correct, your computer desktop counts too. Drag those files into a nice, neat folder!

National Clean Your Desk Day timeline

2009
The first office chair race

Say goodbye to the junk

A cluttered desk creates anxiety. And that doesn't help when you're in the midst of a busy workday.

Make it an event
Involve your colleagues. Have a "cleanest desk" competition. Post pictures of your desk on social media.

5 Stunning Facts About Offices

The typewriter changed the desk
Once the typewriter was invented, the design of the desk evolved — because the rolltop design no longer worked.

Darwin put wheels on the chair
Charles Darwin revolutionized the office chair by adding wheels. This helped him get to his specimens quicker while in his study.

Clean that keyboard
There are 16 million microbes on a typical office keyboard. Yikes!

Everyone loses things
The average office employee spends six weeks per year looking for something.

How clean is your office?
Only 3 percent of offices clean their equipment regularly.

Why We Love National Clean Your Desk Day

National Gluten-Free Day

Did you know that there is a sleuth among us? A sly protein hides in your kitchen, acting as the binding agent in many foods and beverages you consume on a daily basis. Many of us take it for granted and know nothing of its presence, while 2.5 million people in the U.S. battle against it. Can you guess what it is? Gluten — a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that those with a gluten intolerance spend their lives avoiding. On January 13, we observe National Gluten-Free Day alongside our gluten-free friends!

National Gluten-Free Day timeline

2010s
Gluten-free numbers rise

An estimated 2.5 million U.S. citizens are diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

2005
Gluten-free trend began

In addition to those diagnosed with Celiac Disease, people with gluten intolerance, and those choosing to eat gluten-free, create a surge in the gluten-free trend.

1950s
Celiac Disease identified

Only .01 percent of the global population was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

1820
Industrial farming boom began

Wheat became a high-yield crop.

9000 BC
Wheat was born

First agricultural cultivation in the Fertile Crescent.

How to Observe National Gluten-Free Day

Invite a friend to eat
If you have a gluten-free friend, call them up and invite them on a gluten-free lunch date. Let them teach you about the menu, and if you’re brave, allow them to order you a gluten-free meal. Are YOU the gluten-free friend? Invite your besties out for lunch and educate them on your menu options.

Make a gluten-free recipe
Try your hand at gluten-free cooking. Find a delicious, intriguing, gluten-free recipe from the internet and go to town! Up for a challenge? Try baking from scratch with rice or almond flour.

Share the love
If you don’t share it on social media, it never happened, right? Be sure to post pictures of your gluten-free meal and baked goods for all your friends to see and try. The more people understand, the more awareness we have!

5 Things To Remember About Celiac Disease
It is not an allergy

It’s a common misconception that those with Celiac are allergic to gluten.

It is autoimmune
Those diagnosed with Celiac Disease suffer damage to the lower intestine if they ingest gluten.

Celiac for life
There is no cure or prevention, but following a gluten-free diet is the way of life!

Gluten hides everywhere
From beer to soy sauce, gluten is in far more items than the bread products lining the shelves of your local bakery.

Celiac leads to other issues
If undiagnosed, this autoimmune disease can lead to other issues, such as lactose intolerance, anemia, and GI cancers.

Why National Gluten-Free Day is Important
We get to clean up our diets and make our digestive system smile

While gluten is a protein found in many foods, it's not necessarily healthy for our systems. People who have the autoimmune disorder known as Celiac Disease understand this best of all, as ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. Understanding the plight of the Celiac sufferer or gluten-intolerant friend is one of the perks of celebrating and recognizing this day. The more educated we are, the better we understand those that live the gluten-free lifestyle!

We get to broaden our horizons
Have you ever tried baking with almond flour or spiralizing your own noodles from a vegetable? Ever sampled a gluten-free bakery? Today is the day to experience new things!

We find the joy in little things
Donuts, pastries, and bread…oh my! Imagine them all taken away in the blink of an eye. For those with a gluten-free lifestyle, we celebrate how the trend has spread to many restaurants now offering gluten-free menus. For those that can indulge in copious amounts of gluten, we are reminded to find the joy in the little things that we easily take for granted.

Your Buddy Verner

Went to an Orchestra performance on Sunday. They opened with a drum roll and then the National Anthem. Most everyone stood and joined in the singing. Apparently it's a somewhat common occurrence across the Country. I stood up because everyone around me did, once the music started I realized why they stood.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

It’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day on January 14, and we want you go to all out. Celebrate by dressing up your furry family member in comfortable pet clothing — maybe even get matching outfits, if you want to get crazy. If it were any normal day, people would be staring at you at your dog in the street. However, on National Dress Up Your Pet Day, matching outfits are not only accepted, but also encouraged! Who’s the angel responsible for this holiday? National Dress Up Your Pet Day was started in 2009 by celebrity pet lifestyle expert and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige. It celebrates pets and helps to support the pet fashion community. The chance only comes once a year to wow the neighbors and to unleash the inner diva of your favorite pooch, so make sure your dog is dressed for the occasion!

National Dress Up Your Pet Day Activities

Have a friend take photos of you and your pet’s new outfits
Did you even dress up your dog if you didn’t take a picture of it? You need to commemorate you and your dog looking styling! Have a mini-photoshoot, and upload the pictures to your social media. Or, if your friends aren’t nice enough to indulge you, take a selfie, or 3, or 10. Either way, the moment is captured.

Use #DressUpYourPetDay on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
In case you live under a rock, we have a memo for you: the internet is extremely creative! Search this hashtag to see how other dog owners have dressed up their dogs in the past. You’ll get inspired immediately. And who knows? You might start some friendly competition! We believe in you; you’ll win!

If you have kids, but no pets, dress them up instead.
The FOMO doesn’t have to be real. If you don’t have pets, you can dress up your children instead! And if you really want to stick with the theme, you can grab a friend’s dog and go wild. I’m sure your friends wouldn’t mind you babysitting their dogs for a couple hours!

Why We Love National Dress Up Your Pet Day

Clothes can reveal your pet’s personality
People dress up to show off their personality. So why shouldn’t your pet do the same? Whether your dog is flirtatious, tough, smart or sassy, she deserves an outfit that matches her persona. Your diva dog can get a pink, bedazzled sweatshirt. Your tough dog can get a doggy crew neck sweater. The options are endless, and we want you to try them all! (And we’re sure your dog does too.)

Celebrating holidays is more fun with your pet
Even something as silly as spending a day dressing up your pet is quality time, and your pet relishes it. Sorry, did we say silly? We meant amazing. Your pet will love that you’re spending time together, and your friends will love that you posted it on the ‘Gram. Facebook and Instagram likes, here you come! Your picture might even impress that cute guy or girl you’ve been eyeing.

It’s probably cold outside anyway
It’s still January, which means that many places are experiencing cold weather right now. And remember: dogs get cold too! Just as you’re not supposed to walk your dog when it’s too hot, you need to put a sweater on your dog when it’s too cold. So protect your dog from the winter elements by showing some National Dress Up Your Dog Day pride. Treat your fur-baby with that extra layer of warmth, and make sure it is comfortable for them to walk around in!

National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day

There’s nothing like the smokey goodness of the Pastrami sandwich. Long considered an icon of the classic Jewish New York deli, this delicious gift has made it out of the boroughs to delis around the world. Lucky you! National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day is January 14, and our mouths are watering just thinking about how we’re going to celebrate.

National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day timeline

1989
Harry Meets Sally

The pastrami on rye at Katz Delicatessen comes into the national spotlight with the hit comedy When Harry Meets Sally.

The 1930's
Deli Take Over

New York experiences a peak of about 1,500 Jewish delicatessens as a results of its growing population.

1888
Pastrami Meets Rye

Volk starts serving pastrami on rye bread. New York classic Katz Delicatessen is also established.

The 1880's
Pastrami is Served

Lithuanian Immigrant Sussman Volk began selling pastrami from his butcher shop on the Lower East Side.

National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day Activities

Throw a Pastrama party
Of course, you could have your friends over to devour some delicious pastrami sandwiches, but would that be different from any other day? Host a pastrama party — that’s right, a party where you eat pastramis in your pajamas. Take it the experience to the next level by screening the ultimate film that honors our beloved sandwich: When Harry Met Sally. You’ve heard of “the diner scene.” That scene takes place in New York’s famous Katz’s Delicatessen. I’ll have what she’s having — a pastrami on rye!

Go out for lunch
There’s truly no better way to celebrate National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day than experiencing the food itself. Search for delis in your area that serve this classic dish!

Give the gift of a sandwich
Portable and packed with protein, a hot pastrami sandwich makes a great meal, especially on a cold day. Order a second sandwich and give it to someone in need on your way home.

Why We Love National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day
No other sandwich compares

Rye bread, mustard, and beef. These core ingredients form a unique smokey flavor incomparable to other any sandwich. It’s no wonder the recipe has remained unchanged since hot pastrami sandwiches became popular — all the way back in the late 1800’s!

It’s a cultural icon
The hot pastrami sandwich is the Jewish New York Deli scene, embodied. Some people even consider it to be New York’s signature sandwich! With every bite, you’re getting a taste of American Jewish culture.

It warms the soul
A good hot pastrami sandwich involves curing, rubbing, smoking, boiling, AND steaming the meat to give it that signature smokey twang. When you eat a hot pastrami sandwich, you’re not just enjoying the warmth of the flavor, you’re enjoying the long labor of love that put it on your plate.

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday

What is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday?

On January 15, we celebrate the birthday of civil right’s leader, Martin Luther King. When we hear his name, we most often think of his legendary “I Have A Dream” speech, the civil rights movement, and, sadly, his assassination. When we celebrate his birthday, let’s take a few moments to look into the personal story of the man himself.
History of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia to Reverend Martin Luther King, Sr. and Alberta Williams King. King’s given name at birth was Michael King, which was also his father’s original name, but after a period of gradual transitioning by the elder King, he changed both his and his son’s names in 1934.

King was a middle child, between older sister Christine King Farris and younger brother A.D. King. He sang with his church choir at the 1939 Atlanta premiere of the film “Gone with the Wind” and enjoyed singing and music. When King was a child, he befriended a white boy whose father owned a business near his family’s home. When the boys were six, they started school: King attended one for African Americans and his friend went to one specifically for white children. Their friendship ended because the boy’s father didn’t want his son playing with a black child.

In 1955, Dr. King received his Ph.D. in systematic theology at Boston University, with a dissertation titled “A Comparison of the Conceptions of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and Henry Nelson Wieman.” While pursuing his doctoral studies, King worked as an assistant minister at Boston’s historic Twelfth Baptist Church with Reverend William Hunter Hester, who was an old friend of King’s father and a huge influence on the young man. Also in 1955, Claudette Colvin, a fifteen year-old black schoolgirl in Montgomery, and a few months later Rosa Parks both refused to give up their seats on busses to white men. This lead to the Montgomery bus boycott, urged and planned by Edgar Daniel Nixon and led by King. His role in the bus boycott transformed him into a national figure and the best-known spokesman of the civil rights movement.

Martin Luther King's Birthday timeline

1983
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is officially a holiday

President Reagan signed the holiday into law, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

April 4, 1968
Assassination

King never stopped spreading his message of non-violent protest against racial injustice. But there were also people who wanted him silenced. King was attacked more than once during public appearances, as well as arrested during demonstrations. An assassin's bullet fatally wounded King as he stood on a Memphis hotel balcony in 1968.

December 1, 1955
A pivotal moment for civil rights

Rosa Parks was arrested after refusing to move to the back of a Montgomery city bus. That night, E.D. Nixon, head of the local chapter of NAACP, met with King and other local civil rights leaders, who elected King to lead a citywide bus boycott. In his first rallying speech as the group’s president, he displayed a natural gift for inspirational rhetoric that would continue to grow stronger in the future.

Mid-20th Century
Questions, decisions, education, marriage

Despite the strong role model of his minister father, King. began questioning religion during his early teenage years. However, when he was a junior in high school, he took a Bible class which influenced him to renew his religious beliefs, and began to envision life as a minister. After graduating from Morehouse College in 1948 and attending Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, King was working on his doctoral studies at Boston University when he met Coretta Scott. They married in 1953, and by 1955, when King earned his Ph.D, he was already pastor of a Baptist church in Montgomery, Alabama. He was just 25 years old.

January 15, 1929
A future civil rights leader was born

Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta, the middle child of parents who both had deep roots in rural Georgia. His father, who became a successful minister, changed his name to Martin Luther King to honor the German Protestant religious leader Martin Luther.

Martin Luther King Jr. Statistics

29 Arrests
According to the King Center, the civil rights leader went to jail 29 times. He was arrested for acts of civil disobedience and on trumped-up charges, such as when he was jailed in Montgomery, Alabama in 1956 for driving 30 miles per hour in a 25mph zone.

15 years old
Martin was a smart child, so smart that he skipped the 9th and 12th grade before enrolling at Moorehouse College in 1944, the alma mater of his father and maternal grandfather. King originally did not intend to follow the family vocation of becoming a preacher until the Morehouse president convinced him otherwise. He was ordained before graduation.

3 Grammy nominations
When you think Dr. King, you probably don’t think Grammy award winner and chart topper, but the affluent speaker released albums of his sermons and speeches, receiving 3 Grammy nominations and winning the award posthumously in 1971.
Martin Luther King's Birthday FAQs

When was the first MLK Day?
The first MLK Day was celebrated on the third Monday of January — January 17 — in 1983.

Is January 21 Martin Luther King's birthday?
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is January 15, however, we celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the third Monday of January, which sometimes lands on the 21.

How to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday

Celebrate diversity over dinner
To honor Martin Luther King, Jr.'s emphasis on diversity, plan a dinner party where foods from many different ethnic origins are served. A sample menu could include a French crudité platter as an appetizer, bobotie (a kind of fancy meatloaf) from South Africa for the main dish, Moroccan cous-cous as the salad course, followed by the truffle-like brigadeiros from Brazil for dessert, served with Turkish coffee. Extra credit: set up an international music playlist to accompany your feast.

Participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
The MLK Day of Service is part of United We Serve, the national call-to-service initiative. Find a local project and volunteer; this could be helping to clean up a local park, delivering meals to house-bound people, or collecting food for a homeless shelter.

Revisit the "I Have A Dream" speech
One of the most profound ways to experience Martin Luther King, Jr.'s most memorable speech is to read it aloud, even if you're alone; hearing the words as you're saying them redoubles the impact of this impassioned, timeless message of hope and healing.

MLK Day: 5 Steps To A National Holiday

The campaign for a new national holiday began
Although the campaign for a federal holiday in Martin Luther King Jr.'s honor began soon after his assassination, it would not be officially observed in all 50 states until 2000.

The first bill was defeated in the House
The bill first came to a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1979, but the result was five votes short of the number needed for passage.

The campaign heated up with celebrity support
After the King Center sought support from the corporate community and the general public, musician Stevie Wonder released the single "Happy Birthday" to popularize the campaign in 1980.

Some states delayed holiday name changes
In New Hampshire, for example, the holiday known as Civil Rights Day was not changed to Martin Luther King Day until 1999, when the State Legislature voted to change the name.

The final state made MLK Day official
In 2000, Utah became the last state to have a holiday named after King, by officially changing Human Rights Day to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Why Martin Luther King's Birthday is Important

He had a dream
More than just a speech, Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream that he hoped would someday become a reality. He pushed to end segregation and hoped to create a world where people were seen as people, not as the skin color they were born with.

He inspired a nation
King wouldn't be able to change the world on his own, but his words ignited the spark inside the hearts of every activist at the time waiting for the right moment to make a difference. As a leader, he inspired countless people to fight for equality around the nation.

We wouldn't know some of our best friends without him
Odds are, you have a pretty diverse friend group made up of people from different religions, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Without the efforts of Dr. King and people like him, you would never have gotten the chance to have these friends in your life!

National Bagel Day

What is National Bagel Day?
National Bagel Day is January 15. Bagels have a history that is richer than your favorite cream cheese spread! These rounds of dough can be found just about anywhere: breakfast joints, coffee shops, supermarkets, or even your kitchen pantry. In fact, 2018 saw more than 354 million bagels sold.

National Bagel Day History
Bagels have a long and highly documented history that travels from the Jewish families of Poland in the 1600s to wrapped up in parchment paper in your hands today. And, unlike many things created nearly five-hundred years ago, bagels are remarkably unchanged. Sure, cream cheeses and butters and flavors and toppings may have evolved over time but bagel is a beigel is a beygal.

Bagels made the jump to America with a massive Polish-Jewish immigration in the 1800s that firmly entrenched itself in New York City where it thrived. In fact, an entire union was created in the early 1900s called Bagel Bakers Local 338 to support the growing, immigrant-led industry. That also begat the “bagel brunch,” that we still enjoy to this day with little to no changes: lox, cream cheese, capers, tomatoes, and red onions.

While bagels were hugely popular in New York City almost immediately, they didn’t make their way to the national scale until the mid 20th-century where automation and bread slicing (the coolest thing!) made mass manufacturing much more efficient. Since then, bagels have taken off to include a variety of flours, toppings, dips and smears but still remain – by and large – exactly as they were in the 1600s.

Congratulations for winning the second Bingo round Buddy! :)

Winners do not go away empty handed - They must win a prize and for winning a Double Bingo, your prize will be TWO cards from my deck of Trading Cards on my nations: Fort Verden, Elven King Thranduil and Little Thranduil. Except the cards in the Cards Gifted To Me By My Sons collection. Choose your prizes and I will send them to you Buddy!

Edit: The Randomness of Trecdom2 Buddy, please post your Bingo card too. Since you were working on getting a Double Bingo and might already have a Bingo, perhaps we have a runner up or second place winner this time. If that is the case, you will win a prize too Buddy.
