Earl Gray is Picard's choice, have to go with that.

Since it's Groundhog day, of course, I'm going to watch the movie. I will also be watching other time loop TV episodes. Star Trek Voyager: Coda, TNG: Cause and Effect, DSC: Magic To Make the Sanest Man Go Mad, and SG-1 Window of Opportunity.

It was Over Texas! Just got home. The La Vibora was my favorite of the ones I managed to ride today. Shame the Judge Roy Scream was closed. It was on my LIST.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Today is:
National Women Physicians Day

Quotes of the Day:
“Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.” – Frank A. Clark

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

National Women Physicians Day

This is just the fourth National Women Physicians Day, on February 3 . The event celebrates Elisabeth Blackwell’s birthday; she was the first female medical doctor in the U.S. It’s a time to honor women doctors across the country, and the progress they’ve made since Blackwell’s time. Nationally, there are still fewer female doctors than male doctors, but the progress is steady. In 2017, for the first time in history, women made up more than half of all those in medical schools.

National Women Physicians Day timeline
1940s
Nigeria's first woman doctor

Nigerian gynecologist Dr. Elizabeth Abimbola Awoliyi was the country's first woman doctor.

Feb. 3, 1921
Elizabeth Blackwell was born

Blackwell, the first female doctor in the U.S., faced medical school rejection letters with statements about her intellectual inferiority.

1540
England's Henry VIII granted the charter for the Company of Barber-Surgeons

It led to healthcare specialization and barred women from practicing professionally.

How to Observe National Women Physicians Day
Thank your physician

If you see a female doctor, thank her for her work. Make sure she knows you appreciate the time and care she provides.

Post to social media
Get on Twitter or Facebook and share stories and/or history of women doctors. Use #NationalWomenPhysiciansDay or #WomenPhysiciansDay.

Binge-watch your favorite women doctors
From Dr. Quinn to Dr. Meredith Grey, TV has given us well-rounded, strong, smart women we can look up to in the medical profession. Grab a bowl of popcorn and take the journey with them.

5 Kick-Butt (Medical) Women Who Should Be Your Heroes
Marie Curie

Her work on radiation led to medical advances, including cancer treatments.

Florence Nightingale
She was the first woman to receive the Order of Merit for her work during the Crimean War.

Maria Montessori
Montessori, the first woman in Italy to get a medical degree, developed the eponymous education system that encourages exploration and hands-on learning.

Rosalind Elsie Franklin
This British biophysicist's work with x-ray DNA images led to the discovery of DNA's double helix.

Virginia Apgar
She developed the Apgar score, which measures a newborn baby's health — and was Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons' first female "full" professor.

Why National Women Physicians Day is Important

It brings discrimination in the medical field to light
Medicine is historically dominated by men. Women in these professions, especially physicians, face challenges and obstacles that make entering the field more difficult. Also, women healthcare providers still earn less than men.

It celebrates women's contributions to the field
Studies have shown that patients cared for by women doctors have better health outcomes. Also, patient readmittance and mortality rates are both significantly lower within the same hospital.

Women make up a third of the physician workforce
Male doctors still make up the majority of physicians, but medical schools are about 50/50, with women having a slight edge. In general, the field is seeing more diversity. From 2015 to 2017, black medical students increased by nearly 13 percent, while Hispanic students rose by more than 15 percent.

The Niners weren't able to take advantage of an interception, and then the penalty call that placed the Chiefs on the goal line certainly didn't help

I actually voted for that one because of the number of snowflakes bitching about it.

Anytime DeBartolo's team loses it makes me smile. I know it is petty. I know he doesn't own the team anymore. But I also that everytime Jr's team losses, even now, he has an epic tantrum. And yes, that makes me smile.

Does Fiesta Texas still have the roller coaster that is more or less built into the cliff?

World Cancer Day

Sooner or later, it seems, cancer has an impact on us all. That’s why World Cancer Day on February 4 is an important day to raise awareness about prevention, detection, and treatment. Started by the Union for International Cancer Control in 2008, World Cancer Day activities seek to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer by 2020.

How to Observe World Cancer Day

Get Social
Join the #WeCanIcan, Support Through Sport, and Thundercalp campaigns on social media. For the more adventurous, you can also check out #nohairselfie on Facebook or Twitter.

Take a Moment And Commit
Take a moment to reflect on cancer's impact on you—and commit to taking a positive action, whether it is donating time or money, scheduling a doctor's appointment or making a healthier choice at mealtime today.

Reach Out And Remember
Take a moment to connect with your loved ones who have been touched by the big "C."

Why World Cancer Day is Important

One-Third of the Most Common Cancers Can Be Prevented
There is a lot that can be done at an individual, community and policy level with the right strategies for cancer prevention. Taking the time to understand what you, your family and community can do to make a difference can have a huge impact on just one person.

Cancer Does Have Warning Signs
For many cancers, there are warning signs and symptoms and the benefits of early detection are indisputable. As busy as you may be, taking time to get that check-up and speak with your doctor can help create awareness and peace of mind.

Talking About Cancer Can Actually Help Everyone Heal
While cancer can be a difficult topic to address, particularly in some cultures and settings, dealing with the disease openly can improve outcomes at an individual, community and policy level. Knowing where to go for help and being part of a larger support network can help everyone feel part of the solution.

National Signing Day

Are you ready for some football? We hope so, because February 5 is National Signing Day! Where do you see yourself in five years? Does this simple question lead you into a malaise of existential dread? Then being try a high school recruit deciding on a college on the first Wednesday in February every year. On February 6, National Signing Day, a whole group of high school football players are eligible to commit to the college of their choice. Some of the most talented players announce their decisions in front of television cameras and their entire school. So don’t sweat your next five years—at least you don’t have to make your decisions in front of an audience.

National Signing Day timeline

2017
Early Signing Reinstated

The NCAA reinstates early signing in football.

1981
Early Signing Days Prohibited

The NCAA decided to hold one official day when recruits commit to colleges.

1964
NCAA Manages Letter of Intent

The NCAA started the management and administration of National Letters of Intent.

November 6, 1869
Rutgers vs. Princeton

Rutgers University and Princeton University faced off in the first-ever game of intercollegiate football.

National Signing Day Activities

Play a game of football
Grab a couple of friends and head to the local park. Catch, run, and throw your way to glory. This is your chance to do your best impersonations of your favorite players. And while you might not be signing a letter of intent on National Signing Day, you can still do your best dance in the end zone after scoring a touch down.

Relive your favorite plays
The college football season and the NFL season might have ended but there are plenty of historic replays to rewatch. What was your favorite catch? Do you remember where you were when your favorite team got that season-changing victory? Commemorate those moments by rewatching them again and again and again.

Play video games
Yeah, it's not the same thing as actually playing football, but not everyone can run a 40 yard dash in just under five seconds. Load your favorite game and pretend you're the mega athlete you always wanted to be. People might not look at you like a conquering hero outside the confines of your living room, but hey, you don't chase greatness for the accolades.

Facts About NCAA College Football Stadiums

Most Sellouts

Why We Love National Signing Day

A new start for our favorite teams
No matter how your favorite college football team finished last year, National Signing Day means an opportunity for restored hope. A new quarterback or linebacker could mean the difference between a heartbreaking loss and a triumphant victory. National Signing Day means the the opportunity for fans to dream big once again.

It gives us new heroes to root for
Every year our favorite colleges players filter into the NFL, CFL, AFL, or into a job that has nothing to do with football at all. As players that you've become a fan of get ready to graduate, it's fun to choose new players that you'll root for over the course of the next four years. National Signing Day is where it begins for all of them.

The announcement is a huge celebration
Some of the most talented players often throw big press conferences with tons of showmanship to announce their intent. There are often crowds, cameras, and emotionally-spent family members in attendance. When the player finally makes his decision, look for the smile that crosses the player's face when the people in attendance start cheering.

National Weatherperson's Day

There are few things that can affect our day — or inspire small talk in an elevator —quite like the weather. But instead of getting caught in a heavy downpour without an umbrella, what if there were a group of special people who could give us a hint beforehand? That’s why we celebrate National Weatherperson’s Day every year on February 5 — on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the first weather observers to take daily measurements (back in 1774). The day honors individuals in the fields of meteorology, weather forecasting and broadcast meteorology, as well as volunteer storm spotters and observers.

How to Observe National Weatherperson's Day

Thank your weatherperson
Forecasting the weather is not an easy job. Even with all the technology available, meteorology is not an exact science. These days most newscasters use some form of social media to keep us updated. Take a moment to let them know you appreciate their hard work.

Go outside
Life is so hectic these days and it’s easy to find ourselves running from the house to our car to our office and back again. Take a moment and just go outside to appreciate the weather. Even if it’s miserable out, taking a moment to rejoice in the changing seasons can put a smile on your face and make the day a little easier.

Try your hand at predicting the weather
There are numerous games and simulations on-line that will let you practice predicting the weather. Check them out—you may never look at your weatherperson the same way again!

Why National Weatherperson's Day is Important

They help us plan our day
It’s hard to imagine leaving the house in the morning without checking to see if it’s predicted to rain or if we need to bring a jacket. Not to mention finding out if some major weather event is threatening our safety. Thank goodness we have our friendly weatherperson to let us know what to expect so we aren’t caught unprepared.

Predicting the weather is cool science
From the early days of the thermometer and barometer to today’s use of advanced radar and satellites, science and technology have made some amazing tools available to meteorologists and weather enthusiasts to predict the weather.

Weatherpeople save lives
Knowing a major weather event is coming has saved countless lives. From preparing your home for a storm, to staying off the roads due to major evacuations, our weatherpeople are using their knowledge and insights to keep us prepared and safe.

World Nutella Day

Nutella is a spread flavored with hazelnut and cocoa. First introduced in Italy in 1964, the product is popular throughout the world. World Nutella Day, first held in 2007, was the brainchild of Nutella enthusiast and blogger Sara Rosso. Fans love it. Each year Nutella maker Ferrero selects one Nutella lover to lead the celebration. On February 5, Nutella fans post pictures, recipes, and messages declaring their love and loyalty to the popular spread.

World Nutella Day timeline

2017
The Nutella Cafe

The first Nutella Cafe opened on Chicago's Magnificent Mile.

2014
50 years!

Nutella marked its 50th anniversary by holding celebrations in 10 countries throughout the world.

2005
Largest breakfast ever!

Nearly 28,000 Nutella enthusiasts gathered in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, to participate in the world's largest continental breakfast.

1978
Australia discovered Nutella. "Aus-tella," anyone?

Nutella launched in Australia and opened its first plant outside Europe — in Sydney.

1966
Introducing, Nutella!

The son of of the company's founder created the first-ever jar of a new hazelnut cream. He soon named the new delight Nutella.

World Nutella Day Activities

Try it
If you've never tried Nutella, you can find it at almost any grocery store. Pick up a tub of the creamy mixture. Putting it down is the hard part.

Make it your own
There are lots of recipes online for baking with Nutella, but that doesn't mean you can't come up with your own. The company encourages fans to explore new ideas for baking with Nutella, and to spread the word when they come up with something delectable.

Join the party
World Nutella Day offers a host of opportunities for Nutella fanatics to get involved. You can host a Nutella party, write a Nutella poem or song, or create some Nutella art. You can also share photos and recipes on social media using the hashtag #WorldNutellaDay.

5 Ways To Enjoy Nutella

Make a sandwich
Find two slices of bread. Spread a thick layer of Nutella on one. Slap the other on top. And there you have it!

Add ice cream
Nutella makes a perfect topping for ice cream, especially after being heated up.

Nutella for breakfast?
Nutella goes well on a bagel or as stuffing in a crepe.

Donuts!
Rather than using a regular creme or custard filling for your donuts, try Nutella.

The easy way
Just rip the top of that tub of Nutella and have at it with a spoon.

Why We Love World Nutella Day
Nutella is magic in the mouth

It's the perfect combination of cocoa and hazelnut! People of all ages — kids, teens, and adults — go nuts for it. Chefs throughout the world can only wish they had come up with the combination that has put smiles on so many faces.

It's versatile
The beauty of Nutella is that you can put it on almost anything. Kids eat Nutella sandwiches. You can make Nutella ice cream. You can bake Nutella cakes and brownies. Ferrero, its parent company, practically begs you to find a dessert in which Nutella won't work.

It was an accident
There was a shortage of cocoa in the Piedmont region of Italy back in the 1800s. To stretch the supply, chocolate was mixed with ground hazelnuts, and the kids went crazy for it. When the cocoa supply returned, the kids refused to switch back. Nutella became the creamy version of the mixture, which was initially produced in blocks.

Here's some logic that had me scratching my head.

The school pulled another substitute to cover a period for the class I was covering, so I could cover a different class.

Certification thing? Trying to fit the teachers with the right certs into the classes those certificates apply?

There ain't no "poised" about it. It is a done deal. This latest play in the ongoing coup by the left is over.

But wait, the Democrats aren't finished tearing up the Constitution yet. I'm sure there are a couple more chapters left in this saga.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/02/04/state-union-highlights-donald-trumps-2020-address/4600684002/

The only reason that classless troll will still have a job next January is that she comes from a district where the majority of voters are crazier than she is.

Don't think so? Take a look at San Francisco. The people with brains and/or money are fleeing the city and state at a rate that is staggering the real estate market. While this has city managers crying the blues, those same law givers are repealing laws against public urination and defecation and tying the hands of police when it comes to enforcing just about any misdemeanor or simple drug possession charge.

All this while residents and visitors have to run a gauntlet of "aggressive" pan handlers while sidestepping crap and needles in the street.

If anyone deserves one, it is Rush. I hope he can beat the lung cancer.

No, I don't think it was a matter of certification. That rarely matters when working as a substitute. Most of the time you're simply a babysitter while the kids do worksheets or bookwork. Any content knowledge is a bonus.

How were the Democrats tearing up the Constitution? Just because you don't agree with their actions does not make it unconstitutional.

National Frozen Yogurt Day

You scream, I scream, we all scream for…Frozen Yogurt? Yes! Frozen yogurt is the delicious, creamy treat we all love. Yogurt was first invented over 4,000 years ago in the Middle East and India and then slowly made its way across the world over the centuries. But it wasn’t until the 1970’s the brilliant idea of freezing yogurt (and offering a ‘healthier’ alternative) created the taste sensation we love today. Since then, though tastes have cycled from sweet to sour, frozen yogurt has secured a place in our dessert lexicon. So, on February 6, pull the lever at your favorite frozen yogurt shop to celebrate National Frozen Yogurt Day.

National Frozen Yogurt Day Activities

Throw a 1980’s themed yogurt party
Frozen yogurt, as we know it today, first appeared on the scene in the 1980’s with the advent of the yogurt chain TCBY. To celebrate this inspired dessert, invite a bunch of friends to come dressed in their favorite 80’s attire, make a playlist of your favorite 80’s hits and buy pints of all your favorite flavors. Complete the menu by asking everyone to bring their favorite topping and let the party begin!

Check out your local frozen yogurt shops
Between frozen yogurt chains and local Mom and Pop shops, there’s no shortage of frozen yogurt places to try. Many of them will be offering specials on Feb. 6, so celebrate frozen yogurt’s special day by exploring your city to try all the flavors and toppings available. Not only will you get to know your city better, but you get treats all along the way.

Make a frozen yogurt cake
Combine two cups of ground graham crackers or your favorite cookie with a ½ cup of melted butter and firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan. Scoop in your favorite yogurt flavor and top with some of your favorite toppings. Place your creation in freezer for an hour and presto, you are ready to serve your frozen yogurt cake for your next dessert.

Why We Love National Frozen Yogurt Day

Well duh, it’s delicious!
There are few things as wonderful as a cup of frozen yogurt from your favorite shop covered with delicious toppings... With so many flavors to choose from, including the new trend of tart flavors, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect treat to enjoy any time of the day or night.

It can make you healthier
Although it can have as many calories as ice cream, according to the Livestrong website, “yogurt with probiotic cultures, including frozen varieties, can help maintain and improve heart and blood vessel health." Additionally, bacteria naturally occurring in yogurt, even the frozen kind, could possibly have a positive effect on your digestive system.

Frozen yogurt is a cultural icon
Joking that she would be remembered as the “frozen yogurt justice”, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan had the first frozen yogurt machine installed in the Supreme Court cafeteria. And, in keeping with its practice of naming each version of the Android OS after a dessert, Google named its 2010 Android 2.2 release “Froyo”.

The impeachment of President Trump is unconstitutional because:
—There was no quid pro quo.
—If there was a quid pro quo, that is business as usual among nations. It is very rare that one nation does something for another nation without at least having a favor to call in later.
—The fact that Joe Biden is running for President does not excuse him from investigation, even by the person he might run against.
—The Schiff Show that lead up to the vote to impeach was about as unconstitutional as one can get with the Democrats refusing to produce the whistle blower or even allow Republicans to call their own witnesses.
—Even Nancy's hilarious attempt to put off the inevitable is arguably unconstitutional.
—Precedent and the constitution require a bipartisan impeachment process in both houses.

Democrats are all about civil rights right up until they disagree with those rights. The Second Amendment is one clear example where Democrats would love to shred the constitution. Take look at what prominent Democrats have to say on the Second Amendment and other rights in this nation:
—“If you want to have a gun in your house, I think you’re pretty stupid — particularly if you have kids — but I guess you have a right to do that.” Michael Bloomberg
—"Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe." Sen. Dianne Feinstein
—"When we got organized as a country, [and] wrote a fairly radical Constitution, with a radical Bill of Rights, giving radical amounts of freedom to Americans, it was assumed that Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly .... When personal freedom is being abused, you have to move to limit it." Bill Clinton
—"If I could have banned them all - 'Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns' - I would have!" Diane Feinstein
—“I don’t believe people should to be able to own guns.” Barack Obama
—"We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment." Hillary Clinton
—"These are public airwaves and the public should be entitled to a fair presentation." Sen. Dianne Feinstein arguing for a bill that would effectively silence conservative talk radio

I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but there's a starter for you.

Edit: Let me leave you with the thoughts of one of America's most prominent liberals, a man who voted for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and a nationally recognized Constitutional lawyer, professor of Constitutional law and expert on the document itself, Mr. Alan Derhowitz: https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/473849-two-house-articles-of-impeachment-fail-to-meet-constitutional-standards

Don't know about anyone else, but we thought that was one of the most rousing State of the Union messages we have seen in years. That was really a nice gesture to Rush Limbaugh and brining home the soldier on his fourth tour was very touching. The chronicling of the successes accomplished in America was a nice reminder to naysayers. Shoot, just yesterday we went shopping for a new, bigger, shinier, wheelbarrow to help bring all that green home from Wall Street. And Nancy, so petty. Sheesh, give us a break. What a Drama Queen.

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

You may not hear about these terms as much today as in years past, but HIV/AIDS is still wreaking havoc in the African-American community. If you are African-American, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) offers the latest updates on the fight against the infection and the disease. NBHAAD occurs every February 7 with inspirational stories of survivors, suggestions on how to make healthier, more positive lifestyle choices, and details on the latest innovations in education and treatment. NBHAAD speaks to the resilient spirit of strength, faith, and hope in the black community.

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day timeline

2012
A new in-home HIV test kit

The FDA approved the OraQuick In-Home HIV test, an oral, rapid-acting test with results in 20 to 40 minutes.

2010
President Obama's AIDS initiative

The Obama Administration announced an ambitious initiative to curb the HIV/AIDS epidemic by reducing new HIV infections by 25 percent within five years, and by concentrating those efforts on the 12 U.S. cities with the highest AIDS rates.

2005
A troubling statistic

According to CDC end-of-year projections, just under half of all U.S. citizens living with HIV were African-American.

2004
African-American women at risk

HIV was the leading cause of death for black women ages 24-34, and the third leading cause of death for ages 35-44.

1992
Arthur Ashe

The tennis great revealed he developed AIDS after contracting HIV from tainted blood during heart surgery years earlier.

How to Observe National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Get tested
In July 2006, on the opening day of the NAACP convention, Chairman Julian Bond tested publicly for HIV. This sent a message to the black community about the importance of getting tested. If you have never been tested, follow that lead and commit to taking this step. Buy a home-testing kit either online or at a drugstore. While you're at it, test for other sexually transmitted diseases.

Use a condom — every time
One of the biggest dangers in spreading HIV/AIDS is practicing risky behaviors like unprotected sex — no matter your sexual orientation.

Remember a loved one
It's a time to remember those currently living with HIV or AIDS, and especially to honor those who have died from the disease. Attend a candlelight vigil at a church or a program at a community center. Put fresh flowers on your loved one's grave. Or sit quietly in front of the small shrine you may have at home and lovingly remember the good times you shared with your friend, partner, spouse, or relative.

5 Things To Know About HIV/AIDS

It's a relentless virus
HIV can live in a used needle for up to 42 days depending on the needle's environment, temperature, and other factors.

It once had a different name
The original acronym for AIDS was GRID, Gay-Related Immune Deficiency, which was first mentioned in a “New York Times” article in 1982.

It affects women with a history of sexual abuse
Sexually-abused women may be more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors such as exchanging sex for drugs, having multiple partners, or practicing unprotected sex.

HIV doesn't automatically turn into AIDS
Thanks to potent new drugs, many HIV-positive people never develop AIDS.

It's covered under the Affordable Care Act
The ACA provides free or low-cost coverage for treatment and medications to low-income HIV-positive patients under Medicaid expansion.

Why National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is Important
It’s part of an effective grassroots effort
National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is part of a major offensive against HIV/AIDS spreading in the African-American community — and by all accounts it's working. Still, despite increased education efforts and a continued push for testing and treatment options, there are 471,500 African-Americans living with HIV, according to the CDC. However, the number of newly-infected people is declining or leveling off. After 18 years of persistent grassroots efforts to forge partnerships in funding research, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day still matters because it keeps the conversation going not only in the black community, but in all communities.

You can be easily infected
In 2016 African-Americans accounted for 44 percent of HIV diagnoses despite being only 12 percent of the U.S. population. In fact, you can live with HIV for years without realizing it. There are several risky behaviors for passing on the virus including engaging in unprotected sex with an HIV-positive person or sharing needles and syringes.

African-American women struggle with HIV/AIDS
African-American women have benefited from increased education and treatment in the fight against HIV/AIDS. But in 2016 the CDC reported that over 7,000 women were newly diagnosed. Many of these women were infected through heterosexual contact because women who are married, or in otherwise monogamous relationships, may feel "safe" without using condoms.

Give Kids A Smile

Believe it or not, there are children who refuse to smile because they are ashamed of their teeth. Sadly, their parents may be unable to afford dental care. Give Kids A Smile volunteers help turn those frowns turn into smiles! The ADA Foundation’s Give Kids A Smile program kicks off on the first Friday in February (February 7) each year. Then, throughout the year, dentists all across the country gather in hundreds of locations to offer free dental services to children who may not otherwise have access to a dentist. In addition to dentists, other volunteers like dental hygienists and dental assistants also donate their time and talents.

Give Kids A Smile timeline

2017
Give Kids A Smile celebrated 15 years of teamwork

The event grew to include 30,000 dental team members working alongside 8,000 dentists to provide free oral health services to children.

2003
Give Kids A Smile went national

Launched by the ADA, Give Kids A Smile focused on the importance of oral health by providing free dental services to millions of poor children.

2002
Two dentists started Give Kids A Smile

Drs. Jeff Dalin and B. Ray Storm, two St. Louis dentists, delivered free dental care to almost 400 children in one day during the first Give Kids A Smile event.

1800s
The ancient Chinese brushed their teeth with a toothpaste-like substance
The ancient Chinese used herbal mints, salt, and ginseng to brush their teeth with a substance that had a consistency similar to modern toothpaste.

How to Observe Give Kids A Smile

Contact a participating dentist
With nearly 7,000 dentists taking part in Give Kids A Smile, you can check to see if a program is available near you. Call the GKAS hotline to see if there’s a program in your community where you can make an appointment, or contact your state dental society. Many programs take place in February and throughout the spring. Make sure that your dentist is located close enough to provide ongoing care, because one of the event's goals is to connect children with dentists for regular visits.

Find a location near you
Give Kids A Smile dentists will be working in all kinds of locations. They'll be in community centers, schools, and also in mobile screening vans. The ADA can help you find out if there is a program in your community, and provide contact information for appointments.

Get your child's school involved
Since Give Kids A Smile Day is part of a larger effort to bring dentists into underserved communities, ask your child's school principal if the school can be an event site. See if the principal or school nurse will consider inviting a dentist or dental hygienist to provide oral health education. It's important to get children excited about good oral health! The ADA Foundation offers a GKAS Program Planning Toolbox for those who would like to start a GKAS program.

Chew On These 4 Incredible Facts About Dentistry

It's a crazy choice
Nearly 60 percent of Americans would rather get a dental exam than sit next to someone loudly yakking on a cell phone.

It makes cheese more appealing
Who knew that eating hard cheeses like cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Swiss can help reduce cavities because of their neutralizing plaque acid properties?

A decayed tooth is different from a cut on your body
Only a dentist can return a decayed tooth to good health since a tooth can’t repair itself.

Your mom was right
Eat more celery, carrots, and apples because these hard, crunchy goodies help to naturally clean your teeth.

Why Give Kids A Smile is Important

It's part of a larger community-focused effort
The American Dental Association (ADA) and the ADA Foundation are committed to helping everyone maintain good oral health, especially in underserved communities. Give Kids A Smile is just one part of a total push for ongoing dental care for all Americans. The ADA also offers a poster and other educational materials for National Children’s Dental Health Month each February.

It offers basic dental care for children
Give Kids A Smile volunteers have provided oral health services to more than 5.5 million children since 2002. Some dentists provide basic pediatric dental care including fillings, extractions, cleanings, and lab work. Others provide oral health education, screenings, and preventive care such as fluoride varnish. There are about 1,500 Give Kids A Smile programs across the country each year. At the end of the program, many happy children leave with free toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, and other items.

It's a way for dentists to "pay it forward"
Assembling thousands of dental teams to participate in a volunteer event is a colossal effort – but seeing kids’ healthy smiles makes it all worthwhile. More than 7,000 dentists volunteer their services each year for Give Kids A Smile. Another 25,000 dental team members including hygienists, dental students, and others also participate. Together, they provide oral health services to more than 300,000 kids each year. Volunteers are the heart of Give Kids A Smile!

National Wear Red Day

Despite all the attention we pay to cancer rates, heart disease is still the #1 killer of women. On National Wear Red Day, held every year on the first Friday in February (February 7), women all over the country will be wearing red to help raise awareness of women’s heart health. The American Heart Association hopes by asking women (and men) to wear such a noticeable and, some would say, powerful color on this day, they can bring attention to a disease which claims the lives of almost 500,000 women each year.

National Wear Red Day Activities

Schedule a Well-Woman Visit
Early detection can make a huge difference in the battle against heart disease. Ask your doctor to review your overall health, including your cardiovascular health. Then discuss a plan to keep you healthy and fit for years to come.

Get Moving
Doing something physical every day helps you live a longer, better life. With just 30 minutes of moderate physical exercise at least 5 times a week you can significantly lower your risks for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Plus you’ll feel great!

Take a few minutes for yourself and your heart
Stress can trigger some of the risk factors for heart disease. Taking a few moments out of your day to decompress, meditate or just do a few yoga poses can significantly lower your blood pressure and set you on a healthier path.

Why We Love National Wear Red Day

National Wear Red Day has had a real impact
Since the inception of National Wear Red Day in 2003, nearly 90% of women have made at least one healthy behavior change, more than 50% have increased their exercise and more than 40% have checked their cholesterol levels.

There was a fashion show
In 2017, Macy’s presented The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women® Red Dress Collection. Held during New York Fashion Week, the event showcased top designers, models and celebrities demonstrating their support for women’s heart health.

It calls attention to the fact that men and women may experience heart disease differently
Although women may experience the same heart attack symptoms as men, such as gripping chest pain and cold sweats, women often experience other less recognizable symptoms like pain in the stomach, jaw, neck or back, nausea or shortness of breath. The Go Red® campaign has helped increase awareness so women can pay better attention if they are experiencing symptoms.

Have an absolutely fantastic and safe day everyone!

Your Buddy Verner

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Today is:
National Boy Scout Day
National Kite-Flying Day

Quotes of the Day:

“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you deal with it is what makes the difference.” – Virginia Satir

“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” – James Dean

Music of the Day:

George Strait - The Fireman (Live From The Astrodome)

On This Day In History:

National Boy Scout Day

On February 8 we celebrate National Boy Scout Day to honor those who are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. Founded in 1910, by American W.D. Boyce, the Boy Scouts of America has helped shape many of our nation’s leaders. According to legend, Boyce was lost on a foggy street in London when an unknown Scout helped him by guiding him back to his hotel. When the boy refused a tip, explaining that he was only doing his duty as a Scout, Boyce was inspired to bring the teachings of the British Boy Scout Association back to the U.S.

How to Observe National Boy Scout Day

Do a good turn for someone else
The Boy Scouts are based on the idea of doing good deeds. Celebrate National Boy Scouts Day by helping someone in need, donating to a good cause or simply committing a random act of kindness.

Learn a new skill
Earn your own Merit Badge by learning a new skill in one of the Merit badge categories. Take a look at the Merit Badge page on the Boy Scouts of America site and choose an interesting badge. (Coin collecting, anyone?!) Then follow the requirements listed. You may not receive an actual badge, but you will have learned something new and probably had fun doing it.

Go camping
Camping is an important part of being a Boy Scout and a great way to celebrate National Boy Scouts Day. Camping helps develop self-reliance and resourcefulness and promotes feelings of wellness from being surrounded by nature. So, gather the family or a few friends, load up the car or truck with your tents and sleeping bags and head to the nearest camping site.

Why National Boy Scout Day is Important

Merit badges are a great concept
The purpose of the Merit badge program is to allow Scouts some time for career exploration. Boy Scouts earn badges by showing they have done or learned something in a specific area of study. There are over 135 different badges that can be earned in the areas of sports, crafts, science, trades, business and future careers.

Cool people are Boy Scouts
Some of our greatest national icons have been part of the Boy Scouts of America. Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy were Boy Scouts. Steven Spielberg and Neil Armstrong were both Eagle Scouts. Michael Jordan was a Cub Scout and Jimmy Buffett was Life Scout. In total, 5 United States presidents and 180 U.S. astronauts have been involved in Scouting programs.

It can have a lasting impact
According to the Boy Scouts of America, participating in a Scouting program can have a lasting effect on boys as they grow into men. 83% have stated that the values they learned as Scouts still impact their lives today. Of those involved for at least 5 years with the Boy Scouts, 87% feel their self-confidence can be linked to scouting. And half of those surveyed claim Boy Scouts helped them on their current career path.

National Kite-Flying Day

Get set to feel the wind in your face, the line in your hand, and the liberating feeling one gets when flying a kite. It’s National Kite-Flying Day after all. Did you know kites have a lot to do with lift, thrust, drag, and wind pressure? Probably not. It’s ok. On February 8 simply grab a kite and some string to get started. Then, find an open field, start running, and hope for the best. Oh, and pray for wind.

National Kite-Flying Day timeline

1800s
Kites and science

Kites were used throughout this century for scientific research.

1752
An electric moment

Benjamin Franklin used a kite to demonstrate the electrical nature of lighting.

1200s
Marco Polo

The Italian explorer brought a Chinese kite back to Italy. Soon, kites became known throughout Europe, and from there, they would eventually travel to the New World.

National Kite-Flying Day Activities

Go fly a kite (naturally)
Make sure to share your kite-flying experience on social media using the hashtag #NationalKiteFlyingDay.

Watch "Mary Poppins"
The song "Let's Go Fly a Kite" comes at the end of the film when George Banks discovers what's really important in life.

Throw a make-your-own-kite party
Buy the necessities: wooden sticks, paper, plastic or fabric, glue, and string. Also get some fun decorations like glitter, ribbons, and stickers. When the kite-making is over, gather everyone outside and let their creations fly.

4 Fantastic Kite Facts
The longest kite

It measured a whopping 3,394 feet.

The fastest kite
A kite was recorded flying at a speed of 120 mph.

The longest kite trip
A kite once flew for 180 hours straight

The most kites
A Japanese kite-maker reportedly flew 11,284 kites on a single line — the largest number recorded thus far.

Why We Love National Kite-Flying Day

Kids love kites
For kids, flying a colorful, decorative kite through the air is magical. It’s also a great opportunity for you to teach them a little about the science behind it all. Assuming, of course, that you have a good understanding yourself!

It gets people outside
Yes, we know, it's cold out. Still, head to your favorite kite-flying area prepared with layers of sweaters, jackets, scarves, gloves, and hand warmers. Then, it's hot chocolate for everyone.

It makes us nostalgic
Longing for simpler times? Put down that phone! Kite-flying takes you back to another era.

^ No more seafood? Thank God Buddy! I would like to be able to consume seafood but unfortunately I am severely allergic to ALL seafood. I am also severely allergic to peanuts but fortunately not other types of nuts. Unfortunately my three sons inherited my peanut and seafood allergies. Accidental ingestion of peanuts and/or seafood could cause us to have a severe and potentially life threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis. That’s why my sons and I must have our EpiPens on us at all times.

“Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day. Everything is going to be okay in the end. If it's not the okay, it's not the end.” -- John Lennon

"You shouldn't focus on why you can't do something, which is what most people do. You should focus on why perhaps you can, and be one of the exceptions." --Steve Case

"Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can't put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don't overlook life's small joys while searching for the big ones." --H. Jackson Brown Jr.

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." --Harriet Beecher Stowe

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." --Dale Carnegie

National Pizza Day

What is National Pizza Day?
Join us on February 9 as we celebrate National Pizza Day! It’s hard to imagine that before World War II, pizza was little known outside of Italy or Italian immigrant communities. This cheesy disc went from a niche cultural meal to the star of the show anywhere it turns up! Let’s hear it for pizza!

History of National Pizza Day
Though flatbreads with toppings were consumed by ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks, the modern birthplace of the pizza is southwestern Italy’s Campania region, home to Naples. Founded around 600 BC as a Greek settlement, Naples in the 1700s and early 1800s was a thriving waterfront city. Technically an independent kingdom, it was notorious for its throngs of working poor, or lazzaroni. These Neapolitans required inexpensive food that could be consumed quickly. Pizza — flatbreads with toppings that can be eaten for every meal — fulfilled this need. These early pizzas featured tasty toppings such as tomatoes, cheese, oil, anchovies, and garlic. More well off Italian authors judged Naples’ innovation, often calling their eating habits disgusting.

In 1861, Italy finally unified, and King Umberto I and Queen Margherita visited Naples in 1889. Legend says that the traveling pair became bored with their steady diet of French cuisine and asked for an assortment of pizzas from the city’s Pizzeria Brandi, founded in 1760. The variety the queen enjoyed the most was called pizza mozzarella, a pie topped with the soft white cheese, red tomatoes, and green basil — much resembling the Italian flag. Since then, this particular choice of toppings has been dubbed the Margherita pizza.

However, even with the Queen’s love for the dish, pizza would remain little known in Italy beyond Naples’ borders until the 1940s. Across the sea, immigrants to the United States from Naples were replicating their flatbreads in New York and other American cities. They were coming for factory jobs, but accidentally made a culinary statement. Relatively quickly, the flavors and aromas of pizza began to intrigue non-Neapolitans and non-Italians alike.

National Pizza Day Activities

Pizza Paar-tay!
I mean, why mess with a good thing? No matter what age you are, the words “pizza party” are guaranteed to delight and put a smile on everyone’s face.

Dare to Pizza All the Time
Pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Yes—that is the kind of perfect world we live in today. Crack an egg on it in the morning. Toss that salad on top for lunch. And why not go for the meat-lovers’ dinner?

Rediscover Pizza For the First Time
Chances are, you know your perfect slice down to the finest details. (Mine includes corn, pasilla chiles and feta cheese). But why not break out of the routine on National Pizza Day? We know you’ve been curious about that artichoke pesto pie at the place around the corner.

Why We Love National Pizza Day
There’s Something For Everyone

Thin crust or deep dish? Sauce or no sauce? Classic mozzarella or that new provolone? Wood-fired or out of the oven? Part of pizza’s appeal is that it’s never the same and can easily be adapted to changing tastes, preferences, and diets.

It’s Festive
Admit it, you still remember those grade school pizza parties with a certain sense of child-like glee. Whether it’s the red, white and green of a classic margherita pizza or the sparkle of perfectly cooked pepperoni, pizza adds something extra special, wherever you are.

Perfect Salty, Sweet, Carb-Y Goodness
The interplay of cheese to sauce to crust creates an almost addictive food bomb of different aromas, textures and flavors. Other foods are hard pressed to do the same.

National Toothache Day

oothaches are no fun and can pop up anytime. Left untreated, they can keep you up at night and prevent you from eating, traveling, or talking. However, everyone can take steps to prevent toothaches and ensure healthy teeth by regularly visiting the dentist and avoiding sugary foods. During National Toothache Day on February 9, check out our important tips that will help you prevent the painful and inconvenient experience of a toothache.

National Toothache Day timeline

2000s
Toothache Day was first celebrated

Although Toothache Day is widely celebrated now, no one seems to know who created it.

1830s
The tooth key was used to remove painful teeth

It was a painful but effective method to remove teeth when necessary. Fortunately, we've come a long way.

1498
The first bristled toothbrush was invented

People in China first cleaned their teeth with bristled brushes made out of bamboo or bone.

How to Observe National Toothache Day

Make a promise to brush and floss
Refocus your efforts on your oral health and vow to brush and floss twice a day. Set yourself up for success by stocking up on toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss.

Learn how to care for a toothache
Start by rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater and putting an icepack on your cheek to numb the area. If pain persists for more than two days, see a dentist.

Schedule regular dental appointments
Along with brushing and flossing daily, regular visits to your dentist can help prevent all tooth problems, including toothaches. Schedule cleanings twice per year and make sure to go, even with a busy schedule.

4 Ancient Remedies To Cure Toothaches At Home

Thyme
Apply oil with fresh or dried thyme to help the blood flow and relieve pain.

Sage
Swish around some tea made with sage and honey, or apply apply a bag of sage to the outside of the cheek.

Cloves
Clove oil has antibacterial properties that can relieve the symptoms.

Garlic
Although unpleasant, garlic paste can be applied to provide pain and swelling relief.

Why National Toothache Day is Important

It reminds us about oral health
Do you brush and floss two times per day? Taking time to think about and prioritize your oral health is an important step in keeping your teeth healthy and pain-free.

Toothaches encourage us to go for cleanings
After having one, you'll never want to have another again. While no fun, toothaches can help us be more proactive about visiting our dentists and scheduling regular cleanings.

Toothaches remind us to avoid sugar
Sugary foods can be a big reason people develop toothaches and other oral health problems. If you're trying to prevent a toothache, you'll likely avoid sugary foods which, in turn, may improve your overall health.

Nyah ha ha ha! We have another Winner! Talitha Macer has won this round of BINGO with a Septuple Bingo. Congratulations Talitha! :)

Winners do not go away empty handed - They must win a prize and for winning a Septuple Bingo, your prize will be SEVEN 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.


Talitha Macer wrote:7 cards? Wow thank you Verner but instead of 7 cards I'd like to claim just 1 card that in my opinion is worth 7 cards. I'd like to have your NewTexas card from Elven King Thranduil. It'll be the most valuable card in my collection. :D

Nyah ha ha ha! I was wondering whether anyone will claim my NewTexas card as their prize. Fortune favors the bold. Here you go, enjoy your prize and congratulations again Talitha! :)
