If you haven’t watched the news in awhile, then don’t. It’s so depressing and horrible all of the time. Between the aftermath of the Zimmerman trial and the poor innocents being hurt by vengeful people who can’t seem to think of anything more productive to do that attack others, the political scandals and the plethora of sick criminals, it’s like watching the world flush down the toilet. The need to keep up with current events keeps me going back to it again, but every time I find myself so angry and frustrated. Makes me happy we have a place to go and find little things to celebrate – though sadly, today is another day that is short on fun ones. I’ll give you what I have though and you can take it from here.
This Day In History –
1925 Adolph Hitler publishes Mein Kampf
Food Celebration of the Day –
National Caviar Day – I’ve never tried caviar – I’ve seen it, I’ve thought about trying it, but I haven’t been able to force myself to try it. One of these days though – I figure I forced myself to try escargot and not only survived it, I didn’t mind it that much – though it’s not my first go-to on any menu. Today though is a day to either try it if you haven’t, or indulge in it if you have. But what is caviar? Well, it’s salted fish eggs, or roe. It is considered a delicacy. It’s typically enjoyed by people who can afford to indulge a little, since it can be quite expensive. The caviar thought to be the very best, and the most sought after, is Russian Caviar. There’s red caviar, black caviar and other colors. Black is considered to be the very best. The BEST caviar comes from sturgeon found in the Caspian Sea, but there is caviar from other fish that is less expensive and apparently also tasty. If you just can’t bring yourself to try fish eggs, you can try the Texas version instead – it uses black-eyed peas instead of fish eggs. I’ve made it before, and it’s very delicious.

Well, we only had fish eggs and one tidbit from history to celebrate, but there’s lots of things to appreciate and have fun with every single day that just don’t happen to be on a calendar! Look around you at your life and pick out something to celebrate and do so with your whole heart and all of your enthusiasm.
