It's also National Pig Day, so I guess we can pig out on peanut butter!

I didn't know that spring had 2 starting dates. I may not be winning anything from here, but at least I'm learning some things.

We are supposed to get out of our boring daily routine and do something exciting. Anyone have some suggestions?

My research suggests that we should enjoy some Banana Cream Pie today.

That's not my favorite pie, but I think I would enjoy some anyway.
