It's also

National Goof Off Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/other/goofoffday.htm

That's a holiday that I can appreciate.

I like water. It is a principal ingredient in many other things that I like such as coffee and beer. Those who are fortunate enough to have a reserve of water in the backyard can spend a pleasant day goofing off by the pool.

I like water too. It's healthy for you and has no calories, and it's free at restaurants. Bodies of water, such as ponds, lakes and oceans, are wonderful to gaze at. I try not to be wasteful in my water use, since I know that it's a precious resource.

Chips and dips can be enjoyed under the light of a full moon while we celebrate Near Miss Day.

It looks like we can also enjoy some Melba toast as we celebrate Near Miss Day under the light of a full moon. http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...-toast-day.htm

National chocolate covered raisin day
I was tempted to buy some yesterday but didn't- if I'd only known.

I haven't had any chocolate covered raisins in a long time, and I know that I would enjoy eating some today - or any day for that matter.

I made some money by running things to the recycling center today- maybe I'll get some chocolate covered raisins afterall.

Besides it being Good Friday, it is also:

Pecan Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh...h/pecanday.htm

Waffle Day http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreh.../waffleday.htm

I think those two go together pretty well!

Good Friday
I am not big on religious holidays but if you've ever said TGIF, this is THE DAY:


THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY!

I like pecans but question the above link's contention that it is the only nut tree native to America. I'd think others would include butternut, American chestnut, hickory nut, black walnut and beech. Native Americans also had a process for making acorns edible.

It would be nice to have waffles for breakfast more often but I usually do not put forth the effort and rarely eat out at breakfast. Chicken and waffles (Pennsylvania Dutch style) is also a special treat.
