That is interesting and important. I loved playing board games with my family and friends when I was a kid and I played them with my husband after we got married. I've still got a lot of the games in my closet, although we haven't played in a while.

I didn't get the pun until I read the story. Where do people come up with these crazy holidays?

Today is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. A celebration that I can embrace!

Some board games could last longer.

An ice cream sandwich is an excellent suggestion, or maybe a blueberry popsicle.

Something to think about when complaining about today's heat:

Welsh rarebit sounds good.

Either I was hallucinating yesterday, or the list somehow changed on holidayinsights.com. There is no listing for National Ice Cream Sandwich Day on Sept. 2 now. Maybe I clicked on August dates by mistake, from my browser history.

'Sokay, ice cream sandwiches are good anytime. I couldn't find a blueberry popsicle but had a raspberry one which was blue (close enough).

I never understood why they have such a fancy name for cheese and toast- grilled cheese is much easier for me to say.

Welsh rarebit is rather a strange name.

This Oxford article doesn't clear it up much either.

I don't plan to spend much time thinking about logarithms today but stopped by to extend wishes for a happy Labor Day weekend. Enjoy the end of summer with family and friends .

I'm too tired and sleep deprived to think about logarithms, but I would also like wish you a happy Labor Day.

It's lunch time and Cheese Pizza is on the menu (I like extra cheese, myself)! Of course many other toppings can be added.
You might want to allow a little extra time if requesting delivery service, though.

We're going out for pizza tonight. I think I'll be getting the spinach and artichoke pizza. It has 2 cheeses - mozzarella and parmesan. http://triocafe.com/food-menu/index.html
