For Tuesday, February 8th, 2011
Boy Scout Day celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America.
Scouting groups across the country celebrate this day. Often a cake will be served at the weekly meeting or on a campout. Scout Sunday, the Sunday nearest the 8th of February, will often be marked with a church service, followed by a pancake breakfast.
Molasses was first discovered during the 1500's in Europe and was commonly used as a sweetener in baking, that is until the invention of refined white sugar. Molasses was not forgotten though. Its distinctive taste is still desired in many recipes including that of gingerbread, sauces, cookies, toffee, baked beans, fruitcake, and molasses bars.
Spicy yet sweet, molasses bars are a very popular snack in the Southern United States. Grab one to celebrate National Molasses Bar Day today!
Today is also Laugh and Get Rich Day, a day to recognize laughter's power to help workers be more effective, remember things better, and not change jobs as often
40 DAYS UNTIL SPRING!
A bit of love from someone near…
