          1. National Physician’s Assistant Day—celebrating the indispensable work done by physician’s assistants in the delivery of medical services; the profession was created by Duke Medical School in 1965 and since the first physician’s assistants graduated in 1967 the profession has grown to tens of thousands.
          2. Mad Hatter Day—in the 24/7 stressful world of work and providing for one’s family, today is the day to celebrate silliness and to wear a top hat with a piece of paper with “10/6” on it pinned to the front of the hat signifying ten shilling six pence price. Mercury was used in the 8th Century to make hats and exposure to it drove some hatters mad (crazy). 
           3. 1957 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1957 on a run of 2 weeks in that position Honeycomb by Jimmie Rodgers.  Here is a link to Jimmie Rodgers performing Honeycomb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1ubG2f1-to
          4.  National Noodle Day/Garlic Lovers Day—celebrating a great dish that can be made with rice, wheat, soybeans, potatoes and flours such as oats. If you are celebrating with a bowl of pho add some garlic!
           5.  Cram A Lot Of Life While On This Earth—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1908 of Carole Lombard, the queen of film comedy and wife of Clark Gable who appeared in her first movie at the age of 13 and was the highest paid actress in the 30’s; sadly she died in a airplane crash in 1942 coming back from a war bond sale tour.
On this day in:                                           
            a. 1683 German immigrants founded the first settlement of German immigrants in North America at Germantown, Pennsylvania.
            b. 1876 the American Library Association was founded.      
            c. 1889 Thomas Edison exhibited his first motion picture.
            d. 1927 the first talking motion picture The Jazz Singer premiered.
            e. 1981 Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was assassinated by Islamic extremists.
Reflections on Carole Lombard: “She gets up too early, plays tennis too hard, wastes time and feeling on trifles and drinks Coca-Colas the way Samuel Johnson used to drink tea. She is a scribbler on telephone pads, inhibited nail-nibbler, toe-puller, pillow-grabber, head-and-elbow scratcher, and chain cigarette smoker. When Carole Lombard talks, her conversation, often brilliant, is punctuated by screeches, laughs, growls, gesticulations and the expletives of a sailor’s parrot.” ~Life Magazine, 1937
