Sun Screen Day
May 27, 2014 in the World
Sun Screen Day educates and brings awareness to the importance of using sunscreen to protect yourself and your children from harmful UV rays from the sun.  This day is held on May 27th, just in advance of the summer and vacation season.
Ultraviolet rays from the sun is a serious risk to your health. With the steady depletion of the ozone layer above the earth, more and stronger UV rays get through.
Overexposure to the sun can cause a number of health problems. It can cause skin cancer, and sunspots. It can also result in premature aging of your skin.
There are more than 1 million cases of skin cancer diagnosed in the United States each year. Doctors and medical professionals advocate the use of sunscreen, to guard against health problems. They recommend an Skin Protection factor(SPF) of 15 or more. Sunscreens should be used for all outdoor activities, including swimming.
And yes, sun screens should be used on cloudy days. UV rays can penetrate through the clouds.

National Grape Popsicle Day
May 27, 2014 in the USA
Each year on May 27, it is National Grape Popsicle Day.
In San Francisco, California, in 1905, 11-yr-old Frank Epperson was outside on his porch, mixing water with a white powdered flavoring to make soda.  Upon going inside, it left it there, on the porch, with the stirring stick still in it.  That night in California, the temperature reached a record low and the following morning, Frank discovered the drink had frozen to the stick.  This inspired the fruit-flavored “Popsicle”.
Years later, in 1922, Epperson introduced his treat at a fireman’s ball, found it to be a huge success, and then in 1923, he made and sold his frozen treat-on-a-stick at an amusement park in Alameda, California.  In 1924, he applied for a patent for his frozen confectionery, which he called “Epsicle” ice pop.  He then renamed it “Popsicle“.
Popsicle’s are one of summertime’s favorite treats, for kids of all ages, and today honors one of the most popular flavors, GRAPE!
