And the storms are hitting us now in my area, and whoa! I almost had a cow sighting, but nope, just a poor widdle squirrel caught in the downpour and wind. We are under a tornado watch until ten o’clock CST. woo not hoo… Hubs texted me, neither one of us feels like cooking, so I’m stopping by the local bbq; 26 Smoke House Grill! I’ve rated them on facebook as a *****!  The food is good, the bbq sauce is phenomenal- which if you know me, I don’t like barbecue sauce and I ❤ theirs!!! 😀 The service is the best I’ve ever had from a locally owned restaurant. And their home made pies are mmm mmm mmmm yummy!!! I love their pumpkin pie! seriously good stuff! If you’re in or near Central Indiana, take a drive to Fairmount, they are right on highway 26, just about across from the Village Pantry at the four way stop light. 😀

I’m having this, minus the pickle. 😛

Wednesday, the 10th of September, 2014 is the 253th day in 2014 and in the 37th calendar week.
General Events:
World Suicide Prevention Day
September 10, 2014 in the World
World Suicide Prevention Day is held on September 10, 2014. It is an awareness day which is observed every year, in order to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides, with various activities around the world. The observance is endorsed by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The World Suicide Prevention Day was founded in 2003
Suicide is the act of an organism intentionally causing its own death. Suicide is often committed out of despair, or attributed to some underlying mental disorder which includes depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, alcoholism and drug abuse. Pressures or misfortunes such as financial difficulties or troubles with interpersonal relationships may play a significant role. Over one million people die by suicide every year. The WHO estimates that it is the thirteenth-leading cause of death worldwide and the National Safety Council rates it sixth in the United States. It is a leading cause of death among teenagers and adults under 35. The rate of suicide is higher in men than in women. There are an estimated 10 to 20 million non-fatal attempted suicides every year worldwide.
Suicide prevention is an umbrella term for the collective efforts of local citizen organizations, mental health practitioners and related professionals to reduce the incidence of suicide. Such efforts include preventive and proactive measures within the realms of medicine and mental health, as well as public health and other fields. Suicide prevention interventions fall into two broad categories: prevention targeted at the level of the individual and prevention targeted at the level of the population.

Gibraltar National Day
September 10, 2014 in Gibraltar
Gibraltar National Day is celebrated on September 10, 2014. Gibraltar National Day is the official national day of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The day commemorates Gibraltar’s first sovereignty referendum of 1967, in which Gibraltarian voters were asked whether they wished to either pass under Spanish sovereignty, or remain under British sovereignty, with institutions of self-government. The official Gibraltar National Day events begin with a children’s fancy dress competition followed by a street party. Later a selected school choir sings songs with a Gibraltar theme. This is followed by the main event, the Mayor’s recitation of the names of the recipients of the Gibraltar Medallion of Honour and the reading of the Gibraltar National Day Declaration. This is followed by the traditional release from atop the Parliament building of 30,000 red and white balloons, representing Gibraltar’s population, which has featured on this day since 1992. A funday for children featuring bouncy castles and firground rides is then held. There is live music is played all afternoon at Governor’s Parade and the Rock on the Rock Club, all free of charge. The day culminates with a fireworks display released from the Detached Mole in the Gibraltar Harbour at night followed by a rock concert.

Swap Ideas Day
September 10, 2014 in the World
Swap Ideas Day is observed on September 10, 2014. The day encourages you to share ideas. Ideas are often construed as mental representational images; i.e., images of some object. In other contexts, ideas are taken to be concepts, although abstract concepts do not necessarily appear as images.
Many philosophers have considered ideas to be a fundamental ontological category of being. The capacity to create and understand the meaning of ideas is considered to be an essential and defining feature of human beings. In a popular sense, an idea arises in a reflexive, spontaneous manner, even without thinking or serious reflection, for example, when we talk about the idea of a person or a place.

September Calendars have finally been completed!! And we have two this month- thank you to my #1 Minion, Bunneh Sue for the request of the Supernatural calendar! I hope you and the person you requested it for likes it. 🙂

Yesterday was a day of technology glitches- IMO! 😛  But I’m still thinking and working on my project too. I think I have a bit of a work-around. Not big…but still okay! 😀 I just need to find one of my mini external drives to save the stuff on one of my older blogs before deleting pretty much all the content. :0 yeah…pretty drastic. But… sometimes you have to destroy something to create something better. I know, I have a weird perspective on things.

And up next, hopefully the calendar of the day, and the image of the day! Enjoy your Wednesday! If you’re near the storms that I’ve seen, be careful and stay calm!! 😀 xoxo
