So yesterday was not a good day for me. I ended up having to leave work and had hubs take me to the ER. Good news; it wasn’t a cardiac issue, I had worked myself up in a really bad anxiety attack. I have a history of them.

The semi-good news? My carpal tunnel is/has returned in my dominant arm-why that arm went numb yesterday. Which started the anxiety attack. duh  So I’ve got a compression glove on it for the time being, until I can find my brace I used to wear before the surgery eight years ago.

anywho I promised some friends that I would write this up and post on the blog today.

Did-You-Fart?-Day
February 5, 2015 in the World
Did-You-Fart?-Day takes place on February 05, 2015. This day should remind you of a phenomenon often repressed your own existence. Did-You-Fart?-Day is celebrated since 2006 and was first proclaimed by the German cartoonist Bastian
Melnyk.
Flatulence is defined in the medical literature as “flatus expelled through the anus” or the “quality or state of being flatulent”, which is defined in turn as “marked by or affected with gases generated in the intestine or stomach; likely to cause digestive flatulence.”
There are five general symptoms related to intestinal gas: pain, bloating and abdominal distension, excessive flatus volume, excessive flatus smell and gas incontinence. One method of reducing the volume of flatus produced is dietary modification, reducing the amount of fermentable carbohydrates.

The 1917 Constitution was drafted in Santiago de Queretaro during the Mexican Revolution. It was approved by the Constitutional Congress on 5 February 1917, with Venustiano Carranza serving as the first president.
The Mexican constitution of 1917 was the first such constitution in the world to include social rights and served as a model for the Weimar Constitution of 1919 and the Russian Constitution of 1918.
All government offices, schools and businesses are closed on this day. Constitution Day is marked by large parades across Mexico.
Article 74 of the Mexican labor law (Ley Federal del Trabajo) provides that the first Monday of February (regardless the date) will be an official holiday in Mexico. This was a modification of the law made in 2005, effective since 2006; before, it was the February 5th regardless of the day.

February 5, 2015 in the USA
The word “fondue” is derived from the French word “fondre,” which means to melt. The dish originated in 19th century Switzerland as a way to use up hardened cheese. It became popular for dinner parties in the 1950s, but the chocolate dessert version did not emerge until the 1960s.
Chocolate fondue is a wonderful centerpiece for a party. Traditional dippers include fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, and tangerines; small pieces of cookie or cake; and miscellaneous goodies like marshmallows and pretzels.
Celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day by inviting some friends over to dip your favorite fruits and snacks into a delicious chocolate fondue!
