Women of Aviation Worldwide Week
March 2-8, 2015 in the World
Women of Aviation Worldwide Week {abbrv. WOAW Week} is an annual holiday during the week (Monday through Sunday) that includes March 8.
Women of Aviation Worldwide Week is officially defined as “an international celebration of all women of aviation, and their contribution to the betterment of the air and space industry.”
In January 2010, Mireille Goyer launched an international grassroots initiative to celebrate the centennial of the first female pilot license worldwide earned by Raymonde de Laroche on March 8, 1910. Her call to “Fly it forward” encouraged pilots from around the world to introduce record numbers of girls and women to aviation during, what was then dubbed, “Women Pilots’ Week” as a salute to the pioneering women pilots of 1910.
In 2011, the initiative morphed into “Women of Aviation Worldwide Week” as the world celebrated the centennial of International Women’s Day. Each year, a theme is selected to highlight the anniversary of significant international historical achievements of some outstanding women of aviation.

Dr. Seuss Day
March 2, 2015 in the World
Today is Dr. Seuss Day, a full twenty-four hours to make a mess with the Cat in the Hat, dance around with the Fox in Sox, hear a Who with Horton, count the red and blue fish, help the Grinch see the error of his ways, and listen to Sam I Am’s friend complain about his dish of green eggs and ham!
Theodor Seuss Geisel, commonly known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, was a writer, poet and cartoonist. Though best known as a children’s author (he released a whopping forty-six books for tykes), his career also saw him work as an illustrator for advertising campaigns and a political cartoonist during the Second World War. He was also a true perfectionist, known to discard 95% of his material before settling on a theme for a new book, sometimes spending up to a year writing a single story, and preferring payment upon completion, rather than in advance.
March 2nd is a celebration of his life and works, as it was on this day in 1904 that he entered the world. Having lived eighty-seven years and made an incredible impact on numerous generations, he died in 1991 at his home in La Jolla, California. His many bizarre, colourful and zany tales are still cherished by young and old alike, and, having been translated into more than twenty languages, are read all across the world every single day.
If you fancy paying a fitting tribute, we recommend dressing up with a friend as Thing 1 and Thing 2. All you need are blue wigs and red jumpsuits. Oh, and boundless energy!

National Banana Cream Pie Day
March 2, 2015 in the USA
It’s National Banana Cream Pie Day! People have been making pies filled with cream, pudding, and custard since the Medieval times. Similar inventions from that era include Napoleons, cream puffs, and éclairs.
Bananas arrived in the United States in the 1880s. By the early 1900s, banana recipes appeared in every major cookbook across the country. Traditional banana cream pie recipes call for a crust made out of graham crackers or pastry dough; a layer of sliced bananas; a custard filling made with eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla; and a topping of whipped cream or meringue. Common embellishments include pecans or drizzles of chocolate and caramel.
Celebrate National Banana Cream Pie Day with a big slice of banana cream pie from your favorite local bakery!
