I’m used to doing a marathon viewing of a full disc and we have 10 seasons to watch. So I asked and seems others are up to watching two episodes in a night.

We’ll have an intermission between the two shows. 😉

Again this is a virtual event that I’m hosting on FB.

Chocolate Mint Day
February 19, 2016 in the World
The U.S. National Confectioners Association lists February 19 as “Chocolate Mint Day”
Most people agree that mint and chocolate were made for each other. A burst of refreshing peppermint, spearmint, or crème de menthe combined with the smooth, rich taste of chocolate is a truly unique pairing.
Some of the most famous chocolate mint inventions include: mint chocolate cake, Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies, grasshopper martinis, mint chocolate soap and lip balm, Andes after-dinner mints, and mint chocolate chip ice cream. Chocolate mint is also a type of herb. It is part of the spearmint family and has edible leaves that taste like chocolate and mint!
To celebrate Chocolate Mint Day, snack on a piece of your favorite chocolate mint candy, enjoy a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream, make one of these mint chocolate recipes, or drop a candy cane in a steaming cup of hot cocoa!

National Single Tasking Day
February 19, 2016 in the USA
Attention multi-taskers. If doing more than one thing at a time is part of your daily routine, hold on to your keyboard, telephone, handy-dandy gadget and/or mobile device. It’s Single Tasking Day, an annual “holiday” that encourages folks to slow down and tackle one thing at a time.
Most of us are overworked, underpaid and over-stressed. There simply is not enough time in the day to get everything done. The thought of being able to actually complete a thought, a sentence, a task, project or activity without interruption, sounds absolutely divine! Researchers have found that the human brain is unable to focus on two or more tasks at once. And studies suggest multi-tasking actually lowers productivity. Being able to take your time to do one thing at a time means less stress and fewer mistakes.
If only every day could be Single Tasking Day.
