Go For a Ride Day
November 22, 2013 in the World

Go For A Ride Day encourages you to get out into the world – hop on your bike, into your car, or simply get your walking boots out of storage and go on a trip. Don’t worry too much about where you’re going, just enjoy the journey!

As the holidays approach, life becomes chaotic, and perhaps a bit stressful. Take a breather, and go for a relaxing ride. You don’t need a destination to enjoy this day. But, you certainly can bring family or friends along for company.

World Philosophy Day
November 21, 2013 in the World

World Philosophy Day is celebrated on November 21, 2013. World Philosophy Day was proclaimed by UNESCO to be celebrated every third Thursday of November. It was first celebrated on 21 November 2002. Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.

Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. In more casual speech, by extension, “philosophy” can refer to “the most basic beliefs, concepts, and attitudes of an individual or group”.

The word “philosophy” comes from the Ancient Greek “philosophia”, which literally means “love of wisdom”. The introduction of the terms “philosopher” and “philosophy” has been ascribed to the Greek thinker Pythagoras. Philosophy is divided into many sub-fields. These include epistemology, logic, metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics.

Great American Smokeout
November 21, 2013 in the USA

Great American Smokeout takes place on November 21, 2013. The Great American Smokeout is an annual social engineering event on the third Thursday of November by the American Cancer Society. The event encourages Americans to stop tobacco smoking. The event challenges people to stop smoking cigarettes for 24 hours, hoping their decision not to smoke will last forever. The first Great American Smokeout was held in San Francisco’s Union Square on November 16, 1977. The event evolved from a series of smaller-scale initiatives. In 1970, in Randolph, Massachusetts, Arthur P. Mullaney suggested people give up cigarettes for a day and donate the money to a local high school. In 1974, a “Don’t Smoke Day” (or “D-Day”) was promoted by Lynn R. Smith of the Monticello Times in Monticello, Minnesota. On November 18, 1976, the California Division of the American Cancer Society successfully prompted nearly one million smokers to quit for the day. That California event marked the first Smokeout.

World Television Day
November 21, 2013 in the World

World Television Day is celebrated on November 21, 2013. In December 1996 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day commemorating the date on which the first World Television Forum was held in 1996. Television, or TV for short, is a telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images that can be monochrome or colored, with or without accompanying sound.

Commercially available since the late 1920s, the television set has become commonplace in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a vehicle for advertising, a source of entertainment, and news. Since the 1950s, television has been the main medium for molding public opinion. Since the 1970s, the availability of video cassettes, laserdiscs, DVDs and now Blu-ray Discs have resulted in the television set frequently being used for viewing recorded as well as broadcast material. In recent years, Internet television has seen the rise of television available via the Internet.

Television genres include a broad range of programming types that entertain, inform, and educate viewers. The most expensive entertainment genres to produce are usually drama and dramatic miniseries. However, other genres, such as historical Western genres, may also have high production costs.

Universal Children’s Day
November 20, 2013 in the World

The Universal Children’s Day takes place on November 20, 2013. First proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children. It was also chosen as the day to celebrate childhood and is celebrated annually.

November 20 is also the anniversary of the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1959. The Convention on the Rights of the Child was then signed on the same day in 1989, which has since been ratified by 191 states. Universal Children’s Day is preceded by International Men’s Day on November 19 creating a 48 hour celebration of men and children respectively during which time the positive roles men play in children’s lives are recognized.

The legal definition of “child” generally refers to a minor, otherwise known as a person younger than the age of majority. “Child” may also describe a relationship with a parent, such as sons and daughters of any age.

Transgender Day of Remembrance
November 20, 2013 in the World

Transgender Day of Remembrance takes place on November 20, 2013. Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR) is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia, or the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and acts to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. The Transgender Day of Remembrance was founded in 1998 by Gwendolyn Ann Smith, a transgender graphic designer, columnist, and activist, to memorialize the murder of Rita Hester in Allston, Massachusetts. Since its inception, TDoR has been held annually on 20 November, and has slowly evolved from the web-based project started by Smith into an international day of action. Typically, a TDoR memorial includes a reading of the names of those who lost their lives during the previous year and may include other actions, such as candlelight vigils, art shows, food drives, film screenings, marches, among others. The Transgender Day of Remembrance is the culmination of Transgender Awareness Week.

Black Awareness Day
November 20, 2013 in Brazil

Black Awareness Day takes place on November 20, 2013. The Day of Black Awareness (“Dia da Consciência Negra” in Portuguese) is celebrated annually in Brazil. It is a day on which to reflect upon the injustices of slavery and to celebrate the contributions to society and to the nation by Brazilian citizens of African descent. It takes place during the Week of Black Awareness. The day is marked on the anniversary of the death of Zumbi dos Palmares (1655–1695), the last leader of the Quilombo dos Palmares. Members of the organization “Black Movement” organize educational and fun events involving mainly children of African descent. Their focus during these events is to dissolve the perception of Africans’ inferiority in society. Other “hot topics” in the black community during the Day of Black Awareness are the assimilation of African-Brazilian laborers with Caucasian-Brazilian and other laborers, ethnic identity, and black pride. Black Awareness Day has been celebrated since the 1960s and has only amplified its events in the last few years. Black Awareness Day used to be celebrated on 13th of May (the date of abolition of slavery in Brazil). However, Afro-Brazilians asked to change it to 20 of November to honor Zumbi’s death.

Absurdity Day 2013

November 20 is National Absurdity Day, the one day a year you have an excuse to let loose your inner weirdo, make absolutely no sense, and act completely and ridiculously absurd. Why? Perhaps the unknown creator of this strange day was stressed out, bored with day-to-day life, or had just worn out his or her brain trying to make sense of everything all the time.

Celebrate this day in an absurd manner. Don’t sit back waiting for something absurd to happen. Rather, seek out things to do that are somewhat, if not wholly, illogical. Have fun with it. But, whatever you do, don’t try to make sense with it.

How far you take your absurd antics is up to you. Unfortunately, tomorrow isn’t Erase Your Memory of Yesterday Day, so be careful with your absurdity.

International Men’s Day
November 19, 2013 in the World

International Men’s Day takes place on November 19, 2013. International Men’s Day (IMD) is an annual international event which is celebrated in over 60 countries. Inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago, the day and its events find support from a variety of individuals and groups in Australia, the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe and Africa.

The objectives of celebrating an International Men’s Day include focusing on men’s and boys’ health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care. The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values. According to its creators, International Men’s Day is a time to promote positive aspects of male identity based on the premise that ‘males of all ages respond more energetically to positive role models than they do to negative gender stereotyping’.

During past years the method of commemorating International Men’s Day included public seminars, classroom activities at schools, radio and television programs, peaceful displays and marches, debates, panel discussions, award ceremonies, and art displays. The manner of observing this annual day is optional, and any appropriate forums can be used.

World Toilet Day
November 19, 2013 in the World

World Toilet Day takes place on November 19, 2013. This international day of action aims to break the taboo around toilets and draw attention to the global sanitation challenge. 2.5 billion people do not have access to a clean and safe toilet.

In 2001, the World Toilet Organization declared its founding day, 19 November, as World Toilet Day. Since then, 19 November has been observed globally by its member organizations. The World Toilet Organization is a global non-profit organization committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide. WTO focuses on toilets instead of water, which receives more attention and resources under the common subject of sanitation.

A toilet is a sanitation fixture used primarily for the disposal of human excrement and urine, often found in a small room referred to as a toilet/bathroom/lavatory. Diseases, including cholera which still affects some 3 million people each year, can be largely prevented when effective sanitation and water treatment prevents fecal matter from contaminating waterways, groundwater and drinking water supplies. Infected water supplies can be treated to make the water safe for consumption and use.

According to The Global Water Supply and Sanitation Assessment 2000 by the World Health Organization, 40% of the global population does not have access to “good” “excreta disposal facilities”—they live mostly in Asia and Africa. There are efforts being made to design simple effective squat toilets for these people.

“It’s dead, Jim!”

It threw a rod, and for the six grand it would take to fix it, I could put a down payment on a car and still have money left over. But yeah… everything is loading up fast. So I’m cancelling Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 😦

We were going to maybe go out on Turkey day, no invites yet… so… that’s off up in the air.

Secret Santa stuff, sorry, I’m not going to be able to afford it. Trips to Starbase Indy, off the itinerary. A Klingon Christmas Carol, off the itinerary. And other cute holiday stuff I was looking forward to.

No. It’s not the end of the world. I know that. But it’s just overwhelming me right now. I’ll be fine in a few days…once my cold bug starts to go away, I should be able to think clearly, it’s just right now. F U C K ! ya know?

Ya’ll take care!! Hugs
and send ’em back if you have any! thank you 🙂

flashback to Friday’s fun… :P

2 Comments

So I said I’d blog about what happened, etc.

Early morning, up and at ’em! Well I was. Hubs was dragging a bit. We finally got on the road, and then we hit rush hour traffic in Indy. (I wasn’t allowed to say, ‘I told you so.’) So we were running late to my first appt, and missed it completely. No worries, my doc ordered it done again-blood draw, and so it still happened. And then the next round of tests started, X-rays, and a lot of other fun stuff. ugh 😦

Anywho- I’ve found out I have some more tests that I’m being scheduled for, and then a surgery asap. Yeah, I should’ve had the surgery right after the heart attack. Um oops! ~sighs~

Then we were heading home, made a stop by dad in law’s and he was nice. (Shocked the hell outta me!) And then once again on the road again, only thing is, the car started acting up- hub’s car, not mine. And then we stopped on the side of the road right outside the town we live in. Yep, fun fun fun… anywho he took off running to the house about 1.6 miles, and then he drove my car to the tow truck/mechanic’s shop. Yay! As I’m waiting on the road, I’m watching everyone drive on by. NO One stopped! And then, as I was getting all…kersplutzed, and being cheered up by face book friends, a police officer finally stopped by. He called the auto shop and asked them to hurry up the tow. So that was nice. And he was nice, he was wearing some of the Wounded Wear clothes, yeah, he’s a fellow veteran too. Really nice. He stayed with me for a bit to make sure I was okay. Women alone on the road, not a good thing. Especially when I told him what my friends were doing to cheer me, are there zombies? Do you have a defensible position? He was cracking up with me. I had informed my friends, good news; it’s not raining, snowing and no zombies. LOL So yeah, we started talking about my chances if zombies did show up. BTW hubs has informed me, in this area, they’d be the slow stupid zombies, I’d be fine if I kept my mouth shut. LOL 😛

So in a nutshell, that was Friday! lots of tests and a surgery being scheduled, dad in law being nice (still freaking me out), car died and is currently in the shop, and then when I made it home, I was out of it. Sick. Oh yeah, my doctor did tell me I was sick with a bug, but didn’t prescribe any other antibiotics. ~sighs~ Saturday and Sunday, I was in bed the whole weekend, my body hurt, my temp was up, and then it went up even more, and yeah. So once again, no writing on my nano was accomplished. ~sighs~

Today power is out at certain places, lots of wind damage that we saw driving in this morning. And some schools were on a two hour delay. Please be careful out there.
We’re commuting and boy is that fun. LOL I have to be at work early this week, so hubs had to get up early and it was a giggle fest in the car, we were being silly and arguing over stupid stuff. Mainly that I wasn’t driving like he would. Oh well… 😛 And I have a ride to his business later, and I have two hours there to wait till he gets off work. So reading or writing?? Guess? LOL The one thing I don’t like about being a one car family, the wait times, esp when I still feel yucky sick.

Anywho, that’s been the flashback and I included in the weekend. Except for Sunday when all the freaking alarms in town kept going off. They don’t blow them for just tornadoes, but any type of bad weather. It didn’t look that bad to me. Well after driving through Marion on the way to work this morning, damn, the wind was bad. Signage out all over the place, roofs turn off of buildings, trees broke in half all over the place. ugh…

Please take care, drive carefully!

Occult Day 2013
November 18, 2013 in the World

Occult Day takes place on November 18, 2013. The occult is “knowledge of the hidden”. In common English usage, occult refers to “knowledge of the paranormal”, as opposed to “knowledge of the measurable”, usually referred to as science.

The term is sometimes taken to mean knowledge that “is meant only for certain people” or that “must be kept hidden”, but for most practising occultists it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences. The terms esoteric and arcane have very similar meanings, and in most contexts the three terms are interchangeable.

Occult also describes a number of magical organizations or orders, the teachings and practices taught by them, and to a large body of current and historical literature and spiritual philosophy related to this subject.

Homemade Bread Day
November 17, 2013 in the World

Today is Homemade Bread Day! Nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the air.

Bread has been made for thousands of years. Estimates date it’s origin back to 5000-10,000 B.C. Modern day lifestyles has relegated homemade bread to the world of specialty baking and holiday baking. People just don’t have time to bake home made bread. We turn to a quick “run” to bakeries and grocery stores, for our bread needs. The arrival of automatic breadmakers has created a small resurgence of home made breads, especially specialty breads.

The purpose of this day is easy to understand.— to make home made bread, and to encourage you and me to make tasty and nutritious bread. So, take a little time out of your busy day, and make some bread. Your nose, your taste buds, and your whole family will be glad you did.
