Lots to celebrate today

Looking for something to celebrate? Today is your lucky day.

• Today is Whatever Happened to Gary Puckett Day?

• Today is Have A Bad Day Day, for all the people who can't stand being told constantly to have a nice day

• Today is National Alligator Wrestling Day.

• Today is National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day.

• Today is National Pencil Appreciation Day. (The pencil was invented in 1895)


Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettyburg Address on this day in 1863. (So, you're saying he didn't write the speech with a pencil???)

Pop-Tarts were introduced on this day in 1965.

And, if you choose not to celebrate, but just prefer to wish a celebrity a Happy Birthday, your choices are plenty....

  • Larry King (75)
  • Dick Cavett (72) (Why would I think he is older than Larry King?)
  • Ted Turner (70)
  • Calvin Klein (66) (Is that all?!)
  • Ahmad Rashad (59)
  • Ann Curry (52)
  • Meg Ryan (47)
  • Jodie Foster (46)
  • Billy Currington (35) (That one's for you Connie)

So see people? There are plenty of things to celebrate today. Have a happy one!
