Water a Flower Day

Date When Celebrated: Always on May 30

Water a Flower Day is a reminder to water your flowers…all of them.

Sure, we know that this day reads Water “a” Flower (singular) Day. It clearly indicates that a flower should be watered. But, in today’s world of equal rights and non-discrimination regulations, how can you single out one particular flower to water? Even if you can decide upon a certain flower, wouldn’t the rest of your flowers get upset and file a class action lawsuit?

So please, for your own sake, water all of your flowers today. As a gardener, this author suggests you make your flowers very happy with you, by adding a liquid fertilizer to the water. They will reward you with faster growth, and bigger blooms!

Have a Happy Water a Flower Day!

Origin of Water a Flower Day:
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. But, we’re glad someone created this day. It’s late spring, and chances are, my flowers need a drink.

 

 

Memorial Day Observance

The Arcadia Theater will be closed this coming Monday, May 28th. (We will reopen on Tuesday at 10 am)

We are looking forward to picnicking with family and friends and HONORing all of the service men and women who are currently serving or made the greatest sacrifice for their country.

We thank you all for your dedication to your country! 

 

Pure Country Music Coming to the Theater………

Pure country music happens when Terry Lee Goffee and Josie Waverly bring the music of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline to life. In the finale when the two iconic voices sing together, it is a memorable highlight.

Terry Lee’s tribute to Johnny Cash has taken him all across the U.S., Canada, Ireland and the UK. In 2009, he was selected to provide the moves for the Johnny Cash character in Guitar Hero 5.

In June 2003, Goffee did two performances of “Train of Love” to tribute Johnny Cash in Nashville, TN.  “Johnny’s brother Tommy and sister Joanne Cash Yates attended the show. They were very complimentary after the show. Tommy said his brother would be proud and Joanne said that I paid tribute to Johnny with honor. It was a great boost to my confidence. I came away thinking I was doing something right,” Goffee said.

When Josie Waverly interprets the legendary Patsy Cline’s music, the audience will be able to close their eyes and imagine they are at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville in the 1960s. Waverly will be singing the signature Cline songs, “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Lovesick Blues,” “There He Goes,” “Crazy,” “Leavin’ on Your Mind” and “Sweet Dreams.”

Waverly has performed all over the United States as a headliner and as an opening act for many of Nashville’s leading entertainers such as Tim McGraw, Charlie Daniels, Loretta Lynn, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, and others.

She also wrote and stars in “My Gal Patsy,” a 90-minute Patsy Cline musical tribute show.

National Brown Bag It Day

Date When: Always on May 25

Welcome to National Brown Bag It Day. The brown bag has been around for a long, long time. It seems like just yesterday, everyone was “brown bagging it”, taking their lunch to work or school in a brown paper bag. My how times have changed. Nowadays, very few people brown bag it.

If you extend this line of thought to include in the definition of “brown baggers”, people who carry their lunch in a lunch bucket or a lunch pail back in the day, that would include most people.

Then, somewhere along the way, Brown Bagging your lunch grew out of style. Busy, working moms did not have the time in the morning to pack a good lunch. School lunch programs were initiated or expanded, to the point where almost all kids bought their lunch at school. After all, bringing your lunch is not considered “cool”.

Today is the perfect day to go “retro” if only for a day, and brown bag your lunch. Nostalgia aside, there are good reasons to brown bag it. First of all, it can save a lot of money, over buying lunch on a daily basis. Second, homemade or foods packed from home always taste better. In addition, Mom or Dad can pack a lunch that is more healthy and nutritious. That’s a lot of good reasons to brown bag it. Now, if we can only get people to look at brown bagging as being the “cool” thing to do.

National Brown Bag It Day. is the perfect day to go back in time and brown bag it. Because it is a special holiday, it will be the “cool” thing to do, if only for a day.


Origin of National Brown Bag It Day:

We found no historical information on the origin of this special day. The author is anonymous.

This day appears to be very recent, dating back to approximately 2013.

This day is called a “National” day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.

 

     

National Wine Day

Date When: Always on May 25

Tap the keg. Crack open a bottle. Today is National Wine Day.

People have been drinking wine since the early days of man (and woman). There are plenty of references to wine in the Bible. The wine has thankfully been around for thousands of years.

There are many varieties of grapes, giving us the opportunity to make and enjoy, hundreds of different varieties of wines. Made from fermented grapes, wine is easy to make. As a result, there are many home vintners among us.

While you don’t have to drink wine today to celebrate this day, it certainly would not be as much fun.

It is so easy to celebrate National Wine Day. Here are a few ideas:

  • Have a glass or two of wine.
  • Go on a winery tour.
  • Make some homemade wine.
  • Have a wide variety that you have never tried before.

Important: Remember, if you do drink, don’t drive. Always have a designated driver.


Origin of National Wine Day:

We found no historical information on the origin of this special day. The author is anonymous.

But, we certainly can imagine how this day came to be. Imagine being at a party. The wine is flowing. After a few glasses, someone declares National Wine Day into existence.

This day is called a “National” day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
