National Holiday

Today was an important national holiday – important to my family at least.  Today was National Ice Cream Day.  Important in my family because of a deep and abiding love of the entire family of all flavors of ice cream, except the dreaded butter brickle (it is a long story involving my father getting what he thought was a great deal on ice cream, buying a huge amount of it, and then making us eat it even though it tasted like chalk).

One other little thing – 45 years ago today, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were on the moon – the highest achievement of our species.
