National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
How sweet it is, an entire day to celebrate one of the best ice cream flavors ever! In a dish or in a cone, hard ice cream or soft ice cream, you just can't go wrong with chocolate. That's probably why today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. As if we really need a reason to indulge in this cool, sweet treat.
Today is also Daniel Boone Day
This week is National Fishing and Boating Week

--Charles Caleb Colton
Clear Nail Polish:
1. Keep an eyeglass screw in place. If your specs are a bit wobbly, tighten the screws and top them with a dollop of polish.
2. Secure buttons. Apply a thin layer of polish to the center of a button to keep the thread from coming loose.
3. Avoid rust stains in the bathroom. Coat the bottom of a shaving-cream can to fend off rings on the ledge of the tub.
4. Seal an envelope. When a flap won’t stay stuck, find closure with clear polish.
5. Extend the life of jewelry. Paint a thin coat onto a costume bauble to prevent it from losing its luster.
