Left-Handers Day

If you are left-handed, you know that living in a world designed for right-handed people can be quite difficult. Things like opening doors, writing in spiral notebooks, and using a computer mouse leaves you feeling awkward and frustrated.
Left-Handers Day is designed just for you in celebration of your uniqueness. If you haven't joined already, check out the Left-Handers' Club where you can join forces with thousands of other left-handed people. And who knows, maybe you'll be nominated for the Left-Hander of the Year Award!
Today is also National Filet Mignon Day
August is National Peach Month & National Goat Cheese Month & National Water Quality Month
This week is Elvis Week
