September 28 – Drink Beer Day

 

Let me start off this post by saying I do not drink alcohol, but I know there are a lot of you who do so I am going to post about this holiday for you.

I just ask one thing from you if you drink

***PLEASE DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE***

Today is Drink Beer Day!

Raise a pint and toast to one of the oldest and most popular beverages in human history.

There are hundreds of different varieties of beer, but they all fall into one of two categories—ale or lager. Historians believe that humans have been producing beer, or some form it, since the Neolithic Era. The oldest continuously operating brewery in the world is in the Bavaria region of Germany. The Weihenstephan brewery began producing beer in the year 1040. Today, the company exports fourteen different brews all over the world.

There’s really only one way to celebrate Drink Beer Day! Gather a group of friends for a beer tasting at home or at your favorite bar. Be sure to check for promotions and giveaways that might be going on in your area. Cheers!

Air Conditioning

 
 

 
I don’t ever write a post like this but, the weather were I am is getting very humid. We live in an upstairs apartment with no air conditioning. There have been times during the summer the APARTMENT has reached over a 100 degrees, but outside is in the 90’s. It’s crazy.
 
Everyone thinks if you live in California there is no need for air conditioning. Back in the day it may have been true, but with all the buildings that have gone up over the years we just don’t get a breeze anymore. Sleeping is horrendous.
 
So anyway my point is this portable air conditioner is a great deal. If you have a chance take a look and seriously think about it. It’s on easy pay which is another advantage.
 
Have a Cool!!! summer.

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month - Get moving!May 1st – 31st is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.

What a great time to promote the benefits of physical activity for adults.

Getting active increases your chances of living longer and can help you:

   *Control your blood pressure, blood sugar, and     weight
   *Raise your “good” cholesterol
   *Prevent heart disease, colorectal cancer, and     type 2 diabetes

Here are some tips to help you get active:

  *Aim for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate activity a week. This     includes things like walking fast, dancing, or biking.

  *Do muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days a week. Be sure to     strengthen all major muscle groups including the legs, hips, back, chest,     stomach, shoulders, and arms.

It’s also the perfect time to teach your children a healthy lifestyle and help combat childhood obesity by getting your child more physically active and interested in sports.

Getting your child involved in soccer, t-ball, flag football, or gymnastics, etc., can help them build motor skills, encourage a healthy lifestyle and continued physical activity as they get older. Although some parents may want to avoid the competitive environment, it’s important to remember most youth sports for younger kids are non-competitive.

Unfortunately, around age 9 is when many sports begin to get competitive. If your child isn’t interested in competitive sports take this month to find a sport or league that can get them more active. Check your local YMCA, schools, and church leagues.

March Madness

“March Madness” was the annual tournament of high school boys basketball teams, sponsored by the Illinois High School Association, grew from a small invitational affair in 1908 to a statewide institution with over 900 schools competing by the late 1930′s.

“March Madness” was a phrase coined by Henry V. Porter in 1939 describing a basketball tournament for Illinois High School. The phrase was first used during NCAA coverage in 1982 by Brent Musburger causing a legal battle as insane as the playoffs.

NCAA and the Illinois High School Assoc. jointly hold the registered trademark for the term “March Madness”.

During the tournament’s “Golden Era” of the 1940′s and 1950′s, “March Madness” became the popular name of the event. It was an era of some of Illinois’ most legendary teams, including the undefeated 1944 Taylorville squad and Mt. Vernon’s unstoppable back-to-back champions of 1949 and 1950. But the one champion remembered more than any other is tiny Hebron, a school of only 98 students, which won the tournament in 1952.

It wasn’t until the early 1980′s that fans of NCAA basketball began to use the term to describe the playoff series that takes place at the college/university level.
