    goodbye/fun facts....this week has been America The Beautiful Week. It’s a special time to appreciate the song “America the Beautiful” and to honor our love for this country...to reflect on the natural beauty and patriotic spirit that defines America. although it never became our national anthem...Katharine Lee Bates, wrote 'america the beautiful' when she was inspired by the stunning views from Pikes Peak, in 1893. Her words and Samuel A. Ward’s melody crystallized into the song we cherish today.

    goodbye/fun facts....national fish n chips day. it commemorates this fundamental meal of the working class throughout the United Kingdom and beyond. In the late 1800s, trawl fishing became a major part of the economic industry in the North Sea. This resulted in the growing availability of fresh fish in areas further inland in the British Isles, especially within the cities. Anyone who understands economics knows that ‘easily available’ means ‘cheaper to get your hands on’...it was cheap, very filling and highly caloric food which created an excellent foundation for a working class that held incredibly physically demanding jobs throughout the late 19th century.  throughout the 20th century the popularity grew and in the 1970's and 80's...the u.s. had many regional chippy shops and several national chains like arthur treacher's and long john silver's.

    goodbye/fun facts....When it comes to combining flavor and plant power...look no further than National Veggie Burger Day!  Packed with flavor, protein, and nutrients, veggie burgers show up at backyard barbecues, tailgate parties, and on the menus of high-class restaurants. As an alternative to burgers made from meat, veggie burgers are a great way to get those 5 servings of vegetables in! One early cultural reference to veggie burgers was shortly after the end of World War II, in a 1948 radio drama series called Let George Do It, where a character speaks about veggie burgers made of nuts and legumes. today more and more fast food restaurants offer a veggie burger option...and if you've never tried one...you might be surprised how much you like it!

    goodbye/fun facts....Shopping Cart Day...the baskets on wheels we use to journey through the aisles in a supermarket. like most inventions...The shopping cart was made out of necessity...customers had to carry around wire baskets that would become too heavy. in 1937, Sylvan Goldman, an American businessman and the owner of the Humpty Dumpty supermarket chain in Oklahoma City, came up with the idea of creating a shopping cart. Goldman was inspired by a folding chair. He placed a wire basket on the folding chair, wheeling it around his office to see if his idea was going to work.  Realizing that he may be on to something, Goldman enlisted the help of his employee, Fred Young, who was also a mechanic. by in 1947 Goldman adds a child seat to his shopping carts, solving many customers' concerns about pushing a stroller and a cart at the same time. today we used shopping carts in many other places besides grocery stores...big box stores, hardware stores, home decor stores, drug stores...

    goodbye/fun facts....Repeat Day... it’s the perfect time to plan another spa retreat, book reservations at that special restaurant, or even find a new activity that you would love to repeat in the future. Repetition is a key element in everyday life. Daily routines give us a sense of stability and direction. The arts have also used repetition as the driving force behind powerful narratives. The most popular example is the movie “Groundhog Day”...although there are many time loop movies besides GD. Some scientists believe there are benefits to having repeat experiences. For example, for a variety of reasons...sometimes we don’t fully appreciate something the first time we do it. When we repeat the experience, we have another opportunity to appreciate it. (as ashley's dance teacher used to say: "practice makes permanent")...

    goodbye/fun facts....National E-Bike Day. They’ve become increasingly popular in recent years but e-bikes have been around since 1895. The first U.S. patent for an e-bike was granted in 1895 to Ogden Bolton Jr., who invented a battery-powered electric bicycle with a hub motor mounted near the rear wheel. Almost a hundred years later, the Pedal Electric Cycle, now known as pedal-assist, was integrated into e-bikes. This changed the way e-bikes were designed and allowed riders to activate the motor by the traditional throttle or by peddling. Current e-bikes on the market range from 45 to 100+ miles per charge and on average, a 10-mile trip on a e-bike will cost around 2 cents, saving between an estimated $240 to $1,500 a year on gas costs.
