Pumpkins Have Their Day

You knew that it had to be around this time of year, but yes the PUMPKIN has it official day today. And there are many things that can be done with that pumpkin other than carving its guts out and putting it on your porch.

A great description is here of the Day’s Celebration and why can be found here. As far as what to do with all those guts that list is here, and I may just make it a list in the Knowledge Oughta Know section.

Macademia Nuts

Macadamia Nuts Have Their Day

Today is the day for these delicious nuts. My father enjoyed all nuts. He would sneak a can of peanuts or cashews or well any nut into his office. He would also get nuts for Christmas. Mom wasn’t always pleased but it was one of his private indulgences. Celebrate today by getting you some of these, or giving some to a friend, they will like you a bit more.

Also remember these are often part of ice cream flavors and various pastries. Share any experiences you may have had. Read more details on this delicious treat.
