Cookbook Launch Day

When : Always October 12th

Cookbook Launch Day is a little known day designed to launch a new cookbook. Schools, churches, clubs and a wide range of organizations ask members to donate a recipe for creating of their own cookbook. Working with a publisher, they put a neat cookbook together filled with cherished recipes, and publish it for members and friends. It is often used as a fund raiser.

Creating and launching a new cookbook is an exciting event. There's always a few new recipes to discover. And, it encourages us to try new foods on family and friends. Cooks will tell you that you can't have too many cookbooks.

If you've never been a part of launching a new cookbook, use today to get the idea started in your local group. We also suggest that you use today as a good excuse to buy a new cookbook. While you're at it, buy an extra one for a friend!

Old Farmers Day

When : Always October 12th

Old Farmers Day honors the hard labor of farmers throughout American history. Early American culture was heavily a farming culture. Early settlers cleared fields and pristine woods, to farm the rich land. They brought seeds and farming methods with them. They found new seeds, and learned new methods along the way. Many of those new farming methods came from Native Americans, who were already farming the land. Most notably, was the concept of hilling, or mounding soil.

The month of October is a very appropriate month to celebrate and honor farmers. At this time, the harvest is largely complete. It means that farmers can take a break from their labors, to enjoy this celebration.

A farmers' work is long and hard. It certainly doesn't make a person rich. It has its good years, and its bad ones. There is no guarantee of a good crop. Weather, pests, and disease problems often prove disastrous. But, through it all, farmers have persevered. And, their ceaseless hard work sets an example for all.

As Americans, we tip our hat to all farmers for their contributions to American culture, values,society, and the economy. Happy Old Farmers Day!

Moment of Frustration Day

When : October 12th

Moment of Frustration Day is truely a frustrating day. We believe one of the most important reasons for today, is the opportunity to let your frustrations out. If you are not frustrated, count your blessings. Don't use today to add to your frustrations. And whatever you do today, don't find new things to be frustrated about.

Are you frustrated? 'Cmon, let it out! We've got some suggestions on how to ease that moment of frustration in a harmless, healthy manner. Here are just some of them:

  • Go for a walk When faced with a frustrating situation, walk away from the situation. Time and distance, will often help to eliminate the frustration. The walk allows you to think about how to resolve it.
  • Take it outside and yell. Go out the back door, and do a little yelling. We suggest you do it away from others. Afterwards, you will feel much better.
  • Let your feelings out... If you need to cry, then cry.
  • Think.... consider what will ease or eliminate those frustrations. How can you resolve the problem?
  • Talk... let your feelings out to someone you can confide in. If it's a frustration about a person, talk with them. Let them know how you feel.
  • Seek help. Use a friend, a family member, or a professional to help you.

Important Note: We encourage you to let your frustrations out in a constructive way,  but never in an angered way. Rather, use this day to release frustrations and anger in a safe and sensible manner. Also, drinking and drugs never solves things. They can only make matters worse.

Here's wishing you a very Happy Moment of Frustration Day. As an old song goes, Don't Worry, Be Happy!
