***THE OFFICIAL FRIDAY SILLINESS THREAD***

National Freedom Day

When : Always February 1st

National Freedom Day celebrates freedom from slavery, and recognizes that America is a symbol of freedom.

National Freedom Day was established in 1948 to remind us that America stands for, and is a symbol of freedom for all people. The roots of this special day come directly from the end of slavery and the signing of the 13th amendment outlawing slavery.

Celebrate this day by reflecting upon your own freedoms that you enjoy by being fortunate enough to be in America. Millions of people in the world are not free.


Origin of National Freedom Day:

Major Richard Robert Wright Sr., a former slave, created National Freedom Day. He believed that there should be a day when freedom for all Americans is celebrated. President Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery on February 1, 1865. So, February 1st was chosen to celebrate National Freedom Day.

On June 30, 1948, President Harry Truman signed a the bill proclaiming February 1st as National Freedom Day.

A single glass of wine at night could mean a peaceful, uninterrupted night's sleep. Clare Valley vintners in South Australia, which primarily produce Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Grigio wines, have developed a new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic. It is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night ... The new wine will be marketed as "PINO MORE"

I’m reaching out on behalf of a fishing buddy of mine who needs some help!

His wife told him to go out and get some of those pills that would help him get an erection.

When he came back, he handed her some diet pills.

Anyway, he’s looking for a place to live. Let me know if you have a spare room or can help.

Bible Study

God does have a sense of humor!

Today’s Short Reading From The Bible from the Book of Genesis...

And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth.

Then he made the earth round ...

My Dr. asked if I was “regular”. I said “yes. I urinate at EXACTLY 7Am every morning. And I defecate each day EXACTLY 7:30 each morning.” He asked, “So what’s your problem?” I said I don’t wake up until 8:30.
