July 2011 is supposed to be lucky

Dear Diary:

I was sitting at my dining room table yesterday checking out my schedule on the calendar, when I realized it was almost the end of July.  It brought to mind an email I got several months ago, announcing that July would be a special month due to the fact it had 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays.  Since this would not happen for another 823 years, I should pass the message on and then would receive good luck along with a great deal of money.

Well, that is certainly one of those urban legends that circulates around and around and the email is still coming to me citing the impending influx of fortune to those who pass it on.  But in reality, it happens when any month containing 31 days, has the first fall on a Friday.  It often occurs once a year.

Next year, January and July will have the same five day repeat, only with Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  Two months in one year should be REALLY lucky!

Good Night for now.

A Visit from the Royals

Dear Diary:

I must admit I'm a royalist.  I very much liked the hype that went on in Canada with the visit by the newlyweds, Will and Kate [although I heard that protocol says we should now refer to her as Catherine].  The whirlwind trip across Canada was covered in detail by every newspaper, magazine and media group.  The royal couple won accolades for what was termed "chucking out the rules and setting a new course".

As written in the latest issue of Maclean's (July 25, 2011), the royal couple threw out the ritual and pomp.  No bowing or curtsying for them.  They participated in sports (dragon boat racing, street hockey); changed the schedule (visited Slave Lake, Alta on the spur of the moment); and spent time at every stop shaking hands and chit-chatting with the crowd.  They were perceived as just being "everyday people".  Both Will and Kate brought a relaxed, down to earth view for the future.

I always wanted to be the presenter of a flower bouquet to the Duchess.  I think I'm a little to old now to do that...but I guess I can fantasize.

Good Night for now.

Time to go on vacation

Dear Diary:

The other day I saw a trivia question that read, "Where did the bikini get its name?"  "Oh I know that one", I thought.  I was sure it was Brigitte Bardot.  I remember my Grandmother talking about her wearing a very skimpy bathing suit - the bikini.  But I was wrong.  It was designed long before Bardot wore one.

The bikini creator, Louis Reard, officially introduced the swimsuit in 1946.  He named it after Bikini Island, a place in the South Pacific where the US conducted atomic bomb testing.  He thought the bathing suit would cause a similar "explosive" reaction...and it did!  Check out this article in and see the Top 10 Bikinis in Pop Culture

I'm going on vacation for a week so decided I would put on my bikini, find a great island and work on my tan.  On this island, you can even rent a surf board and ride the waves.
Enjoy this summer weather we are finally getting.  See you next week.

Good Night for now.

Sizzling in Electric Blue

Dear Diary:

According to Wikipedia, electric blues is "a type of blues music distinguished by the amplification of the guitar, bass guitar, drums and often the harmonica."  I feel the colour of the Challenge this week, is an amplification of the colour blue!  What a great shade for the summer!
