Happy Pickle Day!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

National Pickle Day is observed annually on November 14. The holiday has been celebrated for nearly 70 years, starting with encouragement from the Pickle Packers Association in 1949.

The term pickle comes from the Dutch word pekel, meaning brine. In the United States, the word pickle typically refers to cucumbers that are preserved in brine (salted water) with spices and herbs. In general, however, pickles are vegetables, fruits and other food items that are preserved in brine, salt and oil, or vinegar. The process is called pickling, and it kills bacteria in food, either by immersing them in an acidic solution, such as vinegar, or by fermentation. This increases the lifespan of the food item and also changes its texture and taste.

For thousands of years, pickles have been a popular food dating back to 2030 B.C. It is believed that ancient Egyptians were the first ones to use the pickling process by preserving cucumbers brought from India. The Romans believed in the healing powers of pickles, while sources suggest that Cleopatra credited her beauty to the consumption of pickles. Julius Caesar fed pickles to his troops believing that they lent physical and spiritual strength.

The phrase “getting into a pickle” is also sometimes used for when someone gets into trouble.

But, never fear, you’ll be as cool as a cucumber with these Amaretto pickles!

Armistice Day

Hello All 🙂

It’s Armistice Day today, and in light of it being 100 years since the end of World War 1 it seems appropriate to do a connection on the Armed Forces traits and eyes we have in Amaretto!

“Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning—the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918. An American artillery gun from the 11th Field Artillery Regiment named “Calamity Jane” fired a single shot at this time, known as the closing shot of the war. The armistice initially expired after a period of 36 days. A formal peace agreement was only reached when the Treaty of Versailles was signed the following year.” – Read more about Armistice day HERE

We have the Armed Forces Awareness eye, released back in 2013 on the horses – Click HERE for more information:

I hope you are all having a peaceful Sunday and see you all in the groups!

National Forget-Me-Not Day

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is National Forget-Me-Not Day which is observed annually on November 10. Created in 1921 to remind Americans of the sacrifices returning soldiers have made of body, blood and limb, National Forget-Me-Not Day originally raised funds for services where there were none.

This day even has its own particular flower, the Forget-Me-Not.

The Alpine Forget-Me-Not is the official state flower of Alaska. The forget-me-not grows well all throughout the open, rocky places, high in the mountains of Alaska.

 

 

HOW TO OBSERVE
Remember to thank our disabled veterans. Use #ForgetMeNotDay to post on social media.

HISTORY
Forget-Me-Not Day hearkens back to The Great War and the wounded returning soldiers who continued to require care long after the war was over. The wounded veterans’ plight was not new, but the government was unprepared for the number of returning wounding requiring attention. Very few services and organizations existed to provide the care and support the veterans needed. A movement to remember and deliver services to returning soldiers began in earnest in 1921.

Judge Robert S. Marx called on the nation to establish Forget-Me-Not Day to remind the country of their sacrifices and raised funds for disabled soldiers through the sale of forget-me-nots. Injured during the during The first published occurrence of this day was on December 17, 1921.

Injured on November 10, 1918, during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, Marx returned to the United States from his injuries. A lawyer before he was a soldier, he took up his practice once more and soon was elected judge. His interest in veteran’s affairs became apparent. From fundraising to speeches, Marx made the rounds. In 1920, the Disabled American Veterans of the World War was founded and headed by Judge Marx himself. The first National Caucus was held on September 25, 1920. It was through the DAVWW in 1922 that the first official Forget-Me-Not Day fundraising campaign launched on November 11.

Throughout the 1920s, various days in November were selected to observe National Forget-Me-Not Day, including November 11 now established as Veteran’s Day or Armistice Day. Another well-known Forget-Me-Not Day is September 26th. Also known as Argonne Day in honor of the decisive battle through the Meuse-Argonne Forest.

Today, the organization that founded National Forget-Me-Not Day is named the Disabled American Veterans, supporting all disabled veterans.

And here are some beautiful Amaretto Forget-Me-Not breedables that you can add to your collection.

 

 

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend.  Happy Breeding!!
