NATIONAL VITAMIN C DAY

National Vitamin C Day on April 4th each year shares all the ways vitamin C nurtures and benefits our health, inside and out!

While Vitamin C is widely recognized for warding off colds, the vitamin is also clinically proven to be a powerhouse in other areas of health, too. For example, Vitamin C may reduce blood pressure and potentially lower the risk of heart disease. Those at risk of gout can lower that risk by increasing their intake of Vitamin C.

Topically, Vitamin C keeps skin healthy by protecting it from oxidative damage caused by daily exposure to light, heat, and pollution. The popularity of topical vitamin C products has risen dramatically.

With the right product, adding Vitamin C to your beauty regimen can brighten your skin, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy collagen production. Vitamin C brightens just about any health routine.

With today’s health concerns this is an easy way boost your immune system. With colds, flu’s, and of course Coronavirus, your immune system is very important. A vital immune system has so far helped me avoid catching the rounds of illnesses every year. With other health conditions making a simple cold or flu take on new meaning.

I take both a good multi vitamin and in today’s world I’ve added extra sources to my regime. Cranberry, pineapple, tart cherry, and others in place of sodas for instance, help me stay away from my Dr’s office.

While I take all prevention guidelines seriously, this addition while not a free pass makes me more confident in my immune system that for years has helped me avoid catching viruses being passed around.

WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY

World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD), on April 2nd each year shines a bright light on a growing global health crisis.

National Autism Association
National Autism Association

According to the National Autism Association, Autism affects 1 in 59 children. The bio-neurological developmental disability usually presents itself by the age of three, and it’s more prevalent in boys than girls.

As children with autism grow older, they face all sorts of obstacles. Because many don’t speak or use social cues as you or I do, they become targets for bullies or are excluded altogether. Children with autism are also vulnerable to drowning because they wander from their homes and schools. Due to their inability to communicate, they cannot tell someone their name or where they live, either.

Additionally, as adults, they are more likely to unemployed or underemployed.
However, resources are available for families and schools to help keep children safe and to support them lead happy and healthy lives. 

Visit the National Autism Association website for resources, guides and tips for families and schools.
The day also focuses on the growing need for programs designed to support those with autism now and in the future. 

HOW TO OBSERVE #WorldAutismAwarenessDay or #WAAD

National Autism Association website accepts donations, provides information and training.


Due to health concerns this this year will be recognized through more online avenues than in person. Throughout the day, organizations hold events supporting autism awareness. Attend an event and show your support for someone you know. Share your story and make your voice heard. 

While the day also celebrates the stories and lives of those with autism, it’s also important to remember that autism is a life long condition with varying degrees of severity. It’s important to continue to support research for treatment and therapies that will improve the lives of those with autism. Speak out about autism to help eliminate the stigma associated with it.

Use #WorldAutismDay to share on social media. 

Reconciliation Day is also observed today.

WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY HISTORY

The United Nations General Assembly declared April 2nd as World Autism Awareness day in 2008 to draw attention to the growing need for innovative programs designed to support those with autism.

Mar 29 NATIONAL NEVADA DAY

On March 29, National Nevada Day ushers The Battle Born State.
Joining West Virginia as the only other state to be granted statehood during the Civil War, Nevada is a study in contrasts.

The mostly desert landscape is nearly devoid of trees. With vast open spaces, dramatic gorges, majestic mountains and windswept rock formations, the state transforms quickly.

Nevada may have once been the loneliest state and is home to the loneliest highway. After the Comstock Lode discovery of silver in 1859, the population grew dramatically. By 1864 when the state was admitted to the union, Nevada lacked the 60,000 to be granted statehood and didn’t gain the residents until 1880. It would even lose population according to the U.S. Census Bureau and not achieve the qualifying numbers again until 1910.

Lonely or not, Nevada was the first state to vote for the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery.
Nevada wasn’t lonely for long. The population exploded when two railroads connected in 1905 and established a town called Las Vegas and first platted in 1910. It would be 30 years before the first resort would open. Casinos and glamour would soon follow.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY

What do the color green, parades and March 17th have in common?  Of course, it is St.Patrick’s Day (also known as the Feast of St Patrick).

As most of the United States is aware by now the Coronavirus is here. Due to that unfortunate circumstance most all events, parades, parties, etc have been canceled for social distancing. As we all deal with the difficulties and disruptions in our lives, I believe these measures will help prevent this from becoming much worse.

While our health is something we cannot put a price on, the financial losses unfortunately have a figure for us. My husband like so many others is a musician. He has just lost every job scheduled over the next two months. We like so many are dealing with these issues. To that end a website to provide information is available. This is strictly for musicians and artists looking for information.  I do not own, participate or in any way responsible for it’s content.  I have not read it contents entirely, but I’m sure I will be doing so with my husband as we navigate these next few months.

Please stay safe, follow the guidelines being issued for your health and safety. Things like Coronavirus are no match for the resolve of people fighting it.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated by millions of people across the globe.  People wear the color green, drink green beverages and decorate houses and businesses in shamrocks.  In fact, the wearing of the green is a tradition that dates back to a story written about St. Patrick in 1726.  St. Patrick (c. AD 385–461) was known to use the shamrock to illustrate the Holy Trinity and to have worn green clothing.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Remember to wear green. Use #StPatricksDay to post on social media.

Great time to wear some Green to dinner, make Corned Beef with Cabbage, or Irish Skillet
for dinner. Follow up with an Irish Coffee. As most bars and restaurants will not be open due to Coronavirus, you can make your own green beer by adding a few drops of food coloring to a light-colored beer…

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY HISTORY

The Feast of St. Patrick started in the early 17 century. The day marks the death of St. Patrick and was chosen as an official Christian feast day and is observed by the Catholic Church. The day is also a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.

NATIONAL JEWEL DAY

National Jewel Day is observed March 13th of every year. While this day may be a day to give or receive jewelry, it could also be a day to recognize jewelers.   It may also be a day to wear those gems you may already have! 

Jewelry is like finding the perfect dress. You know the one I’m talking about. It can be new or an older favorite. When you see yourself in the mirror it enlivens your spirit, gives your confidence a boost, and no matter what you have a day better than others.

Favorite jewelry is the same be it a lucky pair of earrings, your special necklace or a ring that reminds of happy times. These are often a tangible link to a memory you hold dear. This is why we both buy and receive jewelry.

I was born in October which makes my birthstone an Opal. Now I’m extremely fair-skinned with red hair. I feel better when I wear Blue Topaz that enhances my blue eyes. Indeed I often get more compliments on my blue eyes when I wear it.

My wedding ring reminds me of all the happiness my husband and I have shared. Sure it hasn’t always been rosy, but I wouldn’t choose anything different. We just celebrated another year together knowing that we are even stronger today than when we started. I kept my original, but I got an upgrade on our Anniversary! See below.

Anniversary upgrade

So find your favorites. Whether you receive it as a gift or buy it yourself, these are the nudges to our memories. Best of all they can be shared and passed on to the next generation. Hopefully, some of the memories and stories go with them. Before you know it you have heirlooms worth so much more than mere money.

One last tip I learned as a jeweler. A good piece of jewelry can last as long as the memories tied to them. The real thing with proper care can be passed on for better than hundreds of years. Make sure you consult a professional for cleanings, repair, and periodic checks. Some of the things I’ve heard used to clean for instance would make you cringe. I’ve also seen both gems and setting ruined from these practices.

NATIONAL OREGON DAY

On March 8, National Oregon Day recognizes the 33rd state to join the union.

Today join the International Women’s Day celebrations.

Also known as The Beaver State, Oregon’s climate enjoys the warm Pacific air west of the Cascade Mountains and in the lush Willamette Valley. More extreme temperature ranges are experienced in Oregon’s high desert.

Populations of Nez Perce, Chinook, Mollalla, and others settled along the Columbia River Gorge, Klamath Basin, and points east. Many of the first European explorers to arrive sought the elusive Northwest Passage
The Corps of Discovery Expedition followed the Colombia River Gorge, reaching the Pacific Ocean in November of 1805. They would winter at Ft. Clatsop. Soon, pioneers would follow along what would become the Oregon Trail.
The gorge was created from volcanic lava flows and glacial floods.

Windsurfers flock to the Columbia due to the powerful, steady winds off of the Cascade Mountains. Kayaking, biking, hiking, skiing and many other outdoor adventures can be found up and down the Gorge, but its icy crown is Mt. Hood. The Stratovolcano’s last eruption occurred in 1865 and was named after Lord Samuel Hood.

South along the Cascade Range, a sleeping volcano forms the mysterious Crater Lake.  A well-planned hike along the trails to the remote brilliant, blue waters of the deepest lake in the U.S. is worth the effort. The pristine volcano is a wonder to see. Eastern Oregon takes on the color of a sunset in the undulating Painted Hills near Mitchell.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

International Women’s Day on March 8th each year celebrates the social, economic, and political achievements of women around the world. The day also brings international awareness to gender parity.  According to the World Economic Forum, global gender equality is estimated to be achieved by 2133.

Gender equality is the equal access to the same rights and opportunities regardless of gender. These rights and opportunities include:

  • healthcare
  • education
  • employment / economic gain
  • pay
  • protection under the law
  • right to vote
  • free from violence

Striving for Change

Holding Political Office

Just over 100 years ago, only .2 % of the United States Congress consisted of women. Actually, the 65th Congress was comprised of a single woman. In 1916, Montana elected Republican Jeannette Rankin as the first Congresswoman to hold a federal office. Fast forward to the year 2020 and women hold 23.7% of the U.S. Congressional seats. While that might seem like progress, according to United Nations statistics, the U.S. percentage matches exactly the worldwide average for women in political office. 

Education

In many parts of the world, women are less likely to own land, a business, or attend school. Education alone is a powerful tool leading to financial independence for women. Their children reap the rewards, often for generations to come. Additionally, but when the women of a community prosper, so does the community. Educated women and girls are more likely to educate their offspring. They also have a better understanding of healthcare and understand their rights. 

Equal Pay

According to the United Nations, more than half of the world’s poorest people are women. International Women’s Day strives to bring economic power to women who aren’t allowed to work for pay or work for low wages. And despite strides in industrialized countries, there’s still work to do there, too. 

HOW TO OBSERVE #InternationalWomensDay

Around the world, organizations, communities, and individuals organize events focused on the mission of gender parity, celebrating the achievements of women worldwide and education.

  • Attend a lecture, seminar or festival
  • Organize an event 
  • Speak or perform at a local fundraiser
  • Participate in a march for women’s equal rights
  • Learn about the women who paved the way for many of the rights and freedoms we have today
  • Become involved in your local, state or national political system
  • Invite others to join you, including other women, sons, brothers, sisters, and daughters
  • Share your job skills at a local career fair
  • Celebrate all month long. It’s also National Women’s History Month.
