Motorist Consideration Monday, Cherry Popsicle Day, more

August 26th, 2013, is Motorist Consideration Monday, Toilet Paper Day, National Dog Day, Women's Equality Day, Heroes' Day (Namibia), and National Cherry Popsicle Day.

Just for today, let someone merge into your lane rather than speeding up. Use your turn signals. Maintain a proper following distance. Keep your horn and your gestures to yourself. You've successfully followed the spirit of Motorist Consideration Monday! Was that so hard? How about doing the same again tomorrow?

For some mysterious reason, today is Toilet Paper Day. Be grateful we've progressed beyond Corn Cob Day.

National Dog Day is the perfect time to show love for man's best friend, as the saying goes. Shimmer, the Official Blog Dog of the Trend Police, will have a nice chunk of burger at dinner time.

Women's Equality Day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in the United States, in 1920. Representative Bella Abzug of New York inspired Congress to designate this holiday in 1971.

Namibia observes Heroes' Day on August 26th, remembering when the first bullet was fired in their fight for liberty in 1966.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere we're still enjoying the dog days of summer. Make the most of today with a cold treat in honor of National Cherry Popsicle Day.
