Grandma Moses Day, Acorn Squash Day, more

September 7th, 2013, is Neither Rain nor Snow Day, Grandma Moses Day, Google Commemoration Day, Independence Day (Brazil), National Acorn Squash Day, and Salami Day.

Neither Rain nor Snow Day honors those who deliver the U.S. mail. The New York City Post Office has the following inscription on their building, adapted from Herodotus: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Sadly, the technology that allows you to read this blog is contributing to the downfall of the USPS as we know it.

September 7th, the birth date of Grandma Moses, is Grandma Moses Day. She is an inspiration to all because she found her life's purpose at the age of 76.

The search engine known as Google was incorporated on this date in 1998. We all use "google" as a verb these days. Go ahead and google your name in honor of Google Commemoration Day.

Brazil observes Independence Day on September 7th, celebrating independence from Portugal in 1822.

Whip up a batch of acorn squash soup in honor of National Acorn Squash Day. So heartwarming and delicious, especially if the crisp air of fall has reached your neighborhood.

Even if you usually avoid decadent deli meats for health reasons, loosen up a little and enjoy a few slices of delicious salami. September 7th is Salami Day.
