CLOSED: August Birthday Thread

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

There's always room for more folks to join us. If you're just stumbling upon our July thread or have lurked in the past and would like to join the fun, here's how our group works. During your Birth Month, you will receive a Birthday Card from each of the other participants. And in turn, you are to mail a Birthday Card to each participant during their Birth Month. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a thoughtful Card instead of junk mail and bills? A Card and a 1st Class Stamp, it's as simple as that. Purchased and handcrafted Cards are both welcome. Come on and have some fun!!!!

So far we have no August Birthday's, but it is never too late to join in the fun!

August 2nd
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is a time to enjoy a cold ice cream sandwich.
The ice cream sandwich is so popular, and tastes so good, that it earns its own special
Ice cream sandwiches have been around since the early 1900s. Vanilla, chocolate and a combination of the two, are the most popular. You can make homemade sandwiches. Just put some ice cream between a couple wafers, and.. ...Voila! Don't have wafers? That's okay. Put some ice cream between two of your favorite cookies.

National Coast Guard Day

National Mustard Day celebrates the "King of the Condiments".
Mustard is a must have for hot dogs, sausages, and a wide range of sandwiches. Its an important ingredient in many recipes, too.
When it comes to condiments, Mustard is among the most popular. When it comes to longevity, mustard is unrivaled. It has literally been in use to spice up meals for thousands of years. To retain it's status, mustard has not stood still. Rather, it has diversified. It's not just yellow anymore. There's a growing selection, including Honey Mustard, Bold and Spicy, Sharp and Creamy, and of course Dijon Mustard. Take a trip to your refrigerator, and you will probably find two or three different types of mustard. A trip to the grocery store, will reveal even more selections.
Have a happy National Mustard Day.

Happy Birthday to...
Disney Channel twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse (1992),
NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon (1971),

Hi, all.
Just got back from vacation... Went camping for the week :) We all, including my guide dog, had a wonderful time! You did save me some cake, right?
Hey, this is turning into quite the party: raspberry cream pie (not sure I've had it before, but it sounds delicious!), ice cream sandwiches, watermelon, mustard (so there must be hot dogs or sausages or something to put it on, or in... I have a recipe for cauliflower that uses it in a sauce and tops it all with cheese) :)
That's neat that Goober will be able to join Dave's Garden :)
Elfie, I do hope the doctor is able to help you feel better soon!
Well, I better go catch up on some other threads, too, but I'll stop by again soon! Take care, everyone!
