August 22, 2014: Today is Daffodil Day for our friends in Australia. It’s one of many worldwide holidays dedicated to beating cancer, which is always a good cause in my book. (Also, I’m not much of one for flowers of any kind, but I’ve always found daffodils really cool-looking.) On the flip side, it’s also Ray Bradbury’s Birthday today. He was one of the first sci-fi writers I ever read, so he probably helped spark this lifelong love of the genre. Thanks, Ray!
