December 13, 2013: That’s right, Ice Cream Day. In December. There’s also a National Ice Cream Day on the third Sunday in July; I guess they also wanted one for those in balmier climes. We could certainly be eating ice cream here in Florida in December. It’s also Violin Day today, celebrating the only musical instrument I tried to learn to play as a child. Probably not the best kind of instrument to start with; I really should have gone with something that had well-defined notes. I didn’t even make it a year before I gave up in frustration. It’s been 30 years, but I’d kind of like to try to take it up again.
