July ate the eighth Ice Cream Sundae & Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day.


Oh good, you're awake now.
Come on, up off the floor, you can't lollygag about there all day.

It's the Feast Day of St Peter the Hermit.
You don't find that on resumes much these days; "past employment - Hermit".
Pity that fun job was wasted on men back in the dim dark ages.
I'd like to be a hermit.
I hear the pay's lousy but all the pigeons you can eat....

1872 Today saw the issue of the first 40,000 sovereigns from the Victorian Mint.

It's Ice Cream Sundae Day.
And if that doesn't tickle your fancy it's also Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day.
If you're a hard-to-please sod then how about Be A Kid Day?
Just so as I can ground you, send you to your room without any sweets and draw all over your homework folder myself to save you the trouble eat your share of the Ice Cream Sundaes.

1893 To have some control over the thoroughbred racing industry the NZ Racing Conference was established.


  1. And I say, fuck 'em. What say you?

  2. Brian would have had fun with that post.

  3. LOL
    I already offered to ground everyone, Anja :P

    Yes, he would have played merry hell with it, Andrew, and we'd have needed towels to mop up our monitors by the end of his comment lol ;)
