Trees precede human life on Earth by hundreds of millions of years, so let’s have a little respect, shall we? For our part, Americans have attempted to make up for lost time by celebrating Arbor Day every year since 1872 (over a million trees were estimated to have been planted in that year alone).

Today is National Butterscotch Brownie Day! Butterscotch brownies, also known as “blondies,” are delicious baked goodies that date back to the 19th century. Recipes for these soft, chewy bars most likely evolved from Medieval gingerbread cake recipes. In fact, butterscotch brownies were around for almost a hundred years before chocolate brownies became popular!

Imagine floating in 10 inches of Epsom Salt Saturated water that allows you to remain buoyant effortlessly. The tank is dark and the water is heated to match your skin temperature making it impossible to distinguish where your body ends and the water begins. A massive amount of brain power is used every second in order to deal with the huge strain that gravity places on one’s body. In a float tank the body is totally supported and there is little for the brain to do and EVERY muscle is allowed to totally relax

It was in the late 1800′s that animal shaped cookies were imported to the United States from England and they very quickly grew in popularity. In 1902 animal crackers officially became known as “Barnum’s Animals” and evoked the familiar circus theme of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Later that year, the now-familiar box was designed for the Christmas season made with a string to hang from the Christmas tree. At that time, these boxes of Animal Crackers sold for five cents a box.
