Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

The puddings we enjoy as desserts today are not what was commonly known as pudding at ancient dinner tables. Most medieval puddings were meat based and seasoned with herbs and spices. Even sweetened, they were usually served hot. Toward the end of the 18th century, puddings were more likely made from a grains or day old bread with nuts, fruit or meats. These puddings were used to stretch meals for a large family.

Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles of the clase Dinosauria that first appeared during the Triassic period. Although the exact origin and timing of the evolution of dinosaurs is the subject of active research, the current scientific consensus places their origin between 231 and 243 million years ago. They became the dominant terrestrial vertebrates after the Triassic–Jurassic extinction event 201 million years ago. Their dominance continued through the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and ended when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups 66 million years ago.

Everyone needs the occasional unscheduled day of leisure or mental health break. Unfortunately, your workplace probably doesn't appreciate your spontaneity, and with good reason. Luckily, there is something you can do in this exact situation: call in sick. Obviously this isn't a technique you can use too often, but it can give you that well-needed break. In order to call in sick, you have to convince your colleagues that you were really feeling sick the day before and make a call to your boss that makes it seem like you really regret having to stay home to tend to your illness without laying it on too thick.
