RESPECT FOR PARENTS DAY

In an effort to “make our families become united and strong by recognizing the leadership roles parents have, and to reinstate the respect for parents that was evident in the past” RESPECT FOR PARENTS DAY was born.   These are the words of Marilyn Dalrymple from Lancaster CA as she created Respect For Parents Day which is celebrated annually on August 1st.

This day was created as a reminder that parents deserve and require respect and for all to consider the value that parents have in society.

NATIONAL MINORITY DONOR AWARENESS DAY

As part of National Minority Donor Awareness Week, National Minority Donor Awareness Day is celebrated on August 1, 2014.

In its 18th year, National Minority Donor Awareness Week was created to increase awareness of the need, especially among minorities, for more organ, eye and tissue donors.  It is also a time to honor minorities who have donated and to encourage others to register as donors.  People are also encouraged to practice good health habits in order to take better care of themselves in an attempt to reduce the number needing transplants.

NATIONAL RASPBERRY CREAM PIE DAY

Raspberry lovers today is again your day!  Following National Raspberry Cake Day, August 1, of each year, celebrates National Raspberry Cream Pie Day. 

Raspberries are the edible fruit of a multitude of plant species in the genus Rubus of the rose family.  The name also applies to the plants themselves.

Raspberries are woody stemmed perennials.

Raspberries are widely grown in all temperate regions of the World.

Raspberries are a very important commercial fruit crop.

At one time, raspberries were a midsummer crop, however with new technology, cultivars and transportation,
they can now be obtained year-round.

An  individual raspberry weighs 0.11 – 0.18 oz.

An individual raspberry is made up of about 100 drupelets.

One raspberry bush can yield several hundred berries a year.

A raspberry has a hollow core once it is removed from the receptacle.

Raspberries are a rich source of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber.

Raspberries contain vitamin B1, vitamin B3, folic acid, magnesium, copper and iron.
