What’s So Special About April First

By Paul Bieber

There is always a lot of talk about April First being a special day. I have done extensive research and found very little that makes this day special. Here’s the highlights:

  • 1826–Samuel McRey patents the internal combustion engine.
  • 1975–Apple is formed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak

How about people?

  • Rusty Staub was born in 1944. (For those of you who are saying “Who?”, he is a great New York Met)
  • Rachel Maddow, a television news commentator was born in 1973.

And the really important point one: Since 2000, April first is EDIBLE BOOK DAY in Great Britain, where pastry chefs compete to make great literature that is also tasty.

So, since there is just no news that is worth writing about, I went to my list of blogs to write and couldn’t decide which one to work on. So, dear readers, please help me. Take a look at this list and drop me a note about which blog to write next week.
