April 7: National Beer Day, No Housework Day, Coffee Cake Day

Regarding Beer ... on March 23, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act, allowing the "resumption of the manufacture and sale of 3.2 percent beer and light wines in the states that had already repealed their dry laws." The act went into effect on April 7, 1933.  Similar to New Year's Eve or the night before Thanksgiving, happy hour celebrating National Beer Days starts on April 6, with New Beer's Eve. Consider it a mini reenactment of the crowd of thirsty people who lined the streets on the April 6, 1933, outside of Milwaukee breweries waiting to buy their legal beer. Frost those mugs at home or designate a diver and hit the town. Remember to toast FDR.

Regarding Housework ... I don't think you'll find a Hallmark card for this holiday, but there is a BLOG HOP that I've been enjoying today.  Go here for the first link and have some fun:  http://ifitsgroovy.blogspot.com/
 
Regarding Coffee Cake:  okay, so here's a coffee cake recipe for you to try:

Regarding Henry ... not celebrated today, but one of my all time favorite movies that Harrison Ford made (not counting Star Wars, of course).
 
Enjoy your day!  (And don't tell my husband it's National Beer Day - he needs no encouragement!)

Thanks for the nice comment off of my copic post.. it drives me crazy when people think everything is a competition... who has the most blinkies, who has the most copics.. uuggg I can't handle it.. anyways I have taken the class twice & I only have about 20 markers..lol I think it is an awesome idea to take the class before buying any markers.. some people really love to color and are awesome at it. I am not a fan of coloring I just like to learn about it, still won't show any of my work.. your right there is sooo many great projects out there.. it's either u get into it or you don't.. I am not going to try to get all the markers.. I'll pick up a few here and there if they are on sale.. but I need lots of practice.. I hope a class comes near you soon..
