Daily Holidays - April 27

National Prime Rib Day Prime Rib Day is a feast day in honour of this classic cut of the finest beef. Although little appears to be known about the origins of Prime Rib Day, it is best celebrated with great enthusiasm, with family and friends gathering to enjoy the occasion. Many restaurants also provide special menus in celebration. Prime rib, also known as ‘standing rib roast’ is located between the eighth and twelfth rib, on the upper back of the cattle.

Prime rib is best cooked on a low, slow heat, with the meat standing on the bones, so that it does not touch the roasting pan, thus ensuring its succulence. The top of the rib bones can be removed to make carving easier. Also popular on the barbecue, this delicacy is great when served with fully loaded baked potatoes or fries, mushrooms, creamed spinach, onion gravy, and don’t forget the Yorkshire puddings. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/prime-rib-day/

Tell A Story Day Tell a Story Day is celebrated in the United States, Scotland and the United Kingdom. The aim of the day to get participants telling, sharing and listening to each others stories. It is a celebration of the art of oral storytelling in all of its many forms, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, a tall tale, or folklore. The stories may be told from memory or from a book. Events can be held in community centres, churches, homes and gardens, hospitals, libraries, schools or more unusual venues!

The origin of the day is unknown, but there is surely a story to tell about it – maybe you can make one up for the next Tell a Story Day! For the day itself you can organise your own event with friends, family or colleagues and create a magical world of enchanting fairy tales, scary ghost stories or age-old family legends. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/tell-a-story-day/

Morse Code Day Morse Code Day commemorates the birth of the inventor of the Morse Code – Samuel Morse in 1791. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/morse-code-day/

1. The place where I grew up has had a storytelling festival for over 25 years.

It is held at the beginning of November and it is the second biggest event after the county fair.

10. Fooled me. I thought the pic was going to be Dimson in his cowboy boots.

However, I must register an official objection on behalf of my current home state, where Theodor Seuss Geisel was born and raised. Putting his iconic hat on this asshat is an offense up with which we will not put. And I am unanimous in that!

4. Some Great People Were Born on this Day

US Grant
Samuel Morse
Coretta Scott King
Ace Frehley

Sad these people share a birthday with Si Robertson, who judging by his picture must be a member of Doink Dynasty

6. Never heard of Storytelling Day. I like it. My father and husband don't have a lot in common,

but they both tell a good story like nobody's business. (I wonder what nobody's business means?)

Anyway, these are enjoyable threads. Thank you for them, Sherman A1.
