As Young as You Feel Day
Some people are only as old as their gadgets are young. When you start complaining about how hard "new" phones or computers are to use, or talking about how much music has changed since "your day," there may be signs that you are starting to feel old. Wellcat wants to remind you that you are as young as you feel "so stop acting your chronological age and get out there and start feeling peppy."
* Hop on a bike and pedal to nowhere in particular, just enjoy the ride.
* Learn something new.
* Play games, go dancing, or do any fun activity that makes you feel energetic and happy.
International Goof-Off Day
One way to feel young is to blow off responsibility and goof off. Monica A. Dufour and A.C. Vierow have claimed March 22 as a day for good-humored fun and silliness. If the weather is cooperating, it might be hard to get to work, return from lunch or sit through yet another boring class or meeting. If you're stuck at work, goof off by watching TV, playing games, or pinning everything you love to Pinterest.
Bavarian Crepes Day
Crepes are like thin pancakes with a strong egg flavor. They can be used for savory dishes or as the excuse to eat sweet blueberries and a rich Bavarian cream filling. On Bavarian Crepes Day you can do like the French in rural society did and show your allegiance to someone by making them crepes. The French farmers offered crepes to their landowners, according to Food Timeline. Use this recipe to make the crepes, cream filling and blueberry topping.
World Water Day for Water
One area where we shouldn't goof on March 22, or any day, is water conservation. "Statistics say that each of us drinks from two to four liters of water every day, however most of the water we 'drink' is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 liters of water while 1 kilo of wheat 'drinks up' 1,500 liters," according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
Tuskegee Airmen Activated Anniversary
Before 1941, black servicemen were not allowed to learn to fly. The Army created a segregated squadron, the 99th Fighter Squadron, to train black college graduates near Alabama's Tuskegee Institute, according to George Washington University. Members of the squadron became known as the Tuskegee Airmen, and they were activated on March 22, 1941.
* Charles Alfred Anderson was the first African American to earn his pilot's license.
* The Tuskegee Airmen never lost a U.S. bomber on any of their escort missions, a claim no other unit could make.
* 992 black pilots emerged from the training.
