★~ Pig Day: Snort Snort:
In honor of pig day I lined up some of the finest pig snorters of all time. Please click Pigs! We salute you with our Snorts! I promise you will be amazed at there exsnortinary snorting ability.
★~ Peanut Butter Lovers Day:
Yes, we did just celebrate Peanut Butter Day on January 24th, if you remember, we established that good people ate chunky peanut butter and evil people preferred plain peanut butter. However, today is Peanut Butter Lover’s day—a day for the people who can taste the difference between Jiffy peanut butter and Peter Pan peanut butter, who order a PB sandwich leaving off the J, who would hunt down and do bodily harm to the family member who took the first dip into the peanut butter jar.
If you are a peanut butter lover, we salute you today by sharing the recipe for Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies! And we promise to look the other way when you eat peanut butter straight out of the jar. Just don’t double dip, please.
★~ Today in History:
♥~ 1803 – Ohio (17th state) became a state. Columbus is the capital. Nicknamed, The Buckeye State (nicknamed because of the many buckeye trees, the state tree). State bird the cardinal; the scarlet carnation is its flower. The word, Ohio, is derived from the Iroquois Indian word meaning ‘great river’. Ohio’s state motto: With God, all things are possible.
♥~ 1867 – Nebraska became the (37th) states. Nebraska means ‘flat water’ in Oto Indian speak. Lincoln is the state capital. Nebraska’s motto: Equality before the law. The western meadowlark state bird; while the goldenrod takes its place as the state flower.
♥~ 1873 – E. Remington and Sons of Ilion, NY began the manufacturing of the first practical typewriter. It was half-century before electric typewriters made their appearance.
♥~ 1962 – The first K-Mart store was opened by variety store operator S.S. Kresge in Garden City, MI.

♥~ A sow can give birth to a litter containing 7 to 12 piglets, about twice a year. The gestation period of a sow is 114 days (3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days).
♥~ A baby pig, or piglet, weighs about 3 pounds at birth and will double its weight in just 7 days.
♥~ Weaning occurs at three months of age, but young pigs continue to live with their mothers. Two or more sows usually join together in an extended family.
♥~ Pigs are very clean animals. They keep their toilets far from their living or eating area. Even piglets only a few hours old will leave the nest to relieve themselves.
♥~ Pigs do not sweat. They don’t glow either. Pigs have very few sweat glands; to control their temperature they huddle in the cold, and pant or wallow when it gets hot.
♥~ Pigs are highly intelligent. Like dogs, they can be easily housebroken, taught to fetch and come to heel. Pigs can learn to dance, race, pull carts and sniff out land-mines

I always start the morno with a good snort. Isabel, I have never head Mary Had A Little Lamb snorted so beautifully. Brought a tear to my eye.
Having a piece of toast with peanut butter.
Mike are you being sarcastic? A tear to your eye?
Love toast with peanut butter!
Hi Mike! Have not been up and on the computer this early for awhile. Love pig day. The snorts are great.
Now let’s talk about the Justin Bieber. There is Who music you could have posted! Justin Bieber, really?
Sorry–Bieber is 18 today. Seem more “news” worthy.
Good to see you bright and early!
That was tons of fun! Love you. Hope you get that snort from Mary Lee.
Still have some of the honey-roasted peanut butter (I believe it qualifies as chunky!) for you at my house.
YAY. Guess we need to schedule that coffee date!
Known forever for her magnificent snorting ability!
I didn’t know all that about pigs. I’d heard that they’re clean animals, but I thought somebody was just pulling my leg. Still, I wouldn’t want one as a pet indoors!
Pigs are amazing. I would love to have one for a pet but I agree I think a farm is better place for a pet pig. Do you remember Arnold on Green Acres?
Jif Extra Crunchy on Celery. YUM!
YUM!! Great combination.
In honor Peanut Butter Day, I will indulge in the peanut butter Girl Scout cookies that are calling my name! 🙂
Paula, I had several myself! Those girl scouts get around.
Oh No, I had a PB&J yesterday on my way to agility!!!
Sigh! I tol you and I tol you…no J on Peanut Butter days!
We certainly DO have a snorter, disguised as a cocker spaniel. To complete the disguise, she is rotund, despite our best efforts. She is AMAZING in her resourcefulness in finding food. If land mines smelled like peanut butter, the Pentagon would be calling.
She is also a snorer, but then again… so am I.
Love Miss Piggy. She would make a funny character in a Children’s book. I have a lot of snorers around here. My living room positively rumbles at night!
