Disc Jockey Day celebrates the hard working entertainers that bring energy to dance floors across the globe and music to radios – from the velvet suited wedding crooners to international superstars.

Superstar DJ’ing was born out of the popularity of the Ibiza dance scene and now dance music and DJs are global and the technology has moved way beyond two turntables and a microphone.

Penguins are aquatic, flightless birds that are highly adapted to life in the water. Their distinct tuxedo-like appearance is called countershading, a form of camouflage that helps keep them safe in the water. Penguins have wing-bones, that are flipper-like and extremely suited to swimming. Penguins are found almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, where they catch their food underwater and raise their young on land.

And they are just so darn cute. Perhaps, where black and white or waddle a little to celebrate Penguin awareness day.

Say Cheese! Americans Love Cheese, consuming about 31 pounds of cheese each year but not as much as the French who consumes 50 pounds of cheese each year. I did not find figures for the Italians, I’m sure they are off the chart.

There are more than 900 known cheeses in the world, and they can all be classified by texture. Here are the primary classifications and some examples: fresh cheese (ricotta); soft cheese (feta); semi-soft cheese (Fontina); semi-hard cheese (Gouda); hard cheese (Cheddar); double or triple crème cheese (Brillat-Savarin); blue cheese (Gorgonzola); washed rind cheese (Limburger); and bloomy rind cheese (Brie).

People have been making cheese for at least 8,000 years, so the cheeses we enjoy today are all relatively young by comparison. Take Emmental (also known as Swiss cheese), for example. It’s only been around since the first century BC!

Cheesy pizza for dinner?

  1. Morno,
    Chicago covering all the bases. Just make sure they provide some target practice. No use taking out the innocent bystander.
    Cheesy Pizza sounds good for dinners.Penguins are interesting. Shame I didn’t pull out the tux.
    Always liked George Burns.
    Have a good one.

    • I agree about the target practice. It’s good to hit what you are aiming at.
      Next year I’ll let you know in advance so you can get the tux pressed.
      Cheese pizza or grilled cheese!

  2. Always loved that Beatles album cover.
    We used to collect penguin figurines. Now have only a select few.
    Cheese is a great snack. Cheese pizza is my favorite!
    Couldn’t access video, but I have a clue what it’s about!
    Envious of your Prarie Wolf jaunts…..
    Good day!

    • Cosco makes a great slice of cheese pizza. We’ve been lunching at Cosco after our PW runs and I rotate cheese pizza with a hot dog or brat. Tasty and you can’t beat the price. Good samples too. :-D. First penguin collector I’ve ever met!

  3. Aw, those penguins are just darling! I’d love having a pet penguin, but Dallas would herd it from one end of the pool to the other.

    Cheese is one of my favorites. There are so many varieties that I can’t see how everyone wouldn’t love it!

    Y’all are sharing GUNS now??!

    • Yep–Guns for one and all. Chicago my kind of town :-D.
      I love cheese too! Especially grilled cheese sandwiches!
