Finally, a day and evening with nothing to crosspost.
This is an actual , perfectly NORMAL DAY . . .
a day when it seems there is nothing special to celebrate
which is by itself, almost something to celebrate
So why this day of all days ?
I picked the date for this NORMAL DAY to coincide with June 7, 1854 - the date of the founding of the Town of Normal in Central Illinois
** BREAKING **
Normal Illinois is in the news in 2021
In July 2021, electric vehicle start-up Rivian will begin manufacturing pick-up trucks and sport utility vehicles there

But is there such a thing as a normal day when there is nothing to celebrate? Probably not, you say.
You would be right. A quick google search shows the extent that the myriad of national marketing and product associations have engaged in slurping up every random date on the calendar, and by so doing, usurping the calendar for their own devious designs.
And so, alas, we share the date June 7th with National VCR Day and National Running Day. At least we have the consolation that this is also National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Enjoy.
( I will not comment on how Prince, VP Pence, and singer Tom Jones were all born on this day - a most diverse group of individuals. )
