Today, August 4th is U.S. Coast Guard Day; National Mustard Day (observed on the first Saturday of August); President Obama's birthday and my personal favorite: National Chocolate Chip Day!
There is a Coast Guard Station near where I live but I don't think they need me to drop by and say anything. Security as it is these days, I don't know if people can just drop in anyway. As for mustard, I use it in cooking, but it isn't a condiment that I personally use. I could wear Coast Guard whites and eat a hotdog without fear of mustard stains. Ketchup might be another matter though.
Regardless of individual political beliefs, I would like to think that everyone would wish our president (and by this mean any of them while in office) well on their birthday. I'm "old school" in honoring the office even when I have been disappointed with the person in it. That is a general statement and doesn't imply anything. I like to say politically neutral here.
