On this day
Refuelling got a whole lot cooler!
Most motorists have had to fill up our cars, bikes, and vans at one point or another, and usually every week! But, have you ever tried doing it in the sky? Turns out, it’s not so easy! But, thanks to Captain Lowell H. Smith and Lieutenant John P. Ritcher performing the first ever aerial refueling in a DH-4B biplane in 1923, it has become quite the common occurrence mid-flight!
Special Days Falling on June 27thToday can't all be about history! It's important to honor the important things that today commemorates, too. As it happens, today seems to be a good day for wearing shades, peeling onions, and enjoying ice cream cake. We're not joking!
National Sunglasses Day
Although many of us either tend to forget them, or only use them as an accessory, sunglasses are among the most important items we own. We actually need them to protect our eyes from harsh sun rays instead of simply needing them to look cool. So, today, make sure you bring your sunglasses with you, and be sure to avoid looking directly into the Sun!
National Onion Day
Speaking of eyes, if you need a good cry today, onions always offer a great way to get the tears flowing! Although, it will be quite a stinging cry, so do it at your own peril! But, let’s not forget that aside from making us cry, onions are aromatic, tasty, and really make some dishes worth eating. They also have plenty of layers… as any Shrek fans out there will tell you!
National Ice Cream Cake Day
Once you’ve finished your vegetables for the day, why not celebrate the summer with a bit of ice cream cake? Ice cream cake is lovely and refreshing midway through a northern hemisphere summer – meaning its national day is certainly well-timed. If you’ve never sampled an ice cream cake before, either head to your local bakery or try and make one yourself – Pinterest and YouTube will help!
