VAV!/December 17, 2014 Cinematic Treasures Named to National Film Registry "Saving Private Ryan," "Luxo Jr." and "Rosemary's Baby" Among Film Additions The horrors of war, the heroism of sacrifice, a vaudeville pioneer, the devil and a master of the macabre represent the diversity of an elite selection of films recognized for their cultural, historic or aesthetic significance. Librarian of Congress James H. Billington announced today the annual selection of 25 motion pictures to be named to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. Selection to the registry will help ensure that these films will be preserved for all time. "The National Film Registry showcases the extraordinary diversity of America's film heritage and the disparate strands making it so vibrant," said Billington. "By preserving these films, we protect a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history."

Food Day Celebrations

VAV!/December 14, 2014 There's always something to celebrate because there's a food holiday every day of the year. In other words..."We are standing at the precipice of glorious food or drink celebrations daily!"  Not all food holidays have political, cultural or religious beginnings either. Nor, do local, state or federal offices close in honor of them... although, that is a nice thought.  The below food holidays include days, listed among the meaningful, that have been drummed up by people who are passionate about their favorite foods or who just plain want to sell their food products. Get ready for your ears to ring and your stomach to quivver in anticipation...   January January 2 -National Buffet week/National Creampuff DayJanuary 3 -National Chocolate Covered Cherry DayJanuary 19 -National Popcorn DayJanuary 20 -Cheese DayJanuary 23 -National Pie DayJanuary 24 -National Peanut Butter DayJanuary 27 -National Chocolate Cake Day
