If you are celebrating on this date, congratulations!  23 years ago, was a big night for "The Man In Black".  Johnny Cash was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in 1992, during a ceremony at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, along with Booker T. & The MGs, Jimi Hendrix, Sam & Dave, Bobby "Blue" Bland, guitar maker Leo Fender, songwriter Doc Pomus and The Yardbirds, including guitarist Eric Clapton.  

It's National Hat Day!!

Hats are worn for safety and protection, also for religious or ceremonial reasons but mostly for, warmth and just plain fashion.

Back in the Middle Ages, hats were an indicator of social status.  By the 16th century, structured hats for women began to be worn.  In the 18th century, the best quality hats were made in Milan, Italy.  In the mid 1920's, women began to replace their bonnets and wide brimmed hats with smaller ones that hugged their head.

Here's something to ponder today.  It's a fact that, more body heat is lost from your head than any other parts of the body.  All the more reason to wear a hat, today.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
