Popsicle lovers across America, today is National Cherry Popsicle Day. As we celebrate Food Porn Friday don’t forget August 26 is the annual celebration of this refreshing summertime treat.
Did you know that in 1905 an 11-year old named Frank Epperson accidentally created this frozen pop? That’s right accidentally and by an 11-year old kid! When Frank left his mixture of powdered soda and water in a cup, with a stirring stick in the mix outside overnight, he woke up the next morning to find that his concoction was frozen when the temperatures dipped overnight. His discovery was a frozen and refreshingly tasty treat. Although today we celebrate the cherry popsicle, be sure to check out the other great frozen treats on a stick from Popsicle®. It’s for the kid in all of us!
Did you know that the cherry-flavored popsicle is named Ace? Ace is handsome, athletic and wears sunglasses at night! That’s one cool dude-sicle!
Imagination is unlimited and we are limited when our imagination does not flourish! As tall as skyscrapers, this is the night view of SuperTrees that illuminate the Gardens By The Bay project in Singapore’s Marina Bay area.
These towering structures are fitted with solar panels, rainwater catches and hanging gardens that are designed to display plants from around the world.
Talk about taking imagination, art, horticulture and architecture to an unbelievable level.
Twas the days before school
and all through the hall
not a student was stirring
as teachers prepared for Fall
the desks were neatly arranged
aligned with care
in hopes that your besties
would soon be there
when suddenly the roar
of your bus was outside
wake up, grab your bookbag
its time to take your ride
with notebooks and pencils
you were on your merry way
welcome back to school students
and to all a good day!
