Everyone can find a reason to celebrate the last day of August! Some of the more famous people born on this date: TV and radio journalist Daniel Schorr (1916-2010), Broadway lyricist Alan Jay Lerner (1918-1986), TV news anchor Dan Rather (1931), baseball player Frank Robinson (1935), violinist Itzhak Perlman (1945), musician Van Morrison (1945), actor Richard Gere (1949) and actor Chris Tucker (1972). It is National Trail Mix Day and National Diatomaceous Earth Day. According to the French Republican Calendar we are to honor walnuts today! Bright paisleys in orange and green and blue are certainly appropriate.
