Lincoln's birthday
Although not a national holiday in many states, today is the 215th birthday of Abraham Lincoln. I'm celebrating by being home with a slight head cold. Happy birthday Mr. Lincoln!

I will be watching the film of playwright Robert Sherwood's "Abe Lincoln in Illinois", starring Raymond Massey--with Ruth Gordon as Mary Lincoln and Gene Lockhart as a credible Stephen Douglas.

How could it not be a national holiday in many states?

Idea - Try a warm hat

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

Because most states celebrate President's Day instead.
