Jewish date: 3 Tishri 5770.
Today’s quasi-holidays: Elephant Appreciation Day, Miniature Golf Day, International Banana Festival, World Gratitude Day, International Day of Peace, National Woman Road Warrior Day.
And yes, I do realize that the United Nations having an International Day of Peace is ironic.
Worthy cause of the day: My brother Barry has asked me to post this:
I am asking everyone to participate in ARC of Indian River County's 6th Annual Divine Dining Drawing. In these tough times, state funding to help people with developmental disabilities has been cut, and donations are more important than ever. Your donation will help support ARC's group homes, work supports, and behavioral services for people with developmental disabilities. For every $2.00 ticket you buy, you will get a chance of winning many fabulous prizes including dining at a number of wonderful restaurants, gift cards for Publix, and a pie a month from Bob Evans for a year. The drawing will be held on November 20th, so time is running out. You can get tickets from me personally, or you can call (772) 562-6854 x217 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about this fundraiser athttp://www.arcir.org/sales.html or about ARC in general at http://www.arcir.org. Thank you for attention and hopefully your support.

There will not be a weird thing today due to the Fast of Gedhalyah. May you have an easy fast.
