Image: Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies to Your Backyard: Watch Your Garden Come Alive With Beauty on the Wing, by Sally Roth (Author). Publisher: Rodale Books; First Edition edition (May 4, 2001)Butterfly and Hummingbird Day
- Today is for honoring and celebrating the beautiful and unique bird called the hummingbird and admiring the beautiful and colorful butterflies fluttering around. Who hasn't seen the majestic beauty of a butterfly bouncing through the air or hummingbirds hovering near a feeder? Did you know there are about 24,000 species of butterflies and representations of butterflies have been found in Egyptian frescoes at Thebes, which are 3,500 years old?

Read: Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies to Your Backyard
-- In her newest book for Rodale, the irrepressible Sally Roth zeroes in on one of North America's best-loved backyard birds-the hummingbird - and on the beautiful, delicate insects all the rage among nature enthusiasts-butterflies. Becoming a dual hummingbird/butterfly watcher couldn't be more natural for backyard gardeners and nature lovers because both of these types of winged creatures are attracted to beautiful nectar flowers. Sally Roth is a passionate gardener, and she shares all her best recommendations on the perfect flowers to plant to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Virus Appreciation Day
- the opportunity to show a little respect for nasty viruses. Funny - I was thinking it was for computer viruses! So let's take measures to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and even our computers to minimize the risk of serious viruses.

Andy Griffith Show Birthday 1960
- The show’s premiere episode aired on October 3, 1960, with the series finale airing on April 1, 1968. The show was about a widowed sheriff who was trying to run the town of Mayberry, North Carolina while also trying to manage his own life.

Captain Kangaroo Day
- a children's television series which aired weekday mornings on the American television network CBS from October 3, 1955, until 1984, making it the longest-running children's television program of its day

Dick Van Dyke Show Premiere
- an American television sitcom that initially aired on CBS from October 3, 1961, until June 1, 1966. The show was created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore.

Look at the Leaves Day
- Go for a Leaf Walk today and bring a bag for collecting leaves. See how many different kinds you can find.

Ozzie and Harriet Day 1952
- During a period lasting twenty years, the Nelson Family--Ozzie, his wife Harriet Hilliard, and their two sons, David and Ricky--were regarded as the preeminent icon of the ideal nuclear family.

National Carmel Custard Day
- On this day, fans of caramel custard celebrate by whipping up delicious caramel custards and the sweet Spanish version called flan.

Day of German Unity in Germany
- commemorating the anniversary of German reunification in 1990.

Techie's Day
- a good day to give your friendly technician(s) some well-deserved appreciation. Who fixes your computer? When your computer goes down or gets a virus, your tech guy or gal is invaluable. He or she can get your system back up and running faster than you can say gigabyte.
