-- Barney was created in 1987 by Sheryl Leach of Dallas, Texas. The idea came to her while considering TV shows she felt would be educational and appeal to her son. She brought together a team who created a series of home videos, Barney and the Backyard Gang, which also starred actress Sandy Duncan in the first three videos. One day in 1991, the daughter of Connecticut Public Television executive Larry Rifkin rented one of the videos. Rifkin pitched the show to CPTV president Jerry Franklin, whose preschool son also fell in love with it.

Plan Your Epitaph Day
- Dedicated to the idea a forgettable gravestone is a fate worse than death. Because, if you do nothing, someone else will simply put your name and dates on your gravestone, period. If you are terribly unlucky, they'll add something like Dearly missed or Beloved Cousin or maybe even worse.

National Sorry Charlie Day/Charlie the Tuna Day
- Honoring Charlie the Tuna who is always rejected for the tuna fish can, but keeps on trying. This is a day to reflect on all the times we have been rejected in our lives and how we have survived anyhow. It happens to everyone. The important thing to remember is how you bounced back and what you learned from all those rejections.

New York Slave Revolt (1712)
- The New York Slave Revolt on April 6, 1712, was an uprising in New York City of 23 enslaved Africans who killed nine whites and injured another six. 70 Africans were arrested and jailed that day. Of these, 27 were put on trial, and 21 were convicted and executed.
