Image: Warriors and Seafarers (Picture history), by Anne Millard (Author). Publisher: Edc Pub (June 1977)Day of the Seafarer
-- A day to recognize their contributions and dedicated to the idea that mariners are At Sea for All: whether transporting containers, providing offshore services or towing barges, seafarers move the world economy forward. The Day of the Seafarer gives us all a chance to reflect on how much we all rely on seafarers for most of the things we take for granted in our everyday lives. Source

Read: Warriors and Seafarers, by Anne Millard
-- A brilliant overview of world history from prehistoric times to the early 20th century. Prepared with the help of experts in each period. Lots of illustrations provide an attractive and stimulating starting point to the subject.

Image: The Smurfs Anthology #1, by Peyo (Author). Publisher: Papercutz (June 25, 2013)Global Smurfs Day

-- Celebrate the Birthday of Peyo, the Creator of the Smurfs, with Smurfy Events Around the World. Events included painting one of the famous White Towns of Andalusia blue and setting a new record for Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Smurfs within a 24-hour Period (Multiple Venues). This is a great way to honor Peyo's birthday and his legacy, by bringing the world together across generations for a day of fun and festivities. Source

Read: The Smurfs Anthology, by Peyo -- When the Belgian cartoonist Peyo created a village of cute little woodland creatures for his heroes Johan and Peewit to discover, he couldn't have known that they would wildly outgrow those humble origins to become a worldwide phenomenon all on their own. More than 50 years later, The Smurfs continue to delight us all with their silliness, bravery, heroism, and heart, and now we finally have a definitive collection of Peyo's original comics to see where it all began.

Image: How to Build and Furnish a Log Cabin: The easy, natural way using only hand tools and the woods around you, by W. Ben Hunt (Author.) Publisher: Collier Books (November 15, 1974)National Log Cabin Day
-- A day to remember a quieter and simpler era when life was more rugged. Historically most Log cabins were a simple one or 1½-story structures, somewhat impermanent, and less finished or less architecturally sophisticated. A log cabin was usually constructed with round rather than hewn, or hand-worked, logs, and often it was the first generation home building erected quickly for frontier shelter. Source

Read: How to Build and Furnish a Log Cabin, by W. Ben Hunt
-- W. Ben Hunt's classic has earned a reputation as the authentic handbook since it was first published in 1939. Updated in 1974, it remains the only step-by-step guide to building log cabins and log furniture -- pioneer style. There are other manuals on building cabins, but W. Ben Hunt's is the only one to show you how to build and furnish an authentic pioneer cabin-the easy, natural way, using only hand tools and the woods around you. Our ancestors used logs and hand tools to build durable, dry, windproof, and protective dwellings; and they fashioned chairs, tables, branches, and bushes. In this day of power saws, lumberyards, and high prices, it's good to know that you can build in the same way.
