Freethinkers Day It’s Freethinkers Day (also known as Thomas Paine Day)! Freethinkers Day celebrates the life and work of Thomas Paine, who was born on this day in 1737. Paine came to America in 1774 at the request of Benjamin Franklin. Throughout his life, he wrote many influential books and pamphlets including The Age of Reason, The Rights of Man, and Common Sense.

National Puzzle Day Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, word searches, brain teasers or Soduku, puzzles put our brains to work. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/2016/01/28/january-29-2016-national-puzzle-day-national-corn-chip-day/

Corn Chip Day January 29th is a great day to enjoy a corn chip topped with salsa or a little cheese. It is National Corn Chip Day.

The corn chip or friotes are not to be confused with the tortilla chip. Both are made from cornmeal which is baked or fried in oil. http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/2016/01/28/january-29-2016-national-puzzle-day-national-corn-chip-day/

5. I just like crosswords and jigsaw puzzles.

I never learned how to do Sudoku. And "brain teaser" puzzles are way too much for my brain! Have a great day!
