Noting that today is the 100th anniversary of Jack "King" Kirby's birth.

If you've enjoyed any incarnation of Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, the original X-Men, the New Gods, Mr. Miracle, owe it in part to him.

Thanks again, Mr. Kirby

I'm feeling in more of a contemplative mood rather than a celebratory one today. No interest in going to Parliament Hill to endure the weather, the crowds and the security theatre at all, for one thing. For another, there's the ongoing concerns of the indigenous peoples about the consequences of how Confederation got built, upon whose bones and so on.

We are still not yet the nation we could become, and it behooves us all to remember that fact.

Leaving it at that for now. I don't know if I'll have anything more worth saying right now...

...going out to [personal profile] dianeduane and [personal profile] m_danson, seeing as your Occasions of Note fall a day apart from each other.

Hoping your days have been kind to each of you.

I stuck pretty close to home because day-job work this morning, but I generally tend to forget that anniversary of spaceflight until it's right on top of us all anyway.

But the rest of you?
dewline: (celebration) [personal profile] julian today!

Happier birthdays to you in the years to come, friend!

I just found out from David Brin over on Facebook that this is an unofficial thing, coinciding with Isaac Asimov's birthday.

Noticed that Star-Lord # 1 has gotten to the stores today, so I'm hoping this is a good week for you overall! Happier birthdays to you in future!

...should have this document as its guide.

Noting the fact that Human Rights Day comes 'round again tomorrow...

Reminders went out that today is the anniversary of the first published strip in Charles Schulz' comic strip Peanuts.

I find myself in want of a root beer right now.

(Also, wishing I could've thanked Mr. Schulz directly for his works.)

More on other topics as the day progresses, hopefully...

For those lost in New York City, Washington and a field in Virginia...and for those lives lost across Chile decades earlier as well...

As I was rummaging through my LJ archives to see what other positive events I can still commemorate, I can across an entry from 2006 noting Steve's wedding anniversary.

To Steve directly: if memory serves, the marriage still holds according to your postings on Facebook within the last day or so. Wishing you and Laura well today, Steve!
dewline: (celebration)
Hoping that you and yours are having a good one today!

Seeing the completion of the CN Tower live on TV as a child was as big a deal to me as the launch of the Apollo-Soyuz mission or the Montréal Olympics' opening ceremonies.

Noting Spacing Toronto's coverage on the 40th anniversary...
