    National Bicarbonate of Soda Day National Bicarbonate of Soda Day, or Baking Soda Day, celebrates the many benefits and uses of Bicarbonate of Soda.

    Just how does Baking Soda work and what, specifically, does it do? Few people seem to know. It's quite simple. We will skip the chemistry lesson and how Baking Soda is made. Let's just talk to what it is, and what it does. Bicarbonate of soda is a chemical compound - sodium carbonate or sodium bi-carbonate. When heated, it creates carbon dioxide, a gas. The gas aids a variety of bakery products to rise as they cook.

    Many people just think of Bicarbonate of Soda as something you use for baking. But, it has so many more uses. Here are just a few of them:

    • Baking- helps baked goods, like bread, to rise
    • Relieve stomach indigestion and heartburn when mixed in water
    • Removing odors in the refrigerator, vents, storage areas, and closets
    • Removing odor in kitty litter
    • It is used in fire extinguishers for grease and oil fires
    • It is often used as a cleaning agent
    • It can be used as a meat tenderizer
    • Put it in water with beans to minimize flatulance from eating beans
    • Polish Silverware
    • Remove burned food from a pot or a pan
    • And, the list goes on, and on, and......
    • with love

    </DD><DD hasbox="2">Oh, the many wonders of sodium bicarbonate (commonly known as baking soda). Where would we be without it? It is used in baking, cooking, de-odorizing, cleaning, polishing, and the list goes on.
    </DD><DD hasbox="2">
    The ancient Egyptians used natural deposits of sodium bicarbonate as a cleansing agent like soap. But it wasn't until 1791 when French chemist Nicolas Leblanc produced sodium bicarbonate as we know and use it today. In 1846, two New York bakers named John Dwight and Austin Church established to first factory to make baking soda.
    </DD><DD hasbox="2">
    Baking soda is a white, odorless, crystalline solid that is completely soluble in water. It is very useful around the home, the kitchen, and for medical purposes. Did you know that baking soda can even be used as an antacaid to treat indigestion and hearburn? Sodium bicarbonate certainly deserves a whole day of celebration!

    Happy National Bicarbonate of Soda Day!

    Oh Queeny.so another relishing day is awaiting.But hope Sara will accompany me.
    Pad ma what a source of infos.?Thanks.
    So here we are at the end of the year.

    December 31st, the last day of the year, your last chance to "MAKE UP YOUR MIND"! All over the world, today people will battle with mind boggling, gut wrenching decisions in recognition of Make Up Your Mind Day


    It is a very decisive day. All during the year, you've put on hold, many issues and decisions. Eventually, they need to be resolved and decided upon. Well, today is the day. It's not a day to procrastinate. It's not a day to put off making a decision. If you are going to make up your mind this year, you'd better do it real soon. And, when you think about it, isn't it a great idea to clean the slate in advance of the new year!?
    You may want to begin, by making up your mind whether you will make New Year's resolutions. Then, make up your mind just what those resolutions will be.

    It's about making up your mind and sticking to it. It's time to stop being indecisive and make up your mind. No more putting off your decision, todays the day to finalize your thoughts and take a stand! Just remember- making up your mind makes life easier!!!!!!


    New Year's Eve is when all the fun and festivities are. We see out the old year and ring in the new.
    New Years' Day , is a time to relax and enjoy the start of a bright and promising new year....a new beginning. It is a time to be with family. After all, you haven't seen your mother in law since last year.....

    Did you make a New Year's resolution? Millions of people do. It's easy to make resolutions, and often much harder to accomplish them.

    A happy New Year! Grant that I
    May bring no tear to any eye
    When this New Year in time shall end
    Let it be said I've played the friend,
    Have lived and loved and labored here,
    And made of it a happy year.

    Bowing to all my buddy lists for being with me all through these days.Merrily we enjoyed.Hurrily marching forward to welcome the glorious 2010.
    My heartful wishes to all.
