 Fun days coming

Okay, I checked out www.holidayinsights.com and I found a couple fun days coming up in June you might want to celebrate. That day, according to the website, is National Rocky Road Day, which is all about eating ice cream, specifically Rocky Road ice cream. Then June 4 is Applesauce Cake Day, a time to enjoy an old and often forgotten goodie.
