Tomatoes didn’t come to Europe until the discovery of the New World, and when Italians discovered tomatoes they pretty much never looked back! The first place it went? Their favored food, Pizza! Finally, after thousands of years, these two amazing things came together to be celebrates in Beer and Pizza Day!

Today is International Rabbit Day!

International Rabbit Day promotes protection and care of rabbits both domestic and wild. There are many ways rabbits bring joy to our lives, and also there are many ways in which they are harmed, by hunting, eating, medical experimentation, product testing, fur-farming, etc.

An advocacy group, the House Rabbit Society, states all rabbits are “valuable as individuals, regardless of breed purity, temperament, state of health, or relationship to humans… Domestic rabbits are companion animals and should be afforded at least the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as commonly afforded to dogs and cats who live as human companions.”
