Facts About July 21, 2016

July 21 is the 202nd day of the year (203rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 163 days remaining until the end of the year. I was born on July 21, some say it was on July 22, though. July 21 is also Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day. Although the ideal weather conditions for a traditional guerrilla-surprise-pudding-party we had to postpone it due to unexpected circumstances. However, despite that, my lovely niece had a delicious surprise for me and Mr. Bowie… The chocolate thingy is mine, Mr. B!


Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
