September 30th National Mud Pack Day

There are certain things in life that make you go, hmm… I am not sure who first thought, “Hey, I’m going to put mud all over my face because I think it will help my skin to make me look younger!” Most of us would probably decline the offer, but there are those who pay a lot to have that done to them in spas.

I am sure that the rocks surrounding her head are significant as well. In the old days, soldiers would often cover themselves with mud to camouflage into the ground. I can just imagine them hiding, waiting to ambush whoever they were fighting against and one soldier turning to the other and asking, “Does this stuff make me look younger? I certainly feel younger.”

The Vikings, among others, found that covering themselves up in mud protected them from sunburn and bugs. Of course, they were probably covering themselves with  bugs as well but that doesn’t count. Perhaps they discovered the youthful agents in mud, after all… you never really see old looking Vikings (never mind that they normally didn’t live much past their thirties).

And if it’s good for your face, why not the entire body! Perhaps that’s how mud wrestling came about! Well, maybe it works, maybe it only works in someone’s mind, but there seem to be a lot of women who swear by the process, who am I to argue.

September 29th Confucius Day

Today is the day we celebrate the great philosopher, Confucius. Born in China, September 28, 551 B.C. . So why do we celebrate on September 29th? Well your guess is as good as mine. Does it matter? You’d have to ask Confucius!

He was a teacher, scholar, and politician. Many of his thoughts have been repeated in the Bible. There is no doubt he was a very smart man. I am curious though whether he was well known in his time or not, who knows.

He was a favorite in China until suppressed by the Qin Dynasty. His real name was Kong Qiu. It is surprising his works were not destroyed but supposedly he wrote everything down in chapters and they survived.

Many of his teachings seem obvious to us today, they may not have been back during his life. Particularly in China where the Emperor could do no wrong. Logic in a world filled with people who believed they were gods often do not match up well. The funny thing about it is, Confucius was right and they were wrong.
