Be honest now: Did you know April 30 was International Jazz Day?

Tuesday, April 30 will be International Jazz Day, a co-production of UNESCO and the Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz.

Tuesday is also Honesty Day. Honesty is the best policy most of the time. Of course this may not be the case when your significant other asks, "Do these pants make me look fat?" And Tuesday will be Hairstyle Appreciation Day... another one that might be difficult to carry off if you're trying to observe Honesty Day.

April 30 is also Spank Out Day. This day is for those who believe that sparing the rod will not spoil the child.

One or two of you may have noticed that this blog commenced operations on April 30, 2012, thus making Tuesday our first blogiversary. (We told you last year that April 30 was Consumer Protection Day in Thailand.)

There really was a Casey Jones, and he did indeed die in a train wreck on April 30, 1900. Adolf Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945.
