Mother Maydays and other fertile checks on the calendar !

Well, we started wondering why there wasn’t any mention of the Mday in the UK and French papers while surfing this morning (ahkkh, a bad habit )… and so what about the auntie from the Dominican Republic ?? A friend and his wife from the Ukraine?? The “SF family” neighbor from Venezuela (yep, also 2day) ?? … so of course there’s a mother’s day central.com with 2 zillion tchotchke links, so we’ll spare u the trouble and repost here… but we of course cannot verify the accuracy ; ) , but anyways it’s always best to celebrate these things on Both official AND xtra random days with a high dose of creativity rather than participating in ” the Shopocalypse” – an artspeak term from Rev Billy, the renowned performance activist and radical candidate for mayor, who might be singing and preaching with the choir in NYC for Mday but can’t find the link at the moment… so for now NY yur on yur own…
