JAN 14, 2015

For all sandwich lovers of the Joey (Friends) Tribbiani levelHot Pastrami Sandwich Day cannot come often enough. Every year on January 14, we pay homage to the wonderful sandwich-pioneers who brought this smoked meat classic, and celebrate in kind. Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day should be celebrated by a gathering of your closest friends and family, and giving thanks to this wonderful culinary invention. A hot pastrami sandwich should be enjoyed in the traditional sense, between two warmed slices of bread, and with plenty of mustard to add that certain je ne sais quoi.

The Ancient City of Susa

Located about 15 miles (23 km) southwest of modern Dizful, Iran, ancient Susa was the capital of Elam and of the Persian Empire.

Ratification Day

The Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1783, and was ratified on January 14, 1784, officially ending the American Revolution. The Old Senate Chamber in theMaryland State House at Annapolis has been preserved exactly as it was when the ratification took place, and, on its anniversary, the flag of 1784—with 12 stars in a circle and the 13th in the center—flies over the State House and many other buildings in Annapolis. The ceremony that takes place inside varies from year to year, but it often revolves around a particular aspect of the original event.

Swiss Government Slices International Pizza Delivery

Don't like your neighborhood pizzeria? Maybe it's time to consider internationalpizza delivery—a tactic used until recently by many Swiss citizens trying to stretch their francs by ordering pizza from nearby German border towns, where it's less expensive. An exception had allowed food delivery to avoid passing throughcustoms, but it was rescinded by Swiss officials about a year ago. Although theChamber of Industry and Commerce for the neighboring German region of Hochrhein-Bodensee lobbied for the exception to be reinstated, the Swiss customs office recently rejected the proposal.

If You Were Born Today, January 14

You are success-oriented and generally good with money. Your character is strong and you are especially noticeable. You are aware that you can't please everyone, and this is something you accept. In fact, there will always be some people who are intimidated by your strong personality and one-track focus, but this doesn't concern you as much as it might others. You are organized and somewhat conservative. Highly attractive, in love, however, you can be a little contradictory and challenging to understand!
