International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Arrgh! It be celebrated every year on September 19.  Here is a website to find more nonsense about the day. There is even a facebook group dedicated to it.

This year, a group, Pirates for Parkinsons, is using the day to march for Parkinsons Disease. To date there are 39 Pirates for Parkinson's walks or events, mostly in the UK, but others include: Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Dayton, Ohio; French Pyrenees, France;  Ghana; Glasgow, UK; Hong Kong;  Johannesburg, SA;  Ketchikan, Alaska; Luxembourg; Plano, USA;  Stockholm, Sweden; Sydney, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; Wellington, NZ;  West Bank, Middle East. Glad to see that Plano is included. More info is here. Avast, mateys, have fun for a good cause. Let me know if you see any blonde pirates - They are the ones with patches over both eyes.
