Your Favourite Day of the Year!

What's your favourite day of the year?  I would guess that for children it would be Christmas and their birthday. Halloween would be in the range too. I just read that another is 'any day I don't have to go to school' or the last day of school.  I saw another one that was humorous - Saturday and Sunday. 

And today I read that the 'Dark Web' is linked to the terrorist attack in Nice. I hadn't heard the term before, so looked it up in Wikipedia: The dark web is the World Wide Web content that exists on darknets, overlay networks which use the public Internet but which require specific software, configurations or authorization to access. The dark web forms a small part of the deep web, the part of the Web not indexed by search engines, although sometimes the term "deep web" is confusingly used to refer specifically to the dark web.

The services Wikipedia lists on these sites include: gambling, guns, abuse, porn, hacking, counterfeit, whistleblower, bitcoin, fraud, market, drugs.  Hacking hit close to home in June - a community services organizations in Grimsby was hacked and blackmail attempted with payment demanded in bitcoins. The organization refused.

Too much to think about on a beautiful summer day with a great backyard picture to match.
