Do Nothing Day

This is Martin Luther King Jr. Day today in the U.S.  It is also "Nothing Day" - an 'un-event" proposed in 1972 by columnist Harold Pullman Coffin.  It's been observed since 1973.  It is sponsored by Coffin's National Nothing Foundation, which is a registered foundation.  This year it coincides with Martin Luther King Jr. Day -  the third Monday of every January.  

In contrast to National Nothing Day, the Realist Society of Canada (RSC) has a religious holiday called THABS ( "There has always been something" Day, pronounced ˈtæbs). THABS is dedicated to the celebration of the "realization" that "if there was ever nothing, there would be nothing now". It is celebrated July 8 of each year.

Today's pictures are the Sundance Central Railroad Train Layout now in permanent residence in Odessa, just outside of Orlando, FL.  These are scenes adjacent to each. The Facebook page is here and the website is and there are lots of pictures on pinterest.
