Hello, Nessie

This is surely a week of anniversaries. Today we're honoring the Loch Ness Monster because on April 21, 1934 what is known as the Surgeon's Photo was taken of the monster's head and neck. It has become the iconic photo of Nessie, as the monster is affectionately known. I don't even have to post the photo. I'll bet you already have the image in your head.

While Nessie is referred to as a monster, this has to be the most loved monster ever. Does she strike fear in anyone? The monster is so popular that her pop culture status needed it's own page on Wikipedia. Do you remember that in the beginning of the 2004 film Napoleon Dynamite Napoleon is giving a speech about the Loch Ness Monster?

Let's celebrate the Loch Ness Monster by shopping. That always seems like a good way to celebrate to me.
