Here are some ideas from the web:
Step 1 - Bake a cherry pie. Or just eat one. Um well no one in my family likes cherry pie so that would seem like a waste of time and money.
Step 2 - Attend the Birthnight Ball in Alexandria, Va. In British tradition, the birthday of the ruling monarch was celebrated with a ball. Now this sounds like fun! I wonder if I could still find a gown, a ride, a ticket, a prince and a fairy godmother.
Step 3 - Learn to dance a Virginia line dance. From who and where should I learn this special dance?
Step 4 - Read the Gettysburg Address in the quiet of your home. Now see I think this would much more fun to go stand on a corner and read it really loud, maybe have other people who stop and stare take over some of the reading.
Step 5 - Visit the Lincoln Memorial and Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. Take a tour of the Capitol and visit some of the other sites associated with Abraham Lincoln. I think who ever came up with this list of helpful ideas was relate to Bill Gates because they sure want be to travel at the last minute.
Step 6 - Make a Lincoln penny pendant. Wear it to celebrate Lincoln's birthday. Or carry some pennies with you - easier and much handier for throwing in wishing wells.
