It’s National Hot Dog Day (also National Hot Dog Month, as I mentioned last week). I found this recipe from Applegate for a Denver Dog, loaded up with green chile, red onions, jalapenos and sour cream.
Celebrating birthdays include actors Donald Sutherland (84), actor and pop star David Hasselhoff (67), country singer Luke Bryan (43) and former Rockies pitcher Jason Jennings (41).

Song of the Day
Song: “Little Birdie”
Artist: Vince Guaraldi
Sounds like: The jazz pianist would have have 91 today. His songs were pretty much the soundtrack of my youth since I watched “Peanuts” specials religiously as a kid. This is the best song about Snoopy’s little bird friend Woodstock ever.
