Flag Day is June 14 ...a Special Meaning.

Flag Day is not one of those holidays or special days that we tend to recognize like we do July 4th or Memorial Day. It commemorates the day that the United States Flag was adopted back in 1777.
 
I can remember after 9/11, flags flew everywhere...on front porches, flagpoles, from cars and people proudly wore lapel pins.
(BTW...this is NOT a political post at all so if you’re in search of one, check out Facebook)
 

Vic’s Flag!

World Oceans Day is June 8!

There are very few days when I am not at the ocean. With the exception of a few years when I lived in Northern Virginia, I have lived close to the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico most of my life.

Even if you don’t live near the ocean, you might have a trip planned there for summer vacation, so World Oceans Day is for all of us.

Saving the ocean isn’t just because we all like swimming, boating, surfing, and other fun water-related activities.

It’s about caring for our whole planet!

June 6 is D-Day and My Day to Wish My Dad Happy Birthday.

For some, what they know of D-Day is what they learned watching movies such as Saving Private Ryan, which by the way was very well done.
And for those of us who are Boomers, many of us had family members who fought in World War II.
 
You can learn more about June 6, 1944, but to sum it up today marks the 74th Anniversary of the Allied invasion of German Occupied Western Europe.
 
There were over 5,000 ships, 11,000+ aircraft, 13,000 paratroopers,and over 150,000 servicemen. The numbers of those … (23 comments)

Say Something Nice Day is June 1.

There are some days that need to be celebrated 365 days of the year and this certainly is one of them.

Earlier this week, Maria Sapio and Lottie Kendall wrote inspiring posts about serving others through small acts of kindness.

This day seems to fit in so well with their posts. Most of us go through our daily routines without a great deal of thought about what we say to those around us.
They say something to us and then we respond, then vice versa.

However, have you ever thought about how what we say … (26 comments)

Memorial Day 2018…

What does Memorial Day mean to you? If you thought of hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, or a trip to the beach or pool, you would not be alone.
 
However, this day is so much more than that.

It is a day when we honor those who sacrificed their lives while serving in our country’s armed forces.

Before you start your day I hope that you’ll take a moment to think about all of the many men and women who served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Remember the families that were left behind.
Please remember the … (31 comments)

Red Nose Day is May 24! Do You Have Yours?

Some things shouldn’t be and yet they are. Childhood poverty is one of them. The goal of Red Nose Day is aimed at stamping out this thing that shouldn’t be.

 
Started in the U.K. in 1988, Red Nose Day made its way across the pond to the U.S. in 2015. It has since spread to other countries including Germany, Finland, and China.

Red Nose Day is organized by Comic Relief. Learn more about the History of the Red Nose.

National Chocolate Chip Day is May 15!

You didn’t expect me to let this day pass, did you? There is a day that celebrates the wonderful, able-to- satisfy a- chocolate craving- little morsel and that is one day that I have to celebrate.
 
 
Ruth Wakefield...commit her name to your memory if you are a lover of all things chocolate chips, and especially the original Toll House Cookies. If you are interested, read how necessity being the mother of invention rang true in this instance.

-Eat What You Want Day is May 11
You may think that I’ve written this post because I’ve run out of ideas for the week...and to some extent, you might be right. However, I love any post or day that has to do with food!

Our trainer used to tell us that it was good for us to have a cheat day at least one day a week.

What I discovered was that by giving us permission to eat what we wanted one day a week, Larry and I never really did.

You’d think we would have pigged out on junk food, burgers, … (31 comments)

World Book Night is April 23, 2018
 
Imagine what it would be like if you could not read.  Depressing as it may sound, the U.S. illiteracy rate has not changed in 10 years.

Of note, the literacy rate in the U.S. is 99% officially. However, America has a functional illiteracy rate of 22%. What this means is that tens of millions of adults may not be able to read a street sign or menu. They may not be able to read the note from their children’s teacher.
 
World Book Night began in the U.K. and Ireland in 2011. In 2013, … (26 comments)

International Haiku Day...My Personal Challenge

Let me set the record straight...I have not lost my mind. Up until several years ago, I had only heard of the word haiku in articles I’d read or when watching a movie or television show.

We learned about poetry in school and sometimes had to write our own poem.
I loved reading Shakespeare...his plays and his sonnets.
However, I had no real idea what a haiku was until I read that there was a day celebrating it.

From what I’ve read, there are different styles of haiku but I thought I’d try my hand at the … (25 comments)

April 11 is National Pet Day.

Today is National Pet Day!  For years Larry and I ‘ve had dogs, a cat, birds, and fish. For now, we are a fast food joint for our neighborhood peacocks and squirrels.

 
However, I couldn’t let this day go by without remembering our Brittanys. While we got them many years apart, both ended up going blind at the young age of about 6. We think they had an autoimmune disease that not only caused sudden blindness but other diseases as well.

The International Day of Happiness is March 20...Share Happiness!

If you’re feeling the need for some happiness, then today is your day! It’s not just the First Day of Spring, it is the International Day of Happiness.
 
This day was adopted in 2011 by the UN General Assembly which “recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”.
 
This campaign is coordinated by Action for Happiness which is a non-profit movement made up of people from 160 countries.
It’s important that we understand that … (32 comments)

National Proofreading Day is March 8!

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as National Proofreading Day and it was started by Judy Beaver to honor her mother.

And while it may seem a bit odd that I highlight this day since I have been known to have my share of OOPS moments, proofreading your work is still important.

We all have those moments when a word is misspelled or omitted. We’ve used their when we meant to use they’re.

Our very kind friends will shoot us a text or email us to make us aware of these (never very nice … (31 comments)

Read Across America Day is March 2!
Grab a Book!
 
This is one of my favorite days to highlight because reading is not just fun but it is important for our whole society.

Read Across America Day is sponsored by the National Education Association and has been since 1998.
 
Why is this important to me?

When I finished graduate school, I got a job administering psychological tests. Many had just been released from prison. The first test I had to administer was one to determine if they could read at or above the 3rd-grade level.
I could not believe how many could not read … (17 comments)

World Compliment Day is March 1st!

This is another one of those days that really should be 365 days of the year. World Compliment Day was started by Hans Poortvliet of the Netherlands and it is a day that requires no purchases, no cards, and no flowers.

So put your credit card back and instead put on your thinking cap.

World Compliment Day is the time to recognize what you appreciate in a person and be sure to let them know it.

Think about the last time someone paid you a compliment, and not just “You look nice today.”

Perhaps they told you … (23 comments)

Inane Answering Message Day is January 30.
 
Does anyone leave a voice message anymore? With texts, email, and any number of ways to let someone know that you have a message for them, sometimes I wonder if voicemail is going the way of Rolodexes. (remember them?)

Often when someone tries to reach me and gets my outgoing message, they will instead text me.
They may text me that they left me a message or text me with whatever message they wanted to leave.
 
That’s quite all right with me.
 
Nevertheless, your outgoing message is an integral part of the impression you’re making to … (30 comments)

January 2...a Smorgasbord of Holidays.

While sitting on my behind on January 1, watching a myriad of college football I looked at a calendar to see just what January 2 would hold.
 
It is a veritable smorgasbord of holidays to be celebrated.
 
And, as I’m not quite ready to get back into serious stuff, I thought I’d have fun walking you through the many celebrations that occur on January 2…
 
You might call it a Buffet of holidays because it is indeed Buffet Day. There are tons of “all you can eat” establishments here. I like the idea of a buffet but … (23 comments)

Happy New Year...Come On...What Are You Waiting For??
 
So many expectations and for some, a good deal of pressure. What are your resolutions?  What have you planned?
 
I say charge into the New Year with the resolve to be a better person than you were last year. At least that’s my plan.

 
New Year's Day ... now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
