Cell Phone Courtesy Month...Chime In!
 
This one should be a no-brainer since cell phones have been the norm for years and cell phone etiquette has been discussed in posts and all over Cyberville. 
 
So just to sum it up for those who have yet to get it (or if you’d like to copy this and hand it to an offender you know)...here are some helpful tips for cell phone courtesy.
And yet there are those little annoying habits that some cell phone users have that just don’t seem to go away.
 
For example…

Funky Friday...
 
I was perusing the internet and discovered that today is Apple Turnover Day. And, since it’s been a busy week with busy days and not as much sleep, I wasn’t sure if Apple Turnover Day meant this…
 


Or this…
 


See what happens when you have too much free time on your hands!  Have a fun and funky Friday!!!

Happy Fourth of July, 2019!
 
For many of us, we were born into our wonderful country, freedom and independence are what we’ve grown up knowing. And for that privilege, we have our Founding Fathers (and Mothers) to thank. 
 
 
So on this July 4, while we take time off from work and head to the beach or prepare for a backyard barbecue,  don’t forget to give thanks to George (Washington), Alexander (Hamilton), Benjamin (Franklin), John(Adams), Samuel (Adams), Thomas (Jefferson), James (Madison), John (Jay), and many others.
 
Happy Birthday, America…
Happy July 4th!

Pick Up a Rod & Reel...It’s Go Fishing Day...

No, I haven’t gone totally daffy (yet.)  Larry and I have been talking about children and how buried their heads are in their devices. And the discussion turned to fishing and how we wish more children had the opportunity to learn to fish.
 
I love to fish. Not crazy about removing the fish from the hook but that’s why I have Larry around, as well as gloves and a hook remover.  With the exception of certain fish, we are "catch & release" fisherpeople.
 
 
We tried once to take our grandsons fishing once and … (29 comments)

National Flip Flop Day is June 14...Celebrate for a Good Cause
 
You don’t have to be a lover of flip flops (as I am) to participate in celebrating this day!
Tropical Smoothie Cafe is offering a 16oz Sunshine SmoothieⓇ when you come in between 2PM-7 PM wearing your flip flops on June 14 to help celebrate National Flip Flop Day.
 
 
Besides serving nutritious and fun foods, including vegan and gluten-free, they have, as their name suggests, fun smoothies from mocha madness to mango magic.
 
And, if you want to get a little healthier they have superfood smoothies such as avocolada, orange ginger … (19 comments)

Doughnuts and Chocolate Ice Cream...Yum!
 
Barbara Todaro...Do not read this!  Today, June 7 is National Doughnut Day AND National Chocolate Ice Cream Day.  Outside of chicken fried steak, these are two of my favorite things to eat.
 
Before I get a lecture on how bad sugar is for you...I get it. But in my life, if I can’t have one doughnut or a scoop of chocolate ice cream on occasion, then I’m not sure what kind of life that would be.

What many may know of D-Day is through having seen Saving Private Ryan, which is an excellent film. Boomers, like myself, had parents and uncles who served in World War II. However, many who returned chose not to talk about what they had experienced.

I knew only that my father was a photographer on an airplane that day. His birthday happens to be June 6 and he told me that he had joked with his CO that he should get the day off.

Honoring Those Who Sacrificed for Us
 
As others have pointed out, this day... this whole weekend, is not just for BBQs and pool parties or appliance sales and a three-day weekend.
 

 
 
 
This is a weekend set aside to remember and honor those men and women who gave their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
 
And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave. Joseph Rodman Drake

Red Nose Day is May 23, 2019...Let’s See Yours!
 
This weekend we’ll be gathering to celebrate a family member’s high school graduation. There will be lots of food (Texas BBQ) and a strong showing of family support.
 
Most reading this will be celebrating Memorial Day Weekend with some similar kind of gathering. Unfortunately, there are children in our great country who don’t know where their next meal will come from or where they will be sleeping each night. They may not have the luxury of quality healthcare that our children have.

Motivational Monday...Give for Global World Wish Day
 
April 29 is Global World Wish Day and your opportunity to help grant the wishes of sick children. This day marks the anniversary of the beginning of the Make a Wish Foundation.
 
We are all aware of this wonderful charitable organization and I hope that you’ll continue to support them in any way that you can.  However, I’d like to tell you again about another charitable organization that plays an intricate role in helping facilitate many of these wishes.

Walk On The Wild Side Day is April 12...I’m Not Sure I Even Have One
 
This is one of those days that I’m not quite sure how to celebrate. When I came upon this celebratory day I had to pause because quite frankly, I’m not sure I have a wild side.
 
It’s not that I don’t know people who have a wild side...there are members here whom I perceive to have one (not mentioning who)

International Children’s Book Day is April 2!
 
It was during one of my practicums in grad school that I realized that many people cannot read beyond the third-grade level. I also learned of the consequences it can have on someone’s life.  
 
You can learn more about the literacy rates. But did you know that every year “one in six young adults, more than 1.2 million, drop out of high school.”
 
This is why I take every occasion to encourage others to try to inspire our youth to read books and to help those who have difficulty reading.

Don’t Fall For These April Fool Tips When Preparing Your House for Sale.

When you announce that you are or have put your home on the market, everyone has a tip or two (more like twenty) to offer. There are some that are very helpful. But alas, there are some that you would do better smiling, saying Thank you and moving on.
 
The condition of your house, how a buyer perceives it, is part of the real estate trilogy...Price, Location, and Condition. Each one affects the other.

This Week...Birthday Wishes to Sharon Tara and Marco Giancola
 
It must be in the stars because both of these people, Sharon Tara and Marco Giancola , are two of the most creative people I know!!!
 
 
I’ve had the honor of meeting both of them and they are exactly who you see when you read their posts.
 
 
A few years ago (2015) I got to finally meet Sharon when she paid a surprise visit to her mother who was wintering in Florida. Ashley, her beautiful daughter, was the one who made it all happen. It was as if we’d known each other for years!!!!

Goodness knows I’ve had my share of them! While I’m not quite sure who or why this day was started, I can tell you that it’s really healthy to share your moments like these with others.
 
This is a story I’ve shared in the past but tough...I’m sharing it again. Many years ago when staging was still in the “What is that?” phase, an agent called and asked if I would consult on a listing he had and if he could attend since he was new to the concept of staging.

World Book Day is March 7! What Are You Reading?

Reading is important not just to me but to our whole society. And for so many of us, having the time to sit down with a good book is like a special treat. It's time to celebrate World Book Day.
 
When I open a book for the first time (or in the case of my Kindle reading app, click it open) I feel like a kid ready to embark on a new adventure. The journey may take me alongside Agent Pendergast as he seeks a killer let loose in NYC or I … (33 comments)

How Is Your Grammar Curb Appeal?  March 4 Is Grammar Day!
 
It has been a goal of mine each year to become less judgemental of others and for the most part, I’ve been fairly successful. However, there is one area that continues to be a tough one for me to conquer...grammar. (You can learn more about Grammar Day!)
 
I’m not talking about using 10 letter words or sounding as if you were straight out of Professor Higgins’ laboratory. Nor am I talking about those for whom English is their second (or third) language.
 
However, the everyday grammar that you and I should have … (29 comments)

Happy Valentine’s Day

However you will be spending your day today, I hope that you are spending it with someone you care about. Perhaps your better half, a friend, relative, your parent or child...the important thing is that you have people around you who matter to you and you to them.
 
So bring on the chocolates or roses, get ready for a special dinner, or do what you do every day.
 
 
Just be sure to tell someone special just how special they are to you!!!

Lost Penny Day and Some Thoughts

There is a day that is called Lost Penny Day and was founded by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith to show us how what we consider “petty change” can make a difference in someone’s life.
 
You and I usually find these little gems an annoyance. Our item may cost $1.99 and there’s that penny to add to our loose change collection that is already weighing down our purses or pockets.
 
Some places offer a little tray of pennies for shoppers who may need a penny to complete a transaction or if you don’t want to bother carrying that extra … (28 comments)

Happy Step In a Puddle And Splash Your Friend Day
 
For some reason this special day always makes me think of this community. I have no earthly idea why or what this day stands for or celebrates other than the fact that as a young child, I loved splashing (actually stomping) in puddles.
 
Being here is often like playing in puddles with friends. You laugh, sometimes get a little wet, and feel like you’re a kid again.
 
So, if you’re of a mind, how about stomping in some ActiveRain puddles and having fun with your friends here.
 
What?
 
Yes, I understand that … (32 comments)
