Mixed Bag....enjoy

A little of this, a little of that to share …

American Adventures Month - American Adventures Month celebrates vacationing in the Americas. Whether, traveling in luxury or primitive conditions, tourists are encouraged to explore South, Central and North America. Experiencing the Americas in a variety of ways unlocks new worlds for all travelers.

Happiness Happens Month - It’s Happiness Happens Month! Our 16th President put it best when he said, “People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Happiness is truly a state of mind, and it’s up to us to determine to be happy! There are 3 purposes to reserving this month:
Get happy during Happiness Happens Month!
Recognize & express happiness
Listen to others talk about their happiness

National Panini Month - Hot off the grill, in honor of the third annual National Panini Month, Sargento Cheese has invited food lovers to switch up their usual sandwich routine and celebrate the delicious goodness of a panino during the month of August.

Although the panino is a traditional Italian recipe, Americans have come to embrace it – as evidenced by its place as a lunchtime favorite at delis and cafes around America. However, food lovers don’t have to reserve the great taste of a panino for eating out only.

Respect Parents Day (August 1st) - Parents’ Day is held on the fourth Sunday of every July.  It was established in 1994 for “recognizing, uplifting and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”

World Wide Web (August 1st) - Take a couple minutes to reflect how the Web has changed your life, your ways of communicating, how you research, shop, and the other million different things we can do today.  Then pause for a few moments and think what changes will occur over the next decade or two.  I hope that the good lord allows me a few more years to observe and enjoy it.

Simply put, the World Wide Web is a way to share resources with many people at the same time, even if some of those resources are located at opposite ends of the world. If you think of it as a research paper that lets each footnote take you right to the original source, then you've got the basic idea.

How has the World Wide Web and Internet changed your life?


National Underwear Day (August 4th) – when I saw this subject, I started laughing and knew right away, doing the research for this topic was going to be fun.  Second listing from my Google search was – ‘National Underwear Day at’  Take a couple minutes to visit this web site, as they do provide a nice recap about this day.

Purple Heart Day (August 7th) – Is a US military decoration awarded in the name of the President to those who have been wounded or killed while serving on or after April 5, 1917.  It is the oldest award that is still given to members of the US Military.  I was first awarded on February 22, 1932 and nearly two million Purple Hearts have been awarded since that date.


A woman was flying from Seattle to San Francisco.  Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.

The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off of the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind A man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her seeing-eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, "Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"
The blind lady said, "No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs."

Picture this:

All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a seeing-eye dog!  The pilot was even wearing sunglasses People scattered.  They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines! 

True story.....

Have a great day and remember....

For the second time today, I find myself at a favorite eating establishments and using their WiFi to post this article.  With some luck, my new router will arrive tomorrow - but then me a good reason to visit others.
