Good morning wonderful people,

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations


 This day is for all of you people who have realized that the company will not make it without you.  NATIONAL WORKAHOLICS DAY does appreciate the hard workers who get the job done.  Just don’t be a fanatic, and strive for a more balanced life.


We celebrate that immodest beach wear that “exploded” onto the beaches and pools with NATIONAL BIKINI DAY.  Named after the Bikini Atoll, where nuclear testing was conducted, designer Louis Reard revealed his creation in 1946 and called it the bikini because of its meltdown effect on the public.


It may be a little warm outside to make s’mores over a campfire, but that doesn’t stop GRAHAM CRACKER DAY from happening.  Initially developed by Presbyterian minister Sylvester Graham, he wanted a treat that would curb his “sinful cravings” and came up with this golden goodie.


Our dessert of the day is as American as apple pie.  Actually, take that slice of pie, encase it in crust and celebrate APPLE TURNOVER DAY.  Now, you can go to ALL the trouble to make some, and I am sure they would be scrumptious, or you can just go to McDonalds and pick up one or two or three.
