A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
NATIONAL BOSSES DAY gives a nod to those who are put in charge and take on a lot of responsibility. It is up to them to set the example of what they expect out of their workers. Be a little nicer to the big guy (or gal) today – maybe even take him (or her) out to lunch.

NATIONAL MULLIGAN DAY gives us another chance to do it right. It is perfectly acceptable to ask for a mulligan in a casual game of golf and to be granted one. So it is in life. If there is something you need to redo to make it right – today is the day for it.
