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.
A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
This year, NATIONAL BEAN COUNTER DAY falls a little short of Tax Day on April 18. The idea is to give the accountants their due and a break after the busy tax season; they deserve it. Thank you for keeping us on track and off those nasty audits.
Our Flowering Friends
Spring is definitely in bloom with NATIONAL ORCHID DAY. There are over 25,000 species of this flowering plant, each one with its unique colors and fragrances. The founders of this day, Mike, and Faith Young, loved orchids so much they wanted to name their little girl, Orchid. Sadly, they lost her during labor. They went on to name her Orchid Faith and were able to register their own plant with the Royal Horticultural Society of England – the Radiant Faith Orchid.
Education and Information
NATIONAL HEALTHCARE DECISIONS DAY reminds us to plan ahead. Get those living wills, trusts and wills taken care of now so when the time comes, your wishes are met, and it is a lot easier on your loved ones.
Today’s Fashion Trends
A lot of us won’t be working today or maybe working from home. If so, then NATIONAL WEAR YOUR PAJAMAS TO WORK DAY is a natural. Stay comfy and lounge while you go about your Sunday. If you do have to go in today and want to wear your PJs, I would make sure you have the all clear first.
On Today’s Menu…
Let’s poach some eggs, toast an English muffin, fry some Canadian Bacon, and spoon out a little Hollandaise sauce to celebrate NATIONAL EGGS BENEDICT DAY. Remember this delicious dish doesn’t just have to be for breakfast.
