Today is my Work Anniversary. I started working at Canada Post on March 17th, 1980 – 43 years ago. I’ve been retired since 2012, for almost 11 years. Thank you Canada Post for my pension and all of the wonderful co-workers I met along my working career.
The beginning of the fiscal year for many businesses is also April Fools Day. So beware the jokesters this morning and don’t fall for their practical jokes. 😉
All children love to jump in muddy puddles. So if you have a chance celebrate National Jump in Muddy Puddles Day. Or you can read a Peppa Pig book with someone young enough to enjoy jumping in muddy puddles.
Sourdough is delicious. So have a slice and celebrate National Sourdough Bread Day.
When talking about intergenerational harm you need look no further than the African Blacks and the effects of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Ripped from their homes and shipped across the ocean to a cold cruel land. Treated as livestock rather than people. Today is the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
Today is also Tolkien Reading Day. So grab a book and read about the hobbits adventures and trials.
My favorite nut is the Pecan. Although there may be disagreements on how to pronounce it, whether it be pe-can or pec-an, they are so good to eat. My holiday in Florida included a new cereal, cinnamon and pecan. Wonderful for breakfast. I’m not certain if it was a limited time flavour or just too popular, but I can’t find it in the local stores again. 😉
