Born on the Fourth of July

I can't believe we are approaching the fourth of July and the year is half over. As we watch the news everyday, even though things aren't great, we still have a lot for which to be thankful. Our freedom is the biggest one. To Celebrate Our Freedom, here is a special offer from me, send a soldier a Thank You card with my compliments. Log onto If you don't know a soldier personally, check out this website,, for list of names and addresses.

Here are some other occasions for celebration and to send greetings during July. (Dates and holidays from The Earth Calendar).

Quirky Holidays from WellCat

July 3 - Stay Out of the Sun Day -- For health's sake, give your skin a break today. No Joke - It really is Skin Care Awareness month. Remember to wear your sunscreen.

July 6 - Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day -- Show your appreciation to your webmaster by taking him out for some good food. That way, he/she/it will feel loved and have the energy to fix all of the typos on your site.

July 10 - Don't Step on a Bee Day -- reminds kids and grownups that now is the time when going barefoot can mean getting stung by a bee. If you get stung, tell Mom.

July 13 - Embrace Your Geekness Day -- Into dungeon games, comic books and doing vampire dress-up? Spend endless hours going strange places on the internet? You're a geek, and this is the day to roar!

July 13 - Gruntled Workers Day -- There's so much news about disgruntled workers that today's the day for Gruntled Workers to Unite! Drive to a fast food restaurant and say, "Thanks, your service is fast. Have a nice day."

July 15 - Be a Dork Day says that this is the day to be a Dork and be proud. Wear goofy clothing, don't brush your teeth, eat yucky food, and fall off a swing set.

July 23 - Hot Enough For Ya Day -- Here’s the day when the tired old greeting actually gains acceptance. Go ahead, say it, if you don’t have anything else to add.

July 27 - Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day -- Walking your plants around the neighborhood enables them to know their environment, thereby providing them with a sense of knowing, bringing on wellness.

Hope you have a Great July!
