"Be kind. Work hard. Stay humble. Smile often. Stay loyal. Be honest. Travel when possible. Never stop learning. Love always."
"Dude! I said a little to the left!" (Another reason Pinocchio wished to be a real boy.)
One day, three unemployed factory workers heard that a large food company was enlarging and needed more staff.
So they went downtown to see if they could get themselves a job.
After filling out their applications, each one was interviewed and each one managed to get hired.
As they were waiting to be assigned their new duties, a foreman came by and spoke to the hiring boss.
The foreman told the boss that he didn’t think it was such a good idea as one of the workers had snapped for no apparent reason at his last job.
Also, a second was said to have had cracked up after severe mental stress.
The third, he believed was their father who he felt was a bit odd but he couldn’t put his finger on it.
The hiring boss reassured the foreman and said that they would start on something easy and after a week, the company would re-assess them to see if they would be kept on.
The foreman reluctantly agreed and asked the boss where he thought they should start.
The boss replied, “Why not take them and put them in our Cereal Division – Snap, Crackle, and Pop should work out fine down there.”
It's Haunted Refrigerator Night Day! Let's celebrate the horrors lurking in the back of the refrigerator. Maybe it's time for us to clean out the refrigerator. It's Buy a Doughnut Day (here's your excuse for a doughnut; doughnuts were brought to New England by the Pilgrims who learned how to make them while in Holland during 1607-1620), Checklist Day (here's a day to appreciate our life-saver that helps prevent disappointments and even tragedies as in the case of aircraft pre-flight checklists), Create a Funeral Day (not to be morbid, but how do you want to be remembered?; this is a day to think about what would be important to you and write things down), Publicist Day (a day to appreciate those professionals for improving brand communications; father of "modern PR" was Ivy Lee with the first press release in 1906 in the New York Times), Candy Corn Day (a Halloween staple; manufactured in 1880's by George Runninger of the Wanderle Candy Company), Mischief Night (also known as Devil's Night or Hell's Night; roots are in England 19th century; ostensibly for mild mischief such as soaping windows and TP-ing houses; unfortunately, sometimes turns into vandalism), Speak Up for Service Day (a day to honor the young who do community service without recognition; a day to encourage the young to participate in community service), Pumpkin Bread Day (a wonderful use of the pumpkins we're using for Halloween), Sugar Addiction Awareness Day (a day to remind us that sugar is everywhere in our food, even beyond the obvious candy we'll be getting tomorrow), and Audio Drama Day (commemorates the anniversary of the 1938 radio broadcast of Orson Welles "War of the Worlds" which was so realistic to the listeners some were panicking; the day celebrates all audio theater whether by stage, podcast or radio). In 1905, Russian tsar Nicholas II issued the October Manifesto which created the elected legislative body Duma and established universal suffrage for men; it would lead to the formation of a new constitution in 1906. In 1864, 'Last Chance Gulch', a mining town in Montana, has grown large enough for a proper name; Pumpkinville is bypassed in favor of Helena.
