It's Take the Stairs Day and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD)! Wear blue today to show support for our officers as you climb those stairs instead of taking the elevator, listening to Stairway to Heaven. Our law enforcement agencies have a difficult job often under difficult circumstances, just trying to do the best they can. Let's remind them today that we do appreciate everything they do to keep us safe. It's Word Nerd Day! Do you know a logophile, someone who loves word? In their honor, learn a new word or get the latest dictionary or thesaurus app for your favorite word nerd. It's Static Electricity Day (you're reminded of this form of electricity every time you reach for the doorknob and get zapped!; there are 2 types of electricity--one flows along a current such as turning on the lights and the other collects on the surface of an object; remember the experiments as a kid to raise our hair on end?), Play God Day (this day is to encourage us to do something nice as a blessing; there is a reference to Bruce Almighty for this day), Apricot Day (a yummy fruit whether fresh, dried, or canned; in Latin, apricot means "precious"), Choreographers Day (honors all who plan those intricate dance steps of ballet and stage; today is the birthdate of George Balanchine, born 1904 in St. Petersburg, Russia and went on to be one of the most famous choreographer whose works inspire others), and Balloon Ascension Day (commemorates the day in 1793 when balloonist Jean Pierre Blanchard successfully floated in a hot air balloon, 1200 feet above Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was the first successful attempt of aviation in America).
