April 25th

Good afternoon everyone. Got a late start today. Has anyone ever had one of those darn smoke detectors that goes defunked. We have been checking everything and it won’t stop dinging. Even if you take the batteries out of it the noise continues. What’s up with that? We thought eventually it would wear itself out but it didn’t. It seems to be worse at night when the windows are open.

I haven’t had decent sleep for three nights. My son finally got made this morning at 5:00 am and took it down. I went back to sleep and got some very needed sleep.

I guess on payday I’d better check out the prices of smoke detectors. LOL

So I’m now finally rested and ready to move on with the day. However, the sun is gone and the grey clouds have moved in and it looks like we will have a rain storm this afternoon.

National Walk at Lunch Day, April 25

If your work schedule and weather permit, get up from your desk and on your feet for a walk at lunch on Wednesday,  April 25th,  for National Walk@Lunch Day®!

National Walk@Lunch Day® is designed to complement — not compete with — your busy lifestyle. Created to improve personal health and decrease the costs of healthcare for employers and employees, National Walk@Lunch Day® is the start of your new daily walking routine, helping you to improve your health step by step. Participation is fun and easy.

We encourage you to bring or wear comfortable shoes and take a walk at lunch… rain or shine locate a place to walk!

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates the cost to treat illness and chronic disease caused by inactive lifestyles is nearly $1,000 for every family in America, every year. Simply getting 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as a brisk walk at least five times a week, has significant health benefits, lowering the risk of developing or dying from cardiovascular disease, hypertension or type 2 diabetes, and improving the health of muscles, bones and joints.

Join us on Wednesday, April 25th, and begin walking toward a healthier America — and a healthier you.

25 East meets West Day

Contrary to popular belief, East Meets Day West is not a day for teams from different geographies to meet up and compete. It could be applied that way if you wanted to modernize the holiday. On April 25, 1945, East did meet West, when U.S. and Russian troops met for the first time in Germany. There’s even a small memorial commemorating the event.

airstylist Appreciation Day

 

Your hairstylist probably knows more about you than your doctor. A good hairstylist not only gives you the most up-to-date hairstyle that you can replicate at home, he or she is also a good listener. Hairstyling is an artful skill that boosts self-esteem and makes clients feel good. On April 25, take time to show your favorite hairstylist your appreciation.

 

* Schedule an appointment and leave an extra generous tip.

 

* Send flowers or a fruit basket to your favorite stylist.

 

* Send a hand-written card saying, “thank you.”

25 World Penguin Day

World Penguin Day happens on or around April 25th each year. This is the time when millions of penguins migrate north. Unlike other birds that migrate each year, penguins do not fly. Instead, they walk, or waddle to their new home and breeding grounds. It’s a long journey across the ice. Perhaps you saw an example of the migration in the movie ‘Happy Feet’. Many people believe there are penguins at the North Pole, but this is not true. Penguins hold a special place in our hearts. Children love looking at these lovable birds in zoos and aquariums. There are about twenty different species of penguin around the world. They are unique because they do not fear humans, but they rarely get closer than three metres to a person.

There are many things you can do on World Penguin Day. Perhaps the best thing is to donate some money to a charity that helps protect these beautiful creatures. Some penguins are endangered and need our help to survive. There are also fun things that penguin lovers around the world do. For example, why not wear clothes with penguiny colours? If you do this with a group of friends, you could make your very own penguin colony. There are plenty of penguin websites on the Internet for you to find out some more information on penguins. My favourite is PenguinGeek. This site even has live web cams to view penguins around the world. Alternatively, you could rent ‘March of the Penguins’ from your video store. Happy World Penguin Day.
