Mother’s Day!


Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday May 13th.

In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You!

Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You!

“May the 4th be with you.” What started as pun warmly shared by fans has become a full-fledged Star Wars holiday: Star Wars Day, a special once-a-year celebration of the galaxy far, far away.

One of the earliest known records of “May the 4th” used in popular culture is in 1979, as described here by author Alan Arnold while he was chronicling the making of The Empire Strikes Back for Lucasfilm:

“Margaret Thatcher has won the election and become Britain’s first woman prime minister. To celebrate their victory her party took a half page of advertising space in the London Evening News. This message, referring to the day of victory, was ‘May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations,’ further proof of the extent to which Star Wars has influenced us all.”

Once the Internet allowed Star Wars fans around the world to connect with one another, May the 4th soon became a grassroots tradition each year, with fans online and offline proclaiming it “Star Wars Day.”

Ultimately, as Star Wars Day was created by the fans, it is truly their day. Hosting movie marathons, sharing greetings on social media, cooking Star Wars recipes – there are no wrong ways to celebrate May the 4th, and each year we’re amazed at the creative ways that fans mark the occasion. With Star Wars alive like never before, we hope you’ll join in this year.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day


April 26th 2018 is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

For nearly 25 years the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program has been “Leading the way…” inspiring young dreamers to dream big. Inspiring them to dream of themselves in boardrooms, city halls, union halls and concert halls. Inspiring them to believe in themselves as much as they believe in their superheroes. Inspiring them to envision a future for themselves in a workplace where everyone is welcomed.

“The core goal of the program is to help girls and boys begin to think about their futures—what careers they’re interested in, how they’ll balance that work with their lives at home and what they need to learn in school to help them achieve the goals,” says Carolyn McKecuen, executive director of the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation.

Earth Day 2018 — End Plastic Pollution!


Earth Day 2018 is focused on mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution.

Plastic objects that we use once and discard, or single-use plastics, are a growing critical problem of global proportion.

From poisoning and injuring marine life to the ubiquitous presence of plastics in our food to disrupting human hormones, the exponential growth of plastics is threatening our planet’s survival.


3 Tips to Reduce Plastic Usage

  1. Bring your own shopping bag — somewhere between five billion and one trillion plastic bags are used each year around the world. Reduce waste by bringing your own reusable produce bags or skipping them entirely.
  2. Stop buying bottled water — Unless there’s some kind of contamination crisis, plastic water bottles are an easy target for reducing waste. Instead, keep a refillable bottle handy.
  3. Say no to straws — Whether for home use or when you’re ordering a drink at a bar or restaurant, plastic straws are often a single-use item that’s just not necessary.

Today is Tax Deadline!

This year, Tax Day falls on April 17th.

That’s the deadline for filing your 2017 federal tax return, the last day to make a contribution to an individual retirement account for it to count against 2017 income, the deadline to file a tax extension, and the day when quarterly estimated tax payments are due for those who make them.
So why is Tax Day on April 17 this year? Basically, it’s due to a combination of the 15th falling on a Sunday and a holiday unique to Washington, D.C., hitting on Monday the 16th.

The nation’s capital celebrates Emancipation Day to mark the date that President Abraham Lincoln freed slaves there in 1862. While it’s a local holiday, it affects when taxes are due.


Never to worry, next year the tax deadline will be back to April 15th!
