There are a lot of things to celebrate today if you feel the urge. Let's start with Administrative Professionals Day and give a hearty "hurrah" for Joyce! She's the best secretary, bookkeeper, clerk and jack-of-all-trades employee that anybody could ask for. She's one of those people you miss when she doesn't come to work because things just don't run as smoothly. I learned today that you do not wait until 8:30 am to run to Kents for a baked goody - apparently all businesses are celebrating with that type of treat and there are none left (unless you want a doughnut).
After you've celebrated Administrative Professionals Day with your doughnut, you might want to go outside for a picnic lunch and celebrate Earth Day. Earth Day 2009 marks the beginning of "The Green Generation Campaign", a day of action and civic participation to defend the core principals of: 1. A carbon-free future based on renewable energy; 2. An individual's commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption; 3. Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.
Earth Day essentially started in 1970 when Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin organized a nationwide environmental protest to thrust the environment onto the national agenda. Earth Day is the only event celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths, and nationalities.
