National Margarita Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world

February 22nd is National Margarita Day. I absolutely have to report about this day – it’s a must!

It doesn’t matter what kind of Margarita you partake in. Bacons mom likes a Habanero Margarita.  She says it’s cool and refreshing and then has a slight heat when swallowing. Yep that sounds like Bacons mom. Sweet and hot. Chitter Chatter. Don’t tell the oinker I said that.

Enjoy a Margarita today my friends!

President’s Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today, February 19th is President’s Day here in the United States.  Do you know what President’s Day actually means?   Sure it means that it’s a holiday and there are lots of President Day sales going on; but, it’s much more important than that.

President’s Day is intended to honor all of the American Presidents but most significantly George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

George Washington is considered the “Father of His Country” and was born on February 22, 1732.  In 1787, Washington was unanimously elected president by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and took the oath of office in 1789.  He served two terms of office from 1789 until 1797.  After the presidency, Washington retired to his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia.  Do you know Washington’s famous quote?  “I can not tell a lie… I chopped down the Cherry tree.”

Abraham Lincoln was known as “Honest Abe” and was born on February 12, 1809.  Lincoln became president in 1861.  He wrote the Emancipation Proclamation and the The Gettysburg Address.  Lincoln was also the first US President to be assassinated.  He was shot in the Ford’s Theatre by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865.  Do you know the address to the White House?  It’s 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20500

Happy President’s Day to all of our wonderful Presidents that have served our country!

Do a Grouch a Favor Day –

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today is Do a Grouch a Favor Day.  Do it today and make the world a better place!

Everyone has been a grouch at some point in their lives.  Some people are occasionally grouchy while others maintain that grouchy attitude all of the time.  You know who they are.  Sometimes people get grouchy because they are tired, had a bad day and the weather outside is bad.  It doesn’t take much sometimes to put people in a grouchy mood.

Today your goal is to look around for someone that is in a grouchy mood.  Do them a favor that will cheer them up.  Hug them.  Lick them.  Be nice to them.  Bring them the paper.  You know – do something nice for them to see if you can see a smile on their face.  You can do it.  I know you can!

National Thank a Mailman Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Friends, yesterday February 4th was National Thank a Mailman Day.  But the mailman doesn’t run on Sundays.  So we need to make sure we acknowledge them today.  Do you hear that pups? That means don’t chase the mailman on this date! Instead of chasing the mailman, today gives you a chance to say thank you. They deliver the mail six days a week regardless of the weather either by postal truck and walking routes. Do you remember the old Pony Express motto? “Neither rain, nor snow, nor death of the night, can keep us from our duty!” This motto is believed to be taken in part from a motto dating back to ancient times! You also hear it this way some times, “Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we’ll carry the mail. We will not fail.”

So pets near and far away, go sit by the mailbox today. Maybe bring a bone and give it to the mailman. Tell him thank you.

National Inane Answering Machine Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

All important announcement – today is National Inane Answering Machine Day and is always on January 30th.  It is actually a copyrighted holiday?  Negative that is not a typing error, it is “Inane”.  You don’t even know what that means do you?  Go ahead and admit it, Bacon’s mother had to look it up too.  Poor kid needs to advance her vocabulary besides talking gibberish to that oinker all day.  I went ahead and copied this from the dictionary for you.  You’re welcome!

“inane”, Pronunciation: \i-ˈnān\
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): inan·er; inan·est
Etymology: Latin inanis
Date: 1662
1 : empty, insubstantial
2 : lacking significance, meaning, or point : silly
synonyms see insipid
— inane·ly adverb
— inane·ness \-ˈnān-nəs\ noun

With that being said and us knowing what ‘inane’ means now, let’s continue on this grand holiday of “National Inane Answering Message Day”.  First lets clarify the meaning of an “inane” answering machine messages. We all get them and they drive us crazy which for some cases is a short trip – HA!  An inane message is a senseless or meaningless message, or a prank call. Or, it could be an insane message.

So, National Inane Answering Message Day is a day to end those numerous, annoying insane answering machine messages. We all *know* that’s not going to be accomplished in one day but we can try, can’t we?  So for today, no prank calls!  Chatters and laughs.

National Compliment Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

Keeping his hands on the nuts of the world.

 

Here for another important message for the day. Today, January 24th, is commemorated as National Compliment Day every year. It is a very special day and celebrated in most parts of the world apart from the USA. This day represents a positive theme – a positive tone in a positive atmosphere – everywhere you are whether it be at home, the grocery market, work or that place the humans feel to punish themselves by what they call “working out”.

Compliments – compliments – compliments – that is what we most do today. Have you ever noticed how someone just brightens up at a compliment, even a complete stranger? Do you notice how much harder you work when you get a compliment? So today, we shall compliment our little hearts out.

So here are some suggestions that can help you today on your National Compliment Day.

  • Give your co-worker an honest to goodness compliment on something at work. It doesn’t matter how small or big, express your thoughts in a generous compliment. Hey go for the gold here and even try to compliment that boss. Let them wonder what you’re up to..ha!
  • Compliment that person who is losing weight.
  • Compliment that human that is consistently working out in their hamster ball.
  • Compliment that human that really has touched you in some point of your life in a good way.
  • Compliment your spouse. Sometimes you humans don’t express your feelings enough to each other. Maybe if you compliment them, they’ll give you more nuts for the winter.
  • By all means, compliment your pets. They’re always there for you no matter what, even when you come home upset. They just want to love on you.
  • Compliment the guy that cuts you off in traffic this morning. Maybe he won’t hear you but you can smile and wave. Maybe instead of uttering fowl language under your breath, think to yourself, “Isn’t he a nice guy for getting in front of me blocking me from any danger.”
  • Compliment your mother and father – if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t be here. Heck, have your spouse compliment them too. If it wasn’t for them, your spouse wouldn’t have you.
  • Compliment your pups… I mean children. I’m sure they do something else besides being destructive.
  • Compliment your teacher. Compliment your bus driver or your chauffer.
  • While you’re at it – compliment nature and all of its little creatures, like me 🙂 Hey, you can even throw us some extra feed outside, we won’t say no.

You get the drift. You give out compliments and you give a positive sense of well being. You make someone feel great with just a few words. We all know that words can be so destructive. Let’s turn it around today.

I, Journalist Rocky the Squirrel, challenge you. I challenge you to give out a minimum of FIVE compliments today. I bet you can do more but FIVE is a good start. Are you going to take the challenge?

This is Journalist Rocky the Squirrel signing off. Have a fantastic day you beautiful humans!
