My, my, sniff that cornscateous air. I suppose it smells like money to farmers and like heavenly food to sweet-corn lovers. But that air is hot, humid and heavy and makes air conditioning my constant companion. “Cornscateous” (pronounced “corn SKAY shuss”) is really a word if you believe the Old Farmer’s Almanac. I tried to look it up in my 1971 dictionary and my 2009 edition, and the word isn’t there. The old almanac makers dreamed it up, I figure, and used it to signify a time in July when the air is damp and warm, which the farmers considered ideal for growing corn. Keep smilin’, folks, it looks good on you.

When the piercing power and sultry heat of the sun abate, and almighty Zeus sends the autumn rains, and men's flesh comes to feel far easier,—for then the star Sirius passes over the heads of men, who are born to misery, only a little while by day and takes greater share of night—then, when it showers its leaves to the ground and stops sprouting, the wood you cut with your axe is least liable to worm.

25 June of each year is the "Day of the Seafarer", recognizing the invaluable contribution seafarers make to international trade and the world economy, often at great personal cost to themselves and their families. By generating interaction on the web about seafarers, we want to show respect, recognition and gratitude to seafarers everywhere. The universal outreach of social media will raise awareness of the vital role that seafarers play in the world economy and, in many respects, in sustainable development, enabling ships to carry than 90% of world trade safely, efficiently and with minimal impact on the environment.

Get out there and go fishing! It’s as simple as that. Whether you prefer to go boat fishing and troll along with your bait and tackle trailing in the water behind you, or standing in hip waders while casting your fly over the top of the water, there’s a form of fishing that will appeal to everyone. Even if you don’t like fishing, you have to admit that sitting quietly on the edge of a lake with a fishing pole and a case of beer beats even the best day at work! Now Go Fish!

The successful preaching of Christianity at Antioch to non-Jews led the church at Jerusalem to send Barnabas there to oversee the movement (Acts 11:20–22). He found the work so extensive and weighty that he went to Tarsus in search of Paul (still referred to as Saul), "an admirable colleague", to assist him. Paul returned with him to Antioch and labored with him for a whole year (Acts 11:25–26). At the end of this period, the two were sent up to Jerusalem (44 AD) with contributions from the church at Antioch for the relief of the poorer Christians in Judea.

The day can be used to reexamine your goals, find paths to achieve them, and instill in yourself the belief that your goals are attainable. The hope that you can achieve your goal is what will drive you forward. It is a day to reflect on all those who have hoped in the past, and to use their hope to inspire you. Sometimes hope may seem like all you have left, but it can’t be quashed. As Andy Dusfresne said in The Shawshank Redemption, "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."

The Rapture may not have seemed like a joking matter or much of a reason to have a party time for the people who believed it would happen back in 2011, and it’s easy understand why. Imagine believing that 200 million people all over the globe suddenly get sucked up into the sky without a word of warning, amid horrific earthquakes of unprecedented magnitude and relentless plagues–that’s kind of scary, isn’t it? Luckily, the predictions turned out to be completely false. But why let the opportunity to celebrate not having been annihilated go to waste? If the survival of the human race is not an occasion for celebration, what is? So what are you waiting for? Time to throw a Rapture Day Party!
