Mountain Day

WHY? , Sufjan Stevens, Dhani Harrison, Loney Dear,

Mountains are early indicators of climate change and as global climate continues to warm, mountain people — some of the world’s hungriest and poorest — face even greater struggles to survive. The rising temperatures also mean that mountain glaciers are melting at unprecedented rates, affecting freshwater supplies downstream for millions of people. Mountain communities, however, have a wealth of knowledge and strategies accumulated over generations, on how to adapt to climate variability.

Wear Brown Shoes

Really, it was something of a revolution, and a reclamation. Brown shoes are woefully underrepresented, but one should take a look at the places that they do exist. Brown shoes? Brown shoes are on the feet of the most intrepid adventurers, with heavy brown leather shoes with durable soles guiding them into the wilderness to see where it takes them. Brown shoes? They were the absolute mark of a man who was both respectable, well-off, and yet relaxed enough to not need the high-polished shine of black patent leather to prove themselves.

There isn't much information available about this day, so there's a good chance it got started by a rumor. That's what the day is for anyway, to start a rumor! Rumors aren't anything new, they have been going on for centuries. Although starting a rumor is usually frowned upon, today you have an excuse to start one, and that's the best way to celebrate the day.

Marooned Without a Compass

How is your sense of direction? Do you often find yourself going around in circles? Do you feel hopelessly lost? Do you know where you are? If any of these questions describe your current state of being, then you are in tune to this special day.  Check the trees for moss..... moss grows on the shaded, north side of a tree trunk.  Viewed in another way, being marooned without a compass for a day could be a good thing. Our busy life styles seldom leaves time to relax. We can just kick back and enjoy being marooned. Tomorrow, we can head east when the sun rises. In the meantime, I think I see a shady tree.....

When was the last time you gave your fridge a good scrub down? We’re going to venture to guess that it’s been a while. Those Asian leftovers behind your quite possibly curdled milk are probably growing some hauntingly hairy mold. If you’re looking for a way to get into the Halloween mood that doesn’t involve the traditional pumpkin carving or ghost story telling, turn off the lights and gather your friends and family around your fridge and find out what’s been lying dormant inside. The results are sure to be terrifying!

UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.
24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by Member States as a public holiday.

Clean your Virtual Desktop Day was first created by the good people at PCMuseum.ca, to encourage people to sort out their desktops and return it to that pristine vision they received when they first booted up their computer. An orderly desktop has been said to be the sign of an orderly mind, someone who has their work together, and knows what their tool is for and how to use it.
