Today is National Fossil Day.

National Fossil Day is a celebration organized to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational value.

So check out some fossils at some point today. And even if you couldn’t visit a museum or park this National Fossil Day, ancient creatures will be glad to see you whenever you can meet them at a museum or other venue of your choice.

Today is Free RPG Day.

So don’t forget to go down to your local rpg or hobby shoppe, and see if they’re giving away the various Free RPG Day quick-start rules and adventures for any of your favourite games.

And don’t forget to pass the word on Free RPG Day to folks. This is the perfect opportunity to get some of those non-gamer friends and loved ones involved with the hobby, and to introduce them to some great rpg systems out there.

And a Happy Free RPG Day to all! 🙂

Today is World Oceans Day.

World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. World Oceans Day has been around since 2002, and was officially recognised by the United Nations in 2008, recognising June 8th as the day. Not sure what this year’s theme is, but individuals and organizations across the planet are taking action for prevention of plastic pollution in our ocean.

The oceans are a necessary, nay vital!, part of our ecosystem, and it’s the only one we’ve got. Be kind to the environment, not just the oceans, but also enjoy the oceans today and everyday.

And remember, healthy oceans = healthy planet!

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Towel Day!

While it is a celebration of the life of Douglas Adams and all that good stuff, there is a message in there as well for everyone, even if one doesn’t see it. So do something towel-ish today, and celebrate all things Hitchhiker. 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day! May 13, 2018

Happy Mother’s Day.

Today is the day we celebrate our mothers and thank them for everything they’ve done for us throughout our lives. Those of us who are older have more to be thankful for than the younger folks out there whose mothers have yet to share all the joys and sorrows that their children bring over the course of years.

I will be giving my mother her card today, have flowers that are being sent to her, and am taking my mom out for supper this evening (or perhaps Monday night), but those are just the physical tokens that we give to our mothers on this day. It’s important today to spend some time with our mothers, to cook them a meal or take them out to a restaurant, but above all to share some quality time with our mothers.

Hug your mother today, if you live close enough to do so. Make sure you give her a call today if you do not.

I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. We may not show it year round, but you *are* very much loved and cherished by us, your sons and daughters.

Goddess Bless.

Today is International Tabletop Day.

International Tabletop Day is a celebration for all the fans of tabletop gaming. A single day where the whole world is brought together in a common purpose of spending time together and having fun.

While I have no plans to run any games today at the local gaming store or the comic shoppes that I frequent, I would like to encourage all my gamer friends to get out there today and run and/or play some tabletop games, be they board games, miniature games, or roleplaying games.

Have a great gaming day today! 🙂

Folks should not forget that today we celebrate Earth Hour.

Tonight’s the night that we switch off the lights between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour is designed to raise awareness of climate change, and was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It is observed by at least 4,000 cities in 88 countries of the world (including the city of Ottawa).

So, remember, turn off the lights for an hour tonight and honour Earth Hour.

Good morning, everyone!

Today is the first day of Spring. Not sure what the weather is going to be like today (haven’t checked the forecast yet), but I’m hoping for a nice day. This is Ottawa, so one expects whatever weather one expects. 🙂

I just want to wish everyone a very good, very happy First Day of Spring!

Hope the weather wherever you are is balmy, the skies are clear, and that you get outside and spend the day in the fresh, Spring air!
