Happy July 13th!
Fool's Paradise Day is today.
This special day seems a bit like an oxymoron. How can a fool reach, or experience, Paradise? And, how could a place BE Paradise, if fools inhabit the place? We don't know the answers to these important questions. We can only speculate, as we have yet to find the creator of this special day. We will leave the philosophical thought about this day to you the reader.
In the meantime.................. Have a wonderful Fool's Paradise Day!
It's also Barbershop Music Appreciation Day, a day to relax and enjoy the sweet voices of the Sweet Adelines, or a Barbershop Quartet.
Edna Mae Anderson of Tulsa, Oklahoma invited some women to her home to sing on July 13, 1945. Their husbands were members of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA). The ladies wanted to participate in the singing fun and enjoyment. On that evening, the "Sweet Adelines" were born. The group later became Sweet Adelines International., which now boasts hundreds of groups and thousands for members.
And finally, it's Embrace Your Geekness Day, a great day to be a Geek. Or, to know a Geek.
A geek is an individual who is highly intelligent (brainy) and technically oriented. They are most often associated with the computer, and computer systems world. A geek is usually formal, studious and into his technical world, often to the exclusion of all else. A geek is closely related to a "Nerd". A nerd however, may or may not possess technical expertise.
Some people view the term "Geek" with a negative connotation. Are they jealous of your knowledge and skills, perhaps? We certainly think so.
Enjoy Embrace Your Geekness Day to the fullest. Spend plenty of time with your computer. Talk computer lingo and jargon. If you are a geek, stand tall and proud. Isn't it great to be so brilliant and gifted!?
The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing preserves it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
We must remember that a right lost to one is lost to all.
