"Stand for what is right even if that means standing alone."

"That thing is trying to take our jobs!"

A mother, accompanied by her small daughter, was in New York City. The mother was trying to hail a cab, when her daughter noticed several wildly dressed women who were loitering on a nearby street corner.

The mother finally hailed her cab and they both climbed in, at which point the young daughter asks her mother, “Mommy, what are all those ladies waiting for by that corner?”

The mother replies, “Those ladies are waiting for their husbands to come by and pick them up on the way home from work.”

The cabby, upon hearing this exchange, turns to the mother and says, “Ah, C’mon lady! Tell your daughter the truth! For crying out loud…They’re hookers!”

A brief period of silence follows, and the daughter then asks, “Mommy, do the hooker ladies have any children?”

The mother replies, “Of course, Dear. Where do you think cabbies come from?”

It's Hop-a-Park Day! Visit some your local parks today to show support for the community greenery and to get outside with the family to play. A great way to spend a Saturday.
--International Cherry Pit Spitting Day: in many cities, there are contests to see who can spit their cherry pit the farthest; check your local listings for an interesting outing and maybe even give it a go.
--International Day of Cooperatives: set aside by the UN, today celebrates the cooperative movement around the world that is people-centered and can be a self-sustaining way of addressing income inequality.
--International Kissing Day: today celebrates all kinds of kissing from the deeply romantic to the chaste pecks from Nana; in some cultures, kissing the cheek is a form of greeting; so pucker up and give your family a kiss today.
--National Air Traffic Control Day: no info as to why today and what specifically we're celebrating but these professionals deserve our salute for their work to keep air traffic organized and get everybody home safely.
--National Fried Chicken Day: the Scottish were the first Europeans to fry chicken in fat but with no seasoning; in West Africa, the chicken was seasoned and battered before frying in palm oil; the Southern Fried Chicken we know the most came from the South using a blend of the different ways of prepping fried chicken.
--Take Your Webmaster to Lunch Day: we often forget the people behind the websites we use the most; support the person keeping your computer world on a steady plane;
--Umbrella Cover Day: do you save the cover when you open your new umbrella or does it get shuffled aside?; I've seen ideas of using them such as to contain small, loose items.
--Virtually Hug a Virtual Assistant Day: this day honors the customer support folks who help others while working from home; could add teachers who teach online from home.
--San Fermin in Pamplona, Spain, begins today and will have the Running of the Bulls; get your sneakers on.
--the 106th Tour de France begins today near Brussels, Belgium; the race will be 3479 km (2162 miles).
