"The kindest thing you can do for someone else is listen without forming an opinion." Lori Deschene

Somewhere at Autocorrect Headquarters: "Kiss" to "kick". "Catch" to "crotch". "Congratulations" to "come grab my fat shins".

This blonde decides one day that she is sick and tired of all these blonde jokes and how all blondes are perceived as stupid. So, she decides to show her husband that blondes really are smart. While her husband is off at work, she decides that she is going to paint a couple of rooms in the house.

The next day, right after her husband leaves for work, she gets down to the task at hand. Her husband arrives home and smells the distinctive smell of paint. He walks into the living room and finds his wife lying on the floor in a pool of sweat. He notices that she is wearing a heavy parka and a leather jacket at the same time.

He goes over and asks her if she if OK. She replies yes. He asks what she is doing and she replies that she wanted to prove to him that not all blonde women are dumb, and she wanted to do it by painting the house. He then asks her why she has a parka over her leather jacket. She replies that she was reading the directions on the paint can and it said… “FOR BEST RESULTS, PUT ON TWO COATS.”

It's Hug Holiday! Today is about giving hugs to those who need it such as the elderly and the sick. Hugs benefit both people with a sense of well-being. Since we're supposed to be maintaining a social distance, physical hugs aren't recommended right now but we can still check on others and give them virtual hugs to reassure them that they are not alone.
--Feast of Saints Peter and Paul Day: today is a Christian observance that honors the martyrdom of Peter and Paul and celebrates their role in Jesus's life.
--International Day of the Tropics: today is an UN initiative that raises awareness of the challenges faced by the world's tropical areas caused by deforestation, climate change, logging, and urbanization.
--International Mud Day: today reminds us to reconnect with the outdoors and the fun that mud reminds us of our childhoods; studies have shown that a little bacteria from playing in the dirt is good because it helps build our immunities.
--National Almond Buttercrunch Day: today is a salute to a very special treat; toffee is made with caramelized sugar and butter with almonds added just before hardening; the toffee was particularly popular back in the days of WWII because it was easy to wrap up and ship in care packages.
"--National Camera Day: do you remember your first camera?; cameras are important to society as a recorder of history and you get pictures of those escapades in the mud while getting closer to Nature; from hubpages ""The first cameras were the ""camera obscura"" device dating back thousands of years to the Greeks and even the ancient Chinese. The device was much like a pinhole camera and often used to project an image which would be traced on paper. The first actual photograph was taken around 1814 when Nicephore Niepce used a paper coated with silver chloride and was able to record an exposure to light, but the photo wasn't permanent. In 1827, he used a wooden camera made by Charles and Vincent Chevalier to make a more permanent photograph.
Louis Deguerre worked with Joseph Nicephore Niepce to create the first real photographic camera and technique (Nicephore Niepce died before the invention was completed). In1836, the first true photograph was produced using a copper plate with silver and coated with iodine vapor. Later, other inventors began to perfect this technique and created more efficient and practical cameras using dry and wet plates, twin reflex lenses with faster shutters which shortened exposure times, and smaller, more portable cameras.
The first film cameras were introduced in 1885 by George Eastman and his newly formed Kodak company. At first, the film was a chemically coated paper, but in 1889, they began to use celluloid. Kodak also helped produce smaller, more affordable cameras. In 1900, they began to mass produce the ""Brownie Box"" camera which was very popular all the way up to the 1960s. The first 35mm camera was created around 1913, but wasn't perfected and put into production until 1925. In the 1935, Kodak produced the first commercially viable color film. Since then, the 35mm camera has been changed and perfected with single reflex dominating over twin-reflex and cameras becoming easier and more compact to use. Many of the 35mm film cameras still used today haven't changed much since the mid-1960s.
Though the elements of digital photography began in the late 60s/early 70s, it wasn't perfected enough for mass use until late 80s/early 90s. Most of these cameras were low-resolution until after the mid-2000s when resolutions and digital lens technology began reach and succeed the level of quality similar to the 35mm camera."""
--National Waffle Iron Day: today is a salute to a fun breakfast staple; waffles date back to the 1300's in Greece, flat cakes made between 2 pans, topped with cheese and herbs; waffle cones were made in 1904 when the Banner Creamery Ice Cream ran out of bowls and tried waffles.
--Please Take My Children to Work Day: observed on the last Monday of June; today is to give the part-time and full-time stay-at-home parent a break from the constant being on duty and at the beck and call of the family; it's a good day to raise awareness of how much work and support is handled by the stay-at-home parent.
--World Industrial Design Day: industrial design is a process of design applied to products, manufactured through techniques for mass production; the professionals create the best tools of diverse working environments.
--World Scleroderma Awareness Day: a day of awareness about a rare, chronic, autoimmune rheumatic disease that hardens connective tissue; skin and internal organs can be damaged; it can be life threatening and currently there is no cure but successful treatments are available for individual organs.
--In 2007, Apple released the first iPhone. The iPhone revolutionized the smartphone industry and for a while made Apple one of the world's most valuable companies.
