Today we celebrate:

Hug Your Boss Day – Generally celebrated on the third Friday of August, although some say it is to be celebrated on August 21st. This is a day to increase motivation and morale by loosening up a little and giving your boss a hug. Unless you think that it would not be welcome, in which case, don't do anything to jeopardize your job.

National Airborne Day – This is a day created by George W. Bush in 2001 and approved by the United States Congress. The purpose of today is to honor our nation's airborne branch of the Armed Forces. Airborne fighting tactics have been very important to the success of innumerable battles during every war since it's creation right after World War I.

Joe Miller's Joke Day – This is a day to tell a joke in celebration of Joseph Miller, an English comic actor born sometime in the year 1684. He died on this day in 1738. During his life, he was a popular actor at the Drury Lane Theatre in London.

National Rum Day – It's kind of appropriate that my oldest daughter is watching Pirates of the Caribbean as I write this since Captain Jack Sparrow loves rum so much. If you enjoy drinking it too, and you are 21 years of age or older, this is a day for you.

Men's Grooming Day –
Celebrated on the third Friday in August, this is a day that was created by American Crew, a company that makes men's grooming products. Some barbershops and salons participate in this day with special grooming related events for men.

To celebrate today, salute any airborne planes you see flying overhead today. If you see any planes flying overhead that are not airborne, run for your life. When you get to work, give your boss a hug to start the day off on a positive note. Then at lunch go to a barbershop for a grooming. At dinner tonight, toast Joe Miller with a rum drink and tell the family a joke.
