NATIONAL AUNT AND UNCLES DAY

Annually recognized on July 26, it is Aunt and Uncles Day!  Spending holiday’s together, special family times and when we are lucky; sleepovers, aunts and uncles often form a special place in our hearts and fill our lives with fun, laughter, love and wonderful memories.  They are someone that we can turn to and trust and we know that they will be there for us.

Today we are thankful for our mom and dad’s, brothers and sisters and want to let them know that and just how special they are to us and the important part they have had in our lives.  It would be a good time to get out the old photograph albums and look through the pictures, reliving memories of earlier days around the Christmas tree or at the 4th of July picnic or maybe at the beach vacation that was spent with your special aunts and uncles.

To celebrate National Aunt and Uncles Day, give them a call, stop by for a visit, send them a card or a bouquet of flowers or maybe take them out for a nice dinner.

NATIONAL DISABILITY INDEPENDENCE DAY

National Disability Independence Day is celebrated each year on July 26.  This day commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26th, 1990.

The Americans with Disabilities Act provides protection from employment discrimination as well as better access to goods, services and communications for people with disabilities.

“At the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act July 26, 1990, President George Bush stated, “Three weeks ago we celebrated our nation’s Independence Day. Today we’re here to rejoice in and celebrate another ‘Independence Day,’ one that is long overdue. With today’s signing of the landmark Americans for Disabilities Act, every man, woman and child with a disability can now pass through once-closed doors into a bright new era of equality, independence and freedom.”

HAPPY NATIONAL DISABILITY INDEPENDENCE DAY

NATIONAL SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR APPRECIATION DAY

Each year, on the last Friday in July, it is National System Administrator Appreciation Day.  This day is also known as Sysadmin Day, SysAdminDay, SAD or SAAD.

National System Administrator Day was created to show appreciation for the work of sysadmins and other IT workers.  The official SysAdmin Day website includes suggestions for the proper observation of this day.  http://sysadminday.com/

There are some geek and Internet culture businesses, like ThinkGeek and CafePress, that honor today’s holiday with special product offerings, discounts and contests and various filk songs have been written to commemorate System Administrator Day.  E-cards are available to be sent to celebrate this special occasion.

This holiday has been recognized and has been promoted by many IT professional organizations, the League of Professional System Administrators and Sage/Usenix.

NATIONAL SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR APPRECIATION DAY HISTORY

National System Administrator Appreciation Day, an “unofficial” national holiday was created by Ted Kekatos.  Kekatos was inspired by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator was given flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as a ‘thank-you’ for installing new printers.  Prior to seeing this advertisement, Kekatos had just installed several of the same model of printers at his place of work.   The first System Administrator Appreciation Day was celebrated on July 28, 2000.

NATIONAL ALL OR NOTHING DAY

How will your day go today?  It is National All or Nothing Day.  Celebrated each year on July 26, people use this day to throw caution to the wind and go for it.

Everyone has at least one thing that they would like to try, need to do or want to do but might be fearful or hesitant to do so. Today is the day to go ahead and do it, take that first step and go for it.

 Today we wish you the best on National All or Nothing Day!
