Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and hope to see you back here tomorrow, don’t forget to follow me……in the mean time, have an amazing awesome day and celebrated life every day because there is a National food/beverage or special holiday every day!

For event planners use these days as part of your planning, when you meet with your client discuss the date that they have chosen falls under this National day and then explain why not create the theme around this day!
Now you helped the client nail down a theme and also part of the meal planning, for example like today is National Blonde Brownie day, so speak to the chef and ask them to do blonde brownie for the dessert for the event, why not add a little spice to it and be creative with the title of the event and name it something like: The Celebration of Blondie’s Day! Now I got you thinking ….. can you come up with some great titles with using today’s National Blonde Brownie Day & Celebration of Life Day! Break the ice and be the first to leave your comments in the comments area on what you come up with….. This is a great exercise for event planners or anyone who plans parties, festivals, events, conferences, grand openings, weddings and the list goes on……..and so do life!

Today is also National Hugging Day!
I remember a couple of years ago when we had a youth group who book at the Conference Centre for a summer camp retreat in teaching youths on creating a better world we live in with learning and creating peace into today’s society.
They had sign posted in the hallway outside the meeting room “FREE HUGS” along with a piece of paper on their shirt marked “FREE HUGS” when on break walking the hallways. It was up beat, smiles, and lots of hugging with everyone and anyone from all types of backgrounds no matter who you where. This group was spreading a message to everyone who they came across with in giving FREE HUGS to strangers even myself. It created a happy feeling in people’s eyes when they were hugged, it was amazing to see a positive feeling in the youth group who took it further by going out to the mall close by to give FREE HUGS to strangers and to see what kind of respond they will get in return.
They had managed to give out a lot of FREE HUGS in a couple of hours as people could not believe what was taking place in front of their own eyes. It was probably the most happiest mall with happy shoppers all getting hugs to relief shopping stress. It was a way to set an example for the world, was to see the good in everybody and to create peace and friendship instead of war. While wars where taking place back then in other countries and still are today along with ongoing suicide bombers we all need to step up to the plate and some time hug someone you love, care, or even a stranger like in the case of the youth camp did a couple of years ago! I believe they have grown and are still reaching out to all the communities to help get the message out for world peace.
The only sad thing was that mall security did not like what they where doing and had to remove them all for being on private property for socializing which the group carry on to a bigger mall downtown in the city of Toronto.
FREE HUGS were born again and again and again till security had caught up with the youth group to have them removed again. So they had decided to move on to the streets of downtown Toronto, the longest street in the world that I know of is called Yonge Street. So today let’s all not be law enforcers and just hug someone you love, care, or a friend, neighbour, classmate, co-worker, customer, client, teacher, boss or even your pet.
Happy Hugging Day!
My free hugs to everyone online today! But that will be hard to do! …..O.K. maybe we should come up with National Hug your screen/monitor Day! ……. lol 😉

“The Bloggers Nightmare” on Hospitality Street by Phil Lim
Here are my top 15 list for not blogging and trying to make it over the hurdle!

1. The BIGGEST hurdle is creating value for the reader
2. Building the momentum to have followers keep coming back and follow my blog!
3. Spelling mistakes and grammar
4. Using key words for search engines and tags
5. Title, title, title ………………. its like real estate, location, location, location
6. Links, Video’s, articles and photos that support your post
7. Building online trust, relationship building and branding
8. Bringing Community awareness and engagement as a true professional experience blogger
9. Building the blog pages, “TRUE CONTENT” They say if you build it, they will come………
10. Freebies ……let me think what can I give away today? To hook them!
11. Making money with my blog? ……..who said this was easy?
12. S.E.O. …..Traffic, traffic, traffic! where is everybody?
13. What’s in it for me, which I mean for my readers
14. It takes lots of my time & effort in thinking, researching, & more researching, any short cuts, tricks or apps that will help?
15. Can’t get enough sleep……..OMG! (One More Go) at this…..LOL (Let’s Offer Love) & maybe everyone will come?

Happy blogging to all my fellow bloggers new and old, good luck, stay positive, stay focus and be yourself.

Closing Quote
“Cheer for endings – whether goals have been met or not –
whether the ending is tidy or ragged.
Without endings, there would be neither the opportunity
nor the incentive to think new thoughts,
and to begin great new projects.”
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

“Food responds to our soul’s dream as to our stomach’s appetite.”
Joseph Delteil, French writer (1894-1978)

“To dream that you are eating garlic denotes that you will discover hidden secrets and meet with some domestic jar. To dream that there is garlic in the house is lucky.”
Richard Folkard in ‘Plant Lore’ (1884) 

“To see cucumbers in a dream denotes that you will speedily fall in love. Or, if you are in love, then you will marry the object of your affection.”
Richard Folkard in ‘Plant Lore’ (1884)
