Beer Can Appreciation Day
January 24, 2014 in the World

Beer Can Appreciation Day celebrates that great day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans.

Okay, laugh if you will. But, believe me when I say that Beer Can Appreciation Day is a big and important day to many people.

A lot of people do not know that there’s a huge number of beer can collectors out there. Collectors meticulously open a beer can from the bottom, empty it (and drink the beer, of course), then wash and dry it. For beer can collectors, there is no shortage of types of beer, cans and bottles, and sizes. A beer can collector may have hundreds of cans and bottles.

News You Can Use: There’s a market for beer cans. If you come across an old can, do not throw it out. Rather, check out the prices in a collector’s catalog, or on Ebay.

Beer Can Appreciation Day provides us with the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the many different kinds of beer cans. Enjoy today by starting, or adding to your beer can collection. As you empty the new cans, drink the contents. After all, you don’t want to be wasteful do you?

Compliment Day
January 24, 2014 in the World

How nice of you to visit our site today. I can see by your choice of websites, that you are an intelligent person. You are a kind and inquisitive person. I love the way you……

Yes, its Compliment Day. Today is a great opportunity to say something positive about the people you come into contact with. Everyone has good attributes. …that’s right……. everyone.

Its a cinch to find compliments for family and loved ones, even for your Mother-in-Law. (Tip: She’s probably a good cook.)

Friends are friends because you see something good about them. Here’s an easy compliment to a friend: “Wow, you’re very intelligent…you choose your friends wisely”.

It’s more challenging to compliment your boss, or people you don’t like. Take up the challenge, and find a compliment for them today, too.

Remember: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything”. After a long search for something good, if you just can’t find a compliment for them, then silence is golden.

Compliment Day is celebrated by offering sincere compliments to people you know. It is important that you are sincere. People will see right through insincerity, and you will do more harm than good.
