Wednesday, the 11th of March, 2015 is the 70th day in 2015 and in the 11th calendar week.
General Events:
World Plumbing Day
March 11, 2015 in the World
World Plumbing Day is an international event, initiated by the World Plumbing Council, held on 11 March each year to recognise the important role plumbing plays in societal health and amenity.
The WPC, through its member countries and its partnerships with bodies like the World Health Organisation, works all year round to promote the benefits of safe plumbing, but in 2010 it decided to launch the concept of embedding a single day on the world’s calendar dedicated to plumbing. The idea was that on March 11 each year people all over the world would pause to reflect on the vital role plumbing plays in preserving their health and way of life – in the case of countries like ours – or in building sustainable disease free futures for millions in the developing world.
And so World Plumbing Day was born, and it is big and getting bigger all the time. Today, on the continents of Australia, Europe and Africa events are organised to mark the occasion and draw attention to the importance of good plumbing and sanitation. In China, England, Germany, India, Canada, North and South America and many more places industry leaders – like us here today – governments, policy makers, and community based organisations are promoting World Plumbing Day.
Right now, today, in offices and training colleges, on worksites and in classrooms, and in legislatures and Parliaments around the world, World Plumbing Day is being marked and recognised. In media releases and magazine articles in Chinese, Hindi, English, German and Spanish the message about the link between good plumbing sanitation and human and environmental health is reaching millions of people each March.

National Worship of Tools Day
March 11, 2015 in the USA
March 11th is National Worship of Tools Day.  A day to out into the garage, the tool shed, the storage closet or where ever it is you keep your tools.  You can clean them, reorganize them,  make something new with them or maybe go to the store and buy a new one.
It is hard to imagine the world without tools as they are a part of our daily lives.  From the hammer,  the screwdriver and the wrench to the most sophisticated tools.  Upon their use, they sometimes get rusty and need shined, they get dirty and need cleaned, they get dull and need sharpened and etc.  National Worship of Tools Day would be the day to spend some extra time shining them up or fixing them up if they needed it.  Taking care of your tools helps them to last longer, which in turn is a benefit for you.
 Please note, there are more than a few ladies who love to work with their hands, and find today to be an important holiday.
