National Inane Answering Message Day
January 30, 2014 in the USA
Many people look at the title of this day and think ….huh!!? Some people think its a typo, and the day should read “National Insane Answering Message Day”. However, it actually and truly is “National Inane Answering Message Day”.
First lets clarify the meaning of an “inane” answering message. We all get them on our answering machines. An inane message is a senseless or meaningless message, or a prank call. Or, it could be an insane message.
So, National Inane Answering Message Day is the day set aside to change, shorten, replace or delete those ridiculous and/or annoying answering machine messages that waste the time of anyone who must listen to them. Trouble is…….how do you do that? In todays, world, caller Id is a great tool to accomplish this goal.

Day of Non-Violence
October 2, 2013 in the World

International Day of Non-Violence is observed on October 02, 2013. The International Day of Non-Violence is observed on the birthday of Mohandas Gandhi. This day is referred to in India as Gandhi Jayanti. In 2004, Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi had taken a proposal for an International Day of Non-Violence from a Hindi teacher in Paris teaching international students to the World Social Forum in Bombay.

The idea gradually attracted the interest of some leaders of India’s Congress Party until a Satyagraha Conference resolution in New Delhi in January 2007 initiated by Sonia Gandhi and Archbishop Desmond Tutu called upon the United Nations to adopt the idea. On 15 June 2007 the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence.

The resolution by the General Assembly asks all members of the UN system to commemorate 2 October in “an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness.”

Custodial Worker Day
October 2, 2013 in the USA

National Custodial Workers Day is today. Give your custodial worker a big thanks. At your school, church, hospital, place of employment, and a variety of other places, your custodial support are silently at work all year long. They are the workers who clean and keep in good repair, the facility that you enjoy. They seldom get recognition. They are usually in the background or “behind” the scene.

Take a minute on this day, to seek out custodial workers at your facility. Give them a big “TY” for all that they do to keep the facility sparkling and running like a top.
