Give a thank you to your local dentist with a small token of appreciation such as a greeting card.


Pi Day

March 14th of every year is Pi Day. Why? Because 3/14 or 3.14 are the first 3 digits of Pi or Π , the given name to the ratio of circumference of a circle to the diameter. Pi is a constant ratio that never changes no matter the size of the circle. Π is an irrational number meaning that the digits never end or repeat in any known way. The first 100 digits of Pi are 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679

Historically, Julius Caesar was warned by oracles to "Beware of the Ides of March". Indeed he needed to since on the Ides of March in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated by Marcus Brutus and 60 conspiring Roman senators.


National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is always March 29th. This day is meant to celebrate small business owners and the individuals who spend countless hours growing their small business into a successful enterprise. Small business owners often have to do all the heavy lifting themselves and work overtime without pay. This sometimes comes at the cost of personal and family events. In retail, Mom and Pop shops bring different and unique products to the marketplace while providing a personal service that can't be supported by a large national chain. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators and patent holders of new innovative products.

How to celebrate? Shop locally.

Relax Talking Pen 4-pack

Pretty Neat
I gave these pens as Christmas gifts for my staff. They all loved them and thought they were funny. At first, they didn't know they were pens and that they talked. As far as quality, I am not sure how long they will last. It seemed like some of the pens hair kept falling put. Otherwise, I am glad I bought them for my staff. It brought many laughs to the office.
