Today, October 17, is the Sweetest Day and even sweeter for golfers because it is Mulligan Day, too. Sweet. Even sweeter is the next day, National Chocolate Cupcake Day.

After the sweet and yummy stuff, try to sit on the 19th for National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day. Good luck! Two days later is Informational Overload Day. That, of course, could mean a lot of different things, either way, TMI, right? Then CAPS Locks Day is on the 22nd, make sure you don't use it all the time, we don't want to yell at anyone.

Well, this is Adopt A Dog and Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month, and on the 24th it is Pit Bull Awareness Day. It is just saying don't judge a dog by its breed.

Make a Difference Day is also on the 24th.

October is the month of National Stop Bullying and Bullying Prevention. The week of 18-24 is Bullying Bystanders Unite Week and Freedom From Bullies Week. I read to wear orange on the 21st.

We cannot forget it is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this affects both men and women. Please remember to get a yearly mammogram and to do a self-examination once a month.

The sun is shining above ... Think Happy Thoughts.
