November 25th World Safari Day

November 25th World Safari Day

The jungles are diminishing all over the world as we build new homes, shopping malls and use the products found there quicker than they can be reproduced. The African Bush Camps company has decided to do something about that by creating today for people to become aware of the preservation and rejuvenation required to keep nature from being destroyed. How about going on a safari using a camera to shoot animals instead of a rifle or bow!?! It is more daring and takes an equal amount of skill or perhaps, even more.

How to celebrate – Go on a camera safari. Give to organizations trying to save the wilderness. Tell me one good reason you need to kill an elephant.

March 30th I Am In Control Day

Have you ever said something and instantly regretted it? Well that is what today is all about. Back in 1981, when President Ronald Reagan was wounded and the Vice President (George W. Bush) was not readily available, Alexander Haig told all not to worry, he was in control. Haig was the Secretary of State at the time and really had no way of taking control but he simply meant he would keep the government together until Bush could be sworn in, if needed. Turns out it wasn’t needed but so many people took exception to Haig’s statement that he had to resign (yep cancel culture was a thing back then too). It was simply one of those moments he should have kept his mouth shut.

How to celebrate – Read about the assassination attempt on on Ronald Reagan’s life. Think about what you say before you say it. Never allow anything you say to be quoted!
