A big thank you to the Barnes & Noble in Nanuet, New York.
They featured my book You’re a Leader, Charlie Brown in their list of graduation gift recommendations, and even tweeted out a picture. (Tagged me, too.)
I’ve never been to Nanuet, but it has suddenly made the short list of my future vacation spots.
Coincidence? Not even.

There’s egg on my face, but for the very best of reasons —
It’s World Egg Day!
Here at the Egg, we’re laying low to avoid the paparazzi, but there are celebrations of some import across the globe.
If you live in Bangladesh, grab one of the more than 5000 free boiled eggs being distributed, and attend “EGG FEST 2016.”
The Philippines is holding a charity Family Fun Run event in honor of eggs, and Canada is focusing their celebrations on the EFC — Egg Farmers of Canada — who apparently are very active in their communities, volunteering and donating eggs.
The American EGG Board has a video about an ‘Adventure Egg’ who travels the globe looking for great recipes, but I think the United Kingdom has the right idea. Their theme?
“Put an Egg on It” — to encourage folks to eat eggs in unusual ways.
Gasp — I just realized my sister is British.

I joked today on Facebook that I was going to commemorate Earth Day by posting a list of great movies that had the word “earth” in the title.
Turns out there are none.
Good movies, maybe. Kitschy films, definitely. But nothing that I would label a classic.
The word ‘dirt?’
A completely different story.
There’s Dirty Dancing, of course. And Dirty Harry. The Dirty Dozen. Even Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name just a few.
In the movie biz, it appears ‘dirt’ beats ‘earth’ by a mile.

During the month of October, we see a lot of scary things on TV, in movies, on ads in every walk of life — all because Halloween is coming.
But with the exception of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, I don’t think I have seen anything as scary as the couch at this hotel.
Actually, the photo makes it look kinda vintage. It’s not.
It’s a HORROR.

It’s National Lazy Day!
Not surprisingly, I can’t find too many festivities planned in celebration.
Of course, I didn’t really look all that hard.
It would be unseemly.
I may already be in trouble for using an exclamation point in my first sentence.
