Canadian Taxes Due

If any of my Loyal Readers are Canadian, then you probably already know your taxes are due before you go to sleep tonight. Canadian taxes must be post marked by midnight on April 30th of each year.

As bad as this might seem, at least you had a little bit longer to save up then your American neighbors did, as theirs was due on April 17th this year!

American Taxes Due

If any of my Loyal Readers are American, then their taxes are due tonight. Normally, taxes are due by midnight on April 15th, but this year April 15th is a Sunday, and Monday the 16th is a holiday in a couple of States, so the official IRS due date is midnight tonight.

Hopefully you made good use of the extra couple of days, and will see a nice big tax refund soon in your mailbox. Just think though, if you lived in Canada, they still wouldn't be due!

Friday the Thirteenth

How was your day today? The reason I am asking, is that today is Friday the Thirteenth. Now not everyone believes in the Friday the Thirteenth curse, not everyone is that superstitious, but some people do.

So my question today is really this, do those who believe quite strongly in it because of past experiences, cause bad luck to occur subconsciously to confirm their beliefs? Or does the bad luck happen because it is a bad luck kind of day, and this re-affirms their beliefs?

What do you my Loyal Readers think about all this? And who out there knows why when the thirteenth day of the month falls on a Friday, this is considered bad luck? The answer to that question will be a future article.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all my Loyal Readers who are celebrating Easter. For those of you who aren't, or don't, we hope you are having a very nice Sunday!

And if you did search for Easter Eggs, remember, that Easter Bunny is tricky. There's nothing worse than finding old Easter candy many months later. And it's always hidden where you least expect it!

Airplane Day?

So I propose today be known as the Unofficial Jumbo Jet Airplane Day. To those members of the Law Enforcement community, or those involved in Personal or Private Security, dates are typically written y-m-d. Therefore, today's date would be 7-4-7.

Now perhaps my name for the holiday is a tad too wordy, but let's see what we can come up with together. Who's behind me on this? After all, the most famous jumbo jet is the Boeing 747 airliner, at least until the Airbus A380 starts flying, and dates are never going to be in the form of 3-8-0 anyways! Am I right on this?

To celebrate today, I propose we all jump on a jumbo jet and fly or jet off somewhere. Since I'm a professional writer, I can't afford to do this, but in the spirit of the holiday, who wants to fund my way to celebrate the day on a hot beach somewhere else today?
