As dogs seem to spend most of their life dozing, it can be difficult to see how activity on Work Like A Dog Day could be anything other than leisurely. In reality, Work Like A Dog Day is a chance to display the inner grit and determination normally demonstrated by canines when seeking sustenance as you go about your daily workplace chores. When was the last time you were really productive? Give colleagues and the boss an occasion to remember when you turn up early and dig in to that work pile with enthusiasm and drive.

If that all sounds like too much hard graft, Work Like A Dog Day is also an opportunity to reward those in your life who really do Work Like A Dog. Why not give the breadwinner a treat? Or take some of the load off their shoulders so they can enjoy some well-earned rest?

If you’re like many Americans, your mother warned you to always wear clean underwear in case you were “in an accident!” Although there are probably better reasons to wear fresh underwear, this is the one that most often comes to mind.

A national underwear manufacturer has taken the idea of fresh underwear one giant step further. They’re inviting everyone to participate in setting a new Guinness World Record by wearing their underwear to Times Square on “National Underwear Day,” August 5.

Freshpair founded National Underwear Day on August 5th, 2003. This year they are reaching out to “… cancer survivors struggling to regain their lives, men and women suffering with poor body image, and young and old embracing their sexuality.”

And: National Oyster Day

Did you know there are over 100 different species of oysters? They’re typically named after the body of water in which they’re grown because they take on the characteristics of the water they live in.

Here are some other interesting oyster facts:

  • The largest oyster-producing body of water in the world is located in Chesapeake Bay on the east coast of the U.S.
  • Almost two billion pounds of oysters are eaten each year.
  • In the U.S., east coast oysters tend to be smaller, milder and saltier. West coast oysters are creamy and sweet.
  • Only one out of every 10,000 oysters will produce a pearl.

To CELEBRATE?

Make or order a dish that uses oyster as one of its main ingredients.
