“Raise-a-Reader Day in BC”…”Pop-up shop for a timbit?!”…”It’s Go Home on Time Day: but who will actually manage it?!”…
Yes! Today’s the day that celebrities around the province hand out the Vancouver Sun for free & encourage donations to promote literacy in British Columbia.
BC’s a great province! Get out there, grab a Vancouver Sun and read all about it!!!…
A public relations stunt by Canadians beloved Tim Hortons in the Oakridge neighbourhood of Calgary had residents waking up to gift baskets on their doorsteps with a note saying follow the timbits for free coffee & donuts! Just a tease, the shop was only there for one day and was part of an employee recruitment campaign.
Cheers to fun in the neighbourhood!…
In some parts of the world today, it’s #GoHomeOnTimeDay.
Apparently, it’s a day set aside by a UK charity “to highlight how work increasingly encroaches on family life.”
“For some, there is no choice except to work punishingly long days, sometimes at more than one job. Others forced unhappily into part-time jobs would leap at the chance for more hours. But many will be familiar with not wanting to be the first to be seen leaving the office, or the feeling that the boss just likes to see you at your desk. Some just enjoy work and are fulfilled by putting many hours in.”
Many report work & family life in “constant conflict.” Several studies have revealed that it could be “all for nothing” as long working hours do not equal higher productivity.”
So there you have it:
Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires. ~Charles Caleb Colton
Methinks I see the wanton hours flee,
And as they pass, turn back and laugh at me.
Wonderful weekday Wednesday!
