Since tomorrow is the first day of October, it wouldn’t be right to start the month without being aware of all the special topics honored and celebrated at this time. Besides hunting season, of course. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s also Adopt-A-Shelter-Animal Month, National Family History Month, National Pizza Month, and National Stamp Collecting Month. Stamp collecting, mind you, is different than the study of stamps, which is called philately. Happy October.
E-mail spam blockers are great. Until they start making assumptions about what is spam and what isn’t.
