The world is your oyster…or so the saying goes. Direct translation, “YOU have control over the options in your life.”  Some philosophers believe this cliché represents an analogy to viewing your future as “a plate of oysters needing only to be pried open to be enjoyed with a pearl as a prize.” A bit corny, but factual for those unique individuals who crave the opportunity to step out of their “comfort zone” and enter the unknown. And if you are interested in adding exotic stamps in your passport from mysterious countries, you may actually be able to elevate your appeal as a candidate for employment.

Each year, on the cool fall date of October 22nd, the nutty people of the United States of America passionately celebrate National Nut Day.

October 13th, 2015

Do you recollect that famous rhyme we rehearsed in elementary school?  In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue….. Educators nationwide imparted this repetitive verse throughout during formative years.  We all acquired the  knowledge that when we celebrate Columbus Day annually on the second Monday of each year, we recognize the accomplishment of one of Italy’s premier explorers….the arrival Christopher Columbus in the Americas. But wise instructors and dedicated scholars are always disposed to poke around and dig a little deeper to uncover unknown truths for maximum classroom learning.
