Tonight, on October 30th, screams of terror will be heard around the world as curious folk delve into the depths of their refrigerators. Ghouls and Goblins have nothing on that two month old casserole or the neglected wedge of cheese in the corner. Tupperware to seal out bacteria? More like, tupper-not!
These bacterial creepers are persistent, but a few (explicitly) imprinted promotional refrigerator magnets should send them packing. Just be ready for a re-match in a year.

Half donkey, half horse, and a whole lot of personality. These hybrid offspring were first introduced to The United States as a gift from Spain during the Washington Administration (president #1). Muchas Gracias, Spain!
So, mules are sterile. No reason to sugar-coat it. Chromosomes will be chromosomes. They probably don't even know the difference between sterility and, um, virility. If you sympathize with this hybrid breed, squeeze some promotional mule stress balls to celebrate their importation on October 26, 1785!

Looking forward to doing something exciting this October? Forget about the usual Oktoberfest and Halloween events. You have grown out of those. Why not try going over the Niagra Falls in a barrel with your grandma?
No seriously. The first person to survive going over the falls in any kind of contraption was Annie Edson Taylor, a 63-year-old former dance teacher down on her luck and looking for some fame. This happened on October 24 in 1901. No one repeated the feat untill 1911, but it's worth a try!
If you are one of the less risky, try using a promotional glacier barrel cooler to cool off from the stress of reading this post.

Evaluate your life day is sort of an annual precursor to a mid-life crisis. Fortunately, if your day of self-evaluation leads to self-loathing and other nasty feelings, it will only last a day! A mid-life crisis can last for years, and put quite the strain on your bank account.
Put everything down and think: am I headed in a direction that I want to be heading in? If not, relax, rewind, and re-evaluate with some promotional chocolates. They say it's an aphrodisiac. If you have determined are heading in the right direction in life, treat yourself to the chocolate anyway...it's an aphrodisiac.

What do the words entredentolignumologist, oxyosphresia,and zygodactyl have in common? I don't know what any of them mean. But, thanks to a Mr. Noah Webster (who's birthday in 1758 fell on this day), there are ways to remedy my ignorance.
Go ahead. I know you're curious to look those words up. You're a word master, it's what you do. Honor Mr. Webster himself by using promotional Webster's Dictionaries. If you're not convinced, consider this: without the advent of the Dictionary, we would never have been introduced to the game Pictionary, and honestly, what's better than Pictionary?

About 120 years ago today, people decided that they were tired of counting on fingers and abacuses. This day marks the anniversary of the day the patent was granted to Dorr Eugene Felt for the first adding machine to be completely accurate, aka the COMPTOMETER!!! It sounds more like some fierce fighting machine than one that counts. Nonetheless, thanks Mr. Felt...my accounting midterm would have been a lot more challenging and time consuming if you had never invented the COMPTOMETER!!!
As cool as the COMPTOMETER! sounds, I'm pretty sure the updated versions (calculators) give you more bang for your buck these days. Anyway, let's all cheers to Mr. Felt, and verify for yourself that 23489234.66x93423748.01= 2194452339823598.0266 with promotional calculators. If you're not a math person, you can also spell out some words on calculators if you flip them over, like "hello" and other words...

But life is about living in the moment. Hit the town with stylish promotional tote bags to store all of your aquired goodies!

World Smile Day gives everyone something to smile about! This year world smile day will be celebrated for the ninth time. It all began when Harvey Ball, a commercial artist, created the smiley face in 1963. It soon became an international symbol of goodwill. As the years passed Harvey Ball became concerned that the original meaning of the smiley face has been lost due to its commercialization. Out of this concern came his idea for World Smile Day.
Harvey Ball believed that even the smallest effort to improve the world was worthwhile. So, "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile," to take a part in this U.S. Congress proclaimed holiday.
Help keep a smile on everyone's faces with promotional smiley face logo toasters or promotional smiley face stress balls.

Today begins the celebration of Right-Brainers Rule Month. Those creative out-of-the box right-brainers that are often critcized in a completely left-brain dominant world. Yes, we may do things differently then everyone else but we get the job done in a way that works for us. Most right-brainers are left handed, which reminds me of a poem I know:
Since the right side of the brain
controls the left side of the body
then only left handed people
are in their right minds.
Here are some famous right-brainers: Leonardo DaVinci,Michelangelo,Raphael, Picasso, Lewis Carroll, Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, Paul McCartney, and Jimi Hendrix.
Being right-brained and generally different from the rest of the world can be stressful. Keep some promotional stress balls at the ready all month long.
