ELMO'S BIRTHDAY We all recognize Elmo as the furry red monster Muppet with big eyes on Sesame Street. Elmo was described himself as three and a half years old. Listen carefully, he characteristically refers to himself in the third person. For example, "Elmo wants a cookie." or "Elmo has a question." Elmo indeed is popular. In fact, in 1996 his "Tickle Me Elmo" doll was one of the most sought after Christmas gifts for children (and some adults alike). Have a birthday party today for Elmo and encourage your friends to come in character. What fun Let yourself go and spend the evening behaving as Muppets would - carefree and loving. Revolve the party around Elmo trivia. See how many shows you can name that Elmo has appeared on. A couple of these are the "West Wing" and "The Rosie O'Donnell Show". What is the name of Elmo's pet goldfish? (Dorothy) The list of trivia for this character is quite long because of his popularity. Have fun with this February Celebration.

THANK A MAILMAN DAY Today's the day to recognize someone who is daily providing a necessary service for you...Your MAIL CARRIER!! Through rain, hail, sleet and snow he or she makes sure that your mail and packages are delivered. Most of us don't realize how the mail carrier can effect our daily lives...he delivers our bills (UGH!) that must get paid but he also delivers us messages of joy: Valentine's Day cards, birthday greetings and Christmas cards by the dozens! Don't forget the wonderful parcels of gifts that we receive from the postal service too! They are also delivered by the trusty mail person. Take a moment for today's February Celebration to appreciate and recognize your mail carrier. Our Postal Carrier's name is Larry and he always does his job cheerfully and with pride. THANKS, LARRY!!
