Saturday 6

Saturday 6: 6 Special Days in November

This week's edition of the Saturday 6 focuses on some quirky "holidays" in November that you might enjoy participating in. Earlier this week, on Wednesday to be exact, we experienced “National Use Your Common Sense Day,” set on the birthday of humorist Will Rogers. I hope you celebrate that day every...

That McDonald’s Drive-Thru Recording Really Needs to Go!

It's time for McDonald's to do one of two things: either make sure there's always someone on standby to take your order the moment you drive up to its drive-thru order board, or ditch the recording that asks for your order once and for all. Sometimes, technology doesn't help us....

7 Clever T-Shirts from Sky Mall I’d Probably Wear

Some t-shirts can be quite clever. I found clever t-shirts listed for sale at Sky Mall during a recent flight to visit my best friend and his family, and thought I'd share a few favorites. When you're on a plane and you're not particularly fond of being that high up...

Some single people I know hate Valentine’s Day because they’re single and they think that the occasion only serves to remind them of their singleness. I call that a lot of hogwash: it’s not like they weren’t aware they were single on February 13th, and it’s not likely they’re able...

10 Offbeat Holidays for February

There’s always Valentine’s Day if you’re looking for something to celebrate in the year’s shortest month, but if you don’t have a significant other to take to dinner, you might feel left out. (I don’t: I usually go dine alone in a nicer restaurant: since I am alone rather than...
