    This year September 21st falls on a Monday - mark your calendars - I'm planning on creating quite a stir at work because I plan on greeting people with "Happy Virginia O'Hanlon Day!" instead of a simple "hello" and see what transpires.

    "In 1897 eight year old Virginia O’Hanlon sent a letter to The Sun asking if Santa Claus really existed.

I was at a community planning meeting on Friday and as we discussed plans for a training event to take place on September 21st, I exclaimed; "Nice; this training event falls on Virginia O'Hanlon day!!!" No, they didn't remove me from the committee, but the statement made me happy. Virginia reads the editor's response.

    Doesn't that get your merry mojo workin'?!!! -surprise-
