Penguin Awareness Day!

Are you aware of penguins? Did you know that Sunday, January 20th is Penquin Awareness Day? On this day spend a little time learning about them.... a pictorial book or internet site is fun. You can also watch a documentary of these cute and popular, grounded birds. There have been a bunch of great movies about them in the past year or so....
This day would also a time to wear black and white---penguin colors. However, wearing a tuxedo in their honor is optional.

Need a necklace to go with your black and white???? How about this? (of course it can be found in my little shop! (

It is also popular today to tell a penguin joke or two. Here's a couple to get you started....
A man drives to a gas station and has his tank filled up. While doing this the clerk spots two penguins sitting on the back seat of the car. He asks the driver, "What's up with the penguins in the back seat?"
The man in the car says, "I found them. I asked myself what to do with them but, I haven't a clue."
The clerk ponders a bit then says, "You should take them to the zoo."
"Yeah, that's a good idea," says the man in the car and drives away.
The next day the man with the car is back at the same gas station. The clerk sees the penguins are still in the back seat of the car.
"Hey, they're still here! I thought you were going to take them to the zoo!"
"Oh, I did," says the driver, "and we had a great time. Today I'm taking them to the beach."
Q: How do Penguins drink their cola? A: On the rocks.
Q: What´s black and white and goes round and around? A: A Penguin in a revolving door.
